Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The base 1.8-liter engine making 124 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque is competent in a daily short commute, with moderate acceleration and a CVT that keeps the engine busy. Highway passing and steep climbs require planning and patience. There is an optional 6-speed manual transmission for more precise control over the power.

The SR Turbo and Nismo models use a turbocharged 188-horsepower engine that’s more satisfying than the base engine, but the difference is undramatic, considering there is 50 percent more horsepower. The turbo Sentras simply scoot with more authority.

The ride in the non-turbo models is fairly soft, comfortable on either 16-inch or 17-inch wheels. However on twisty roads, the Sentra offers plain and predictable behavior. It doesn’t have much lean in corners, but the steering isn’t as precise as it could be.

The SR Turbo and Nismo models have stiffer springs, sharper steering, and heavier steering, so they handle with more tenacity.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Compared to some other Nissan models, the compact Sentra looks welcoming, if for no other reason than its lines are in no way polarizing–there’s nothing to not like. With its relatively tall and almost boxy profile, the Sentra is a few years behind sleeker rivals like Honda and Mazda.

The Sentra shows a clear kinship to the bigger Altima, include rather deep creases and a body line that stretches from nose to tail. Turbocharged Sentras feature a number of visual extras, including LED daytime running lights, side sills, and a spoiler. The Nismo with its tweaks looks best of all, in our opinion.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

The Sentra’s cabin comes across as upright and utilitarian. We say upright because the seating position in front is relatively high. The cabin feels basic, but not unattractive. The simple dashboard flows in a gentle horizontal curve, in two tiers, tapered at the side. Outward vision is good, with a big windshield thanks to a tall roofline.

Where the Sentra betters its rivals is interior room, especially in the back. That tall roofline provides good headroom in front, even with the higher seating position, as well as a moonroof that doesn’t skim the heads of tall people in the rear. Passengers there get 37.4 inches of legroom and a generous 50.9 inches of hip space. Two full-sized adults, with a smaller person in the middle, can find comfort. The rear doors open wide, making entry and exit easier.

The trunk is also big for a compact, with 15.1 cubic feet of space, and the opening is wide, making loading luggage and things easier.

The cabin is quiet at highway speeds, thanks largely to acoustic glass. However under hard acceleration it does get a bit noisy with the base engine, as it works so hard.


New Car Test Drive

The 2019 Nissan Sentra has its virtues, namely a roomy cabin and excellent fuel mileage. Rivals at Honda and Mazda give more driving thrills, but the Sentra’s long on value and low on price.

Model Lineup

New Car Test Drive

The Nissan Sentra comes in six models: S, SV, SR, SL, SR Turbo, and Nismo, ranging in price from about $18,700 to more than $27,000 for a Nismo with the CVT.

The base Sentra S includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Bluetooth, automatic headlights, four-speaker sound system, and a rearview camera.

The SV trim features better cloth upholstery, keyless ignition, leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, 16-inch alloys, a six-speaker audio system, and an updated 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

A Special Edition package upgrades the wheels and adds rear disc brakes, along with blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alerts, and adaptive cruise control.

SR adds leather upholstery, power driver’s seat and adaptive cruise control, while SL adds a moonroof, Bose audio and blind-spot monitors.

A Midnight Edition package is available for S and SR models, featuring blacked-out body accents and 17-inch wheels.

The SR Turbo brings the more powerful turbocharged engine with the CVT, while the Nismo adds 18-inch wheels, sporty details inside and outside, and deeper front bucket seats. It’s available with a 6-speed manual or the CVT.
