[VIDEO] Meet the 2013 Nissan Sentra image

The 2013 Nissan Sentra has been unveiled ahead of its launch this autumn, and, judging by the images and video, it’s inspiration had been drawn from the 2013 Altima model.

The 2013 Nissan Sentra, which is basically a renamed Nissan Sylphy, is now getting softer curves, LED infused headlights, a prominent front grille, a rear spoiler, extended side skirts, modified front and rear bumpers and some other tweaks to its exterior design. The cabin of the 2013 Nissan Sentra hasn’t been left aside by the company’s designers either and this has now been improved with higher quality materials.

Nissan says that the 2013 Sentra’s cabin is getting a Bose audio system, faux Maple wood trim or leather upholstery on the higher trim levels, along with features like the GPS navigation system, the Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, the NissanConnectSM infotainment system and more, which will be announced close to the model’s launch.

The Nissan Sentra for the 2013 model year has increased in size by 2.3 inches to a total length of 182.1 inches, and the wheelbase is now 0.6 inches longer to 106.3 inches. The model is offering “class-leading” legroom for the rear-seat passengers, as the automaker is saying, and also a cargo room in the boot which can hold up to 15.1 cubic feet or 427.6 liters. The model is powered by a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine, generating 130 HP and 128 lb-ft of torque (173 Nm), mated to either a six-speed manual or an Xtronic CVT. Fuel economy stands at 30/39 mpg.
