2015 Nissan Sentra vs. 2015 Honda Civic

You Should Read This if You’re Thinking of Buying a 2015 Nissan Sentra Around Central Missouri…

Mid-Missouri drivers shopping for that next compact car likely already know about the 2015 Nissan Sentra, but have you heard that Nissan’s reputation has recently been climbing, putting them into a healthy competition with some of the better compact car automakers? The Sentra is a decent choice for a compact car if you’re willing to upgrade for a more efficient engine or high-tech features, but the Sentra S looks like a basic model from years back. Standard features are limited to power accessories, air conditioning, and automatic headlights with Bluetooth phone connectivity serving as the only real modern amenity. Fuel economy on the Sentra isn’t bad, with 36 highway and 27 city mpg.

The 2015 Honda Civic with a CVT manages an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 30 city mpg,* and that’s just the first thing that makes it more appealing to Mid-Missouri drivers than the Sentra. The Civic Sedan was granted a 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award* thanks to its dependability, value, and performance, and the features of the Civic in particular put it in a different league than the Sentra. The Honda i-MID infotainment system, rearview camera, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, SMS texting, Pandora radio, and more help the Civic redefine the “standard” in “standard features.” Putting the Sentra on the same level as the Civic would require multiple upgrades, while the Civic comes with a range of modern features that drivers have come to expect.
