The EPA estimates fuel economy numbers for the 2. Those figures may not impress the owner of even a bone-stock Jeep Wrangler Sport, but they're far and away more impressive than anything else in this test. The fifth-generation Sentra, produced from toalso remains a good option for buyers. Sadly, those things only combined to impart false confidence in what turned out to be the second-lowest-riding of the "true" compacts meaning Kona excluded in this group.
The Sentra featured a four-wheel independent suspension, with front disc and rear drum brakes as standard equipment. Body styles again included sedans, coupes, hatchbacks, and wagons, at entry-level E, mid-level XE, and upper-level GXE trim levels, as well as new sport-oriented SE coupe.
Currently in the midst of its sixth generation, the Sentra received a mid-generation refresh inwhich included exterior updates, additional options packages, and a new 2. We set off for Woodstock, Virginia, to see how much trouble we could get into and out of with our charges.
One of the Sentra's big selling points during its first few years was its fuel economy. New options included a navigation system and a backup camera. By all rights, it should have placed dead-last.

It got excellent marks for utility, with a very robust interior equipment offering and tons of hatch space, but lost points for its take-it-or-leave-it most of us opted for the latter exterior styling. In a way, though, it served a useful purpose.
So we set off, expecting to slip, slide, stick, beach, bury and bog down. The Sentra also delivers good fuel economy and an affordable pricetag.

Each journalist got a minute stint in each other vehicle in the pack, and two such sessions with the vehicle he sadly, no women answered the call to judge drove to the event--starting and finishing the day in the car which he would later fully evaluate on-road.
