The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Nissan Sentra focuses on comfort, spaciousness and style over driving dynamics in an attempt to push this economy car up-market. The 2013 Honda Civic takes a step back in the right direction with an impressive feature set, a sophisticated new look, and much-improved refinement.
