The redesigned Sentra sheds the dowdy look of its predecessor and gets several major upgrades. A 149-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine replaces the 1.8-liter, and the continuously variable transmission gets more refined. The car is now lower and wider, and gets a more advanced rear suspension that improves ride and handling.
