Expert Quotes:

The interior is among the best in the biz in terms of build quality and materials.
AutoWeek

The range of adjustability of the driver seat, however, leaves something to be desired — it goes just far enough forward for a 5-foot-4 female to comfortably reach the pedals. Tall folks didn't find much to complain about, though.
Edmunds

a slight bit of scratchiness over 4000 rpm
Motor Trend

The interior is straight-forward with good quality materials and plastics trim finishes throughout.
AutoWeek

interior materials are just too cheap

Compared to most other models of its size and price, the 2011 Nissan Sentra has a delightful level of refinement. And that observation extends to seating ride quality, and interior noise.

While other compact models are offered as coupes or hatchbacks, the Sentra is only offered as a sedan; it's a very well-designed cabin, though, with generous appointments even in base 2.0 and 2.0 S models. Materials feel about right for this price range—strictly budget-grade, but tasteful—while all the examples our editors have seen have been very well put together.

Thanks to the rather high roofline in the Sentra, this small sedan's interior feels very spacious. While the seats themselves are flat and unsupportive, with padding that just won't work for long trips, most will be happy with the space and the driving position. The back seat, too, is a place good enough for adults for a trip across town.

Ride quality is also surprisingly good in the Sentra; it rides nearly as well as the larger Altima, with a somewhat soft but well-controlled attitude, though it can have a little bit of small-car pitchiness on the highway. Top SE-R Spec.V models are not only firmer, but harsher and louder over pockmarked surfaces.

Conclusion

A roomy interior, a nice, settled ride, and good isolation of road and wind noise make the 2011 Nissan Sentra very comfortable.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
