Nissan Sentra
Top Safety Pick
Front Crash Prevention: Superior (5 points)
The Sentra was refreshed with new styling and updated features last year, which among other things includes new safety equipment. In addition to standard multiple airbags, stability control and anti-lock brakes, the Sentra is available with Nissan’s advanced Safety Shield Technologies. These include Forward Emergency Braking, Intelligent Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. With these optional systems, the Sentra was able avoid a collision in the low-speed autobrake test while reducing speed by 10 mph in the high-speed test. A “Poor” headlight rating is the only reason Sentra cannot be considered a Top Safety Pick+.
Additional Costs: Forward Emergency Braking is part of the Premium Technology Package, which is only available on SR and SL trims and priced at $3,820 on the SR, $2,360 on the SL. However, the Tech Package requires the Premium Package, which runs $2,590 on the SR and $1,130 on the SL.
