Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra and the Honda Civic showcase impressive performance that combines power, smooth handling, and above-the-bar fuel efficiency.

Poised and Efficient Performance

The performance of these sedans is fairly on par with one another. However, there are several key areas in which the Sentra outshines the Civic. To start, its 2.0L 4-cylinder engine churns out 146 lb-ft of torque, while the Civic engine of the same makeup produces just 138 lb-ft of torque.

Now, you can look forward to top-of-the-line efficiency from both of these vehicles. For example, the Sentra offers an EPA-estimated 29 city/39 highway MPG on its standard models.1 The Civic produces an equally impressive fuel economy.

As much as performance is important to you, it may not be the first thing you notice in a vehicle.

A Classic Cabin

For plenty of drivers out there, the comfort and the amenities of the interior mean just as much as what’s under the hood.

In that department, the Nissan Sentra and the Honda Civic are remarkably similar. Both offer standard sedan dimensions, with just over 14 cubic feet of trunk space to help you store everything from grocery bags to golf clubs.

When you take your seat, each sedan has you covered. Both offer available power-adjustable seating that's outfitted with available heat settings as well. You’ll also enjoy available leather appointments in each.

Modern Tech

In terms of interior technology, the similarities continue. The 2022 Sentra and the 2022 Civic offer:

  • Standard 7-inch touchscreen displays
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration
  • Voice Recognition
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • Bluetooth® technology

Both sedans also feature built-in Wi-Fi® hotspots to help keep you connected along the way.

Nissan Sentra

Last but not least, the Nissan Sentra and the Honda Civic provide comprehensive safety systems alongside suites of driver-assistance technology.

Keeping an Eye on Your Every Side

The Honda Sensing® suite is certainly impressive. However, it doesn’t quite compare to what the Safety Shield® 360 suite has to offer in the Sentra.

With this comes systems, like:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • High Beam Assist

That just scratches the surface of what the Nissan Sentra safety suite offers. It also features an available Intelligent Around View Monitor, providing a 360° bird’s-eye view of your Sentra and its surroundings. Unfortunately, the Civic offers just a standard rearview camera.

So, What’s the Verdict?
Nissan Sentra

Now that you know a bit more about the Nissan Sentra and the Honda Civic, it’s up to you to decide which sedan is right for you. At Georgesville Nissan, we believe the advanced performance, the state-of-the-art technology, and the wealth of amenities make the Nissan Sentra the clear winner.
