Driving Impression

Until 2016, all Sentras held what’s now the base engine. Not especially quiet, lacking somewhat in power, the 1.8-liter four doesn’t provide a stimulating experience. Basically, it does its job without fuss.

Nissan’s latest CVT performs decently, as expected, but acceleration tends to be sluggish. A base-engine Sentra seems overmatched when traversing hilly terrain or carrying several passengers. Programmed virtual gear ratios in the CVT can simulate a conventional automatic transmission, but the engine grows quite loud when accelerating hard or tackling an upgrade.

Compared to a Mazda 3 or Ford Focus, even the Sentra SR Turbo trails in driving enjoyment. Performance clearly reaches past that of the base engine, but the Turbo won’t remind anyone of Nissan’s old SE-R models. The 6-speed gearbox for the SR Turbo is loose and notchy, lacking in precision.

All Sentra drivers can select from three modes: Normal, Eco, or Sport. Unfortunately, the selection buttons aren’t easily seen, but they affect throttle response as well as transmission operation.

Handling has never been Sentra’s strong point. While the sedan is competent enough and corners capably, thanks to its brake-controlled steering assistance, it doesn’t inspire spirited driving. Steering, on the other hand, is well-weighted and confidence-inspiring.

Ride comfort is sufficiently smooth and relatively soft. The suspension absorbs bumps and pavement roughness effectively. During highway cruising, the cabin is serenely quiet.

Only SR and SL models can have all-disc brakes, but the rear-drum system halts sufficiently well. Expect some nosedive and excess body motion when halting hard in a Sentra.

Fuel economy ranks as respectable, EPA-rated at 29/37 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined. The SR Turbo is EPA-rated at 27/33 mpg City/Highway, or 29 mpg Combined, with CVT; but 26/32/28 mpg with manual shift.

Walk Around

Taller and narrower than typical of compact bodies, Sentras lack the visual spirit of a Honda Civic or Mazda 3. Overall, the Sentra conveys the relatively plain image of an econocar.

Up front, the deep V-shaped grille is flanked by boomerang-shaped headlights. SR models express a modestly sportier theme, making them stand out a bit from the compact crowd.

Interior Overview

Roomy and welcoming, the tall-roofed Sentra would have been considered midsize not so long ago. Though seat comfort ranks around average, four passengers can expect ample space for heads and legs. Even with a sunroof, head clearance for six-foot riders isn’t a likely concern.

Up front, the driver and passenger sit somewhat higher than usual. Back-seat passengers get plenty of legroom, with sufficient space for two average-size adults or a trio of pre-teen youngsters. Getting into the back seat is easy, too, through doors that open wide onto broad openings. At highway speeds, the cabin is agreeably quiet.

With cargo volume of 15.1 cubic feet, the Sentra provides one of the largest trunks in the compact class. Split rear seats fold down to increase storage capabilities and include a folding center armrest.

Although the cabin won’t be called fashionable, it’s traditional in nature, led by an upright dashboard with logical controls. Curving gently, the two-tier dashboard tapers at the sides, boosting available space. Standard cloth upholstery is a better choice than optional leather, which has a plastic-like feel.

Summary

Shoppers are more likely to turn to Sentra because they need a capable compact, rather than because they crave this particular one. After all, family-minded buyers aren’t ordinarily seeking stimulating performance and high-end handling traits. Lower-level Sentras are better values.
