2024 Nissan Sentra Updated With New Style, More Efficiency
The Nissan Sentra gets a new look for 2024.
Automakers are abandoning small sedans en masse, but Nissan Sentra has remained on the market despite the sedanocopypse. For 2024, Nissan has refreshed the Sentra bringing new improvements in style and efficiency. Could this be what the Sentra needs to boost its slipping sales numbers?
Regarding the exterior, the 2024 Nissan Sentra refresh gets a new look in a similar fashion to the recently updated Altima. The front grille’s V-shaped chrome applique has been removed. Instead, two chrome slats sit on either side of the front grille. The headlights are updated, too. New 16-inch and 18-inch wheel designs round out the Sentra’s updated appearance. The sporty SR trim gains new red SR badges on the grille. The interior stays mostly the same, save for new black interior bezels, and recolored SR orange stitching elements that better match the orange used on other Nissan products.
The exterior updates may be mild, but Nissan promises a more thoroughly revised engine and transmission this time around. The Sentra gains idle stop/start, to save fuel when stopped and idling. Nissan says the CVT transmission has been revised both for improved economy, and smoothness. In Canada, the six-speed manual remains available on the S and SR trims. U.S. market Sentras come standard with the CVT automatic.
Nissan hasn’t released updated economy numbers for the 2024 Sentra, even though it has claimed improvements in efficiency. At 33 MPG combined for the 2023 model, the Sentra merely matches the faster and more powerful Honda Civic Hatchback. Perhaps the new style could be what the Sentra needs to put it back at the top of the list.
