Nissan expressed the 2017 Sentra NISMO would come in under $25,000, which turns out to be correct only until you increase the obligatory end fee, at which component this brand-new sport compact comes out to $25,855. That base value applies to both the CVT automatic transmission and the six-speed manual transmission, the latter of which seems the apparent decision for this turbocharged sedan car. Besides those two transmission decisions, the only other plant options for the Sentra NISMO are a Aspen White out color that’s $295 additional and a $1220 Premium collection that adds a Bose audio system and a 5.8-inch touchscreen with navigation system and satellite radio.
Heated rooms, a proximity key and a backup camera are regular on the Sentra NISMO, as is a 188-hp 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder motor and all manner of out and indoor trim parts including microsuede sections for the driving wheel, a body case, and 18-inch wheels covered in 215/45 all-season tires. Summer tires are elective, but Nissan hasn’t yet given a value for those.
We’re a bit perplexed as to why the NISMO costs $3000 more than the $22,855 Sentra SR Turbo, which has the same 188-hp motor. The NISMO performance care, after all, only really assets to immobile mixture adjusting and the same trim qualities.
Adding more issues, for Nissan is the information that this Sentra costs a bit more than the more cacophonous, 252-hp Ford Focus ST ($25,650) and inches up against Volkswagen Golf GTI ($26,415). That’s not to mention the Ford Fiesta ST, which has 9 more horsepower and a high entertaining cause than the Sentra NISMO and costs thousands less ($21,995). Perhaps Nissan looked only internally when fixing the Sentra NISMO’s value.
