When you’re ready to get behind the wheel of a truly exceptional compact sedan, look to this comparison of the 2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic near Romeoville, IL, to discover which one you should choose. We at Thomas Nissan of Joliet think it’s an easy decision, so read on to see how the Sentra overcomes its competition in more ways than one!

Inside both of these sedans is a number of conveniences, but the Sentra takes it a step further by including an overhead storage console that the Civic lacks. You can equip the 2017 Civic with a 60/40-split-fold-down bench seat on its higher trims, but its base only offers a standard folding bench seat. The 2017 Sentra includes a 60/40 split-folding capacity on its rear seats as a standard feature, so you have all of the capability you need to load up longer items in the trunk.

Though both sedans feature a Tire Pressure Monitoring System1, only the Sentra is equipped with the Easy-Fill Tire Alert2, which makes you aware when pressure is low with a notification. Though you can equip the Civic with an exterior temperature display on higher trims, the Sentra comes standard with an outside temperature display in its drive computer. The Honda Civic eliminates the integration of a CD player, but for some, this feature is necessary when you want to play your holiday albums en route to Target during your favorite season! With the Nissan Sentra’s inclusion of a CD player, you can do just that, as this sedan offers multiple ways to play your favorite music without eradicating this classic method. Though the Civic leaves out room for an auxiliary input jack, the Sentra ensures that you can plug in your smartphone via this feature anytime to listen to your playlists on command.

Under-the-hood and exterior features are important when it comes to performance in this comparison of the 2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic near Romeoville, IL. You can bypass gas stations when you’re in a hurry, thanks to the Sentra’s 13-gallon fuel tank capacity. The Civic will have you making extra stops with its mere 12-gallon fuel capacity. While the 2017 Civic only offers nine color combinations from which to choose, with only a single dull shade of Rallye Red, the 2017 Sentra allows for 10, ensuring you have multiple options for similar hues, distinguishing the unique difference between Cayenne Red and Red Alert. The Civic implements aluminum-alloy wheels, but the Sentra takes it up a notch with upscale steel wheels that gleam along your commutes down Route 55.

Take home the winner of the 2017 Nissan Sentra vs 2017 Honda Civic near Romeoville, IL, competition: the Sentra! It’s as simple as coming down to Thomas Nissan of Joliet for a test drive, and we are located at 1427 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL, for your convenience.
