Nissan brings the sport back to the 2017 Sentra with the new SR Turbo trim
The 2017 Sentra SR Turbo builds upon the SR trim level in a big way.
Gone is the standard motor, and in its place is a 1.6-liter, turbocharged I4.
Output is pegged at 188 horsepower, which is 64 more than the standard SR.
It can be had with the buyer's choice of continuously variable or six-speed manual transmissions.
The chassis has been updated to match the engine, as well.
Under-the-skin improvements include larger front brakes, stiffer front springs and optimized dampers.
The SR Turbo also adds a moonroof as standard equipment, as well as a center console that's double the size of before.
You can opt for a SR Turbo Premium Package, which adds leather seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a Bose sound system and blind spot monitoring.
There's no word yet on a release date or pricing.
For comparison's sake, a 2016 Sentra SR (without the new engine) was priced at $20,410.
