It’s been just under a month since Nissan quietly released gas mileage figures for its all-new 2013 Sentra compact sedan. 

Now Nissan has announced pricing for this redesigned sedan.

Including a mandatory $780 handling and destination fee, the base-level 2013 Sentra S, with 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed manual transmission, will start at $16,770. 

Opt for the base-level Sentra S with Nissan’s all-new Continuously Variable Transmission, and that price rises to $18,040.

That places the base-level 2013 Sentra some $440 cheaper than the outgoing model. 

Thanks to an all-new engine, transmission and even a leaner, greener stance, the 2013 Sentra is also much more fuel efficient than its predecessor.

In fact, spec a 2013 Sentra with 1.8-liter engine and all-new CVT transmission, and you can look forward to 40 mpg highway and 34 mpg combined. 

That’s an improvement of 4 mpg combined, and 6 mpg highway on the 2012s.

As with past years, the 2013 Sentra is available with a variety of different trim packages, ranging from the entry level Sentra S through to the top-spec Sentra SL, which will set you back a total of $20,540. 

It should be noted however, that only the Sentra S is offered with a manual gearbox. All other models use the all-new CVT transmission, which, similar to the CVT transmission used in the 2013 Altima, is said to improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent

The all-new 2013 Sentra will go on sale nationwide on October 16, with specially-designed fuel economy variants (FE+) available from December.
