2016 Nissan Sentra for Sale near Stafford, VA

The Sentra was named to invoke feelings of security. Ira Bachrach of Namelab created the Nissan Sentra’s name, inspired by the words “central” and “sentry”, and that’s just what the 2016 Nissan Sentra for sale near Stafford, VA, is: safe. Pohanka Nissan’s amicable staff is well-versed in the Sentra’s safety features, but we’ll break them down for you here, as well.

Let’s begin with the frame. Starting with a good foundation is key to a good product. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety performed all of their crash tests on the Sentra, and it passed with flying colors. It received a rating of “good” in the small and moderate overlap frontal offset tests, side-strength, roof strength, and whiplash tests. It received the accolade of 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick, so you rest assured that you and your loved ones are guarded. The NHTSA also rated the Sentra well, giving it five stars in side crash testing, using both male- and female-sized dummies in the front and back1. In Edmund’s brake testing, the Sentra SL came to a complete halt from 60 to 0 MPH in only 113 feet, an exceptionally top-notch length for its compact economy sedan segment2.

It’s the 21st century, though, and Nissan has developed tech-based technology to complement the strong frame of the 2016 Sentra for sale near Stafford, VA. Using available Safety Shield TechnologiesTM, you’re likely to feel like you’ve grown a set of eyes in the back of your head. Thanks to features like Rear Cross Traffic Alert3 and the RearView Monitor4, backing out of parking spaces won’t be a hassle. With a Blind Spot Warning5 system, you’ll always know when you can safely change lanes. The Technology package, available on the Sentra SR and SL trims, adds on Forward Emergency Braking6 and Intelligent Cruise Control7. The ICC has a navigation-enabled function, which allows it to integrate route information to anticipate the next curve on the road. It also uses a distance sensor to gauge how far the vehicle in front of you is. 

Nissan Sentra RearView Monitor

Forward Emergency Braking6 is a useful feature whether you live in the suburbs, way out in the country, or in the densely populated city. It assists you by detecting potential forward obstacles, such as other vehicles or pedestrians. It first flashes warnings on the Drive-Assist®8 Display monitor, if its warnings go unheeded, it can apply the emergency brake itself, to prevent or reduce impact, if collision is imminent.
