Nissan is making its comprehensive suite of advanced driver assist technologies standard on several 2021 models, including the Sentra. As part of the Safety Shield 360, the Sentra boasts tech designed to help warn you of dangers and automatically engage the brakes to help minimize an accident (Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection) and point out threatens you can’t see (Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert). You’ll retain a safe lane position with help from Lane Departure Warning and oncoming traffic won’t be blinded by your headlights with High Beam Assist. Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Automatic Braking help safeguard your reverse maneuvers.
