Power and safety are pretty well accounted for with the 2010 Nissan Sentra receiving top ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in all categories. Even the federal government ratings show the Sentra as a top performer in the safety category with top ratings in all categories except rear passenger side impact. The latter test still received four-stars making the Sentra one of the safest cars in its class. The power is also good coming from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 140 horsepower. The nit from most of the review editors around the industry is the transmission selection. Neither the manual or the CVT is very well liked, but we suggest you try it out for yourself to see if one fits the bill.
Bottom line—the 2010 Nissan Sentra is a good small city car with plenty of trunk space, average rear seat room for the class and good visibility. If you to haven’t thought the Sentra in a while and are checking out other small cars in its class, then give the Sentra another look.
