Expert Quotes:

The Sentra was never a good-looking car, and the minimal fascia tweaks added by the Spec V package do little to change that.
Car and Driver

Like other cars in this segment...isn't much to look at.

overly generous height and long wheelbase conspire to create some odd proportions, and to our eyes, the resulting design looks awkward and narrow
Autoblog


The 2011 Nissan Sentra looks like a shorter, smaller car than it really is from a distance. That's mainly due to its rather tall proportions broadly arched roofline—which also tends to look better in person than in pictures.

Many of the Sentra's cues, like the flared-outward headlamps and prominent flanks at the top of the rear fenders, are borrowed from Nissan's larger Altima and Maxima—although it does look a lot like the long-ago-discontinued Saturn Ion from the outside. In SE-R and SE-R Spec.V trim, the Sentra gets a slightly dressier appearance that some might prefer, however.

Inside, the look isn't particularly inspired, but it feels modern and straightforward. The instrument-panel design is chunky and a bit more angular than you'll find in other new vehicles; a center stack of controls flows downward, housing the shifter, while upright seating affords a good view out.

Conclusion

The 2011 Nissan Sentra isn't unattractive, but it's certainly no standout for styling.

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.
