Nissan has made no secret of its plans to dramatically reshape its U.S.-market lineup, with its pronouncement that five new models are on the way in rapid succession over the next year or so. Now it’s the Nissan Sentra’s turn in the makeover chair, as evidenced by the first official teaser photo and video of the new 2013 Nissan Sentra in SR trim. Meanwhile, over in China at the 2012 Beijing auto show, Nissan is busy showing off its new Nissan Sylphy (at right), the Asian market version of the coming Sentra.
Following in the tire tracks of the recently revealed, all-new Pathfinder and Altima, the next-generation 2013 Nissan Sentra will be officially revealed later this summer in advance of its rollout to dealerships this fall.
So far, Nissan isn’t saying much of anything about the new 2013 Sentra, but the compact, front-drive sedan will no doubt come equipped with an application of its next-generation Xtronic CVT it has started rolling out to its new models such as the Altima. It remains to be seen if Nissan will continue to offer the available six-speed manual. The present Nissan Sentra is powered by 2.0 and 2.5-liter engines depending on trim level, with the 2.5-liter, 200 horsepower Sentra SE-R Spec V topping the lineup.
