The B13 was the first to offer Nissan's famous and then-new SR20DE engine in the sporty two-door SE-R model. Setting subcompact speed records of the time, the Sentra SE-R came with 140 hp ( kW) at 6400 rpm and 132 lb⋅ft (179 N⋅m) of torque at 4800 rpm. It could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in seconds and the quarter-mile in seconds. It came with 4-wheel disc brakes and had a MacPherson strut independent suspension . Further improving the handling was a viscous limited-slip differential, which was standard equipment on the SE-R. The B13 SE-R returns 21 mpg ‑US (11 L/100 km; 25 mpg ‑imp ) city/29 mpg ‑US ( L/100 km; 35 mpg ‑imp ) highway.
