2011 Nissan Sentra review

Some cars get all the attention, and the Nissan Sentra isn't one of them. Its name isn't always uttered in the same sentences as models like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, but after driving one it's clear that it should be; this car deserves to be on compact-car buyers' shopping lists. While you probably wouldn't regret getting a Civic or Corolla, the Sentra outdoes those cars in some areas and offers a number of upscale features for exceptionally affordable prices.

In the world of everyday, economy transportation, the Sentra is a pleasant surprise — a hidden gem for those willing to give it a try.

I tested an uplevel Sentra 2.0 SL. This trim level starts at $18,560, but with options its as-tested price was $20,630.
