2016 Nissan Sentra vs 
2016 Honda Civic
If you're shopping for a fuel-efficient new compact sedan that offers the latest technology, then the all-new 2016 Nissan Sentra should already be at the top of your list. Both the Nissan Sentra and Honda Civic have received major redesigns in 2016. 
Features
Both the 2016 Nissan Sentra and Honda Civic come equipped with all of the advanced standard features you would expect from a vehicle today such as bluetooth, remote keyless entry, full power features and cruise control. However, the 2016 Nissan Sentra has a range of features that you won't find on the 2016 Honda Civic. The Sentra's advanced telematics system, NissanConnect, uses a combination of smartphone and GPS technologies to provide drivers with added safety, security and convenience. The Sentra also exclusively offers Easy-Fill Tire Alert that flashes the hazard lights while the tires are being filled and honks once the tires have reached the proper air pressure level. The Sentra also features a Rear Cross Traffic Alert system which utilizes sensor technologies to let drivers know when a vehicle is approaching from either side.
 
Starting Price
Most drivers purchase compact sedans because of their value. Of course, some compact sedans offer greater value for your money than others. the 2016 Nissan Sentra has a starting MSRP of $16,780 with a manual transmission, or a few hundred dollars more to have a Sentra paired with Nissan's advanced Xtronic CVT drive train. You'll see that the 2016 Honda Civic starts at a higher MSRP of $18,640, and that's still only with a manual transmission. If you want Honda Civic LX with the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder and CVT transmission, the price rises to $19,440. In other words, if you want the efficiency and smooth shifting that a CVT continuously variable transmission offers, you can save around $2,000 by choosing the 2016 Nissan Sentra over Honda Civic.
