In its second year since its redesign, the 2021 Nissan Sentra is adding standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a new two-tone paint job for the loaded SR model. Its price only rises $100 across all three trim levels, with a base price of $20,335, undercutting popular choices such as the Honda Civic and the Mazda 3.
That's for the base S model, which gets 16-inch steel wheels with covers, keyless entry, and now Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability are all standard. A step up is the mid-grade SV model, starting at $21,395, which has 16-inch aluminum wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, and adaptive cruise control. The top-of-the-line SR model gets the best looks with 18-inch wheels, a dark chrome grille, LED headlights, a rear spoiler, and sport cloth interior with orange stitching. It starts at $22,675.
Nissan's Safety Shield 360, which includes automated emergency braking, high-beam assist, lane-departure and blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear automated braking, is standard on all 2021 Sentras. They're powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque sent to the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
The 2021 Nissan Sentra is on sale now in the U.S. starting at $20,335 for the base S model and reaching $22,675 for the Sentra SR, which gets a new two-tone Electric Blue with a black roof exterior paint job.
