Civic vs. Sentra: Performance Specs

The Honda Civic delivers engaging performance through every journey, and it’s one of the few compact sedans able to show sporty responsiveness even when you’re driving at speed on the highway. That performance comes from one of two exceptional engines:

  • 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • 1.5L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The Nissan Sentra can’t compare. It only offers one engine, and that engine only makes up to 149 hp.

Civic vs. Sentra: Available Features

The Honda Civic has one of the most generous feature lists in the compact sedan segment, so you’ll find several available amenities here that aren’t offered by the Nissan Sentra in any configuration. Such features include:

  • 10-Speaker Premium Sound System
  • 8-Way Power Driver’s Seat
  • Heated Rear Outboard Seats
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

Civic vs. Sentra: Safety Tech

Honda vehicles bring the latest safety technology to ensure flawless peace of mind, including several state of the art amenities in the new Civic that aren’t matched by the Nissan Sentra. Highlights include:

  • Standard Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Adjusts your preset cruising speed up and down to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.
  • Available LaneWatch™: Provides a video feed from under the appropriate side mirror to display what’s happening in your blind spot area and prevent unsafe lane changes.

In stark contrast, the Nissan Sentra reserves Adaptive Cruise Control for higher trims and doesn’t provide any LaneWatch feature.
