Changes to the 2014 Sentra include a reduction of engine noise in the cabin thanks to improved body insulation and sealing, along with a change in the engine layout; more responsive steering through the use of a quick steering ratio and the return of the Electric Power Steering (EPS) system; retuned springs, shocks and thicker swaybars aid in the vehicle’s handling and reduction of body roll; improved ride comfort with improved body motion control courtesy of shock absorber damping force tuning and acceleration has been enhanced through retuning of the Xtronic CVT.

Inside, the 2014 Sentra also benefits from improved seat comfort with the automaker incorporating new seat frame spring tuning and revised foam density and shaping. The sliding armrest is now standard on the SL model while it has also been added to the SV Driver Package and SR Driver Package.

The 2014 Nissan Sentra is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 130 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. It gets an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway.
