Today the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) upgraded the 2016 Nissan Sentra to its highest rating of "Top Safety Pick Plus" when equipped with optional Forward Emergency Braking technology.
Since the introduction of the seventh-generation Sentra in fall 2012, Nissan's compact sedan has experienced tremendous growth in sales and market share, making it one of Nissan's fastest growing nameplates.
Following major revisions of the Nissan Maxima flagship sedan and best-selling Nissan Altima for the 2016 model year, Nissan today debuted a significantly revised 2016 Sentra at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The 2015 Nissan Sentra is the top Compact Car in the 2015 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study℠ (IQS), the industry benchmark for new-vehicle quality. Sentra – also awarded an IIHS "Top Safety Pick" earlier this year – received the award yesterday at the Automotive Press Association (APA) Luncheon in Detroit.
Nissan's Canadian sales have consistently outperformed the industry in 2014 – up 28.5 per cent CYTD through June. And though led by the all-new Micra and recently redesigned Altima, Rogue, Sentra and Pathfinder, other models such as LEAF (+86.3%), Versa Note (+14.4%), Frontier (+20.5%) and NV200 (+244.3%) are also showing strong results month after month. This gives the Nissan lineup great momentum heading into the 2015 model year.
