The Nissan Sentra was extensively redesigned last year, and for 2021 the model receives just minor tweaks, for which it's subject to just minor price increases.
The base Sentra S sees its price rise by $320, to $20,335 (with the $925 destination charge). Consider the extra scratch the cost of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which have been added to the standard-equipment list this year. (They previously were unavailable on the base car.)
The Sentra SV now stickers for $21,395, an increase of $200. The SV has no additional equipment for 2021, so chalk that one up to inflation. The top-spec Sentra SR will set you back $22,675, again $320 more than you would have paid last year. New for the 2021 SR is an available Wi-Fi hotspot, Nissan Connected Services, and a snappy two-tone paint scheme of Electric Blue Metallic with a Super Black roof.
The 2021 Sentra base price still undercuts that of its main rivals. The 2021 Toyota Corolla base price is $20,920, the 2021 Hyundai Elantra is $20,645, and the 2021 Honda Civic starts at $22,005.
As before, all Sentra trims include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, high beam assist and rear automatic braking. Under the hood is a 149-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder lashed to a CVT. Upon driving the redesigned Sentra last year, our reviewer was duly impressed, saying, "Nissan can still build an appealing small car when it wants to."
