Pricing's just been released on the 2009 Nissan Sentra lineup including the SE-R model. Base Sentra pricing starts at $16,730 with a CVT transmission, while the top-shelf SE-R Spec V with 200 HP and a six-speed stick runs $21,160 before the optional helical limited slip diff is added. All models come with a 2-liter four-cylinder engine, new trunk lid design, MP3 playback capability and a Premium Audio Package, while SE-R models can be outfitted with a glass moonroof and Nissan Intelligent Key. Granted, the Spec V isn't going to have any WRX owners shaking, but it also runs about 5 grand less; don't forget to pony up for the LSD if you plan on extracting any real performance though. Press release after the jump.
