Pros: Roomy and comfortable
Cons: Tacky beige fabric, some options are pricey
Advice: You can get similar interior space and performance from Nissan VersaThe 2007 Sentra is much more attractive, comfortable and roomy than the repulsive earlier versions. The CVT transmission, Bluetooth, Intelligent Key and leather are nice touches that are very rare in a car of this class. It has decent handling and acceleration, but doesn't seem as agile as the Civic because of it's higher weight. Back seat is roomy, good headroom. Trunk is very large, has a divider that makes a hidden compartment. 2.0L engine has more torque than competitors, but same 140hp as 1.8L Civic, which probably has slightly higher efficiency. Overall, this car would be a more contemporary, luxurious alternative to Civic, which has a sportier inside/outside appearance and slightly better handling.
Cons: gas milage
Advice: drive it check milageseems slugish between 20 & 40 mph. the gas milage not good sticker 29-36 ,,, mine gets 24-28 NOT GOOD !!!!
