Which Nissan Sedan is Right for You
Whether you’re looking for a spacious vehicle for your family or a comfortable vehicle to commute to and from work, Nissan has a great line of sedans to choose from, including, the Maxima, Altima and Sentra. We will break down each to help you determine which is right fit for you.
The smallest of Nissan sedans, the Sentra, offers incredible value, starting out at $16,990, which is lower than competitors in its class. The Nissan Sentra may be classified as a compact car, however, looking at the interior you would never know. The Sentra is spacious and packed with the latest technology like blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert. It also comes with Automatic Emergency Braking which uses radar technology to help you avoid frontal collisions. Another detail that sets the Sentra apart from its competitors is the available Bose Audio System which gives the Sentra premium audio quality while driving. For smaller families, the Sentra fits five people comfortably and offers great cargo space compared to other vehicles in its class. All in all, the Nissan Sentra offers a spacious interior along with many luxury features at an affordable price.
Nissan’s mid-size sedan, the Altima, comes with slightly more power and space than the Sentra. The Altima comes with two engine options, the fuel efficient 4-cylinder and the more powerful 270-HP, V6 engine. Despite having more power and space than the Sentra, the Altima manages to get 38 miles per gallon highway which is competitive for its class. Available Intelligent Forward Collision Warning gives the Nissan Altima the added safety of being able to monitor distance and velocity of the vehicle in front of you, and the one in front of that one. It also comes with a tire pressure monitoring system with class-exclusive easy-fill tire alert. This feature alerts the driver when tire pressure is low, and which specific tire is down. It also gives a friendly beep of the horn when you are at the right pressure. This along with other safety features helped award the 2018 Nissan Altima with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick.
The Maxima, is the most luxurious of Nissan’s sedans. Rightfully nicknamed, the 4-door sports car, the Maxima is equipped with 3.5-Liter V6 that creates 300HP and 262 lb. ft. torque. Power aside, the Maxima is a luxury car through and through. With best-in-class front headroom and legroom, you will have enough space to stretch out during those long morning commutes. When it comes to technology, Maxima has you covered from every angle, literally. With Intelligent Around View Monitor you have a virtual composite 360-degree view of your surroundings and helps detect moving objects within proximity. The Maxima also comes with a list of available safety features like Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Advanced Safety Technologies, Vehicle Dynamic Control and Traction Control System. But don’t just take our word, IIHS named the 2018 Maxima their Top Safety Pick.
