Here at O’Brien Nissan of Bloomington, we have several Nissan cars on our lot, including the one and only, 2018 Nissan Sentra. We even put this vehicle head-to-head against the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze, so you can see why the Nissan Sentra takes home the gold medal. You can experience it all on a fun-filled test drive with one of our team members!

Before we dive into anything else, let’s explain how the Nissan Sentra takes the lead in terms of performance. The available 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain generates a satisfying 188 horsepower. You’ll also have ventilated front disc brakes at your disposal that keep themselves cool during stop-and-go traffic. On the other hand, the Chevrolet Cruze has an available 1.6-liter turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engine that only produces a measly 137 horsepower, making your drives a tad sluggish. While this compact car also comes with front disc brakes, they aren’t ventilated, so they might overheat during rush-hour.

Additionally, you’ll discover that the Nissan Sentra comes standard with large and in charge 16-inch steel wheels. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about the Chevrolet Cruze. This vehicle comes standard with smaller 15-inch steel wheels, so you’ll have to upgrade if want the Chevy Cruze to sit atop bigger wheels. Inside, both compact cars have an available Bose® premium sound system, making you feel like you’re in the first row at a concert, but the Nissan Sentra differs because you’ll also have two subwoofers, so you can rock out with ease.

Now that you know why the Nissan Sentra wins this heated battle against the Chevrolet Cruze, it’s time to stop by your Nissan car dealership near Normal, IL during our business hours. We want you to see this compact car’s performance capabilities, design, and entertainment features first-hand!
