Right when you think you have your mind made up about a vehicle, it goes and does a complete
180 on you and you're stuck wondering how in the world they possibly made that vehicle even
better. We dare say that is exactly what we have here in the 2016 Nissan Sentra. This vehicle has
always been known as a reliable, cozy, efficient compact car, but now with a sporty redesign and more
advanced technology, it is looking to completely take over its category. We see how it stacks up against
one of the most popular sedans in its segment with the Nissan Sentra vs Ford Focus comparison.
One of the key differences that we can clearly see in
the table above is that the redesigned 2016 Nissan
Sentra offers far more interior room for passengers
than the 2016 Ford Focus. With a longer wheelbase
and more passenger volume, both the driver and their
passengers will never be feeling cramped inside this
The vehicle also offers ample head, shoulder, hip and leg room in both the front and rear.
The Sentra also has the advantage in cargo room in the trunk, with 15.1 cubic-feet available
compared to the Focus's 13.2 cubic-feet
When we say that the 2016 Nissan Sentra
received a redesign we don't mean that there
were a couple of touch ups made here and there.
No, just about every single inch of this vehicle
has been upgraded with Nissan's new design language. This includes the front and rear fascias,
the hood, the grille, the dash cluster, the audio
display, and even the steering wheel!
All of these aspects have been optimized to provide drivers with a sportier, more enhanced
driving experience, as well as a compact car that people don't mind looking at!
Additionally, Nissan has also added several new
technologies to the 2016 Sentra to make the overall
driving experience more enjoyable. Some of these
technologies that are available in various Sentra trims
include an autonomous emergency braking system, a
blind spot warning, a rear cross traffic alert, Siri Eyes
Free, and intelligent cruise control.
