Experts at TheCarConnection.com are pleasantly surprised at the features offered by the 2008 Nissan Sentra.
Edmunds reveals that the Nissan 2008 Sentra "comes in five trim levels: 2.0, 2.0 S, 2.0 SL, SE-R and SE-R Spec V." The S trim comes with "keyless entry, cruise control, power mirrors, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and a trip computer." The SL trim offers "leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless start, satellite radio, Bluetooth and an overhead CD storage container." In addition, Nissan offers "a sunroof, a Rockford Fosgate sound system, a spoiler and a trunk divider" as options for both the above models.
For the sportier enthusiast, the Nissan 2008 Sentra SE-R trim offers "firmer suspension tuning, larger brakes, a lower body kit, cloth-upholstered sport seats, aluminum-trimmed pedals, and oil pressure and G-force gauges," according to Edmunds. Finally, the Spec V trim has "an even firmer and lowered suspension, even larger front brakes and additional interior enhancements," with a "sunroof and Rockford Fosgate stereo...optional on both SE-R models."
Cars.com indicates "The Sentra has a substantial list of upgraded and new features for 2008," including a driver's power window that is "now also one-touch up, not just down"; additionally, "the assist grips over the doors now fold flat." Cars.com also points out that "all of the regular Sentra trim levels now have brightly illuminated instruments, day and night, as standard equipment" and "XM Satellite Radio is standard on 2.0 SL models."
Edmunds finishes by mentioning that "ABS, cruise control and a security system become standard fare on 2.0 S" and the "luggage capacity is a respectable 13.1 cubic feet." One feature exclusive to the Spec V trim of the Nissan 2008 Sentra is "red front seatbelts" to match the red seatbelts of the SE-R models.
The Nissan 2008 Sentra offers some high-tech features that exceed the usual equipment in the compact class.
