If you’re in the market for a compact sedan and wanted something with a little more get up and go than usual, you might be in luck. The new 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo has just been released and is available to order from Collins Nissan.

The 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo updates the standard Sentra and breathes new life into the model. Taking the 1.6-litre turbo engine from the Juke and shoehorning it into the Sentra was inspired. It not only injects some of the Juke’s fun into the car, it also gives the Sentra a lot of spritely energy.

The design carries over from the Sentra SR, which is a good thing. That means the Turbo is a bit sporty but not overly so. It has all the elements we expect but without the big body kits or brash chrome detailing or carbon fibre additions that can spoil the look if not done carefully. To look at, the 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo looks pretty much the same as the non turbo model except for a small badge on the trunk lid.

The cabin is the same. The same intent as the exterior, which keeps it the same as the standard Sentra SR. Again, this is to the car’s benefit as the cabin is a winner already so why mess with it? It is of a good size, comfortable, well put together and has enough technology to keep most buyers happy.

All about the engine
So the main differentiator between the SR and SR Turbo is the engine. That turbocharged 1.6-liter inline four taken from the Juke. It revs freely and in Sport mode is very responsive. Generating 188 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, this front wheel drive car has enough power to be fun without burning your way through tyres every couple of months.

It uses a 6 speed manual transmission or Nissan’s XTronic CVT. Both climb through the gears smoothly and offer a comfortable ride. Suspension has been stiffened to help with the ride and to keep what is a fairly narrow chassis on track. It is also comfortable. Nissan has again tweaked a comfortable sedan to be more sporty without compromising comfort. It works very well indeed.

With the build quality you expect from Nissan and a turbocharged engine, the 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo is an excellent addition to the stable. Visit Collins Nissan, 155 Scott Street, St. Catharines, Ontario, L2N 1H3, to learn more.
