2014 Nissan Versa vs. Nissan Sentra vs. Nissan Altima
When looking at any automaker’s vehicle lineup, it will be immediately apparent that there is some overlap between models as it relates to needs and wants. Among the roster of Nissan vehicles, the impressive line of compact sedans reflects a wide variety of benefits, capabilities and potential deciding factors that may influence your next purchase at Robbins Nissan.
As the name would suggest, the Versa aims for versatility, and not just in functionality, but also for its owners’ pocketbooks. The smallest of Nissan’s sedans, the Versa offers buyers a dependable, economical vehicle at an unthreatening price. While it doesn’t offer all the standard amenities of more expensive models, it rewards buyers with a comfortable, spacious interior and exceptional trunk space, and has many attractive tech and convenience options. It is a terrific option for students and commuters alike, an inspiring entry in a vehicle segment that sometimes lacks it.
The Nissan Sentra has long acted as the bridge between the straight-forward economy vehicle and its luxury compact relatives. Though the Sentra comes at an unthreatening price, it is by no means lacking: sleek styling, a well-appointed and comfortable cabin and upscale convenience features greet drivers and passengers alike. The Sentra is a more powerful option than the Versa, making it perhaps more well-fitted for young families and drivers who equally value refined finishing and jaw-dropping fuel economy.
The most refined of Nissan’s compact sedans pushes the segment to its logical conclusion; it is powerful off the line and draped in upscale materials throughout, all while still maintaining exceptional fuel economy. The Altima clearly makes luxury standard, including keyless entry/ignition and Bluetooth phone and audio on all vehicles, with terrific upgrades such as a 5.0-inch touchscreen display, rearview camera and NissanConnect Apps available on most models. The Nissan Altima is well-suited to most drivers, including families, commuters and those who would like luxury at an unimposing price.
Regardless of your compact sedan needs, there is a Nissan to fit your lifestyle, and the friendly and courteous sales staff at Robbins Nissan is dedicated to helping you find it.
