2020 Nissan Sentra vs Honda Civic
Here at Nissan 24, our teammates want our drivers around Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton, MA, to know as much as possible about their automotive options—particularly when it comes to making a decision about their next compact car. That’s why we’ve created this comparison between the Nissan Sentra and the Honda Civic!
2020 Nissan Sentra vs 2020 Honda Civic: Interior and Technology
With Apple CarPlay® and Android AutoÔ available on the higher trim levels of both models, you know that every drive will be high-tech and connected.
But not every drive is going to be equally comfortable in these vehicles. For example, the Sentra interior offers 44.0 inches of front legroom, while the Civic only offers 42.3 inches. Likewise, passengers in the back are going to have a lot more room for their hips in the Sentra than in the Civic: 53.3 inches, as opposed to just 47.3 inches, respectively.
The 2020 Sentra also offers a Rear Door Alert feature. If you’ve opened one of the rear doors before driving, it’ll remind you to check the back seats once you arrive.
2020 Sentra vs 2020 Civic: Performance and MPG
While the 2020 Nissan Sentra and the Honda Civic are both high-performing compact cars, it’s the Nissan Sentra that takes the cake when it comes to efficiency—highway MPG, in particular. Its base model offers drivers EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 29 city/39 highway/33 combined MPG.* The Honda Civic base model tops out at 38 highway MPG. Which car would you rather fill up for long distance?
The Sentra fuel tank is also ever-so-slightly larger than the Civic model’s: 12.4 gallons and 12.39 gallons, respectively. Although this isn’t a huge difference, when you combine it with the aforementioned highway MPG ratings, it could mean less stops during road trips.
2020 Nissan Sentra vs 2020 Honda Civic: Safety
Last, but not least, let’s take a look at safety. The Nissan Safety ShieldÒ 360 comes standard on all Sentra models, and it includes the following high-tech features:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Rear Automatic Braking
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Blind Spot Warning
- High Beam Assist
And those are just the beginning! Fortunately for you and your loved ones, the Honda SensingÒ suite includes a slew of comparable systems, including a Collision Mitigation Braking SystemÔ (which is similar to the Automatic Emergency Braking mentioned above).
At the end of the day, it seems like either of these vehicles could help keep you quite safe.
