2014 Nissan Sentra vs. 2014 Dodge Avenger Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Sentra as you will with the Dodge Avenger, 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). Based on MSRP, the Nissan Sentra is clearly a better financial choice over the Dodge Avenger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan Sentra carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Avenger.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Sentra is much slimmer than the Dodge Avenger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Nissan Sentra, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Avenger.

Drivetrain
The Nissan Sentra has much less torque than the Dodge Avenger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Nissan Sentra has a smaller turning radius than the Dodge Avenger, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Sentra is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Avenger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan Sentra and the Dodge Avenger. The Nissan Sentra has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Dodge Avenger.

Warranty
The Nissan Sentra comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Avenger.
