LA Show 2013 Highlights: Nissan Sentra Nismo Concept

Nissan's Sentra Nismo concept has made its debut at the LA motor show.

The performance tuning arm of the Japanese car firm has upped the ante on the standard Sentra, discarding the 130bhp 1.8-litre inline four cylinder unit and using the turbocharged 1.8-litre four-pot motor that powers the Nissan Juke Nismo RS. It develops 240bhp in this form.

The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential, while the standard suspension has been fettled with Nismo performance springs and shocks. The Sentra Nismo is endowed with performance tyres and a Brembo brake package.

Exterior modifications include a deeper front fascia, red accents on the lower side sills, dual exhaust tailpipes and rear diffuser.

Inside, the Nissan Sentra Nismo concept gains a mix of alcantara and leather trim on the seats and pillars, with a special Nismo-style steering wheel. Carbon fibre instrument panels and leather-trimmed gear shift knob and shift surround complete the package.

While Nissan has not confirmed if the the US-only Sentra Nismo will make production, Nissan America's Fred Diaz told Autocar on the LA motor show stand, "It gives a hint of a future Nismo model."
