2018 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2018 Nissan Sentra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Cruze offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Nissan Sentra with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Nissan Sentra in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Cruze you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Sentra, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Cruze will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Sentra. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze and the Nissan Sentra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Cruze is a little wider than the Nissan Sentra, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Cruze takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Sentra.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Cruze and the Nissan Sentra do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Performance
The Chevrolet Cruze has less horsepower than the Nissan Sentra, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Nissan Sentra.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Sentra.
