The Car Guide rating 75%(view ratings)
The Sentra sedan was initially designed for those in the market for a fuel-efficient, spacious car with predictable handling. It’s a compact, but since its dimensions are more generous than the category average, the Sentra appeals to families. Its 1.8L 130-hp four-cylinder engine is paired with a CVT automatic gearbox. Nissan has favoured this type of transmission for years.
