Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Striking exterior design
Lots of standard kit and space
Very low PCP monthly payments
Plenty of personalisation
Good to drive

Cons
Plain interior design
Ride just okay on rough roads
Boot smaller than some rivals
Entry-level 95hp petrol a little underpowered
No Cupra planned (yet)

The five-door All-New Arona, a front-wheel-drive only SUV, is well placed in this highly popular sector of the car market.It’s available with a choice of six engines, with both the diesel and petrol variants offered in either 95PS or 115 PS form, and the sporty FR 1.5 TSI EVO leaping up to 150 PS.

Pros
Very smart looking inside and out
Good choice of engines
Well equipped and overall good value

Cons
No SatNav on basic model

By: 
drive.co.uk

The Seat Arona is quite possibly the best compact SUV of the moment. Good practicality, economy and solid driving manners are all Arona staples.It lacks the visual creativity of a Hyundai Kona or the customisation of a Citroen C3 Aircross, but its real-world strengths far outweigh having orange door mirrors. It’s a level-headed car for level-headed people.

Pros
Refined 1.0-litre petrol
Ergonomic infotainment system
Good ride

Cons
Humdrum looks
Narrow middle seat
Trim levels that dictate engine choice

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.
