Interior: 2013 Nissan Sentra
Just as the outside has been upgraded with a premium feel, the interior gets the same attention to detail. Available trim is either a maple wood-look plastic or a simple silver, yet we say go with the silver because the plastic wood looks more faux sheen than mother nature's handy work. Still, other areas actually do lend the 2013 Sentra the class-above sense that Nissan is attempting to hit upon here.
Behind the steering wheel sit a set of brilliantly bright white gauges, which are an easy read both night and day. Additionally, the material on the instrument cluster is soft, and the overall fit and finish of the Sentra is improved compared to the version the new car replaces.
All of the upgraded sense of style and refinement is easily enjoyed because the cabin space is comfortably sized, especially for a compact sedan. In fact, even rear seat passengers will be comfortable because of the class-leading legroom afforded to those relegated to the back seats.
