2016 Chevy Cruze vs 2016 Nissan Sentra

Exciting events are afoot in the compact sedan segment at Jack Burford Chevy. That’s because our popular Cruze model, an appealing blend of style and efficiency, has been fully redesigned for the new model year, and the results are nothing short of exceptional. However, for the savvy Lexington-area driver, it isn’t enough to simply see some photos and call it a day. We want to know how it stacks up against its competition as well, and that’s precisely what we’re here to provide. Specifically, how does the 2016 Chevy Cruze compare to the 2016 Nissan Sentra, one of its longest-running rivals?

From the outset, it’s clear that although both the Cruze and Sentra receive style enhancements for the new model year, the Cruze is simply playing by a different set of rules than its Nissan competitor. Although its base price is significantly lower, the Cruze presents its buyer with performance profile that the Sentra can’t hope to match. Employing a 1.4L Turbo four-cylinder, the Cruze achieves 153 hp, 177 lb-ft of torque and 40 highway mpg. Compare this to the output of the Sentra, which rides a 1.8L four-cylinder on its way to 130 hp, 128 lb-ft of torque and 36 mpg. Factor in the terrific tech features, including the built-in 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, and it becomes clear that the Cruze is operating on a different plane than the Sentra is, and is doing so at a lower sticker price.
