The Roomy Cabin of the 2017 Sentra

Are you looking for a compact sedan that’s efficient, commodious, and chock full of amenities? Your quest can end today. Here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet, we have put together a comparison of the 2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic. Read on to find out why the Nissan Sentra comes out on top.

The right exterior features don’t just add to the charm of your vehicle, they also contribute to its safety. The 2017 Sentra offers LED headlamps in its top three trims, for ultimate style and complete clarity as you cruise down I-45 on your way to Orland Grove Forest Preserve. It’s also equipped with turn signal mirrors in the top three trims, so those traveling beside you can tell when you want to change lanes. Meanwhile, the 2017 Civic does not come with turn signal mirrors at all and only affords LED headlamps in its top trim. The Sentra offers the safety and visibility that is required to experience true peace of mind from behind the wheel.

The Nissan Sentra grants you the dynamic performance you need to enjoy every ride to the fullest. Boasting a maximum 188 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque with its available 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the Sentra packs plenty of punch. On the other hand, the Honda Civic tops out at a mere 174 horsepower and 167 lb.-ft. of torque with its standard 2.0L inline 4-cylinder powertrain. With a fuel tank capacity of 12.4 gallons, the Civic does not hold as much gas as the Sentra. The Nissan Sentra stores 13.2 gallons of gasoline and allows for longer stretches of driving without having to stop at the pump. The Sentra's 34.8-ft. turning radius means you can navigate tight curves with ease. The Honda civic only manages a 35.7-ft. turning circle, so pulling out of parking spots and changing directions is a little more complicated.

Making the most out of interior space is vital in the compact sedan segment. The Civic supplies 37.5 inches of front headroom with its optional moonroof and 39.3 inches without it. However, the Sentra provides a plentiful 38.5 inches of front headroom with its available moonroof and 39.4 inches without it. Thanks to its 42.5 inches of front legroom, the 2017 Sentra affords all the space you need to spread out. The 2017 Civic falls short, with just 42.3 inches of front legroom to utilize. Clearly, the Sentra offers more room to relax and stretch out after a long day.

The current Nissan Sentra makes it easy to take advantage of the amenities you crave. Its standard trip computer means you can keep track of important vehicle information at all times. While the Civic is appointed with a trip computer, it is not available at all in the base trim. The latest Civic gives you the option of a split-folding rear seatback, but the Sentra does one better by equipping this handy feature in all of its models. Passenger seatback pocket storage is standard in the 2017 Sentra, while the 2017 Civic fails to provide the aforementioned in its base model.

Accessible convenience, optimal performance, and abundant space make the Sentra the decided winner in this matchup between the 2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic near Orland Park, IL. You can take the current Sentra for a test drive when you schedule an appointment, here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet. We pride ourselves on working with the efficiency and diligence required to meet all your needs. What are you waiting for? Stop by and speak with one of our courteous associates as soon as today!
