The 2021 Nissan Sentra is a compact four-door sedan that’s in the second model year of the nameplate’s eight generation. Redesigned for 2020, the Sentra presents a simplified lineup in both Canada and the United States.

Only one engine choice is offered in the Sentra at the moment, which is a 2.0L inline-four that develops 149 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. It’s matched to either a six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic, feeding power to the front wheels.

In the U.S., the 2021 Nissan Sentra is sold in S, SV and SR trim levels, the latter being sportier in appearance than the two others. Meanwhile, the Canadian-market Sentra offers S, SV, SV Moonroof, SR and SR Premium trims.

For the 2021 model year, the Nissan Sentra gets standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across all trim levels, and the SR can now be chosen with the Electric Blue Metallic paint and Black roof combination. In other news, Nissan Canada recently announced that the Micra Cup monotype racing series will be replaced with the new Sentra Cup for 2021.
