1989 Nissan Stanza 0.0 0

September 5, 1988
There`s nothing wrong with the Nissan Stanza and Sentra that a majorstyling overhaul couldn`t cure. But that`s a couple years away.

We test-drove the Stanza one week, Sentra the next. Both were four-doorsedans with deep blue exterior finish. It was difficult to tell them apart.That was a plus for the smaller, less expensive Sentra, but a minus for thelarger, more expensive Stanza.

Powered by a fuel-injected, 2-liter 4-cylinder teamed with optionalautomatic, Stanza had adequate power but was noisy at initial acceleration.

Sentra, with a fuel-injected, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder teamed with optionalautomatic, was even noisier. With only 71 horsepower, the 1.6 is no screamer. Both earn good marks for front seat room, trunk space, location and easeof seeing and using controls, but come up short in styling, noise levels, and rear seat head room. Engines need a dose of power, the fire walls some addedinsulation.

Stanza is built on a 100.4-inch wheelbase and is 177.8 inches long.Sentra is built on a 95.7-inch wheelbase and is 168.7 inches long.

Stanza standard equipment includes power steering and brakes, 5-speedmanual, tinted glass, dual trip odometers, tilt steering, intermittent wipers and rear window defroster.

Sentra standard equipment includes four-wheel independent suspension,power brakes and halogen headlamps.

Base price for the Stanza is $13,449, up from $12,999 at the outset ofthe model year, and the Sentra $10,349, up from $10,199. The rising value ofthe Japanese yen against the U.S. dollar prompted the increases.
