2013 Nissan Sentra SE-R Nismo
Will the Sentra have a sinister Nismo sibling, we think so
Nissan is about to introduce a redesign of one of the bread and butter cars for the company. The 2013 Nissan Sentra is to be a versatile vehicle that offers everything from inexpensive means of transportation to spirited drivers car. In this article we look at the performance based rice rocket and determine if Nissan will deliver the goods.
2013 Nissan Sentra SE-R Nismo Specs
Since Renault owns a 43.4% stake in Nissan and Nissan owns a 15% or Renault means that the two companies are close, like Siamese-Frenchy twins. So therefore they share a lot of the same platforms and what have you. So we might get to see the Renaultsport engines making their way into the 2013 Sentra SE-R. There are two that is the turbo and direct injected 2.0L that both companies have access to. This engine easily produces 265hp like nothing is there so it would certainly make for a tuner friendly vehicle plus you probably could get 300hp easily if Nissan decides not to do it themselves. We would see around a 6 sec 0-60 time that would be on par with the redesigned 240hp VW Golf GTi coming out.

Nissan needs to revitalize the Nismo name for cars other than the GT-R and 370Z by letting those engineers tackle the 2013 Sentra, Altima, and upcoming Maxima would certainly put a smile on my face as well as the rest of the Nissan fan boys and girls. With an updated chassis and focus on lighter weight we should see an all around better 2013 Nissan Sentra SE-R Nismo. So look for some stiff competition in this compact performance class. So therefore this would put Nissan in the race for hot hatchbacks around $25k dollars. Expect some stiffer suspension and a nice 6-speed manual or automatic to go along with this ride.
