by

Nissan today announced that the 2019 Sentra, excluding the base Sentra S model, features standard CarPlay and Android Auto.


This is the first model year of the Sentra with CarPlay, following in the footsteps of the 2017 and newer Maxima, 2017 and newer Micra, 2017 and newer Murano, 2018 GT-R, 2018 Kicks, 2018 LEAF, 2018 Rogue, and 2019 Altima.

CarPlay enables iPhone users to access a range of apps from the NissanConnect infotainment system, including Messages, Apple Maps, Apple Music, Podcasts, Overcast, Spotify, SiriusXM Radio, Pandora, WhatsApp, Downcast, Slacker Radio, Stitcher, and, starting with iOS 12, Google Maps and Waze.

The 2019 Sentra is on sale now at Nissan dealerships across the United States, with CarPlay-enabled packages starting at $19,090.

I've had the distinct displeasure of having to use the OEM Nissan system in a couple of rentals over the years. CarPlay is a huge improvement, and this scenario is exactly what its intended for - replacing the more annoying/poorly designed systems that some auto manufacturers use (I'm looking @ you, Lexus/Toyota).

Now, if only their cars were ever worthy of more than rental fodder... (GTR excluded of course)

Meh. People buy cars that rely 100% on gas? Wake me when Nissan sticks this is a hybrid (not the Leaf...) that gets decent Prius-like mileage

Yes. If I were to buy a new car tomorrow, it would be 100% ICE.

What was wrong with the sentra and altima? I was considering getting one of them as I need a good fuel efficient vehicle for work because I have a long commute for my job. I got me a 2017 Ford Explorer but the 20 mpg on it sucks.

The problem with most of the plug in hybrids I looked at that aren't Tesla all look like they are made for kids or econo boxes for people on welfare.

They're just utterly horrible cars. No high speed stability (70+), gutless engines and an absolutely awful CVT. Their interiors leave much to be desired as well.

Need a good, fuel efficient vehicle? Try the Mazda 6. I drove one of the newer models, and while not quite like my E90 335i, it reminded me a lot of the older BMW 5ers (think 1997-2003 models). Good road feel, taut but not harsh suspension, and excellent directional stability. Their interiors were quite a bit better than the Walmart quality Nissans as well. The Volvo S60 is also an excellent choice; the 2014+ T5 routinely returns 40ish mpg highway for my friend's mother, (she does a lot of highway miles @ around 80 mph) and they have some of the best seats put in a production car. A CPO model carries a 7 year, 100K mileage warranty, and they can be had in the low 20s/high teens.

you're comparing a sub-$20k or less nissan, to a $30k+ bmw. two different cars, aimed and two different buyers.

I'm comparing the Nissan to a Mazda. Both in roughly the same price bracket. The BMW comparison was to underscore how well the Mazda performs.
