Nissan announces 2017 Sentra SR Turbo prices for the U.S. image

The 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo can be had for at least $22,825 in the United States, where it uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder packing 188 horsepower.

The Japanese automaker has decided to reveal the pricing details for the Sentra model range for the 2017 model year, and most interestingly we now know how much the new SR Turbo costs. This new flagship version will reach dealerships in October and costs $22,825 regardless of gearbox change – either a six-speed manual or a CVT. The SR Turbo has under the hood a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 188 horsepower (140 kilowatts) and 177 pound-feet (240 newton-meter) of torque – which is 50 percent more oomph than the naturally-aspirated choice. The added power is kept in check by the revised front springs and an Active Understeer Control system, as well as the bigger brake discs.

The Sentra doesn’t have the same space age look as the Honda Civic for example, but at least gives a sporty appearance to the SR line – whether natural or turbo – such as bigger side sills and a trunk lip spoiler. The only difference is the turbo packs a bespoke design for the 17-inch wheels. Then there’s also the SR Turbo Premium Package for $2,590, which adds safety tech, like rear cross traffic alert and blind sport warning. But there are also other amenities: leather seats, an eight-speaker stereo, and an auto-dimming mirror as well as a 5.8-inch infotainment system with navigation.
