2015 Nissan Sentra vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Before Driving a 2015 Nissan Sentra in Central Illinois…

Central Illinois drivers searching for small cars likely already know of the 2015 Nissan Sentra. Nissan’s reputation has improved quite a bit in recent years, and the Sentra an okay choice for a small car if you’re willing to upgrade to another more efficient engine or a higher trim. The entry-level Sentra S feels as though it came from years ago. Nissan’s standard features are limited to power accessories, air conditioning, automatic headlights, and Bluetooth connectivity (for phone only). As far as fuel economy is concerned, higher trim levels have a more efficient transmission, though the regular Sentra only rates 36 highway and 27 city mpg.

The 2015 Honda Civic with CVT has taken home an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 30 city mpg,* making it one of the most efficient vehicles in Central Illinois. The 2015 Civic Sedan was also granted a 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award* due to its performance, value, and dependability.* Though the Nissan Sentra comes up short on features, Honda’s Civic is one of the best-equipped cars in its class thanks to the standard Bluetooth HandsFreeLink (phone and audio), Honda i-MID infotainment system, a rearview camera, SMS texting, and Pandora internet radio. These amenities can be found on every 2015 Civic without requiring any upgrades at all. Honda is redefining the idea of “standard features” and you get to benefit.
