The Honda Civic is known the world over as a well-rounded car that seems to do everything well. The 2021 editions of this sedan compare favorably to the 2021 Nissan Sentra in many ways, just like it does with its other competition. Let's review some of the reasons that drivers continue to opt for the Civic over other cars.
Whether you select a 2021 Honda Civic LX with the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder base engine or another trim with the available 1.5-liter turbocharged powertrain, you'll experience efficient performance with this new ride. The Civic's standard engine outperforms the Nissan Sentra's in horsepower, and that's not even considering Honda's even more powerful turbo engine! For 2021, the Sentra is only available with its standard 2.0-liter engine, which may not cut it for some drivers.
Like other Honda models, the 2021 Civic seems to make better use of space for passengers and cargo. This compact car is anything but small inside, where there is ample space for up to five occupants, plus an impressive 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk. Nissan's new Sentra offers just 14.3 cubic feet for cargo, which is about average for this segment. Meanwhile, the Civic's trunk space is more like that of a mid-size car.
Dothan, AL, area car buyers can rely on Sam Boswell Honda to access the 2021 Civic lineup that includes such popular trims as the Sport, EX and Touring. With more trim options than the Nissan Sentra, drivers will find plenty of choices for their ideal new car within the Honda Civic lineup!
