Nissan Sentra Overview

The Nissan Sentra has been vying for the wallets of economy-car shoppers since 1982. For most of that time, the Sentra has lagged a little behind the segment leaders in terms of overall refinement and image. Still, there have been periods where this car has been one of the best choices available. Nowadays, the Nissan Sentra is facing a much tougher battle than when it debuted, especially as many automakers are now offering specialized performance models that compete directly with the SE-R. Still something of a dark horse in the market, the Sentra with all nissan sentra accessories nonetheless remains a solid choice thanks to its performance variants, high fuel efficiency and low upkeep costs. One downside to the Nissan Sentra is the CVT's lack of versatility.
