Behold Its Roomy and Refined Interior
Boasting more rear legroom than some midsize sedans and similarly impressive interior design and materials, the Nissan Sentra is one of the grown-ups in the compact car segment. There are sportier and more boldly styled alternatives in its price range, but the accommodating, efficient and tech-savvy Sentra delivers an excellent mix of the characteristics most buyers care about in the real world.
From our 2015 Nissan Sentra full review: "No one expects the 2015 Nissan Sentra compact sedan to light a fire under the enthusiast driver's seat, but as daily commuter we think the Sentra does an excellent job of combining good handling with a comfortable ride."
Nissan has made a number of Sentra refinements for 2015. Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, steering wheel controls and cruise control now come standard. The SV gets Intelligent Key and a rearview camera, plus a Style Package is now available. The SR gets standard heated front seats, and rear disc brakes are standard on the SR and SL.
Build and Price
The 2015 Nissan Sentra starts a bit over $17,000 and tops out closer to $25,000 with an impressive list of features. The Sentra is available in five trim levels -- the basic S (with 6-speed manual transmission or CVT), FE+S, SV, SR and top-of-the-line SL.

KBB.com visitor JMC has this to say about the Sentra: "Great gas mileage, great sound system, good around town and very reliable. Uncomfortable drivers seat, no storage inside. Armrest is unusable, didn't pay it much attention on the test drive." Read more Nissan Sentra consumer reviews.
