Here's where the Nissan Sentra is a letdown. Its EPA ratings, of just 24 mpg city, 31 highway, are actually worse than those of many mid-size sedans—and even when you get the more efficient CVT, ratings rise only somewhat, to 27/34. The performance-oriented SE-R Spec.V rates only 21/28—figures that, on the highway are beat by a number of larger V-6 performance coupes.
Gas mileage is one of the top considerations for small-car shoppers—especially those who are on a tight budget and likely to consider entry 2012 Sentra models with the 2.0-liter engine.
