The Honda Civic is one of the most celebrated models in the compact sedan segment, and all it takes is a quick 2021 Honda Civic vs. 2021 Nissan Sentra comparison to show why. Even matched up against a strong rival like the Sentra, the Civic still excels whether you’re looking at performance specs or onboard technology. Read on to compare:

  • Horsepower and Torque
  • Features
  • Safety

Civic vs. Sentra: Horsepower and Torque

Able to provide acceleration and cruising power above and beyond conventional standards, the Honda Civic offers drivers a choice of two exceptional engines:

  • Standard 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Delivers up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available 1.5L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: Delivers up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The Nissan Sentra doesn’t let you choose between engines. Instead, the same uninspiring 2.0L 4-cylinder is fitted across all configurations for just 149 hp.

Civic vs. Sentra: Features

Standout standard features of the Honda Civic include a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and Speed Sensitive Volume Compensation. Both are unavailable with any configuration of the Nissan Sentra, as are the following optional Civic features:

  • 10-Speaker Premium Sound System
  • Driver’s Seat with 8-Way Power Adjustment
  • Heated Front and Outboard Rear Seats

Focus on anything from year-round comfort in both rows to immersive audio and the Honda Civic will outperform the Nissan Sentra.

Civic vs. Sentra: Safety

Honda hates falling behind when it comes to safety technology, which is why you’ll find the latest Civic fitted with sophisticated driver assistance systems. Highlights include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Honda LaneWatch™

You’ll be forced to pay extra for Adaptive Cruise Control with the Nissan Sentra, while the Honda Civic equips it as standard. The LaneWatch feature is a Honda exclusive, so don’t expect to take advantage of comparable technology with any Nissan Sentra trim level.

The Honda Civic Overpowers and Outperforms the Nissan Sentra

It’s hard to seriously consider the Nissan Sentra after taking a closer look at the Honda Civic. You’ll find it available alongside tempting monthly specials from our showroom, so feel free to get in touch today if you’d like to find out more.
