Nissan Sentra Sedan SV vs. Nissan Altima: Comparison

Are you looking to buy a new sedan, the Nissan Sentra and Nissan Altima are two rides that you should have on your list? With efficient technology, spacious cabins, and outstanding style, both sedans provide the fun and comfort that’ll make you look forward to your daily commute.

Which one is right for you? Let’s go over the differences in the Nissan lineup (sedan), so you know what to look out for before going for a test drive.


One of the most notable differences between the Sentra and Altima is their engines. The Sentra has a 2.0L four-cylinder under the hood. Meanwhile, the Altima comes with two engine options – a 2.5L four-cylinder and a 2.0L Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo™) four-cylinder.

The Nissan Altima also offers intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) that provides you with a boost of confidence when the snow starts to fly.


The Nissan Altima is a bit more spacious (especially for rear-seat passengers), with 2.6 inches more rear shoulder room and just over one extra inch of hip room. Also, the Altima trunk is slightly larger, with 15.4 cubic feet of space versus 14.3 cubic feet in the Sentra. Front and rear legroom is similar between the two models.

While you can find a variety of seat upholstery choices in either model, depending on the trim you choose, the Nissan Sentra is uniquely available with distinctive tan quilted leather with the Sentra Premium Package.

A six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat is standard in both the Altima and Sentra, but the Altima is available with an eight-way power driver’s seat and four-way power front passenger’s seat.


While both Nissan sedans feature a distinctive V-motion grille and “floating” roof design, whether you prefer the Sentra or Altima will majorly depend on your personal preferences.

Both sedans are available in a Black Edition trim with a bold black styling. If you’re looking for a two-tone exterior with a black roof, the Nissan Sentra will definitely be perfect for you. The Altima is available with slightly larger 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels.


Both sedans are standard with an 8-inch Nissan Connect touchscreen in higher trims, a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a 7-inch Advanced Drive-Assist display in the instrument panel.


Both sedans are available with a premium Bose sound system. The Nissan Altima SL is equipped with the Nissan Door to Door navigation with five-year access to premium traffic while the Sentra SR has a NissanConnect Wi-Fi hotspot.
