2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic near Aurora, IL

When on the lookout for your next compact sedan, the vast selection can leave you perplexed on where to begin your search. You want a vehicle that makes an impression, has a peppy drive, and places space and fuel efficiency at the top of your list of priorities. Fear not! Our team at Thomas Nissan of Joliet is here to make your decision as easy as possible with our comparison between the 2017 Nissan Sentra and the 2017 Honda Civic. We aim to inform and we hope this side-by-side view distinguishes how the Sentra holds the spot as the top choice.

Efficiency is certainly important when indulging in a vehicle. A unique feature the Nissan Sentra comes with on its base trim is an oil cooler, which keeps the engine as cool as can be by simply keeping the oil at a consistently lower temperature. The cooled oil, in turn, maintains the engine running smoothly during gear changes, or those blistering hot days during the summer. With this in mind, the Sentra can take on long road trips with ease, and you will have the peace of mind that your engine won’t overheat. Speaking of long trips, the Sentra is geared up and ready to go, providing a 13.2-gallon fuel tank capacity that allows you to pass the pump with regularity. On the other hand, the Civic provides a meager 12.4-gallon tank capacity.

What is the point of efficiency when you don’t have power? The Sentra does not disappoint, equipped with a 1.6-liter direct injection turbocharged 4-cylinder powerhouse. This beast rumbles to the tune of 188 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal while traversing down Route 66. When it comes to the Civic, the numbers don’t quite reach that of the Sentra’s with the 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine. This powertrain provides a skimpy 174 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque, leaving a lot to be desired. So, if you crave a bit more vigor on your drives, the choice is clearly the Sentra.

Moving on to the interior, the battle between these two vehicles starts to get a little more interesting. Space is key no matter what, especially if you take regular weekend trips with the family. The Sentra boasts 15.1 cubic ft. of trunk volume1, so you will not have to leave behind any of the essentials. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same for the Civic, the 12.1 cubic ft. of rear space2 simply does not reach its full potential. Your crew will also enjoy their time spread out in the roomy interior of the Sentra with 95.9 cubic ft. of passenger volume. The Civic is a bit more cramped with a mere interior space of 88.6 cubic ft., so passengers may be susceptible to invading each other's space.

Now that you have seen who the clear winner is between the 2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic near Aurora, IL, come on down to Thomas Nissan of Joliet! If this wasn’t convincing enough, get behind the wheel for a test drive in this compact sedan and you will be sure to fall in love. We are located at 1427 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL.
