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. The Sentra had previously held the agency's Top Safety Pick designation prior to IIHS confirmation of the required front crash prevention technology performance.
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 “4-Door Sports Car” and best-selling Nissan Altima for the 2016 model year, Nissan today debuted a significantly revised 2016 Sentra at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Nissan is a brand on the move. And on a roll. The past two years have seen the back-to-back introductions of the segment-busting 2014 Rogue and 2015 Murano, which helped drive Nissan to record 2014 calendar year sales of 1,269,565 (+12.2%) in the United States.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) today awarded the 2015 Nissan Sentra a “Top Safety Pick” vehicle safety rating. The Institute’s “Top Safety Pick” award recognizes passenger vehicles that excel in protecting passengers in moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests and also achieve a “Good” or “Acceptable” rating in the small overlap frontal test. The 2015 Sentra scored “Good” in all five of the “Top Safety Pick” categories.
Nissan's U.S. sales have significantly outperformed the industry in 2014, up 12.7 percent CYTD through June. Sales have been led by the recently redesigned Altima, Rogue and Sentra – along with other models such as LEAF, JUKE, Frontier and NV200. This gives the Nissan lineup great momentum heading into the 2015 model year. Headlining the changes for 2015 is the upcoming launch of the all-new Nissan Murano. There are also a number of significant enhancements to other Nissan cars, SUVs and trucks for 2015. Following is a top-line overview of the 2015 changes, followed by more complete "Fast Facts" product information.
