Nissan has unveiled some of its new 2017-year model cars and crossovers at the Miami Auto Show and one of them is interesting. Nissan has unveiled a new turbo version of the Sentra SR called the Sentra SR Turbo. The standard Sentra SR carries over and the new turbo version gets a different engine under the hood.
That engine is a 1.6L DIG turbo engine promising a 50% increase in power compared to the standard Sentra SR. The Nissan Juke uses a 1.6L DIG turbo engine, I wonder if this is the same engine in the Sentra SR turbo. The SR Turbo can be had with a 6-speed manual or an Xtronic transmission with manual mode.
The 1.6L DIG turbo engine makes 188hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. That is 64hp more and 52 lb-ft more torque than the normal Sentra. The turbo car also gets an enhanced body structure, revised steering system, larger front disc brakes, and unique suspension tuning. A sliding glass moonroof is standard and the only option is the transmission and the turbo premium package including leather, Bose audio, blind spot warning, and rear cross traffic alert. Pricing and availability are unannounced.
