5 reasons to buy the 2015 Nissan Sentra

1. Roomy interior

For a small sedan that's anything but small on the inside, the 2015 Nissan Sentra is an ideal fit. You'll find seating for five passengers in the cabin along with 96 cu-ft of passenger volume — this allows all occupants to relax and enjoy the journey with 42.5 inches of front seat legroom and 37.4 inches of rear seat legroom. For families, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats and a tether-only connection for the rear middle seat.

2. Versatile standard engine

If you are looking for a daily driver that's kind to your wallet, the 2015 Nissan Sentra has the perfect engine for the job. Under the hood of all 2015 Nissan Sentra models is a 1.8L four-cylinder motor, producing 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. Most impressively though, in standard configuration with a six-speed manual transmission, this engine helps the 2015 Nissan Sentra achieve an EPA-estimated 30 mpg combined, which increases to 32 mpg combined when paired with the optional continuously-variable automatic transmission.

Add in the FE+ S trim, which includes underbody aerodynamic deflectors, and that figure tops out at an impressive EPA-estimated 33 mpg combined, 30 mpg in the city, and 38 mpg on the highway.

3. Abundance of cargo storage space

Not only can the 2015 Nissan Sentra fit all your family and friends inside with ease, but it offers more than enough cargo space for all their respective luggage too. You get 15.1 cu-ft of luggage volume in the trunk in standard configuration, which is already plenty enough for everyday requirements like grocery shopping. However, should you need more storage space, the 60/40 split-folding rear seats can be folded flat to allow for larger items to be transported with ease.

4. Solid selection of standard features

2015 Nissan Sentra models feature more standard equipment across each trim than previous model years, meaning you get more on base models than you might expect. The base S model's suite of standard features includes air-conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, and full power accessories — with fog lights, illuminated door seals, accent lighting, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror available as options. Step up to the SV trim to get all of these features plus extras like push-button ignition, upgraded cloth upholstery, and a rearview camera.

5. Plenty of tech features available

The feature list right across the 2015 Nissan Sentra lineup is stacked, particularly when it comes to technology and gadgets. Base S models start with a four-speaker sound system with auxiliary audio ports and Bluetooth phone connectivity, with the SV adding a 5-inch color infotainment display and the NissanConnect® smartphone integration system. Meanwhile, optional on the SR and SL trims is the Premium package with an enhanced eight-speaker Bose® sound system, and the Navigation package with voice recognition, a navigation system and a bigger 5.8-inch touchscreen display.
