2015 Nissan Sentra Buyer's Guide

The 2015 Nissan Sentra is a five-seat compact sedan that has been a mainstay in Nissan's lineup for quite some time, occupying the space between the smaller Versa and the larger Altima and Maxima. Though some of Nissan's model family is taking a turn toward edgier and more aggressive designs, the sedan lineup has so far stayed pretty conservative, with the Sentra holding strong to its share of the market. The 2015 Sentra represents an effort by Nissan to provide low-cost, reliable daily drivers, though they're not prioritizing an enjoyable driving experience for this segment of the market. The current Sentra was last redesigned in 2013, and sales have been steady, due to the car's inoffensive looks, low cost of entry and decent fuel economy.

What makes it move?

Powering the 2015 Nissan Sentra is a single engine: a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that offers one of the lowest outputs in the segment. The Sentra puts 130 horsepower and 128 kb-ft of torque to the front wheels, enough to adequately move the car, but it may struggle under heavy load. Gearbox choices are a standard six-speed manual or optional continuously variable transmission that's been noted for its responsiveness. On the upside, this drivetrain provides solid fuel economy of 29 mpg city, 39 mpg highway.

Why buy the 2015 Nissan Sentra?

The 2015 Nissan Sentra is designed to provide the most basic of transportation needs, in a package larger than a subcompact. The Nissan Sentra prioritizes cost of entry and fuel efficiency over driving enjoyment, making it a good choice for the type of commuter who just wants to get from point A to point B. That said, Nissan offers the 2015 Sentra with five thoughtfully designed trim levels: S, FE+S (which is optimized for fuel economy), SV, SR, and SL. Even the base Sentra is tastefully upholstered, making cabin comfort one of the car's strongest attributes, and buyers who have a little more cash to spend on a compact sedan can pick a trim level with the most appealing combination of features and equipment.
