The 2016 Nissan Sentra is a daily commuter, unconcerned with brisk acceleration or razor-sharp cornering. It’s quiet, thanks to the additional sound deadening, and the 4-cylinder engine only makes its presence known at full throttle, and even that’s not so loud thanks to the addition of Nissan’s D-Step logic to the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), which mimics a standard transmission under heavy loads. The suspension got slightly stiffer this year, but just enough to give the ride a more planted feel, not actually make it sporty or anything.
The Sentra already had one of the nicest interiors in the compact-sedan class, and the 2016 Sentra is even better. New are piano-black accents, better sound deadening, a 5-inch color LED info screen between the main gauges, and an improved audio-system interface. But as comfortable as the front seats are, the rear seats are a surprising highlight. There’s plenty of room for tall passengers, and the Sentra offers a ton of legroom. The trunk is equally huge.
The 2016 Sentra’s exterior styling closely mimics the recently updated Nissan Altima. The new headlights and grille treatment are more dramatic. The rest of the car is untouched, and that’s fine. We like the smoothly sculpted sheet metal, which manages to hold your attention without being flashy or overdone.
The most basic 2016 Nissan Sentra is the S, and it comes with standard air conditioning. It’s also equipped with Bluetooth phone and audio integration, a USB port, keyless entry and truck release, electroluminescent gauges, power windows, power mirrors, cruise control, auto headlights, and an audio system with four speakers. For extra cargo space the rear seatbacks fold in a 60/40 split. On the safety front, the Sentra get a modern complement of active and passive safety features including six airbags and electronic stability and traction control.
