|The production version of the significantly redesigned 2016 Nissan Sentra compact sedan and the extensively revised Nissan Altima mid-size sedan will make their Canadian debuts at the upcoming Montreal International Auto Show, 14 January.|
The Nissan Sentra has undergone a significant refreshing, starting with a revised exterior and the addition of an expanded suite of available safety and driving aid technologies. On the other hand, the Nissan Altima, the best-selling mid-size in North America, has been redesigned for the 2016 model year, including new exterior and interior styling, enhanced technology and connectivity, new safety features, along with a new Altima SR (2.5l) sports version.
Following a relatively successful year for the ever-popular Rogue and the all-new Murano Crossovers, Nissan is now entering the period of the sedan for the following calendar, with major revisions to the Maxima, the refreshed Altima and the updated Sentra.
The sedan segment continues to flourish in the province of Quebec, and this year show goers will be among the first in Canada to see two new familiar nameplates, Sentra and Altima, both showcasing the latest in Nissan’s design language.
2016 Nissan Sentra: 7th Generation and counting
The Nissan Sentra compact sedan has achieved some impressive numbers over its more than 30 years and seven generations of production. In Canada, Sentra is Nissan’s second best-selling vehicle, behind Rogue. And, since the introduction of the latest generation design in fall 2012, Sentra has experienced continuous growth in sales and market share year over year due to continuous product improvements, and contributes to the Nissan brand, the fastest-growing brand in Canada.
To help keep the momentum going for the 2016 model year, the Sentra has undergone a significant refreshing, starting with a revised exterior and the addition of an expanded suite of available safety and driving aid technologies.
The 2016 Altima, on the other side, offers a wide-ranging list of enhancements, including a refreshed exterior, following the Nissan’s new “Energetic Flow” design language initiative, introduced on the 2015 Murano and 2016 Maxima. The redesign offers a new lowered muscular front fascia, distinctive V-motion grille, new hood and fenders with tailored character lines, and available signature LED boomerang headlights and DRLs (Daytime Running Lights).
In addition, the Altima lineup has been expanded for 2016 with a new Altima SR grade featuring 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, smoked headlights, paddle shifters, rear spoiler, unique suspension tuning and sport interior accents.
