Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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.

The 2018 Audi A3 ranked #13 in Luxury Small Cars. Currently the Audi A3 has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 36 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lively acceleration, especially with upgraded engines
Dynamic handling balanced with a smooth ride
High-tech infotainment system and available virtual cockpit
Spacious front seats

Cons
Small back seat
Limited cargo space in all-wheel-drive, hybrid, and convertible models

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Audi A3 is a well-equipped entry-level luxury sedan with style, performance, and content that make it a logical stepping stone for Volkswagen Golf and GTI buyers.

Pros
Audi Virtual Cockpit
Well-equipped for $40,000
Standard automatic emergency braking
Potent 2.0-liter turbo
Available in three body styles

Cons
Tiny backseat/trunk
Best safety equipment limited to Prestige
Cute looks may limit appeal

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the A3 receives only minor changes to equipment availability. Two USB ports and heated front seats are now standard on all A3s, and blind-spot monitoring is standard on the Premium Plus trim levels.

PROS
Good balance of a comfortable ride and sporty handling
Strong acceleration from the turbocharged engine
Refined and stylish cabin

CONS
Limited backseat space
Small trunk, especially with all-wheel drive
