2017 Nissan Sentra Walk Around

Taller and narrower than typical of compact bodies, Sentras lack the visual spirit of a Honda Civic or Mazda 3. Overall, the Sentra conveys the relatively plain image of an econocar.

Up front, the deep V-shaped grille is flanked by boomerang-shaped headlights. SR models express a modestly sportier theme, making them stand out a bit from the compact crowd.


Roomy and welcoming, the tall-roofed Sentra would have been considered midsize not so long ago. Though seat comfort ranks around average, four passengers can expect ample space for heads and legs. Even with a sunroof, head clearance for six-foot riders isn’t a likely concern.

Up front, the driver and passenger sit somewhat higher than usual. Back-seat passengers get plenty of legroom, with sufficient space for two average-size adults or a trio of pre-teen youngsters. Getting into the back seat is easy, too, through doors that open wide onto broad openings. At highway speeds, the cabin is agreeably quiet.

With cargo volume of 15.1 cubic feet, the Sentra provides one of the largest trunks in the compact class. Split rear seats fold down to increase storage capabilities and include a folding center armrest.

Although the cabin won’t be called fashionable, it’s traditional in nature, led by an upright dashboard with logical controls. Curving gently, the two-tier dashboard tapers at the sides, boosting available space. Standard cloth upholstery is a better choice than optional leather, which has a plastic-like feel.
