Nissan Sentra Overview

The Sentra compact sedan looks good at first glance but ultimately trails the class best. We got 29 mpg overall from the noisy 1.8-liter four-cylinder and CVT, which feels more like a regular automatic. The engine is noisy but road noise is relatively well-suppressed. The ride is steady but impacts are stiff over pavement imperfections. Handling is fairly responsive and proved secure at its limits but the steering is vague. The tall stance makes cabin access easy. Features content on the SV trim includes infotainment and a backup camera. A low-cost nav system is optional. Reliability has dropped to well below average. It also scored a poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
