2021 Nissan Sentra Starts At $19,198 – SR Grade Gets A Manual Transmission


  • Price increased by $400 over the 2020 model year.

  • Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and NissanConnect now standard on all trims

  • Previously, SR was only offered with a CVT.


It had been a while since the compact Nissan Sentra had left a concrete visual impact on the compact car segment. For the 2020 model year, Nissan left no stone unturned and delivered its most compelling Sentra ever. For 2021, it now has more standard equipment and the manual SR is back.

Well, we say the manual SR “is back” but, to be frank, it’s no SE-R from the Sentra’s past. Even so, reinstating the manual transmission into a trim or model for that matter can be risky for a carmaker. Nissan has taken the risk and, along with the base $19,198 Sentra S, the $22,898 SR will both be offered with a 6-speed manual transmission. By the way, this is for Canada only.

The 2021 Sentra will now also feature Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and NissanConnect, heated front seats, and heated outside mirrors as standard for all trims. The SR will also be privy to a new two-tone paint combination – Electric Blue Metallic with Black roof for the SR grade.

All trims equipped with CVT transmission see their full names now include Xtronic to further differentiate them. As such, we now have the $20,798 S Xtronic, the $22,198 SV Xtronic (moonroof adds $800), the $24,198 SR Xtronic and the top-line $26,198 SR Premium Xtronic.
