Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

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

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

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

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

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

Overview

A longtime player in the compact segment, the Nissan Sentra is a good choice for the economy-oriented buyer who wants good fuel efficiency, value-priced options and plenty of rear seat space.

What's New for 2015

Changes are minimal this year, and buyers can choose from four new exterior colors: Titanium, Red Alert, Cayenne Red, and Fresh Powder.

Choosing your Nissan Sentra

All Sentras come with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. Those who like to shift for themselves can have a six-speed manual transmission -- but only on the base S model, where a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional. All other trim levels come with the CVT as standard equipment.

The Sentra offers five trim levels altogether:

Nissan Sentra

S

The base S starts out at $16,480 with the manual transmission and $17,330 with the CVT, and comes with a fair amount of equipment for the price. Standard features include LED accent lights, automatic headlights, chrome door handles, cruise control, a four-speaker audio system with a CD player, MP3 capability, a USB connection and an auxiliary jack, power windows and door locks, and Bluetooth connectivity.

The S does not have any option packages.

Nissan Sentra

FE+ S

The FE+ S is all about pushing the Sentra's fuel economy to a combined 34 mpg, and checks in at $17,730. The CVT is standard, as are low-rolling-resistance tires, a rear deck-lid spoiler, and deflectors for the rear tires and underbody.

Like the S, the FE+ S doesn't offer buyers any option packages.

Nissan Sentra

SV

Building on the S and starting at $18,300, the SV comes with more high-end features like premium cloth seating, SiriusXM capabilities, Bluetooth streaming audio, NissanConnect with mobile apps, keyless entry, and a rearview monitor.

The SV trim has three value-packed option packages:

  • The Navigation Package checks in at $720. In addition to navigation, it adds a 5.8-inch color touchscreen, voice recognition, SiriusXM Traffic, SiriusXM Travel Link, and hands-free texting.
  • The Style Package
  • Next up is the Cold Weather Package
Nissan Sentra

SR

The sport-oriented SR has premium sport cloth seats with heat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, silver interior trim, mirror-mounted LED turn signals, fog lights, heated mirrors, 17-inch forked aluminum wheels, chrome exhaust tips and SR-exclusive sport body kit, grille, and spoilers. These extra features push the SR's MSRP to $19,910.

In addition to the Navigation Package, priced at $720, there's also an SR Premium Package with a moonroof, leather seating, a Bose eight-speaker sound system, HomeLink universal remote, and an auto-dimming mirror for $2,230.

Nissan Sentra

SL

The $20,670 SL has high-end features like 17-inch aluminum wheels, heated mirrors, leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, an auto-dimming mirror with a compass, maple wood interior trim, and a security system.

The $720 Navigation Package is also available here, as is a $1,130 SL Premium Package with a moonroof, an eight-speaker Bose system, and illuminated vanity mirrors.

CarsDirect Tip

We think the mid-range S and SV offer the best value for the Sentra's target buyer. We can't fault the SR and SL for offering so much extra for only a few thousand dollars, but their MSRPs push the Sentra into competition with more accomplished competitors.
