Nissan Sentra Overview
The compact Sentra sedan looks good at first glance but ultimately trails the class best by quite a large margin. The 1.8-liter four-cylinder is mated to a CVT that feels more like an automatic, which is good. We measured a respectable 29-mpg overall. That 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 proved 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 nav system is optional. Negatives include well-below-average reliability, a low owner-satisfaction score, and a Poor score in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
