Comfortable seats
Tasteful, high-quality interior
Plug-in Energi option
Up-to-date active safety

Cons
Six years old, few changes
Uncompetitive EPA ratings

Steering is slow

The Ford Fusion Hybrid is unchanged for 2018.

PROS
Excellent Sync 3 infotainment system
Rear seats can fold down to increase cargo space
Platinum trim's interior quality surpasses that of some luxury cars
Interior remains quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Lurches forward unpleasantly when the gas engine kicks on
Sleek roofline reduces rear visibility and headroom
Fuel economy figures aren't as high as rival hybrid sedans

The 2018 Nissan Sentra is a compact car that does what it says on the package: it’s roomy, quiet, and relatively affordable.

Pros
Standard automatic emergency braking
Decent fuel efficiency
Competitive standard features
Roomy rear seat

Cons
Turbo models aren’t as much fun as we hoped
Wandering 6-speed manual
Leisurely acceleration in most models
Top-end trims are too much

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, Nissan has made minor adjustments to the Sentra's feature availability. Automatic emergency braking for imminent collisions is now standard on most Sentra trim levels.

PROS
Spacious backseat and trunk for the class
Priced lower than many rivals
User-friendly control layout

CONS
Less engaging driving experience than many competitors
Seats aren't particularly suitable for taller drivers
Slow acceleration on most models

By: 
edmunds.com

An entertaining powertrain does not always result in an entertaining car. Case in point: the 2018 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo. In spite of its quite good forced-induction inline-four, this Sentra isn’t quite a competitive sport compact.

Pros
Agreeable engine,
lots of rear legroom,
comfortable ride.

Cons
Awkward seating position,
uncomfortable seats,
not as engaging as a sporty model should be.
