Nissan has engineered some of the best, most reliable sedans on the road. The Sentra SL is the manufacturer’s fully loaded version of its smaller efficiency sedan, built to utilize safety, convenience and fuel efficiency while conquering its class of vehicle. After enjoying a Sentra for a week, we see why more and more of our affluent readers are purchasing them for their teens.
Our Sentra was in an Amethyst Gray that reflected the sun beautifully. The 17” wheels looked fantastic on the car and Smart Auto Headlights with LED accents decorated the exterior alongside LED tail lights and turn signals. Fog lights were also equipped for the clearest sight possible in any weather.
The interior of the sedan was spacious and comfortable. Even the back seats, as seen in consumer reviews, had an impressive amount of space compared to competitors. In the center of the dash was a 4.3” color screen that played our FM, Sirius XM or Bluetooth through six speakers and illuminated controls on everything, even down to the steering wheel, made navigating controls easy.
The Nissan Sentra receives a combined 34 mpg with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine coupled with an Xtronic CVT transmission. You are also given two driving modes, Eco Mode and Sport Mode, for your convenience and enjoyment. Another notable ability of the Sentra that made it stand out compared to competitors is its power while merging lanes, as well as the stopping speed of the power-assisted brakes, with disc brakes in the front and drums in the rear.
The Sentra is, again, a fantastic first car for your teen. With a four-star safety rating, impressive fuel efficiency and the convenience of a spacious, comfortable interior, you will be confident that your teen will be safe and happy driving this sedan all the way to college. At a low price of just $23,450 when fully loaded, you can’t go wrong. Get to your local Nissan dealer and see one of these beautiful cars for yourself.
