2019 Honda Civic vs Nissan Sentra

This year, the drivers in Glendora, Baldwin Park, La Puente, and the surrounding California communities will have to make a tough decision—should they go with the new Honda Civic or the new Nissan Sentra?

That’s a stumper if we’ve ever heard one! That’s why our team here at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore West Covina wrote this 2019 Honda Civic vs. 2019 Nissan Sentra comparison. Contact us today!

Fuel Economy & Performance: 2019 Honda Civic & 2019 Nissan Sentra

2019 Honda Civic SportRight off the bat, you’ll notice that the 2019 Honda Civic smashes the 2019 Nissan Sentra in terms of fuel efficiency. The Civic sedan gets up to 30 city/48 highway MPG1, while the Sentra sedan only achieves about 27 city/35 highway MPG. Unfortunately, that difference is so significant that it puts Honda ahead, right out of the gate.

As for the abilities of these sedans, the Civic takes the lead yet again. Its base level 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. The Sentra, on the other hand, squeaks out 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.

Navigation and Entertainment Technology in the Honda Civic and Nissan Sentra

2019 Honda Civic EXYou’ll also notice that the 2019 Honda Civic is an extremely high-tech car. In the Civic, you can upgrade to the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, an accessory wireless charging mat, and a plug-in-and-play USB Audio Interface. And that’s not even counting their 10-Speaker, 450-Watt Premium Audio System, nor their Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ software.

On the other hand, while the Sentra has its own navigation and entertainment features, we’re not nearly as impressed by them as we are with the ones above. For example, they also offer a premium audio system, but it only comes with eight individual speakers, as opposed to the ten in the Honda!

Safety Systems in the 2019 Honda Civic and the 2019 Nissan Sentra

2019 Honda civicLast, but certainly not least, we’d like to give you a quick look at the available Honda Sensing® suite of intelligent safety features. These are the types of features that could potentially save you from a collision on the road:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

Thankfully, in this department, the 2019 Sentra comes close to measuring up to the 2019 Civic. With its six standard air bags, the Nissan sedan is comparable to the Honda sedan at the most basic level.
