Photos of the Nissan Sentra

For 2016 the Sentra gets the same grille as other current Nissans. It's an improvement.

The 2013-2015 Sentra's grille.

The new Sentra looks upscale, especially in this blue and in the top SL trim. But is it beautiful?

Fully redone Civic. More comfortably raked windshield, yet more futuristic and much more attractive.

Previous Civic suffered from an overly raked windshield and aesthetic confusion around the pillar.

The undulating character line along the shoulder is shared with some other Nissans.

Tall for a compact sedan. Complex surfacing reduces the apparent height of the body sides.

The sleek new Civic appears far longer than the Sentra, even though they're the same length.

Piano black trim has replaced faux wood and silver plastic. Ambiance remains relatively traditional.

The Civic's interior styling also has improved dramatically. Far more modern than the Sentra's.

Massive bi-level instrument panel in the 2013 Civic. But materials were better than the 2012's.

Nissan says the shape of the instrument panel was inspired by a bird's wing.

Conventional instruments and logical controls. Infotainment display too low.

Everything within easy reach. But I'd like knobs for volume and tuning. Display a little too low.

The Sentra's driver seat appears more comfortable than it is. New power adjustments of no use to me

More comfortable than the seats in the previous Civic and current Sentra. Love the dark stripe.

Plenty of rear legroom. Rear headroom is in much shorter supply.

Voluminous trunk. The Civic has caught up in this area, though.

Very good fuel economy, but marginal performance, and the CVT has a mind of its own.

First turbo in a U.S. Honda. More powerful and more efficient than the Sentra's engine.
