The second-oldest nameplate on the Nissan lineup, behind only the Nissan Maxima, the Sentra was first introduced in 1982. Back in the day, the Sentra got its star as a subcompact sedan, and was that way throughout its first four generations. It wasn’t until gen-five that the vehicle’s dimensions were boosted enough to move it up into the compact sedan segment, where it remains today. Now in its eighth generation, the 2021 Nissan Sentra continues to be an outstanding option within its segment here in the Virginia Beach VA area.
Not much needed to change for the 2021 model year, considering the Nissan Sentra just underwent a major redesign last year with the eighth-generation transition. Even still, Nissan decided to introduce a new two-tone exterior color option for you to choose if you’re interested in SR trim level. Only available on that grade, the color option combines a black roof with an otherwise Electric Blue Metallic exterior.
The SR trim level is the nameplate’s top of the line, preceded by the SV and its base trim level, the Sentra S. Regardless of trim level, the Sentra offers the most standard safety features in its class, which includes Nissan Safety Shield 360. This suite of driver-assistive safety technologies features Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and Rear Automatic Braking.
What’s even more exciting about the Sentra, is that these aren’t its only safety features. It also comes with a full 10 supplemental air bags, the Intelligent Driver Alertness technology and a feature called Rear Door Alert. And that’s only taking safety features into account, not the host of other great content found throughout the vehicle.
