2014 Nissan Sentra Exterior

2014 Nissan Sentra Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Completely redesigned in 2013
  • FE+ package offered which improves highway fuel economy to 40 highway mpg
  • Adds a few small features and adjust transmission turning for 2014
The 2014 Nissan Sentra gets a few small additions after a complete redesign last year that brought new styling and improved fuel economy to the compact sedan.

From a styling perspective, the Sentra is at first glance pretty conservative; it doesn’t have the dramatic edges found on the new Corolla or the curvy lines of the Elantra, but its staidness does it a favor. The high sides give it authority and a sharp character line below the side windows offers enough drama to keep it from being boring. 17-inch alloy wheels are optional, as are a long list of exterior styling enhancements like fog lights, a spoiler, and a power moonroof.

Under the hoods, the 2014 Sentra has a 130-hp, 1.8-liter four-cylinder that is mated to a CVT in most applications (a six-speed manual is only offered on base S trim models).  The front-wheel drive Sentra is offered in five trim levels and two of them, the S and SV, can be outfitted with the FE+ (fuel economy plus) package which adds aerodynamic improvements that slightly enhance highway fuel economy to 40 mpg. CVT models still get 30/39 mpg city/highway.

The five-seat Sentra offers excellent cargo space (15.1 cubic feet) and plenty of standard features, including remote keyless entry, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, air conditioning, auxiliary audio input, and power windows/locks.  Previously, the Sentra’s interior had a lot of plastic, but the redesign added better materials and more soft touch surfaces which gives it a classier feel. There are also plenty of premium features such as leather upholstery, heated front seats, and maple wood-tone interior trim pieces. Tech options include Bluetooth connectivity, dual-zone automatic climate control, and NissanConnect with navigation that includes a 5.8-inch touch-screen.

The Sentra is an IIHS Top Safety Pick and comes with six airbags, antilock brakes, and electronic stability with brake assist and traction control standard.
