Sport Performance, Sedan Practicality

The Honda Civic is famous for mixing power and practicality to deliver balanced performance, and it does it again for 2016. It’s equipped with a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that generates 158 horsepower. There’s also a new 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that gets 174 horsepower. Both engines feature their own continuously variable transmission that caters to their individual performance so you get seamless shifts for a smooth and efficient performance.

The Nissan Sentra comes with a 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine as well as a continuously variable transmission for a seamless performance. However, its powertrain only produces up to 130 horsepower.

Cutting-Edge Technologies

For 2016, the Honda Civic steps up its automotive technology game with a variety of all-new and upgraded features to make the most of your ride. This year’s model is now compatible with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. They essentially integrate your smartphone to the vehicle so you can receive texts, calls, and emails and use a selection of mobile apps while you’re behind the wheel.

A driver information interface has also been added for convenience. Located just behind the steering wheel, this feature displays a series of call, music, and vehicle details within your line of sight so you get the information you need with minimal distractions.

The latest model year of the Nissan Sentra doesn’t include an advanced driver display screen, but it does provide NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps. This can pull up directions to your next destination as well as select mobile apps.

Advanced Safety Features

Both the Honda Civic and the Nissan Sentra include a sturdy body structure, airbags, and a number of performance stability systems for your safety. In terms of driver assist technologies, the 2016 Civic welcomes the brand-new Honda Sensing™ system. This suite of safety features includes Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, and a Collision Mitigation Braking System™. On top of that, the Civic offers Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and Honda LaneWatch™ for added safety.

Safety for the Nissan Sentra consists of performance systems such as Brake Assist, Vehicle Dynamic Control, and Electronic Brake Distribution. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have driver assist safety technologies.

Unlike the Nissan Sentra, the 2016 Honda Civic is powerful, cutting edge, and redefining the modern sedan.
