2013 Nissan Sentra Spy Photos
Nissan's small car gets ready to enter the compact-sedan octagon.

What It Is: A 2013 Nissan Sentra prototype wearing zebra-stripe black and white camouflage. The Sentra likely is the next Nissan vehicle in line to get a major update; the company also has plans to revise four other vehicles in the next year or so. Nissan has already previewed the new Sentra with the nearly identical Sylphy, which was revealed for global markets at this year’s Beijing auto show.

Why It Matters: Look up the word “dated” in the dictionary, and you’re likely to find a picture of the current Sentra. It has been on sale since 2007, and its styling makes it look as though it were constructed from Lego pieces. The blocky design originally emulated the two-generations-removed Altima sedan, so it’s about time for a redesign. A lot has changed in the compact-car segment since the Sentra was last updated, and it’s heating up as more buyers look to downsize into cars with greater fuel efficiency. Nissan’s small offering needs to be fresh and on its game to properly compete in this new small-car arena.

Platform: The next Sentra will again ape its bigger brother, the Altima. Like the 2013 version of Nissan’s mid-size sedan, the Sentra gets a softer and curvier look punctuated by flowing creases and lines. We think the design is somewhat handsome, but its body panels are not the most exciting in the compact class

Powertrain: The new Sylphy gets a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a CVT; we suspect the Sentra we get here will get the same combo. This of course would mean the new Sentra will lose some displacement relative to the outgoing car, which is powered by a 2.0-liter engine. No surprise, since Nissan did the same thing with the latest Versa sedan, which switched from a 1.8-liter four to a 1.6-liter mill. Expect the downsizing, as well as other improvements, to help the new car return better fuel economy than the 2012 Sentra.

Competition: Chevrolet Cruze, Dodge Dart, Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Mazda 3.

Estimated Arrival Time and Price: Expect to see the 2013 Nissan Sentra in showrooms later this year after it is revealed this summer. No word on pricing as of yet—or a high-performance SE-R model—but we suspect it won’t move much from the current model’s $17,210 base price.

Probably a little like this.

It's about time Nissan got competitive in this segment; newcomers like the Elantra are light-years better. We recently rented a 2012 Sentra and I wasn't impressed in the least. Here's hoping that the 2013 model will get Nissan back into the game...

Not sure when official pics will be released. All the pics shown are of a Thailand version of what was common with the existing Sentra. It should be very similar.
