Got a brochure for the 2013 Nissan Sentra in the mail recently. What a very nice-looking car! I have seen two or three of them on the road, and they do very much resemble a miniature Altima.
It seems as though Nissan did their homework with this car, but I notice that they went back to a 1.8L engine, down from the 2.0L used in the 2007 to 2012 Sentra. Is this the same 1.8 engine as used in the B15, or is it totally new?
My guess is that Nissan really wanted to aggressively pursue the 39 MPG highway rating for the new Sentra - so as to stay on par with the Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic.
Anyway, I really like the new Sentra - but really don't want a car payment right now. The old 2002 will have to keep on going until I hand it down to my son in about a year and a half.
