    Expert Rating

    4.35 (Excellent)
    28 City / 35 Highway

    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.

    Choosing Your Nissan Sentra

    The Sentra comes in two main flavors: a frugal compact sedan with a 124-horsepower 1.8-liter engine, and a sport sedan with a 188-horsepower 1.6-liter engine.

    The frugal sedan comes in four trim levels, from cheap and cheerful to inexpensive and well-equipped.


    The base Sentra is fairly plain, but serviceable. A manual transmission is standard and raises engine output to 130 horsepower. The optional continuously-variable transmission (CVT) keeps the original 124 horsepower rating, but raises fuel efficiency to 32 mpg in combined driving. Drivers have a choice of Eco, Normal, and Sport driving modes. The S comes with Bluetooth, cruise control, a USB connection port, and automatic headlights.


    The SV adds the following to the S as standard equipment: keyless entry, Bluetooth streaming audio, premium cloth seats, a sliding armrest, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, hands-free text message assistant, and a 5-inch color display. The CVT is the only available transmission on the SV model and up.


    The sporty-looking SR model rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels, features a rear spoiler, and has extended lower body side sills. Additional exterior trim bits include LED projector headlights, fog lights, a chrome exhaust tip, heated exterior mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, and SR badging. The interior gets heated front sport seats in premium fabric.


    The top-of-the-line SL features leather seating, a power driver seat with lumbar adjustments, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and piano black interior trim. Safety gets a boost from blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Other equipment is shared with the SR.

    The sports sedan version is available in two models.

    SR Turbo

    The SR Turbo builds on the SR with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 188 horsepower. Along with a stiffer body, you get a sport-tuned suspension, larger brakes, and upgraded steering. A sunroof is also standard. The Turbo is offered with a manual transmission or a CVT with manual shift mode.


    The NISMO carries the turbocharged engine, plus performance upgrades such as 18-inch wheels, four-wheels disc brakes, unique suspension tuning, and a functional rear spoiler. The exterior wear special NISMO design elements.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Feeling sporty? Skip the SR and head straight to the SR Turbo. The added performance will turn even a trip to the grocery store into a good time.
