The 1994 Nissan Sentra XE is one of the model-year entries of the Nissan Sentra, a formerly compact car from Nissan Motors that has grown in size over the years. The XE suffix symbolizes its status above the base E and below the luxury-designated LE, sporty SE and top-of-the-line GXE. The 1994 Sentra XE is available in two body types: sedan and coupe.
Engine, Transmission and Fuel Economy
The 1994 Nissan Sentra XE has a 1.6-liter, 108-horsepower, four-cylinder engine. A five-speed manual overdrive is the standard transmission, although the four-speed automatic transmission is a popular choice. While the 1994 Sentra XE's with automatic gearboxes have a fuel economy of 26/35 mpg, those with manual transmissions have a fuel economy of 29/38 mpg.
The 1994 Nissan Sentra XE is practically bare in terms of safety features. There are non of the basic safety features like airbags and power door locks, let alone others like traction control, vehicle anti-theft system, keyless entry and ABS braking.
A five-seater, the 1994 Nissan Sentra XE has air conditioning, cruise control, tilt steering, and a stereo system that includes a cassette player. Forget getting one with other interior features such as CD player or sunroofs, as they were not even made available as options for that model year.
Each 1994 Nissan Sentra XE comes with standard 13-inch steel wheels and a rear window defogger. Missing completely, though, are features such as fog lamps, interval wipers and rear spoilers. Also unavailable are power windows, which come standard in only one of the 1994 Sentra trims: the GXE.
When the 1994 Nissan Sentra XE was released, the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) was $12,699. As of 2010, you can buy one with a price tag in the low $2,000's.
The 1994 Nissan Sentra XE is an older car that would likely have lots of mileage if you get one, and the coupe and sedan version share the same plain, boxy styling. However, when it first came out, it was popular among drivers due to its relatively affordable value.
