Safety

At this time, the Sentra has not been crash tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Standard safety features include antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, active head restraints for the front seats, and lots of airbags, including front, front-seat side-impact and side curtains. While traction control isn't offered, a limited-slip differential is optional on the Spec V (but not the regular SE-R). Unfortunately, an electronic stability system isn't offered. It's standard on most sport compacts and optional on others.

Cargo Capacity

At 13.1 cubic feet, the Sentra's trunk volume is competitive with other compact car trunks, but the SE-R models sacrifice a standard folding backseat for a V-brace — visible at the front of the trunk cavity — that's claimed to add structural stability.
