Nissan Sentra Will Be Offered with New Engines in the US

Nissan USA has recently confirmed that the new Sentra will be offered with new engines in the United States, along with a new hatchback version.

Michael Bunce, director-product for Nissan North America has recently stated in an interview for WardsAuto, that “from a production standpoint, in the future you`ll see more engine offerings, and it`s full steam ahead”.

The new array of engines, unfortunately not known at the moment, will join the current 1.8-liter naturally aspirated flat-four engine, with 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.

Along with the new engines, Nissan is also planning to revive the C segment hatchback in the United States, by launching the new-generation version, completely new in terms of styling.

In the US, the C segment hatchback is currently dominated by Ford Focus and Mazda3, and the new arrival of its own fresh C version will add up a greater value to the market.

Nissan first revealed its plans for the new-gen Nissan Sentra hatchback at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, stating that the model will receive updated cabin, modified suspension with sporty springs and dampers and as aforementioned, a completely new look. The second Japanese carmaker might be also asking a starting price of $16,780.
