(2004 model shown)
Nissan's front-drive compact Sentra sedan is due to be redesigned later in 2006 model year. The current version continues in the meantime with minor interior updates, a newly available CD changer and new exterior colors Sapphire Blue and Sunburst. Power continues to come from 126-horsepower, 1.8-liter and 165-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines, mated to five-speed manual and four-speed automatic gearboxes. The sportier SE-R version and its 175-horsepower 2.5-liter in-line four also continue in the line, along with the hotter SE-R Spec V, which brings a 185-horsepower version of the same basic engine and a six-speed manual gearbox.
