"The Spec V isn’t just any Sentra SE-R, it’s Nissan’s dedicated sport performance compact seeking to do battle with a flood of fast compacts on the market. Thankfully for Nissan, the Spec V is a solid effort in the class, with enough power to do battle on its own terms. There’s 200 horsepower to be had from the 2.5-liter engine, but one of the Spec V’s tricks is that the long-stroke motor makes torque in a big way. That allows the Spec V to have a real advantage in certain situations—off the line or exiting a tight corner, the Spec V pulls hard. All that torque also makes the Sentra forgiving, meaning that if revs fall to low, the Spec V will still find the grunt to send the tach swinging. Uniquely tuned suspension lowers the Spec V and provides greater cornering ability. Thankfully, the Spec V is all-business, and not blighted by the addition of ill-thought-out cladding and wings. There’s a decklid spoiler, SE-R badging, and tastefully smoked taillights, but other than that the Spec V exudes a grown-up class that’s in tune with its on-track competency."
