At this year’s Detroit Auto Show, Nissan showed its next generation Nissan Sentra sedan, which will be released later this year as a 2007 model. However, one car that didn't make an appearance was the sporty Sentra SE-R. These spy photos now capture an SE-R prototype as it undergoes hot weather testing in the US southwest.

The new Sentra’s styling is far more modern than the rounded shape of the current Sentra. Crisp angles, fender flares, and a broad arching roofline give the new Sentra an entirely new look. The new SE-R is differentiated from the standard Sentra by a bolder front airdam, bigger wheels and performance tires, and a rear deck spoiler lip at the top of the trunk lid. The SE-R also gets more power and beefier brakes than standard Sentras. It is anticipated that the new SE-R will be introduced in early 2007.
