2021 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2021 Nissan Sentra | Vallejo, CA

Finding the right family-friendly, efficient vehicle to get you around Vallejo isn’t always easy. If you’re looking for a compact sedan, though, you have multiple options. Two models you should consider are the Honda Civic Sedan and the 2021 Nissan Sentra. Once you look closely, you’ll see that the new Civic Sedan has several key advantages.

Performance & Efficiency

Performance and efficiency can go a long way towards helping make your errand run and daily commute that much easier. The Civic happens to outstrip the Sentra in both performance and efficiency. Under the hood of the Civic Sedan, you will find two dynamic engine options — a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that offers 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, and a bold 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque.
The Sentra only comes with a single 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque, which is significantly less than either option offered in the Civic
Despite easily offering more horsepower than the Sentra, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder offered with the Civic Sedan still manages to offer better fuel-efficiency numbers. This engine gets an EPA-estimated fuel-efficiency rating of 36 mpg combined, while the Sentra only gets 33 mpg combined.*

Interior Space

Just because you’re driving around a compact sedan, doesn’t mean you can’t still have ample interior space. If you want a spacious cabin, then you should consider the 2021 Civic Sedan over the 2021 Sentra. The Civic offers more rear legroom, and more front and rear head room to help your passengers feel more comfortable. The Sentra only offers 34.7 inches of rear legroom compared to 37.4 inches in the Civic Sedan; 38.9 inches of front head room compared to 39.3 inches; and 36.7 inches compared to 37.1 inches.
Even better, the Civic Sedan also has more trunk space than the Sentra, offering 15.1 cubic feet compared to 14.3 cubic feet. With this amount of interior space, the Civic is a solid value compared to the Sentra.
