The sporty SE-R models are terrific cars, fun to drive, with responsive suspensions and a bigger engine that's strong and smooth. With prices starting at just $11,799 for the XE, the Sentra is a good value. Perhaps a better value is the GXE model, which comes loaded with popular equipment for just $13,749.

There's a killer stereo available, making these cars a great choice for people who want more than basic transportation in their lives.
