2013 Nissan Sentra test drive

I must say, this is quite a different experience than the Jetta Hybrid I just returned...

So far, hard seats, numb steering and a rough/noisy engine aren't something I am looking forward to drive for the next week.
Maybe things will get better....

Have a fun week with that pile.

Is Nissan really even building this for developed markets? It seems like something for the third world.

Well, what a revelation Vince. You are comparing an $18k car with a $27k?

The big question is what does the Sentra offer that you can't get in the similarly-sized but cheaper Versa? In keeping Versa, Sentra was supposed to be repositioned as a premium compact, but from what Vince is telling us so far it doesn't sound like they got that part right.

but but but I thought that the new Sentra was king of this class, and a truly "great piece of kit".

Can't wait for your salesman to arrive and proclaim how Nissan is the worlds greatest brand.

I haven't taken it for a test drive, but I honestly can say this is one of the most comfortable compacts I've sat in...ever. No huge console to get in the way. It just felt like it fit like a glove in comparison to all the others I sat it at the auto show in Miami. I was expecting to get blown away by the Dart and came up shorthanded, so this was nice surprise.

Too bad that engine is so weak.
