2016 Nissan Sentra Pricing

Nissan Sentra Model Summary

The mid-cycle freshening for the 2016 Sentra includes restyled sheet metal that shares a family resemblance with the Altima and Maxima, a retuned suspension, and available active safety features such as radar blind-spot warning, forward emergency braking, and rear cross-traffic alert. The compact Sentra ultimately trails the class best. The 1.8-liter four-cylinder is mated to a CVT that feels like an automatic. We measured a respectable 29-mpg overall. The engine is noisy, but road noise is relatively well-suppressed. The ride is steady, though pavement flaws deliver small, stiff impacts. Handling is fairly responsive and secure at its limits, but the steering feel is vague. A tall stance aids cabin access. Features on the SV trim include infotainment and a backup camera. A low-cost navigation system is optional. Negatives include well-below-average reliability and a very low owner-satisfaction score. It scored Good in the IIHS small-overlap crash test when retested.
