The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
5.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevy Cruze offers lots of compelling reasons to select it, but we’d like to see more safety tech on its standard equipment roster. The 2018 Nissan Sentra is a compact car that does what it says on the package: it’s roomy, quiet, and relatively affordable.
