Serving Groton, CT

Do you expect spirited performance, modern features, and stunning style from your next compact car? The Honda Civic and the Nissan Sentra are lovely models that have been directly competing for drivers’ attention for decades. Now that you are ready to buy your next car, you need to decide between these popular models.


The 2020 Honda Civic has a modern personality throughout its exterior. At the front end, the bejeweled headlights are integrated with the double-bar grille. The lights are mounted over foglamps with metallic accent pieces. Sculpted fenders, rolling side contours, and a swooping roof complete the Civic’s look. In comparison, the 2020 Nissan Sentra has a sharp angle down the nose. The hood’s definition trends into the U-shaped grille. Both the foglamps and the headlights point sharply toward the grille. The sides show definition over the wheels and smooth surfaces on the door panels.


The Civic’s spacious interior may be outfitted with ventilated leather seats and a dual-tone color scheme in select trim levels. This car is offered in both sedan and coupe body styles, and both styles have a split-fold rear seat design for added functionality. The touch display screen sits in front of the center stack at an angle for easy access. The 2020 Nissan Sentra’s interior has a side center console and a molded center stack. The dashboard trends down as it flows into the center stack. The touch display screen sits over the round air vents and on top of the dashboard.


Differences between the 2020 Civic and the 2020 Sentra continue throughout their performance abilities. The Civic’s base powertrain is a 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter engine. The higher-level Civic trims are outfitted with a 1.5-liter turbo, 174-horsepower trim. In comparison, the Sentra is available with a 149-horsepower, 2.0-liter engine across the three trim levels.
