The 2017 Nissan Sentra: A Superhero in Plain Clothes

The new Nissan Sentra doesn’t come with a cape or spandex, but that doesn’t mean it’s void of superhero-like powers. What makes the Sentra such a heroic protagonist? It’s spacious, fuel-efficient, reasonably priced, and never full of itself. In all, most Albuquerque Sentra owners would label this compact car as “practical,” and that’s exactly how Nissan has marketed it. Now, Mr. Practicality is here to save your day.


Sentra Strengths

  • Large & In Charge – The new Nissan Sentra is a standout in its segment thanks to its roomy cabin (95.9 cu. ft.). Head- and legroom in the rear are on par with even some midsize rivals, and trunk space is equally impressive at 15.1 cubic feet. Storage cubbies are large and ample; the glove box is deep yet wide, and the door bins can easily accommodate a large water bottle.
  • Heroics & Safety – The 2017 Sentra keeps everyone safe, whether or not they’re damsels in distress. Earning an IIHS Top Safety Pick, this compact sedan comes standard with a number of advanced safety features. The Sentra SV comes with ABS, Easy Fill TPMS, stability control, a rearview camera, and an innovative airbag system. Step up to the SR or SL trim, and you’ll feel safe and secure with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and more.
  • Economical – All Nissan cars for sale are priced very well, though it’s the Sentra that wears the low-cost emblem across its chest. The 2017 Sentra comes with an MSRP under $17,000, and you can also take advantage of other money-saving Nissan deals on a Sentra right here at our Albuquerque Nissan car dealer.

How to Take a “Two-Tank” Summer Road Trip in a 2017 Nissan Altima

What, pray tell, is a “Two-Tank” summer road trip? When you take a road trip in the summer on just two tanks of gas, of course. And with the all-new 2017 Nissan Altima and its enormous 18-gallon fuel tank, you can really go places on just dos fill-ups. Here are some perfect summer vacationing ideas that’ll keep you sightseeing without having to stop at that seedy off-ramp gas station.


The Ultimate Vegas Vacation

Just 575 miles—about 8 hours of driving time—separates you from the bright lights and endless nights of Las Vegas, where jackpots are always earned and rest is for the weak. Take a Friday off work, grab three of your pals, and load up your Altima with snacks, fancy attire, and an extended USB cable for everyone in the back to charge their smartphones. With 101.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, the 2017 Altima won’t restrict stretch-out space on your 8-hour adventure to the Vegas Strip. And don’t forget to snap a photo at the Grand Canyon on your way back home! Continue Reading →
