1995 Nissan 200SX Review

Fun to drive and easy on the eyes.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

Introduced this year, the 1995 Nissan 200SX takes the Nissan Sentra and changes it into a sporty, fun-to-drive coupe. Despite the name, it is not that closely related to the 240SX, although the two have very similar markets. While the emphasis is on performance, the 200SX does not have particularly impressive speed and acceleration. While the engine does well enough, speed is not its purpose. It also focuses on maneuverability instead and can take twists and curves as well as some significantly higher priced vehicles.

The 1995 Nissan 200SX is a reasonably priced vehicle that is decently equipped with the SE model and slightly better appointed SE-R model. It is potentially more fun to drive than many other sports vehicles, since it emphasizes maneuverability rather than speed. It’s an especially fun vehicle to drive on twisting, turning roads.

The Range

Engines: 1.6-liter four-cylinder, 2.0-liter four-cylinder
Transmissions: five-speed manual, four-speed automatic

What's New

The 1995 Nissan 200SX is a new model based on the design of the Sentra.

Exterior

The 1995 Nissan 200SX is a two-door coupe with a curved but slightly flattened appearance. It is sporty, but it is more pragmatic with its design than some performance oriented vehicles. Alloy wheels are optional on the base model and standard equipment on the SE and SE-R models, which also has a rear spoiler as standard equipment.

Interior

The 1995 Nissan 200SX varies widely between the models. The base model only offers power windows as standard. Air-conditioning is an optional feature, and there is no sound system available. The SE is much better equipped with cruise control, air-conditioning, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, AM/FM radio, and a cassette player as optional equipment. The SE-R adds leather trim and an anti-theft alarm system as standard equipment.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Nissan 200SX is designed with performance as the primary focus. More luxury focused drivers are more likely to opt for the larger Sentra. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine is more powerful than is normally expected. It is not extremely impressive on its own merits alone, but it provides good acceleration to highway speeds. The main strength is turning. It can make tight turns that few vehicles can make outside sports cars. It is designed to be a fun vehicle to drive, but primarily in terms of maneuvering through twisty roadways rather than pure speed.

Safety

The 1995 Nissan 200SX has dual-front airbags standard for the driver and passenger. In addition, four wheel anti-lock brakes are available as an optional feature on the SE and SE-R.

EPA Fuel Economy

Nissan 200SX: 18/24 mpg city/highway
