2016 Nissan Altima vs 2016 Nissan Sentra
So, decision time. You’re shopping for a sedan, and you’ve got diagrams and spreadsheets analyzing just what it is that will send you toward one model over another. Is it fuel efficiency that guides you in the direction of a particular model? Perhaps it’s a particular powertrain, or an assemblage of features that floats your proverbial boat? Whatever the case, you’re certain to find a viable option within the expansive Nissan lineup, and two of Robbins Nissan’s most popular models–the 2016 Nissan Altima and the 2016 Nissan Sentra–are certain to be among your top candidates. But how do they fare when compared side-by-side?
It might be tempting to assume that the Altima is simply a larger sibling to the Sentra, and this is true in some regards. However, the Sentra is certainly capable of standing on its own two feet. Although more slight in stature than the Altima, the Sentra offers drivers a compelling performance by way of its 1.8L four-cylinder engine which can reach the lofty heights of 40 highway mpg. Additionally, with three terrific driving modes–Eco, Normal and Sport–to help suit each situation, you can be certain that the Sentra is more than up to the task.
