Nissan Sentra vs. Chevrolet Cruze

The 2018 Nissan Sentra upgrades your every day. Head-turning good looks, available advanced safety features, and available turbocharged performance are just the start, and you won’t find all this in the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze.


Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ connects you to your drive like never before. Get help when you need it with these driver-assist technologies. Even the most attentive driver will be happy to have this type of support:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking1
  • Intelligent Cruise Control2
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert3


Sentra impresses with excellent fuel economy thanks to the 1.8-liter engine teamed with a virtually gearless CVT transmission that helps maximize efficiency and performance. The low rolling resistance tires reduce friction to help you move, so you can enjoy up to 37 MPG highway4.

  • Low Rolling Resistance All-season Tires
  • Twin Continuously Variable Valve Timing
  • Low Drag Coefficient

These features work together to make sure you get a smooth drive, every time.
