2016 Nissan Sentra Quotes near La Quinta CA
2016 Nissan Sentra
The Sentra is Nissan’s entry-level sedan, serving as a lower-cost introduction to the Nissan brand. While still a very high quality vehicle with a spacious and quality interior and respectable performance, it did lag a little behind its larger and better-appointed siblings. The 2016 Sentra changes that. The new model features a new re-tuned suspension for better performance and the advanced electronic power steering from the Nissan Altima as well as a slew of new comfort, luxury and safety options, allowing you to turn it into an almost-luxury compact sedan at the higher trim levels. So if you liked the previous incarnation of the Sentra but thought that it lacked in features or performance, now is the time to request a 2016 Sentra quote from Palm Springs Nissan. We are a Nissan Sentra dealer serving Palm Springs La Quinta Hemet Cathedral City shoppers with some of the most competitive 2016 Nissan Sentra Quotes near La Quinta CA.
The interior is one of the areas where Nissan has pushed the Sentra to the next level this year. It is still one of the most spacious compact sedans on the market right now with lots of legroom and headroom, even for taller passengers in the back seat, as well as a cavernous trunk. In terms of space, it is almost a mid-size sedan. The interior design that mixes matte soft-touch plastics with shiny metallic accents looks almost premium on the entry-level models and can be confused with luxury at the high-end SL trim - one of the most requested in our Nissan Quotes to La Quinta. If you want a Sentra with high-end options like a leather interior, power driver’s seat and premium Bose audio, this is the one to ask for when you request a 2016 Sentra quote from Palm Springs Nissan.
If you visit our Nissan Sentra dealer serving Palm Springs La Quinta Hemet Cathedral City shoppers to compare the 2015 and the 2016 Sentra side-by-side, you may notice small exterior changes that belie the massive interior improvements. The front and the rear of the car have been adjusted slightly to look more in line with the recent Altima and Maxima redesigns, which were in turn inspired by the new Rogue and Murano. The rest of the car keeps its conservative-but-dynamic styling introduced in 2014. The exception is the SR trim level, which adds a few sporty touches to give it a real performance feel, including 17-inch wheels and high-performance tires. If you are looking for something sporty, take advantage of our 2016 Nissan Sentra Quotes near La Quinta CA and get the Sentra SR.
The engine and transmission are one of the few things that remain unchanged between the 2015 and the 2016 Nissan Sentra. As you can see when you request a 2016 Sentra quote from Palm Springs Nissan, there is only one engine option: a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with a maximum output of 130 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. That, however, is easily enough to quickly propel the light compact around. It is available with a six-speed manual transmission for the more hands-on enthusiasts, but the continuously variable transmission is by far the more popular option thanks to its responsiveness and efficiency.
2016 has been the year of big changes for the mechanical aspects of the Nissan Sentra. Last year’s power steering system has been swapped out in favor of an adapted version based on the Nissan Altima. It is responsive and precise and features a speed-sensitive adjustment, giving it a sharper feel when performing high-speed maneuvers on the highway and a gentle precise feel when navigating at low speed. Another big change is the re-tuned suspension, which is approximately 10 percent stiffer than last year’s. Combined with the innovative new brake-controlled steering assist, it makes it one of the best-handling Sentras Nissan has ever built, and thanks to our exclusive Internet Quotes to La Quinta Shoppers, it is also one of the easiest to buy.
A common reason to choose a larger vehicle like the Altima or the Maxima over the Sentra is a concern over safety, but it far from justified. The Sentra has impressive crash test scores, even by the exacting Nissan standards and the 2016 Sentra has also adopted its older siblings’ advanced safety suite as well. The suite, called “Intelligent Safety Shield Technologies”, incorporates blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts as well as a forward collision warning system with automated emergency braking. The Sentra has already been a favorite with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, earning a maximum score in all of their crash tests as both a 2015 and a 2016 model. The new active safety features elevate the Sentra into the IIHS’s most exclusive club as a Top Safety Pick Plus. To learn more about the Intelligent Safety Shield and other Sentra safety features, contact Palm Springs Nissan. The Nissan Sentra is an amazing compact sedan for those who are looking for a little extra comfort and style in their vehicles and the 2016 Nissan Sentra makes the deal even sweeter with improved performance, additional features and boosted safety.
