Summary, Prices, Specs

By November 10, 1999


Affordable, practical, comfortable and fun to drive are the words that best describe the Sentra.

This sedan offers an attractive, roomy and comfortable interior. It's quiet underway with little engine, road or wind noise. It soaks up bumps, but handling is precise and controlled. Acceleration is adequate, yet the engine is downright miserly with fuel.

Driving a Sentra is not a chore. It does the job well and even provides a little fun while doing it. These attributes make the Sentra well worthy of consideration when shopping for a small sedan.
