2016 Nissan Sentra vs. 2016 Honda Civic Brockton MA
If you’re shopping for a sedan that’s efficient and stylish, the 2016 Nissan Sentra is worthy of your attention. Its design, performance and technology are competitive with the Honda Civic, one of the most popular sedans on the market; but which one is right for you?
That’s what Nissan 24 decided to find out. Car shoppers in Brockton, Randolph and Stoughton can read our side-by-side Sentra vs. Civic comparison to decide which one has the power and performance you’re looking for.
2016 Nissan Sentra Performance vs. Honda Civic Performance
The Nissan Sentra and Honda Civic are each offered in five trim levels. A four-cylinder engine powers both operations and front-wheel drive comes standard on each.
Every Nissan Sentra comes with a two-speed Xtronic® continuously variable transmission (CVT), with the exception of its base trim, which gets a six-speed manual. Each maintains an efficient fuel economy and smooth gear shifts, no matter where your journey takes you.
Like the Nissan Sentra, the 2016 Honda Civic comes with a manual transmission on its base trim and a CVT on its higher trims. Both provide an efficient ride, though some drivers might find the Civic’s sluggish gear shifts off-putting. The Sentra’s CVT, by contrast, delivers smooth, responsive shifts throughout the ride.
2016 Nissan Sentra Interior vs. 2016 Honda Civic Interior
The 2016 Nissan Sentra and Honda Civic each seat five passengers and come with plenty of legroom. Quiet and spacious, each sedan comes with soft upholstery and luxurious accents.
2016 Sentra drivers can add an available dual zone automatic temperature control system, which lets front passengers set separate temperatures based on their preferences. Unfortunately, the Civic only comes with a standard heating and cooling system.
2016 Sentra Technology Features vs. 2016 Honda Civic Technology Features
The Nissan Sentra also provides advanced tech features to keep you connected throughout the ride, including an infotainment system integrated in its dashboard.
NissanConnectSM comes with a high-definition touchscreen, Bluetooth®, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and Smartphone integration, making it easy to connect to the digital world around you. With the Sentra, it’s easier than ever to access your favorite mobile features without losing your focus on driving.
The 2016 Honda Civic also offers an infotainment system, complete with a crisp multi-color display, smartphone integration and more. However, its touchscreen is somewhat temperamental, and its controls are confusing to use. As a result, the Civic’s infotainment system becomes a distraction while driving. NissanConnectSM, by contrast, is intuitive, easy to use and responsive throughout the ride.
