2017 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2017 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. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Cruze, drivers may find the Nissan Sentra a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Cruze as you will with the Nissan Sentra, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Cruze or the Nissan Sentra, it's going to cost you about the same. 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
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Nissan Sentra.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze is somewhat more powerful than the Nissan Sentra.

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.
