Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2013 Nissan Sentra OVERVIEW

New for 2013, the Nissan Sentra offers lots of space and fuel efficiency for not a lot of money. It may not have the power or advanced features of some competitors, but the Sentra puts popular options and excellent fuel economy within the reach of economy-minded shoppers. It's a wise choice for buyers whose top priority is value for money.

All Sentras have a 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 130 horsepower. The base Sentra S starts things off with a six-speed manual transmission or optional CVT automatic transmission; 16-inch steel wheels; tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel; power windows, locks and mirrors; air conditioning; and a four-speaker audio system with auxiliary input.

The FE+ S gives better fuel economy thanks to improved aerodynamics, a rear spoiler, low rolling resistance tires, and revised transmission ratios. The SV, meanwhile, adds a six-speaker audio system, cruise control, a CVT automatic transmission, and upgraded cloth upholstery. The FE+ configuration is also available on the SV.

The SR has sportier features like 17-inch alloy wheels; a more aggressive front fascia, body kit and rear spoiler; and special seat fabrics. The SL, finally, tops the Sentra range with automatic headlamps, keyless entry and start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, a satellite radio, and a USB input with iPod connectivity.

Features like Bluetooth and keyless entry are also available as options on lower trims, unlike some competitors that make them available only on top trims, if at all.
