Nissan Sentra Nismo

Nissan Sentra Nismo

Nissan has unveiled the 2017 Nissan Sentra under the name of its performance division, Nismo. The Sentra joins the likes of the legendary Nismo vehicles such the GT-R, 370Z and Juke. The aggressive-looking body and styling updates with engineering mastery by Nissan is sure to make this model a better competitor among the line-up of Subaru WRX, Volkswagen GTI and Ford Focus ST.


Under the hood, lies a 1.6 l turbocharged engine, inline four cylinder engine producing 188 ponies at 5600 rpm, 58 hp more than the standard Sentra. The company calls the 1.6L engine a track-inspired performance variant. The turbocharger comes with an intercooler to boost the performance of the engine. The Sentra Nismo features a front-wheel drive similar to the 2016 standard Sentra. Nissan has equipped the Sentra with a Nismo-tuned manual six-speed transmission. In addition to the manual variant, a performance tuned Xtronic CVT is available. The curb weight and weight distribution of the 2017 model are 1378 kg and 61:39 for the manual transmission and 1408 kg and 62:38 for the CVT version respectively. 1:16 is (horsepower: pounds) the power: weight ratio of the manual transmission.


The chassis has Nismo-specific enhancements which include re-tuned independent suspensions. Torsion beam suspension and mono-tube dampers make sure the ride and handling is in-line with the standards of a track car. The high-pressure gas damper provides better response to changes. The tuned chassis enhances body control.


The body work includes trademark of Nismo-branded vehicles such as lower stance, blackened grille and red stripes all around. One important aerodynamic upgrade is the Nismo’s signature "layered double wing". The bodywork upgrades and aero treatments reduce rear lift by 30 percentage and the coefficient of drag is 0.29.It sports an 18” aluminum alloy wheels fitted with Brembo brakes and all-season tires.


The Interior designs of the Sentra Nismo are unique and track-inspired. It has a 370Z inspired steering wheel which features an electric-assist system. Red accents which are signature styles of the Nismo are found throughout the interiors. Leather stripes and Carbon fibre looks give more of an aesthetic appearance to the Sentra Nismo. The seats are heavily bolstered and sporty. The Alcantara leather can be found in interior trims and steering wheel grip cover. The instrument cluster features tachometer output with NISMO red labelling.

      Faulty water temp dial: R33 GTR Nismo clocks
      SO my car has nismo white faced clocks and the water temp dial is irratic, it reads very high although the actual running temp is well within the safe range.....
      Does anybody have any idea if the white dial face can be separated from the temp gauge and fitted to another one that has a black face?  I think the fuel level and water temp share the same dial face and due to ocd, 2 black dials would drive me mad.
