Spruced up for the 2024 model year with a new grille and a more efficient continuously variable automatic transmission, the Nissan Sentra sedan creeps up $430 from the 2023 model’s base price to $21,725 (all prices include $1,095 destination).
Sentra buyers get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 149 horsepower and 146 pounds-feet of torque; it’s paired to a CVT and drives the front wheels. For 2024, Nissan says the new CVT and newly standard idle stop-start bump fuel economy slightly, up to 30/40/34 mpg city/highway/combined for the S and SV trims and 30/38/33 mpg for the SR (official EPA estimates are not yet available).
Also included on every Sentra is Nissan’s Safety Shield 360, a tech package that includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, blind spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert with automatic braking, and lane departure warning. Optional safety tech includes adaptive cruise control and a 360-degree camera system. The available SV Premium Package also now includes an eight-speaker Bose Premium audio system, the 360-degree camera system and exterior mirror turn signals.
