    Nissan was making announcements in Miami at the beginning of this fall/winter's auto show circuit:

    The 2017 Sentra SR Turbo ditches the vanilla sedan’s 1.8-liter in favor of a turbocharged, direct-injection 1.6-liter four-cylinder borrowed from the Juke subcompact crossover. Making 188 horsepower and 177 pounds-feet of torque, the mill boosts the Sentra’s power by 50 percent. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual or a CVT with manual shift mode.

    There’s plenty of evidence that Nissan has an even hotter NISMO version in the works. Besides the Sentra NISMO Concept (unveiled at the 2013 L.A. Auto Show as a “performance study”), Car & Driver has snapped photos of a disguised Sentra sporting an aggressive front spoiler — something you won’t find on the SR Turbo.

    hybrid models sport a 2.0-liter four-cylinder coupled to a 30 kW electric motor. Available on front- and all-wheel-drive models, the hybrid drivetrain is intended to be unobtrusive, with no impact on cargo or passenger space.

    The gas engine’s power rating is 141 horsepower and 144 pounds-feet of torque, while the electric motor generates 40 hp and 118 lb-ft. The combined output is 176 horsepower, or 1 hp more than a conventional 2.5-liter Rogue. An Xtronic continuously variable transmission is standard.
