The 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 188 horsepower. The price is the same whether buyers choose a six-speed manual or CVT.

Nissan is outlining pricing for the 2017 Sentra lineup, including the recently announced SR Turbo. The new range-topping model goes on sale in October and costs $22,825 for both the six-speed manual and CVT.

The SR Turbo gets a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 188 horsepower (140 kilowatts) and 177 pound-feet (240 newton-meter) of torque. The engine is 50-percent more powerful than the Sentra’s naturally aspirated option. The new model should handle better too thanks to stiffer front springs and an Active Understeer Control system. Larger front brake discs can handle slowing the more potent sedan, too.

The Sentra doesn’t have the bold styling of competitors like the latest Honda Civic, and Nissan’s designers don’t give the SR Turbo much to close the gap. The model has the same sporty look as the naturally aspirated SR trim, including larger side sills and a trunk lip spoiler. The turbocharged Sentra gets a different design for the 17-inch wheels, though.

For $2,590, customers can add the SR Turbo Premium Package. Checking this option box gets buyers safety tech, like rear cross traffic alert and blind sport warning. There’s also a much nicer interior thanks to the addition of leather seats, an eight-speaker stereo, and an auto-dimming mirror. A 5.8-inch infotainment system with navigation is among the package’s helpful improvements, too.

The rest of the models in the Sentra range are available at dealers now. They still use a 1.8-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder with 124 hp (92.47 kW). Changes are light for the new model year. For example there’s less cabin noise thanks to thicker glass and more storage in the center console.

Prices start at $17,825 for the base S trim with a six-speed manual, which is $210 more than last year. The same version with the CVT costs buyers $18,825 – $230 more than the 2016 model. The SV model costs $19,625; the naturally aspirated SR goes for $20,825, and the SL is $22,335.
