One of Nissans best selling vehicles in the US, the current Sentra will be offered along a special version, dedicated to those who like fast sedans. The all new 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo is now available in the US.

Based on the popular Sentra SR grade level, which accounts for more than 15 percent total Sentra sales, the new SR Turbo maintains the SR's sporty exterior, interior and wheel treatments.

At the heart though, the 2017 SR Turbo has a new 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) 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% more) than the non-turbo 2017 Sentra SR grade's 1.8-liter powerplant. The Sentra SR Turbo is available with a 6-speed manual transmission, with tuned gear ratios.

To help handle the increased power and torque, significant changes were made to the suspension. The enhancements to the independent strut front/rear torsion beam suspension include a 10 percent increase in front spring stiffness. The SR Turbo-specific front and rear dampers have been optimized for use with the 17-inch wheels and tires. Also front damping has been increased 23 percent and rear damping by 50 percent.

Larger front brakes and calipers are utilized in the SR Turbo's 4-wheel disc brake system – 11.7-inch vent front (versus the 11.0-inch front discs of the standard Sentra) and 11.5-inch solid rear discs. In addition, the Active Understeer Control system has been optimized for the SR Turbo.

The new SR Turbo includes a standard power sliding glass moonroof with tilt feature and SR Turbo badging.

The SR Turbo is offered in seven exterior colors: Red Alert, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Super Black, Aspen White (premium color) and Deep Blue Pearl.
