2016 Nissan Sentra vs 2016 Chevy Cruze

Comparing and contrasting is one of the best tools you have when shopping around for a new vehicle and when two worthy competitors go head-to-head, only one can come away as the winner for you. At Glendale Nissan, we know that the Sentra has been a crowd-pleaser and family-favorite year after year, but we’d like to tell you more about why.

The Nissan Sentra and Chevy Cruze both are competitively priced, with MSRPs well below $20,000 and copious amounts of features to choose from. And although both sedans are compact, both excel when it comes to providing passengers with more than enough space for their legs as well as their cargo items. (The Nissan Sentra even begins to creep up on the space standards for a midsize sedan.)

2016 Nissan Sentra: The Center of Attention

One of the number one expectations of a compact sedan is for it to be highly efficient and possibly serve as a commuter car.

The 2016 Nissan Sentra and Chevy Cruze perform well on city streets and open highways; in fact, the Nissan Sentra is able to earn 30 city/ 40 hwy mpg while still managing to produce up to 130 horsepower. It’s paired with Nissan’s Xtronic CVT transmission which allows for smooth automatic shifting to ensure you’re in the most efficient gear possible. This means your vehicle doesn’t have to work as hard, less fuel is burned, and more money is saved. Sounds like a win-win-win all around!

Efficient, safe, and affordable, the Nissan Sentra also packs in the value to help it get ahead of the competition. Its style is sporty while its interior is crafted with soft touch materials and eye-pleasing accents. As we mentioned before, everyone will have plenty of space and as for trunk space, it is the best in its class.
