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. The Sentra’s CVT transmission is one of the best in the industry, and with so many other competitors moving to this more efficient form of selecting gears, the once awkward feeling of driving a CVT now seems commonplace. The Sentra’s electric power steering is nicely weighted and, although not as interactive as the system in the Mazda3, we think it’s better than the setup in the Hyundai Elantra and
Kia Forte. The 130 horsepower offered up by the Sentra’s 1.8-liter engine isn’t going to win any races, but it’s enough to keep up with the
Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus in both acceleration and fuel economy.
