    Kaya nga.

    Eh hindi naman yun yung tinitignan ng mga buyers, usually price talaga nakakapagdecide kung go sila or hindi.

    Hindi mo naman pwede sabihin: "Ay sir kahit na budget mo 850k i-stretch mo na para dito sa sa sentra na galing sa mexico!"

    Hehehe. Sana nga manggaling ng Thailand yung Sentra na dadating dito, and sana naman under 950k for entry level. Siguro atleast 899k para mura pakinggan. Haha.

    I have a feeling that the top of the line could be marketed as Nissan Sentra Sylphy Series 7 CVT Exalta SE Elite.

    Pwede rin naman nila kunin sa China yun units since we're both left hand drive. Sa Thai kasi kung konti demand sa left hand, ayaw nila i-produce.

    Will be on sale this fall in US.

    The new Nissan Sentra has 130 hp. That’s a number surpassed by every car in its class. Plus, it’s less than the outgoing Sentra had. In fact, the 2013 Sentra is outgunned by the ’94 Sentra SE-R. To paraphrase Dr. Zoidberg: Nissan, your horsepower numbers are bad and you should feel bad.

    From Mini Maxima to Mini Altima

    Last November, Nissan’s head of design told us that he didn’t feel Nissan needed a consistent, familial design language. He must have been talking about the difference between the Juke and Xterra, because the addition of the Sentra to Nissan’s lineup gives the company three very similar-looking sedans.

    Only nominally changed from the global Sylphy sedan we saw in April, the Sentra is a dead ringer for the Altima up front, and a familial resemblance to the Versa is clear. Nissan says the Sentra’s beltline is lower than the outgoing car’s, but with oversized design elements like giant taillights and bulbous front wheel arches, the new Sentra suffers from smallsedanitis. The stubbiness is especially pronounced with the optional Sport front and rear fasciae and lower sill extensions, making the Sentra look even fuller vertically. Often, a zaftig appearance like the Sentra’s is lessened in person—but the cars in these photos already are wearing optional 17-inch wheels.

    Those are real LEDs you’re seeing dressing up the headlights and taillights; they’re standard equipment. The chrome-ish door handles, window trim, and a strip on the trunk are decent upscale touches.


    Spacious Interior, But is there a But?

    Have any doubt that size sells? Look at the Versa: Unremarkable in virtually every category, underpowered, and cheap-feeling, it’s big and has a large back seat. And Nissan is on pace to sell more than 100,000 in the U.S. this year. Good thing, then, that the Sentra also is substantial inside.

    Here’s how Nissan’s engineers and designers did it: compared to the outgoing car, Nissan stretched the Sentra’s wheelbase 0.6 inch and lengthened the sedan 2.3 inches overall. As a result, the Sentra has 37.4 inches of rear legroom, topping the Hyundai Elantra (33.1 in), Chevy Cruze (35.4), and even the Honda Civic (36.2), and falling about a half-inch short of VW’s Jetta (38.1). Other dimensions seem ample, too.

    How this is all executed is critical. Many of the Sentra’s competitors have high-quality interior materials with great fit and finish, and a Versa- or Jetta-like cheapening will scare off customers. Nissan says that the instrument panel and driver’s door armrest—yup, just that side—are done in soft-touch plastic, and the Sentra has attractive-looking electroluminescent gauges. We’ll have to wait for an in-person session to find out whether the end result is as premium as Nissan claims, though.


    Now Some Decent Numbers

    On a quest for fuel economy, the Sentra’s drag coefficient improves from 0.34 to 0.29. The new car is 150 pounds lighter than the car it replaces, which logged 2915 pounds on the C/D scale in December 2006. Nissan says the continuously variable transmission has been significantly revised, and offers a wider gear ratio to help both performance and fuel consumption. Also on the fuel-economy front, the Sentra uses electric power steering.

    Finally, and probably most significantly, the Sentra now houses a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine rather than the outgoing model’s 2.0-liter plant. It features continuously variable valve timing, but in the Sentra’s announcement, Nissan makes no mention of direct injection. Consequently, we’re looking at engine output of just 130 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, leaving the Sentra behind even the about-to-be-replaced Toyota Corolla in terms of power.

    Whether car shoppers are seduced—or even persuaded—by a mile per gallon here or there on window stickers is any marketer’s guess, but the Sentra does at least have the numbers to compete. Nissan’s compact is rated at 30 mpg city and 39 on the highway when equipped with the CVT; the latter climbs to 40 with the optional FE+ package. Although a six-speed manual is available on the most basic Sentra model, its EPA rating isn’t yet available.


    Lots of Options, But Not So Much Standard

    The good news is that on all Sentras, a tilting and telescoping steering wheel is standard, as are remote keyless entry, a split-folding rear seat, A/C, and power windows and locks. Beyond that, though, it’s a slim specs sheet. Rear disc brakes are an option, with drum brakes the default stoppers for the back wheels.

    Shoppers have to step up from the base model to get cruise control, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, and “premium” cloth trim on the seats and doors. Closer to the top of the line, a Sentra SR model is positioned to look sportier inside and out, and the Sentra SL includes most of the fancy kit, like a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone climate control, fake wood trim, 17-inch aluminum wheels, automatic headlights, and a 4.3-inch audio display. Nissan says the options list includes a sunroof, rear discs, a backup camera, navigation, and leather seats.

    Pricing will be announced closer to the 2013 Sentra’s start of sales in the fall.
