  • Safety

Civic vs. Sentra: Performance

It’s hard to think of another compact sedan that boasts a reputation for exhilarating performance rivalling that of the Honda Civic. It’s a reputation that continues to attract those who don’t think driving a compact should mean sacrificing an engaging drive, and the latest model makes good with:

  • Standard 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available 1.5L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The Nissan Sentra is going to feel noticeably uninspiring in contrast. It only offers a single 2.0L 4-cylinder good for up to 149 hp.

Civic vs. Sentra: Features

The Honda Civic’s compelling engine lineup is complemented by a wide range of features covering everything from comfort to convenience to entertainment. Just a few highlights include:

  • 10-Speaker Premium Sound System
  • 8-Way Power Driver’s Seat
  • Heated Rear Outboard Seats
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

Look for those same features with the 2021 Nissan Sentra and you’ll find they’re absent entirely across all trim levels.

Civic vs. Sentra: Safety

Sentra safety technology might look impressive in isolation, but the Honda Civic still takes things further to provide cutting-edge protection for you and your family. Of the two, only the Civic offers:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Available Honda LaneWatch™

They work together to control your speed through traffic and prevent unsafe lane changes.
