The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Nissan Sentra spiffs up its performance in SR Turbo trim, but it's still more a need-to-buy than an want-to-buy car. The 2017 Toyota Corolla takes a well-deserved bow this year for 50 years of drama-free commuting. This model is entirely acceptable, and we're thankful for an available suite of advanced safety tech.
