Nissan Sentra

In the United States, the Sentra currently serves as Nissan's compact car and the prices range from $15,000 for a base model to $21,000 for a loaded top-of-the-line Sentra. While previous Sentras were subcompact cars, the Sentra has grown over the years, and now the Nissan Versa has replaced the Sentra in the entry-level area, although it is rated by the US EPA as a mid-size car due to its interior volume.

The Nissan Sentra was introduced for the 1982 model year as the US export name for the Nissan Sunny (Named after a famous Japanese mobster[citation needed]) . Many other countries in the Americas, such as Bolivia, Brazil and Chile sell their versions of the Sunny as the Sentra. In Mexico, the first three generations of the Sentra were known as the Tsuru (Japanese for Crane), and the 1994 model is still sold under that name, having gone through three facelifts, alongside the current Sentra.

The first generation of the Nissan Sentra was introduced in the United States in May 1982 as a direct replacement for the Datsun 210. Initially the model was imported from Japan, where it was produced at Zama plant. Available in four body styles (two-door sedan, four-door sedan, five-door wagon and three-door hatchback coupe), it was the second car to be marketed in the United States under the nameplate of Nissan and using a model name instead of a number. The first one was the Nissan Stanza, introduced in the 1981 New York Auto Show as a 1982 model. While previous Sunny models had used a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, the B11 Sentra was the first to use a front-engine, front-wheel drive layout. Engine choice was the 67 hp (E15) 1.5 L four-cylinder SOHC, replacing the old A-Series OHV. This featured semi-hemispherical combustion chambers, high-swirl intake ports and a semi-dual exhaust manifold to provide strong torque at low and medium rpm ranges. Torque peak was 85 fl-lbs at 3,200 rpm. Transmission options were a four-speed manual, 5-speed manual or a three-speed automatic with lock-up torque converter. Drag coefficient was 0.39 for the coupe and 0.40 for two- and four-door sedans.
