2021 Nissan Sentra Review: By VIP Leasing
The 2021 Nissan Sentra is the latest model of compact sedans to be released by Nissan. Priced lower than many of its rivals, the Sentra certainly seems enticing. The 2021 model joins the lineage of Sentra’s which are generally known as both a dependable and affordable vehicle and in this review we will dissect whether the 2021 model carries on this legacy. Considering it’s relatively low prices, Nissan Sentra lease deals and incentives are definitely best in class.
For those who are looking to buy a flashy car which will be head turner, the Sentra is not the right car. With a rather unremarkable style, this car is better for those who wish to blend in with the crowds rather than stand out. The 2021 model provides the traditional look of a compact sedan and while the exterior style may not be something to laud, there is certainly nothing wrong with it. While the traditional design may not have much flair, the three box design of the sedan provides a roomier interior which to many may be more important than a glamorous visual design. Because of this, the automobile rises above many of its competitors in terms of comfort because of the larger amount of space in the interior cabin. Rear seat passengers can recline in the spacious back row with the thirty seven inches of legroom that the car provides. The rear seats can comfortably accommodate two regular sized adults or three children or even teenagers. The front seats are mounted slightly higher than most cars which provides very good outward vision for drivers but decreases the headroom which may be slightly less comfortable for taller drivers. The Sentra also provides a spacious amount of storage space for a compact sedan offering over fifteen feet of cubic space in the trunk along with a big door enabling easy access to the trunk. Buyers have the option of either cloth or leather for the interior seating material so you may want to review your options in deciding which is more worth its value.
Following the dismal trends of both the styling of the exterior and interior, the performance of the 2021 Nissan Sentra is average, fitting in with the themes of mediocrity for this car. The standard version comes with a 1.8 liter inline-4 engine which provides one hundred and twenty four horsepower and one hundred twenty five pound-feet of torque. This is generally paired with a six speed manual. Buyers have the option of upgrading the engine to a 1.6 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that comes with the SR Turbo and Nismo models. This engine provides one hundred and eighty eight horsepower and one hundred and seventy seven pound-feet of torque. The SR Turbo and Nismo models also come with more powerful power-trains which may be enticing to some. Performance is an area where the Sentra may lag behind its competitors. One area where the Sentra is lacking is the dismal acceleration rates of the car. The handling of the car also is slightly sloppier than other cars in its class but the relative comfort of the car may make up for that. The fuel economy of the car is relatively good with twenty seven miles per gallon in the city and thirty seven miles per gallon on the highway which is good for the class of car. While for the driving connoisseur the Sentra may disappoint, for the average commuter the car should do its job just fine.
One area where the Sentra is above average is in the safety category which is one of the most important features of any car. This automobile received good all around safety scores by the insurance institute of highway safety and it is one of their top safety picks. The car comes standard with many important safety features including a rear-view camera, anti lock brakes, and six airbags. Other features like auto-emergency braking, blind spot monitors, lane control, and adaptive cruise control do not come standard but they do come with the upper echelon models of the Sentra. The Sentra also offers automatic transmission models which come with automatic emergency braking and this may interest many buyers. The standard headlights that the Sentra come with are sub-par but they can easily be upgraded in a different model or even on the standard model. Drivers will have an expanded field of vision in the 2020 Nissan Sentra with the bigger windshields of the car. Safety is one category where the Sentra shakes the theme of mediocrity and excels.
The Sentra comes in over six models ranging from the S all the way to the SL. The The S class is the entry level model and the cheapest coming out to around eighteen thousand dollars. This model comes with all of the standard technology of the class including a seven inch infotainment screen, a Bluetooth and usb ports, and a four speaker system. The SV class is the next model which comes out to around nineteen thousand dollars adds two additional usb ports, an upgraded six speaker system. It also includes a push button start for the engine and satellite radio. The SR model starting at around 20,000$ is a big upgrade coming with adaptive cruise control, premium upholstery, an even more upgraded bose speaker system, a moonroof, blind spot monitoring and more. The Nissan SR turbo and all models above come with a 188 horsepower engine along with all of the upgrades of the previous model and more. The Nismo model is most centered towards driving with buyers being able to choose between a six speed manual transmission or a cvt, also coming with unique Nissan Nismo pieces. This model comes out to around 25,000$. The top of the line Sentra SL which starts at 23,000 dollars comes with leather upholster, heated seats and more. The Sentra provides enough options so each customer can find something for them.
While it may not win any awards, the Nissan Sentra is an affordable functional car that performs adequately for the casual driver. Those who are looking for an exciting and fun car to drive should definitely look somewhere else but for the standard car shopper who just needs a functional ride, the Sentra should definitely be given a second look.
