1992 Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra is a car produced by Nissan since 1982. Originally subcompact in classification, for model year 2000 it was reclassified as a compact car, becoming mid-size for 2007. Until 2006, Sentra was a rebadged export version of the Japanese Nissan Sunny, but since the 2013 model year, Sentra is a rebadged export version of the Nissan Sylphy. The Sentra nameplate is not used in Japan. Many other countries in South America sell their versions of the Sunny as the Sentra. In Mexico, the first three generations of the Sentra were known as the Nissan Tsuru (Japanese for crane), and the B13 model is still sold under that name, alongside the updated models badged as Sentra.

Yearly Updates 1992 Sentra Among the minor changes for 1992 is the addition of a passenger-side vanity mirror and black bodyside moldings on 2-door models. 1993 Sentra Two major changes are made to the 1993 Sentras. One is a standard driver-side airbag for the deluxe GXE 4-door. (The safety feature is an available option for the remainder of the Sentra line.) The other is the elimination of low-level gearboxes for the E models. They’re now provided with the same 5-speed manual and 4-speed overdrive automatic as the other Sentra models. All ’93s also sport modest revisions to the grille, front fascia, headlamps, and taillamps. 1994 Sentra Only standard equipment changed for 1994. 1994.5 Sentra While awaiting a redesigned Sentra subcompact, Nissan continued to sell unchanged Sentras as “1994.5” models.

The Sentra finally crossed over into the “compact” class when the redesigned model launched in February 2000 as a 2000 model. When new, this redesign was considered a substantial upgrade, compared to the “cheap” economy car it replaced. Previously, the compact class had been occupied by the Altima, which moved to the mid-size class in 2001, and its wheelbase remained unchanged from the previous generation. Also to be noted is that while earlier Sentras were very similar to their Japan-market B-series Nissan Sunny twins, the B15 Sentra diverged greatly from the B15 Sunny (Nissan Super Sunny). Production shifted from Smyrna, Tennessee to Aguascalientes, Mexico, and the Smyrna production line was retooled to build the Nissan Xterra. The 2000–2001 Sentra SE with the SR20DE Roller rocker motor, which has 145 hp (108 kW) and 136 lb·ft (184 N·m) of torque, occupied the top of the line Sentra until the SE-R returned for model year 2002. The 1.6 L GA16DE engine was dropped in favor of the 1.8 L QG18DE(1809 or 1769cc), rated at 126 hp (94 kW) and 129 pound-feet (175 N·m). In Brazil, this engine generated 113 hp (84 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 114 lb·ft (155 N·m) at 4,400 rpm. Numerous upgrades were made over the previous generation. The new model featured a new interior with higher quality plastics and more comfortable seats. The exterior was also substantially updated and now featured body-side moldings and clear headlights. The curb weight on the QG18DE-engined Sentra is 2,513 lb (1,140 kg). With the introduction of the B15 in year 2000, Nissan also introduced a CA ‘Clean Air’ trim only available in California. The CA trim boasts a double walled exhaust, 3 catalytic converters, quick catalyst warm up, and a radiator that has a special coating which actually changes ground level ozone (smog) into oxygen. The Sentra CA model is the only gasoline-fueled vehicle in the world to receive California Air Resources Board (CARB) super ultra low emission vehicle (SULEV) certification and obtain zero-emission credits.

Nissan introduced the sixth generation Sentra at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in January. Classified as a mid-size sedan by the EPA thanks to its interior passenger and cargo volume of 110 cubic feet (as the EPA considers “mid” or “intermediate” size a car with interior passenger and cargo volume between 110 and 119 cubic feet), the Sentra is bigger in every dimension than the B15 model, being 65 mm (2.3 in.) longer, 91 mm (3.2 in.) wider, and 113 mm (4.0 in.) taller. The wheelbase is also 167 mm (5.9 in.) longer than the previous model. The sixth generation also marked a change in Nissan’s North American lineup, with the Nissan Versa becoming brand’s entry-level model. This generation is based on the C platform architecture that also underpins the first-generation Nissan Rogue, Nissan Qashqai and also the T31 Nissan X-Trail, as well as other Renault models. The Sentra’s standard engine is a 2.0-liter 16-valve 4-cylinder rated at 140 hp (104 kW) and 147 pound-feet (199 N·m) of torque. Fuel economy for with the 2.0L mated to the CVT is rated at 26 city/34 hwy, and the 6-speed manual at 24 city/31 hwy. SE-R is rated at 24 city/30 hwy with the CVT being the only transmission available. SE-R Spec-V is rated at 21 city/28 hwy mated with the 6-speed manual.

Sadly, the B13 Sentra SE-R was essentially a one-off for Nissan. The following Sentra performance trims never lived up to the B13’s legacy. Nissan didn’t even offer an SE-R trim for the B14 Sentra, and although the B14 SE trim had the SR20DE engine, the company switched out the independent rear suspension for a torsion beam, lost the viscous LSD, and reduced the size of the rear sway bar and rear disc brakes. By the time the SE-R name returned in the B15 Sentra in 2000, the car was a far cry from the special combination of ingredients that made the B13 SE-R such a standout during a Golden Age of sport compacts.

In North America, the Sentra currently serves as Nissan’s compact car, despite being rated as mid-size due to its interior volume since the 2007 model year. While previous Sentras were subcompacts, the Sentra has grown over the years, with the Nissan Versa having replaced the Sentra in the entry-level area, and the Sentra is now rated as a mid-size car due to its interior volume.

All Sentra models with the exception of the 2-door SE-R are equipped with a new dual-cam, 16-valve version of the previous Sentra’s 1.6-liter 4-cylinder, which benefits further from sequential multipoint fuel injection. With 20 more horsepower now on tap, the powertrain for most Sentras provide 100 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 108 pound-feet of torque at 4000 rpm. The lone exception is the delightful little 2-door SE-R, which Nissan was nice enough to equip with the Infiniti G20’s spunky 2.0-liter engine. When slotted under the Sentra coupe’s hood it provides 140 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 132 pound-feet of torque at 4800 rpm. At introduction, E models came with a 4-speed manual transmission standard and an optional 3-speed automatic. Meanwhile, the other trim levels offered either a standard 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed automatic gearbox. By 1993, the E models joined the rest of the Sentra line in offering the 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic.
