Nissan Sentra 2017

2017 Nissan Sentra Expert Rundown Review

Looking for a roomy and fuel-efficient compact? The 2017 Nissan Sentra might be worth checking out. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.


TRAVIS LANGNESS: I'm Edmunds editor Travis Langness. And this is an Expert Rundown of the 2017 Nissan Sentra. For 2017, the Nissan Sentra gets an all-new 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. And it's really a welcome addition. The base 1.8-liter engine is one of the slowest in the class. And the CVT transmission, the automatic transmission that it comes with, drones on pretty badly when you step on the accelerator. So we're happy to see that it's got a new, more powerful motor. One of the great things about the Sentra is that it's priced lower than most of its rivals. If you're looking for a bargain compact car, this is probably a good one to look at. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a lot of good equipment. Base trim levels don't even come with Bluetooth streaming audio. So if you want more equipment, go for one of the mid-level trims. In the back seat, there's lots of room in the Sentra. The trunk is also one of the largest in the class, with over 15 cubic feet of space. And the Sentra's pretty comfortable on the highway. It has good seats and it'll last well on a road trip. Some of the problems with the Sentra include the slow, droning bass engine and the CVT as well as inferior materials quality on the inside. Basically, it just feels nicer in cars like the Mazda 3 and the Honda Civic. Bottom line. The Sentra's a good bargain and it provides good space. But we'd recommend looking at some of the other class leaders before you make a decision. For more reviews of key competitors, go to YouTube and check out more of the Edmunds Expert Rundowns.
