We’re lucky here at Nissan of Melbourne to have three of the best sedans on the market right here on our lot. The Altima, Maxima and Sentra each bring their own strengths and benefits to the table, and they’re perfect for any type of driver or situation! Sometimes it can be tricky to decide which sedan is best for you, so we put together a little comparison to help you out!
Nissan Altima vs. Maxima vs. Sentra
Below is a table that shows some specifics about the current Altima, Maxima and Sentra models. True to form in the Nissan model line, many of their other available features overlap, but there are some very distinctive differences between all three that make them great for you! Check out how these three sedan kings stack up.
|Engine||2.5-Liter Inline 4 or 3.5-liter V6||3.5-liter V6||1.8-liter Inline 4|
|Horsepower/Torque||179-270 / 177-251||300/261||124/125|
|Fuel Efficiency (City/Highway MPG)||27/39||22/30||30/40|
|Bluetooth connection?||Standard through NissanConnect||Standard through NissanConnect||Standard through NissanConnect|
|Top Safety Pick?||Yes (Plus)||Yes (Plus)||Yes (Plus)|
The main difference between these sedans lie in their engines, and in turn the amount of power they can produce. Vehicles like the Sentra and Altima are better suited for professionals and students looking for efficient and practical vehicles, while the Maxima is much more comfortable on the open road, thanks to a beefy engine waiting for you to unleash everything that it can do.
Safety features on the Altima, Maxima and Sentra
All in all, we understand that your number one concern in a family sedan is the knowledge that everyone inside will be kept out of harm’s way. For their efforts, the Altima, Maxima and Sentra were named IIHS Top Safety Picks this year! A big reason for this is the number of safety features that all these sedans have available. Some of them are:
- Forward Emergency Braking
- Blind Spot Warning
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Rearview Camera
- Antilock Brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
- Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)
