Now that the 2015 Nissan Sentra passes muster in terms of occupant protection in a collision, having earned a “Top Safety Pick” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) this year, it makes my recommended list of small cars. You see, this isn’t really a small car even if it is priced like one, so in addition to safety, the Sentra’s game includes practicality and value.
Recognizing this, I asked for a Sentra when renting a car during a summer visit to the East Coast. I knew it would be safe for my family. I knew it had comfortable front seats and a huge back seat. I knew it could easily swallow our luggage in its enormous trunk. I knew it would get amazing gas mileage.
