Other Cars to Consider Besides the Nissan Sentra

Do you own a Nissan Sentra or know someone who does? The Sentra debuted more than 30 years ago and has enjoyed much success in the U.S. market. It has several attractive qualities that contribute to a loyal following, but when the compact car is sized up against the competition, will loyalty last?

The Sentra has an incredibly spacious interior that could qualify it as a midsize sedan. It also has a large trunk, great fuel economy, and very good safety scores. In fact, the 2017 Sentra earns the highest score of Good from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and was named a Top Safety Pick.

Despite the accolades, the Sentra gets lost in a crowded compact car class, landing near the bottom of the U.S. News rankings. Many others fare better, like the Chevrolet Cruze, which has more standard technology features, or the Mazda3, which has more power yet maintains good fuel economy.

The Toyota Corolla is unmatched in its standard suite of active safety features, while the Kia Soul has a premium interior and class-leading cargo space. Consider upgrading to an official midsize car like the Hyundai Sonata, which includes a fantastic warranty, or stay true-blue to the brand with the Nissan Altima and enjoy a safe, reliable car with an ultra-comfortable interior.

If you are ready to rethink another Sentra, here are 10 alternatives to consider.
