- Which should you buy, 2013 or 2014? The 2013; we don't expect pricing to change much and most of the new features are on the most-expensive trim level or optional equipment.
Nissan redesigned its compact sedan for 2013 with a more fuel-efficient powertrain and a new look, inside and out. The Sentra also got lighter and longer for 2013; for 2014, the updates are minor.
The 2014 Sentra uses the same 130-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic or six-speed manual transmissions. Also carrying over are S, SV, SV, SR and SL trim levels, as well as the fuel-efficiency-oriented FE+ Package on the S and SV trims. Nissan says the 2014 Sentra received revised CVT, steering and suspension tuning.
