Are you in the market for a compact sedan? We know that the segment is overflowing with available options, so it’s not always easy to find the right one for your lifestyle and needs. Today, we at Thomas Nissan of Joliet are pitting two opponents head-to-head—the 2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic. Both sedans offer some impressive features from their interior, to underneath the hood, but there is one that simply cannot help but stand out, and that is the 2017 Sentra. To learn more and to reserve your one-on-one appointment to see our favorite car up close and in person, give our friendly associates a call at 815-741-5353.

No matter what vehicle you drive, what is under the hood is the most important. The 2017 Sentra offers the most potential for power, with up to 188-hp and 177 lb.-ft. of torque with its available 1.6L Direct Injection turbocharged engine on the NISMO® trim level. When it comes to the Civic, the most it can muster up is 174-hp and 167 lb.-ft. of torque with its available 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. In addition to a more powerful engine option and irresistible speed, the Sentra will keep you on the road longer than you’d expect. When you’re making your way from The Promenade Bolingbrook all the way across town to Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen to meet your friends for lunch, you’ll have the Sentra’s 13.2-gal. fuel tank to help you pass the pump and focus on your destination. With the competitor, on the other hand, you may find yourself having to search for the nearest gas station more often, as the Civic comes in short again with a 12.3-gal. fuel tank capacity. When it comes to strength, speed, and efficiency, the choice is clear—the 2017 Sentra takes the win in all three categories!

What lies beneath the hood would be for naught if you didn’t have a comfortable interior to keep you and your passengers relaxed on long drives. Fortunately, the Sentra offers a number of features that are sure to excite and delight, beginning with the air conditioning system with in-cabin microfiltration. You’ll stay warm or cool, depending on the season, while breathing easier, thanks to the microfilter, which reduces pollen, dust, and other allergens from entering your cabin, all while circulating the air and keeping it smelling fresh and clean. Although the Civic also comes with a standard air conditioning system, you won’t have the added benefit of microfiltration when you choose this car. So, if you are someone who suffers from seasonal allergies, this is important to keep in mind! Storing smaller items throughout your cabin may be a bit more of a challenge in the Civic, as it does not come standard with a passengers-side seatback pocket. Luckily, you’ll find this feature on the base trim of the Sentra, so storing books, magazines, or electronics is an easy feat!

After reviewing this 2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic comparison near Bolingbrook, IL, the choice is clear. The Sentra offers the most, from inside the cabin, to beneath the hood. Plus, with up to eight available trim levels on the Sentra and only five trims on the Civic, the customization options you’ll have when you choose the Sentra are endless. Visit Thomas Nissan of Joliet today during our convenient business hours to learn more and introduce yourself. We look forward to meeting you!
