Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Nissan Sentra is a compact sedan that handles the basics and little more.

Pros
Active safety tech on most
Decent fuel economy
Apple and Android capability
Spacious rear seat

Cons
Turbos aren’t much fun
Vague 6-speed manual
Droning CVT
Leisurely acceleration in most models
Top-end trims are costly

The 2019 Nissan Sentra doesn't attract much attention. It's not as popular in terms of sales as other top small sedans, and it's fair to say that its styling isn't as memorable. But depending on your needs, it could still be worth a look.

Pros
Spacious back seat and trunk for the class
Priced lower than many rivals
User-friendly control layout

Cons
Slow acceleration on most models
Lacks the latest in infotainment design and safety features
The seats aren't particularly suitable for taller drivers
Less engaging driving experience than many competitors

New-car buyers seeking the comforts of a factory warranty can be limited in budget picks. The 2018 Kia Rio does many little things right for not a lot of cash.

Pros
Quieter cabin
Composed ride compared to outgoing model
Cleaner lines, especially on hatchback

Cons
Pricey for its class
Base version isn’t well-equipped
Tapped and sapped at highway speeds
Conservative style
