Expert Review Rankings

In our effort to be an objective reviewer of the 2016 Nissan Sentra, Honda Civic, and Toyota Corolla models, we turned to Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com, one of the premier sources for expert reviews on new vehicles. In general, the first category of a car's specifications that you are going to want to consider is performance. The expert reviewers on KBB.com rated the driving dynamics of the Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla, and the results are quite telling. For driving dynamics, the 2016 Corolla scored 7.7, but the 2016 Sentra scored an impressive 8.6.

Another point worth noting in this comparison between the Sentra, Civic, and Corolla is manufacturer's suggested retail price or MSRP. This number is important because it provides you with a baseline to gauge the value of a new vehicle. The Honda Civic, by far, had the highest MSRP at nearly $20 thousand. The Toyota Corolla came in second regarding expensiveness at over $18 thousand. Meanwhile, the Nissan Sentra was the lowest priced and most affordable of the three sedans regarding MSRP, with a cost of just over $17 thousand. However, what if you wanted an upgraded trim level? The Civic has some nice models like the Touring trim, which can run you nearly $28 thousand. Meanwhile, the highly impressive and refined 2016 Sentra SL trim comes in closer to $25 thousand. Thus, with the new 2016 Nissan Sentra, you are getting great performance for an attractive price relative to the competition.
