TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2017 Nissan Sentra

2017 Nissan Sentra Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
Different people are shaped and sized differently and so will have different impressions of a given car seat. I found the Nissan Sentra's revised seats uncomfortable. A power lumbar adjustment has been added. But this was of no use, as even when minimized the lumbar bulge is overly prominent for my back. I drove with my upper back off the seat. I've had a similar problem with the seats in some small Hondas, but the seats in the new Civic fit me well. see full Nissan Sentra review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2017 Nissan Sentra

2017 Nissan Sentra Powertrain: Cons
YearComment
The 2016 Nissan Sentra continues with the same 130-horsepower 1.8-liter engine as the 2013. This engine didn't deliver competitive performance back in 2013, and it's even further behind in 2016. The Civic's new 174-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter engine is far more powerful and doesn't sound nearly as strained. You cannot manually shift the Sentra's CVT (continuously variable transmission) among simulated fixed ratios the way you can with some such transmissions. This prevents anything resembling precise, predictable control over engine output, limiting driver confidence and killing any joy that might be had on a curvy road. The new Civic's CVT at least has a sport mode that makes it somewhat more suitable to performance driving. see full Nissan Sentra review
