The Honda Civic has been a popular compact car for generations. It made a name for itself as a small car that avoids feeling cheap and cruddy, and the all-new 2022 version is the fanciest Civic yet. But with a starting price of $22,350, it’s also the most expensive Civic yet.
By contrast, the 2022 Nissan Sentra starts at just $19,610. It also has sportier styling than the Civic and some more lavish interior details. For this review, we’ve tested both the Civic and the Sentra so we can discuss how these two small cars compare in each of eight categories. Keep reading to learn our overall winner and see which one sounds like the better choice for you.
