The Nissan Sentra has been vying for the wallets of economy-car shoppers since 1982. For most of that time, the Sentra’s overall refinement and image have trailed the segment leaders. There have been periods, however, when this car has been one of the best choices available.
That applies to the current Nissan Sentra, which benefits from a redesign that provides greater space, a higher-quality cabin and improved fuel economy. While it may lack the visual pizzazz and driver involvement of its competitors, today’s Sentra is definitely a compelling choice. As a used model, the Sentra is less desirable but its high fuel efficiency and low upkeep costs could make it worth a look.
