Mid-size or compact: Which Nissan is right for you?
Share this article
If you're in the market for a new sedan and seek the time-tested quality that Nissan is known for, then there are most likely two names at the top of your list: Sentra and Altima. But which of these used Nissan cars is right for your specific needs? Allow EchoPark Automotive to shed some light on this heavily debated subject. The first thing to note is that these two models exist in different segments of the automotive industry.
The Nissan Sentra is a compact sedan, meaning that it comes in at a lower price point typically due to the fact that it's a smaller vehicle that's made with more affordable materials. Furthermore, compact cars tend to feature fewer premium amenities that their mid-size counterparts sport which also contributes to their more affordable nature. Simply put, the Nissan Sentra is a fantastic car if you're driving on a budget or simply don't require the comfort and convenience features that other drivers crave.
The Nissan Altima , meanwhile, is a mid-size sedan. It's slightly larger in stature and is made from higher-end materials on the interior that give it a slightly more luxurious feel. The Altima also tends to feature many high-end safety and convenience features. So while they tend to come at a higher cost than the Sentra, many drivers feel that this is worth it.
At the end of the day, though, it really all comes down to your own personal preference. If you're interested in seeing our selection of used Nissan models for sale, be sure to visit any one of our showrooms serving the greater Denver area today.
