Nissan Sentra

Price $19,198 – $26,598
Fuel consumption 6.0 – 9.4 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 75%(view ratings)
Completely redesigned for 2020, the Nissan Sentra understandably returns for 2021 with no major changes—unless you consider the addition of a six-speed manual transmission in SR trim to be big news. Every other model uses a continuously variable transmission. As for the engine, we’re dealing with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder that produces 149 horsepower. The Sentra’s looks are pretty sharp, while protection for all occupants comes from Nissan’s Safety Shield 360.
