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.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan today announced U.S. pricing for the 2017 Nissan Sentra and new Sentra SR Turbo. Normally aspirated Sentra models are on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide, while the new SR Turbo becomes available in October.
The Nissan Sentra, the company's third best-selling vehicle behind Altima and Rogue, has been a mainstay in the compact sedan segment for 35 years and seven generations. Following a consistent stream of product enhancements year after year – along with steadily increasing sales – Sentra kicks things up a few notches with the addition of the new SR Turbo.
Based on the popular Sentra SR grade, which accounts for more than 15 percent total Sentra sales, the new SR Turbo maintains the SR's unique sporty exterior, interior and wheel treatments, but with 50 percent more horsepower.
All 2017 Sentra grades include improved interior quietness due to increased front and rear window glass thickness and nearly double the storage capacity in the front center console.
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices* (MSRP) for the 2017 Nissan Sentra:
Sentra SR Turbo
Sentra SR Turbo
Destination and Handling $835.
At the heart of the 2017 SR Turbo is its new 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGÔ) turbocharged engine rated at 188 horsepower at 5,600 RPM and 177 lb-ft of torque at 1,600 - 5,200 RPM – 64 more horsepower and 52 more lb-ft of torque (41 percent more) than the non-turbo 2017 Sentra SR grade's 1.8-liter powerplant.
As expected of a vehicle with an engine like the 1.6-liter turbo, the Sentra SR Turbo is available with a 6-speed manual transmission, with gear ratios selected to take maximum advantage of the engine's powerband and torque curve. The SR Turbo is also offered with an advanced Xtronic transmission with manual mode, a version unique to the SR Turbo to match the new engine's performance. To help handle the increased power and torque, significant changes were made to the suspension, steering and brakes to give the new SR Turbo a great driving feel.
A number of Nissan's advanced Safety Shield Technologies and convenience features are available on the 2017 Sentra, including Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). Also available are Siri Eyes Free™ voice recognition, Bose® Premium audio system with eight speakers, and NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps.
