Crash-test ratings aren't yet available for the 2013 Nissan Sentra from the IIHS, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives it four out of five stars overall, with four stars in frontal and rollover crashes, and five stars for side impacts. But standard safety equipment in the Sentra includes front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, as well as roof-mounted side-curtain bags, plus electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes. And moms will be reassured to know that there are two full LATCH connectors in the Sentra's back seat (and three child-seat upper tether anchors).

Also standard is a new Easy Fill Tire Alert system that sounds the horn when you’re inflating the tires to signal the recommended pressure.

The new Sentra’s lower beltline and somewhat higher seating position relative to that allow impressive outward visibility. And with the available navigation system comes a rearview camera system.

Conclusion

Safety features are typical for the class, although outward visibility is better than expected.

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.
