While the initial press release was saying 1.8 turbo nissan has put up a page on their own website and it states 1.6 turbo with over 200hp. So I'm pretty sure it's just the nismo juke engine.this looks like it could come out tomorrow. I see no crazy concept details. Looks like an mr18ddt might be in the future for nissan. I really think the Juke RS should have gone that route.
I didn't know this sentra was even in the works. Now lets get a Nismo Note with the 1.6t engine.
The nismo RS engine makes 215hp. Like I said it's probably using that engine. I'm just giving the latest info from nissan themselves. I think this has a better chance of coming into production then the nismo tiida did. Nissan already stated that they are expanding the nismo lineup for production. So far it's true as they have the GTR, JUKE, 370z and even a nismo Micra/ March. That 240hp rating on the sentra was at a press release from the car shows. Which I would take with more of a grain of salt then what nissan lists on their own website.Can't be the Juke engine, it doesn't produce over 200 as is currently. The new Juke Nismo-R will only produce 215ish, as stated on the press conference the Nismo Sentra will produce close to 240. That can and probably will change anyways. Either way I'm not really keeping my hopes up, just look at what happen to "Nismo Tiida". It looked just like the real thing plus aero and it never made it to production =(
1.6T with 200hp? This sounds good. I might have to look into that!
