The Sentra is a solid choice in a competitive segment with offerings like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. While the Sentra doesn’t necessarily excel in most areas, it’s a good all-rounder. The Sentra is stylish, has many features and offers good fuel economy, which is what many buyers want at the end of the day.

Performance

Every Sentra is powered by a 149-horsepower 2L four-cylinder engine. While the acceleration is good on the lower end, it struggles as you gain speed. We recorded a 0-100 km/h time of 9.1 seconds, which is slower than some of the other sedans in this segment. The Sentra’s continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is smooth and unobtrusive in everyday driving and a step up compared to Nissan’s older CVTs.

The brake pedal is smooth and easy to control in normal driving. The steering and handling are what you expect from a commuter vehicle and aren’t geared towards a sporty or engaging drive.

Interior & Comfort

The interior feels a bit dated, especially when compared to some of the competition. However, it’s still a comfortable place to spend time, with easily accessible controls for both the driver and passenger. The infotainment system and climate control are both easy to use.

The cabin is spacious and there’s plenty of room for front passengers, and the rear legroom is among the best in its class. Most drivers will find it easy to get comfortable thanks to the ample adjustments in the seat and steering wheel. As for seating, both front and rear seats are comfortable, and the front seats offer good cushioning and support. The Sentra also has great visibility all around.

When it comes to the ride, it’s comfortable and the suspension does a good job of handling road imperfections. Road and wind noise is noticeable at highway speeds but not bothersome.

Technology

The Sentra is packed with standard safety features and driver aids, with options like adaptive cruise control and a 360-degree parking camera system available. Nissan’s standard safety suite is quite comprehensive and a lot of the features are offered even on the lower trims.

While the infotainment system is a bit sluggish to respond and the graphics are a little outdated, buyers still get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration as standard.

Storage

The Sentra excels when it comes to storage space, offering 404.9L of trunk space, which is above average for a small sedan. The 60/40-split rear seats can also fold down to accommodate longer cargo items.

In terms of interior space, there’s plenty of room for small personal belongings, and the rear seats offer a decent amount of space for child seats.

Fuel Economy

The official fuel economy rating for the Nissan Sentra is 7.3/5.8 City/Hwy L/100 km. In our testing, we averaged 7.1 L/100km with both city and highway driving. On a full tank of gas, we had a range of 487km.
