Sentra SV features

The SV trim has a surprising amount of equipment without being too much of a hit to your bank account. The big one is the Xtronic CVT. This continuously variable transmission actually improves the gas mileage significantly. That could save you big bucks down the road. You also get active understeer control, NissanConnect with mobile apps, hands-free texting, Siri eyes-free, rearview monitor, the 5-inch drive-assist display for the driver, intelligent key with push-button start, premium cloth seat trim, leather-wrapped steering wheel, satellite radio, more speakers and too much other stuff to list. That’s a huge value and well worth it!

Sentra SR features

The SR is actually our most popular Sentra trim because it’s the sportiest one of the bunch. People just gotta have that rear spoiler. There’s so much more though: upgraded disc brakes, 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, fog lights, sport rear fascia, LED turn signals on the mirrors, premium sport cloth seat trim and heated seats. That’s in addition to all of the SV trim equipment. And the SR just looks faster, even when it’s standing still.
