2016 Nissan Sentra
MSRP: $16,780
Nissan’s popular compact sedan gets a refresh for the 2016 model year with updated styling and a number of new safety and convenience technologies. Standard features include an AM/FM/CD audio system, remote keyless entry, multiple airbags, a split-folding rear seat and 16-inch steel wheels. Safety features such as vehicle dynamics control, traction control and anti-lock brakes are also standard. Power comes from 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower. Fuel-economy numbers are quite good — Sentra is rated at 27 city / 36 hwy when equipped with the manual transmission. Upgrading to the Xtronic CVT jumps the mpg numbers to 29 and 38 respectively.
