2007 nissan sentra

Anyone been near one of these in person? I would love to own one of these compared to a civic or something.

Re: 2007 nissan sentra

yeah i work at the dealership, just another ugly new car to me, i'd rather see that 510 in those pics a few posts down. a 4 door, a 2 door, and a 2 door SSS version. probably won't ever see it. sentra does have a 2.0 in it. just a bigger version of the 1.8 in the versa though.

Re: 2007 nissan sentra

I'd rather have a civic by a l-a-n-d-s-l-i-d-e. Besides the obvious, the new sentra commercials are so stupid I have to change the channel when they come on.

The sentra is a good car, I drove an SER one summer, amazing tq. But overall, a 200hp civic is hard to beat in the eco class.

Re: 2007 nissan sentra

I've never really been a sentra fan. I'd take the civic over the sentra. The sentra just isn't that appealing...

Re: 2007 nissan sentra

The new civics look ten times better to me than the new sentra. I'd take the new civic. Specs are about the same. The new sentra has 135hp and 140 torque vs. the civic that has 140hp and 128 torque. Looking at both cars overall I would say the civic is much nicer and if you can step up to the Si it's even better.

Re: 2007 nissan sentra

No the SE-R and SE-R spec V are different than the regular sentra. They are fast but I wouldn't say fast as crap. The new civic Si will take them as would the SRT-4, cobalt SS, and saturn ion redline. All of these cars are in the same price range which makes the sentra SE-R not very impressive. Also the original poster was asking about the new 2007 sentra so comparing the SE-R is pointless. The new SE-R I've heard is schedual for a late 2007 release and from the spy shots I've seen it doen't really look any better than the regular 2007 sentra. The question is will Nissan make it so that it competes with the competition or not. Considering they only raised the hp/torque by 10 for the regular sentra I hope they plan to raise the SE-R specs by more than 10. Not to mention the new caliber SRT-4 is coming out with 300hp and will still be right around 20k. Nissan better step it up because with the current sentra looks the only thing that will win people over is performance.

Re: 2007 nissan sentra

those cars may take an SE-R in a drag, but put them on a track and the SE-R would smoke them. you should read soem of the reviews that the magazines did when they took the sentra to the autoX and road courses.

Re: 2007 nissan sentra

I'm not warming up to the Sentra at all. I liked last year's model with the SR-V options. Very cool.
