Nissan introduced the seventh-generation Sentra (codenamed B17) back in August 2012. Compared to the previous model, the new Sentra featured heavily redesigned interior and exterior styling cues borrowed from the Altima and Maxima.
A facelift came in 2014, bringing a set of revisions for the CVT gearbox, suspension, and steering. The sedan's tech credentials also got a bump through the updated NissanConnect suite.
Another facelift followed in 2016 and changed the exterior design while adding a new steering wheel and a redesigned interior layout.
