What You Will Like

The compact Nissan Sentra competes with heavy hitters such as the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, VW Golf and Ford Focus. With so much competition in the segment, the Sentra stands out with its maturity and upscale feel. As is increasingly becoming trendy, the Sentra can be optioned up to near luxury-car levels of technology and features, but with a base price of under $17,000, it still manages to be affordable enough for most buyers.

Introduction

The Nissan Sentra compact sedan is admirably roomy for four and gets good fuel efficiency. Conservatively upright in profile and traditional in style, the 2018 Sentra is largely unchanged over last year.

Automatic emergency braking is available for the 2018 model year; only models with manual shift, and the NISMO editions, do without the new system.

A rearview camera and 5.0-inch display screen, with Bluetooth streaming audio, come standard on all 2018 models. 2018 Sentra SV sedans get 16-inch alloy wheels and dual-zone automatic temperature control. Adaptive cruise control is standard on 2018 Sentra SR 1.8L and SL trim levels. 2018 Sentra SL sedans include a moonroof and Bose audio. A new Midnight Edition package is available for S and SR trim levels, featuring blacked-out body accents and 17-inch wheels.

Last redesigned for 2013, the Sentra was mildly facelifted three years later.

Six trim levels are offered: S, SV, SR, SL, SR Turbo, and NISMO. Most 2018 Sentras get a 1.8-liter four-cylinder, rated at 124 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard on the S model, but others come only with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that contains no gears but behaves like an automatic. With manual shift, the base engine produces 130 horsepower.

In SR Turbo and NISMO models, a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, borrowed from Nissan’s Juke, makes 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard for the SR Turbo, but its optional CVT includes stepped, simulated gears.

Newly standard automatic emergency braking on most models helps elevate the Sentra against such rivals as the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, but safety scores could be better. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Sentra Good crash-test ratings, but the small-overlap test for the passenger side was not rated. Headlights are deemed Poor, though the 2017 Sentra was named a Top Safety Pick.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the regular-engine 2018 Sentra a four-star score overall, and for frontal impact. Non-turbo models earned a five-star rating for side impact.

Blind-spot monitoring is available on SR versions, and standard on the SL.

Lineup

Sentra S ($16,990) has the 1.8-liter engine, cloth upholstery, a 5.0-inch display, Bluetooth, four-speaker audio, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, and 16-inch wheels with covers. It’s available with the CVT ($18,140). (Prices are MSRP and do not include $885 destination charge.)

Sentra SV ($18,960) gets the CVT, plus a leather-wrapped steering wheel, upgraded cloth upholstery, six-speaker audio, keyless ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Sentra SR ($20,370) adds sport cloth seats, LED headlights, foglamps, adaptive cruise control, sporty interior accents, and 17-inch wheels. It comes with the 1.8-liter engine and CVT.

Sentra SL ($23,440) has the CVT, along with leather upholstery, a moonroof, Bose audio, 5.8-inch touchscreen, Nissan telematics, blind-spot monitoring, and unique 17-inch wheels.

Sentra SR Turbo substitutes a more powerful 1.6-turbocharged engine and comes with CVT ($22,490).

NISMO ($25,790) comes with a turbocharged engine, 18-inch wheels, sporty details inside and outside, and deeper front bucket seats. It’s available with manual or CVT.

Walkaround

Compared to other Nissan models, the compact Sentra looks welcoming. Next to competitors from other automakers, it’s less appealing. With its relatively tall, almost boxy profile, the Sentra lags behind modern rivals from the likes of Honda and Mazda.

Sentra sheetmetal shows a clear kinship to the bigger Altima, include rather deep creases and a body line that stretches from nose to tail. Turbocharged Sentras feature a number of visual extras, including LED daytime running lights, side sills, and a spoiler.

Interior

Not unlike its body, the Sentra’s interior comes across as upright and utilitarian, built on a budget-focused foundation. What Nissan’s compact offers, beyond its competitors, is greater cabin space, especially in the back.

Front-seat occupants sit higher than is typical in the compact category, which is a bonus for outward visibility. The tall roofline provides good headroom in front and rear, even with a moonroof. Leather upholstery isn’t the best choice in upper trim levels, because the material is thin.

Rear-seat passengers get 37.4 inches of legroom and a generous 50.9 inches of hip space. Both figures beat those of most rivals. Wide-opening rear doors make it easy to enter and exit. Either two adults or three teenagers can feel comfortable, stretching out a bit in back.

The gently-curved dashboard flows across the front compartment in a two-tier layout. Tapering at the sides makes maximum use of the available space.

The sizable trunk holds 15.1 cubic feet of luggage. Loading is eased by a wide opening.

Sentras are quiet at highway cruising speeds, thanks largely to acoustic glass. When accelerating strongly, however, some unwanted noise oozes into the cabin.

Driving Impressions

Sentras handle better than some might expect. The 1.8-liter models with the base suspension have relatively stiff springs, ensuring more controlled body motions. In SR Turbo and NISMO editions, springs are stiffer yet, while remapped steering promises a greater sense of heft.

Whether it has base 16-inch tires or upgraded 17-inch rubber, a Sentra rides fairly softly, without excessive body roll. Rear drum brakes on S and SV versions feel confident, but permit perceptible nosedive.

While undeniably competent in daily commuter-style driving, performance of regular-engine Sentras is on the leisurely side. Even in SR Turbo and NISMO form, the Sentra appears to embrace comfort over vigorous acceleration. They’re more gratifying than non-turbo models, to be sure; but the performance boost isn’t dramatic, considering the difference in horsepower.

Base Sentras come with a 6-speed manual gearbox, which feels too loose to make it fun to manipulate. Nissan’s CVT is more satisfying, though highway passing and steep climbs in mountainous terrain may demand some planning and patience.

Non-turbo Sentras score well in fuel economy, though some competitors are even more thrifty. With the 1.8-liter engine and CVT, the 2018 Altima is EPA-rated at 29/37 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined. Manual shift drops those figures by 2 mpg in each category.

Sentra SR Turbos with CVT are EPA-rated at 27/33 mpg City/Highway, or 29 mpg Combined. Turbos with manual lose 1 mpg on each estimate. NISMO models are rated 25/30/27 mpg with CVT; but the highway figure rises by 1 mpg with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Turbos require premium gasoline.

Summary

All told, the compact Sentra performs as promised. Roomy and quiet, it’s a relatively affordable choice. Average in capability, it’s the type of car driven by millions each day. Best values are the lower-cost versions. Even the base Sentra is comparatively well-equipped for its price.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
