If a roomy, comfortable interior and lots of low-priced, high-end features mean more to you than a flashy exterior and go-kartlike handling, the 2012 Nissan Sentra sedan is a great choice. Its Xtronic
If you are seeking a flashy exterior and go-kartlike handling, not to mention a more powerful engine and a manual transmission on the top-of-the-line trim, the Mazda Mazda3, Honda Civic or VW Golf is
Because most people don't dart in and out of traffic or attack S-curves with Formula1-like zeal, the 2012 Nissan Sentra sedan has been infused with the appropriate balance between capable handling characteristics and a smooth, quiet ride.

"After three successive Honda's; the Company knifed me in the back with it's cheap, 2011 Civic. An excuse I heard from a Dealer: Honda had big plans for the Civic; but Crash of 2008; and the Recession that followed; caused, the Company to, "cheapen up." Bought a Nissan Sentra S, in 2011. Put 45000 miles on it before passing it down to a Family Member. Surprisingly, that Car far exceeded my expectations. Nary a problem with anything! Still has original tires on it; and Tread Wear that should last through the Summer. Smooth, and fun little car to drive. Very Reliable, and inexpensive to own. Extremely easy to get in and out of; for Old Dudes. Minuses: Probably it's traditional styling; it's cheap cloth interior on the door panels; and the lack of temperature and mileage indicators. Loved that little Car. On one long road trip: the thing averaged 36.2 MPG. For $17,000 Bucks, I'll take that any time."
