Is the Nissan Sentra a compact economy car or a mid-sized sedan? Nissan says one thing, the EPA says another. It's true that like many other Japanese cars, the Nissan Sentra has grown over the years since it was introduced in 1982. Chances are, all you really care about is the fact that your Nissan Sentra starts and drives reliably while not consuming a lot of precious fuel. You can help keep it that way by making sure the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule is followed, and that you use only high-quality components. A little more spent on your Nissan Sentra's maintenance needs today such as filters, fluids and ignition components like plugs and distributor parts - means a lot less spent on repairs tomorrow.

Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra is a passenger vehicle that has been on the market since 1982. It was originally placed in the subcompact category, but for model year 2000 it was reclassified into the compact category and became a mid-size in 2007. Until 2006 the Sentra was a revamped export version of the Japanese Sunny, but beginning in model year 2013 it was rebadged as an export version of the Nissan Sylphy. The first three generations of the Sentra were called Nissan Tsuru in Mexico, and the B13 model is still marketed and sold under that name right next to the updated and rebadged Sentra models.

The Sentra currently serves as a compact car for Nissan in spite of its classification as a mid-size vehicle because of the increased interior space that began with the 2007 model. The reason the name "Sentra" was created was because the manufacturer wanted consumers to understand the car was quite safe in spite of its small size. The name sounds a little like a combination of central and sentry which projects images of safety.

The first generation arrived in the United States in May 1982 and was a replacement for the Datsun 210. The first Nissan Sentras were imported from Japan and were available in four body styles: two-door sedan, four-door sedan, five-door wagon, and three-door hatchback coupe. The Sentra was the second Nissan to be marketed with a model name instead of a number--the first one was the Nissan Stanza which was introduced at the New York Auto Show in 1981 as a 1982 model. The B11 Sentra was the first Sunny model to use a front-engine front-wheel drive instead of a front-engine, real-wheel drive.

When the Sentra was released the Environmental Protection Agency classified it as having the highest gasoline mileage (MPG) among all cars with gasoline engines that were sold at that time: 43 MPG city, 58 MPG highway, and a combined 48 MPG. The fact the vehicle had a curb weight of only 1,875 pounds helped it achieve that number. The gasoline mileage the Sentra achieved was a special configuration that included a three-way exhaust catalyst combined with a fuel metering unit that was electronically controlled in order to automatically monitor the mixture of air-fuel. This allowed it to make adjustments in order to increase the fuel mileage.

The seventh generation Sentra was unveiled in August 2012 and was completely redesigned inside and out. The upgraded styling gave the model a look that was more similar to other Nissan sedans. The upgrades also included LED tail lamps, a new electronics and navigation system, and changes to the head lamps.

The seventh generation Sentra first went on sale in early 2013 in Australia and is called the Nissan Pulsar in that country. The Sentra debuted in Russia in 2014 with a 1.6 engine and 5 speed manual or CVT transmission. The facelift for the 2016 Nissan Sentra includes new truck, wheels, front and rear bumpers, hood, and lights. It was redesigned to closer resemble the Maxima and Altima.
