2012 Nissan Sentra Features

Features

The 2012 Sentra is a decent high-value commuter car, at around $17k for the base 2.0-liter Sentra. On those models, standard equipment includes power windows and locks, air conditioning, tilt steering, split-folding backseats, and a 160-watt  sound system all stanard.

Sentra 2.0 S or 2.0 SR trims get you a few more extras like a center console, keyless entry, and a trip computer, while the high-end 2.0 SL adds leather and Bluetooth; but the issue with both of these models is that they cost a lot more and only come with the CVT. And the 2012 Sentra 2.0 S can now be optioned with a navigation system that includes five-inch touch screen and USB/iPod connectivity. A special-edition package on the SR also loads it with popular options.

Whether considering one of the most affordable models or a loaded SE-R Spec V, the 2012 Sentra is a relatively good value.

At the top of the range, the SE-R gets a sport-tuned suspension, big 17-inch alloy wheels, special badging, sport seats, and a number of other extras. The Spec V takes the performance package another step, with extra bracing, upgraded brakes, summer performance tires, driving lamps, and exclusive lower bodywork.

A Rockford Fosgate audio system is among the top options, as is a navigation system with five-inch screen, SD card reader, and XM Satellite Radio. Intelligent Key keyless entry and start is among other extras, and full leather seating is available on the SE-R models. The audio system offered on both top models includes USB connectivity and a full color screen.
