Faster than walking. I am sorry to say I owned a 1999 Sentra with the same engine transmission and it was not fast merging onto freeways I had to be very careful. around 100 hp with A/C turned on that car was scary slow. Good Luck

If it's a 200SX SE-R, it still is considered quick; even by today's standards. Not fast, but quick still; base models and SE models use a smaller, lesspowerful engine and aren't even quick. You can always do engine swaps on these, regardless of 200SX. They can be really fast if set up correctly, but it's no cheap to do that. Many think that an intake and exhaust will give them a power boost but it really doesn't do much... if anything at all. You're not gonna even feel 3-5 hp.

No. It's not. The quickest stock Sentra (same as the 200SX) was the SE-R Spec V that had 180+hp. Those weren't fast by any stretch of the imagination (or quick). That 200SX, if you're lucky, is a mid 16 second car in the 1/4 mile. Considering a 215hp mustang with a manual from the same year is considered slow, yet runs about 2 seconds quicker than that...Yeah, it's slow.
