A 1.8? What happened to 2.0? How much more HP does it make? What kind of MPG are we talking? I like the rear. It looks like a maxima. I likey! Im glad to see they went with push button start, but no cluster needle sweep? Thats not cool!

I'm not sure how much, maybe 130-140hp is my estimation. What I'd like Nissan to do is get rid of the analog fuel gauge for a digital one, the B16 is a digital bar so this would be a step backwards. Otherwise, they're downgrading to 1.8, unless its for increased fuel consumption that wouldn't make sense.

I dunno, it goes both ways about the gas gauge with me. I personally like the needle, but after having the digital, it looks cleaner.

Yeah same here. I like it....... But I think my 2011 Sentra SR looks sportier, and more aggresive. This just looks classy, and corolla like. Its like Nissan has went soft and fluffy, then hard and mean. Ive always known Nissan to be all about performace. But it seems latly they are trying to keep up with Toyota, then be different, just my 2 cents. As an example, Nissan always used a bigger engine, for cars in the same class. Most sentra classes are 1.8, well Nissan was 2.0. Most Versa classes were 1.6, Nissan was 1.8. Most sedan classes were 2.4, Nissan was 2.5. Now a days, everyone sportn the 2.0, 1.8, 2.5. Seems latly Nissan is stepping down to make better MPG, and instead I think they just need to keep the engines, but tweak them better for MPG. Or just do Like the kia rio, 1.6, 138hp and still gets between 30-40. Why does the Versa have 1.6 109hp and get 30-38 MPG? Yes I know the Versa is bigger, and maybe thats why its 2mpg less, but if it had 138hp to move that body better, maybe it would be better MPG? Once again my two cents. Basically, I dunno if im happy with where Nissan is going. I like my fun to drive, sporty like cars, and im just affraid Nissan is tossing in the towl for those types of cars......

I've noticed that too, but as for the Versa I've always chalked it up to how it's the heaviest of it's class (maybe Nissan should look into that somehow without sacrificing too much quality)

It also seems like Nissan is toning down everything else for MPG or otherwise and attempting to make people go for the Altima 3.5's and 370z's, which I'm not a fan of as that makes a huge gap in performance for their vehicles.

Subaru and Mazda did the same thing with the Mazda 3 and the Imprezza in the compact class. They both used to be 2.5 170hp, but were reduced to 2.0 around 150hp to have better MPGs.

I mean, if we are gonna reduce engine size, then lets start using DIG technology. So that way we still get great mpg, and hp when we need it/want it!

I do wish we had more engine options in cars.. It seems these days a lot of cars only have 1. I dont understand why the versa even had 2 engine choices.. they are so similar in horsepower and displacement that it made no sense..

I wish the MR20 would've been an option instead of the MR18. Then at least there would be a difference between the 2. 13 hp and a couple mpg's difference between the2 engine choices we got is a joke IMO. Plus the MR20 gets almost the same mpg's as the MR18.

Why you no do this Nissan?!

Im happy with my 1.8, but I will always yearn for an engine swap to the 2.0

it hasn't been confirmed what engine will be in the new sentra yet...its only been rumored that it will return to a 1.8 but not confirmed...this body style has already been put in production and already been ready to sell over seas. nissan did confirm that it will be a smaller version of the new altima..they however have yet to mention if a SER or Spec v will be made..one thing is for sure that a Nismo version will be made...it could very well take over the SER Spec-v name...i also read that Nismo parts will indeed be made for almost all of the new nissan line up.

You are so wrong so many ways. Nissan sold more cars in the Asian market than Toyota. Nissan is getting aggressive, and to compare Nissan with Kia is embarassing. I like the direction Nissan is going. I hate your Sentra. Versa has been stealing Sentra customers since it came out. The 1.8 is a good engine. Refined. Lucky Versa has the 1.8. Someday it will be gone. I think turbos are good but they run hot unless they are diesel. Nissan needs to implement turbodiesels more in the NA market. The new Sentra is more refined than your car. Stop gloating.:blue flower:

Nobodys gloating. I expressed my opinion. If the Sentra is gone in the future.....well great, its gone, I dont care. As far as the Versa, I never said it was a bad car, matter of the fact, I still recommend the Versa to many people. I was making a comparison between engines, not cars! Unfortunately for the versa, I wanted something bigger as far as the drivers side, and my sentra does get better MPG than my 1.8 versa did. I respect the fact you may not like my posts, but once again it was my two cents. That post was not about 100% true facts, for you to go a-wall. For family people the Versa is a great choice. For people like me who dont have a wife and kids right now, the Sentra fits very well. Its whatever your needs are. Ive had it for a year now. Once again your opinion about the new Sentra being better then mine. I never said it was better then the new one, I believe as far as engines are concered, ill keep my MR20 powerd sentra. Nobody was bashing the Versa for anything. I personally have brought the Versa and Sentra back for multiple issues, so (in my opinion again) they are about the same as far as reliability. Alot of people on these forums will tell you the problems they have had on the 1.8 motor, in such little mileage, some were good, some were bad. Im sure cause I hate the Versa so much, im still on here trying to help people if I can, and then I started the Versa buddys on facebook, which then made sense to change it to Nissan Versa Fourms with the help of Henry. So before you come after me, make sure you know for a fact im after the Versa, Sentra or Nissan. Honestly ive been looking at Rogues latly, so I really cant be a die hard Sentra fan, if im looking around. But im sure this is just a power struggle for you, but im just gonna leave you with this post, so you can rethink about what you said. Oh, and P.S. I hate you Versa too, are we even now? Grow up........ :blue flower:

Cool, thats awesome to know about the Nismo parts! I wonder which 1.8 motor will be used if they go back to it, or will they make a new one?

It looks very much like a big brother to my 2012 Versa sedan. Same grill. Similar lights. Similar sweeping lines. Personally I like the shape of things to come. However what works for someone may not work for someone else.
