As far as compact sedans go, the 2021 Nissan Sentra is a gem of a car. For one thing, even though it is officially classified as a compact vehicle, it is so large and roomy on the inside that one might consider it a midsize sedan instead. The Nissan Sentra has been serving budget-conscious drivers all over the world since 1982, and each year just keeps getting better and better.
If you're in the market for a vehicle with a low MSRP, budget-friendly gas mileage, and all the bells, whistles, and safety features you could ever need, look no further than the 2021 Nissan Sentra. Nissan keeps things simple with just three trim choices, making it easy for you to decide on the perfect model for you. Each trim level boasts its own unique take of this high-value vehicle, and as you go through the options, you will be amazed at how modern and still affordable they managed to keep the packages. Now the only question is, what will Nissan think of next?
The shining feature of the 2021 Nissan Sentra is absolutely the interior. This vehicle, though officially classified as a compact sedan, is actually large enough internally to keep up with the midsize sedan class. First, let's talk about legroom. If you've ever felt cramped in a too-small car, you know the uncomfortable feeling that comes with not being able to move your feet or wiggle your knees. Thankfully, those feelings are no more with the 2021 Sentra. In fact, the 2021 Sentra has incredible legroom so that you will never have to worry about feeling too squished again.
When you sit in the front seat of the Nissan Sentra, your legs will get to enjoy a whopping 44 inches of space. That's more than any other compact sedan on the market. So next time you're going on a long road trip or simply commuting through rush hour traffic, you will be able to stretch out and relax in comfort. And of course, anybody who has a particularly tall family member who normally would have to forgo riding in your sedan due to lack of space will love the fact that their loved ones can ride with them comfortably, no matter their length.
As if the front seat legroom wasn't enough, the overall interior volume of the Nissan Sentra is also exceptional. When you're inside the 2021 Nissan Sentra, you're going to find 96 cu.ft. of space in which to spread out. This is enough space for you, your gear, some car seats, a pet or two, and a few passengers. Not many compact sedans can boast that kind of interior volume.
Then, of course, there's the Sentra's cargo space. The trunk of the Sentra can hold 14.3 cu.ft. of cargo - just imagine what you could put into that kind of cargo space. If you ever need even more room, all you need to do is fold down one or both of the 60/40 split folding rear seats. Good luck filling that up on a regular basis. It's no wonder why so many people are so loyal to Nissan.
Nissan is a company that believes in keeping drivers safe without breaking the bank. That's why the 2021 Sentra comes with so many safety features. And the best part is that nearly all of these safety features are standard, not optional, meaning you don't need to worry about spending more than the advertised price in order to keep your family safe. Nissan's premium Safety Shield 360 comes standard with each and every Sentra. No matter your trim level, you are going to be able to take advantage of this suite of modern driver-assist technologies.
Perhaps the number one standard safety technology in the Sentra is automatic emergency braking technology with pedestrian detection. The automatic braking technology will monitor your distance and speed of the vehicle in front of you. If the car in front of you begins braking unexpectedly or an obstacle suddenly appears, your vehicle will detect this and apply pressure to your brakes so that you don't end up in a collision. The vehicle can even detect and stop for a pedestrian in the road if someone steps out in front of your car. This can quite literally be a life-saving feature and is something you should never leave home without. Thankfully, the Sentra makes it, so you don't have to.
Even more surprisingly for a compact sedan, the Sentra has standard rear automatic braking as well. This technology is for those of us who struggled to see everything behind us when backing up. If the Sentra detects something behind you that you are about to hit, it will apply your brakes so that you don't scratch up your car or destroy another object. This is perfect for anybody who has ever hit a pole, a barrier, or a child's bike while backing out of a parking spot or driveway.
Rear cross traffic alert is similar to the rear automatic braking technology in that it will warn you of something behind you that you cannot see. However, rather than detecting objects directly behind you, it will warn you if any vehicles are approaching at an angle - such as when you are trying to back out of a parking place between two large SUVs and cannot see oncoming traffic. High beam assist is another useful feature that comes standard with the 2021 Nissan Sentra. When you are driving in the dark, your vehicle will automatically turn your high beams when it senses oncoming traffic, allowing you to keep both hands on the wheel.
Finally, we have the blind spot warning and the lane departure warning technologies. Lane departure warning will alert you if you begin to drift out of your lane, and blind spot warning will alert you if there is another vehicle in your blind spot. Both of these features save lives each and every day, and you will be grateful that Nissan thought to include them for free in the 2021 Sentra. The only modern safety features that are not standard in the Sentra are intelligent cruise control and a 360-degree camera system - but both are available on the higher trims.
While the 2021 Nissan Sentra is both safe and comfortable, Nissan takes it even further by making it fun. The 2021 Sentra has some modern technologies that you are going to love. In fact, you'll soon wonder how you ever lived for so long without these features in your car.
First, we've got smartphone integration. Connect any compatible Apple or Android smartphone to your Sentra, and you'll soon be jamming to your favorite tunes, following along to your favorite podcast, and even chatting with friends and family, all while safely operating your vehicle. Yes, that includes texting without having to touch your phone because nearly everything in the Nissan Sentra can be controlled through voice commands. And with the available Bose Premium Audio System, your entire vehicle will be filled with premium sound quality.
Beyond just connecting your smartphone, the standard 7-inch display also offers an available easy-to-use navigation system that you are going to love. Find a local place to eat, locate that client's house, or find an interesting landmark on your next road trip, all with the 2021 Nissan Sentra display. This display is especially handy when your phone is providing you with the latest hits, and you still need to use a navigation system that doesn't interrupt your music.
The Sentra also offers USB and USB-C ports so you can charge your devices while you're on the go. No more showing up to your destination with a nearly dead phone. And, of course, the Sentra takes connectivity to the next level by transforming into your own portable WiFi hotspot. Now you can enjoy your favorite apps without using up all of your data! These are the kinds of technologies that every vehicle should consider adding. Thankfully, the 2021 Sentra is one step ahead of the competition and makes these technologies available to Nissan drivers everywhere.
