Powering the Sentra and Altima
Just because you’re looking for a sedan, doesn’t mean you’ll want it to give up powerful engine options. Luckily, you’ll find great choices in both the Sentra and Altima.
The 2019 Sentra comes standard with a 1.8-liter engine that’s matched with an almost gearless Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) to provide ultimate fuel efficiency. This engine achieves an EPA-estimated 29/37 MPG city/highway1, so you’ll get to your destinations without stopping to refuel.
The Altima offers two powerful, yet fuel-efficient engine options. The available 2.5-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) engine achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 28/39 MPG city/highway2. With numbers like these, you’ll be hitting the city and back with no stopping in between!
