The value story remains strong
Car and Driver


The 2012 Sentra is a decent high-value commuter car, at around $17k for the base 2.0-liter Sentra. On those models, standard equipment includes power windows and locks, air conditioning, tilt steering, split-folding backseats, and a 160-watt  sound system all stanard.

Sentra 2.0 S or 2.0 SR trims get you a few more extras like a center console, keyless entry, and a trip computer, while the high-end 2.0 SL adds leather and Bluetooth; but the issue with both of these models is that they cost a lot more and only come with the CVT. And the 2012 Sentra 2.0 S can now be optioned with a navigation system that includes five-inch touch screen and USB/iPod connectivity. A special-edition package on the SR also loads it with popular options.

At the top of the range, the SE-R gets a sport-tuned suspension, big 17-inch alloy wheels, special badging, sport seats, and a number of other extras. The Spec V takes the performance package another step, with extra bracing, upgraded brakes, summer performance tires, driving lamps, and exclusive lower bodywork.

A Rockford Fosgate audio system is among the top options, as is a navigation system with five-inch screen, SD card reader, and XM Satellite Radio. Intelligent Key keyless entry and start is among other extras, and full leather seating is available on the SE-R models. The audio system offered on both top models includes USB connectivity and a full color screen.

 

 

Conclusion

Whether considering one of the most affordable models or a loaded SE-R Spec V, the 2012 Sentra is a relatively good value.

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.
