2019 Nissan Sentra review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Nissan Sentra?

The front-wheel-drive Nissan Sentra is a compact sedan that seats five and comes in six trim levels that range from economy models to turbocharged performance versions. The base engine is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that works with a six-speed manual or an optional continuously variable automatic transmission. SR Turbo and NISMO models are powered by a 188-horsepower, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder. Competitors include the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla.

What’s New on the 2019 Nissan Sentra?

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is included on all trims but the base S version. A new SV Special Edition Package includes 17-inch alloy wheels, rear disc brakes, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, a power moonroof and minor convenience features.

What Features in the 2019 Nissan Sentra Are Most Important?

Standard features include cruise control, power windows and locks and air conditioning, but it's worth stepping up to the SV trim to get CarPlay and Android Auto. The high-end SL trim comes with features like leather upholstery, front seat heaters, a Bose stereo and a power moonroof. CVT-equipped Sentras come with automatic emergency braking.  

Should I Buy the 2019 Nissan Sentra?

Having not seen a substantial redesign since the 2013 model year, the Sentra is starting to show its age. Despite offering good value and a roomy interior, the base engine can be sluggish and noisy, and the car has numb steering feel.

Poor features

1. Slow acceleration 2. The radio will randomly start and battery dies as a result - Nissan have recalled the car 3 times and after the warranty expires, customer will have to pay out of pocket for same issues 3. Front radar - comes on after sensing slightest obstacle like snow, refuses to go off for the rest of the trip
