Sentra vs. Civic: Variety and Pricing

Between the 2022 Nissan Sentra vs. Honda Civic, the Sentra’s biggest advantage is its price point. At $19,510 MSRP*, it begins just slightly under the $21,900 MSRP of the Honda Civic sedan. However, both lineups are affordable – especially when factoring in the many offers and incentives available. So over the length of your contract, the price difference is extremely small. And when you choose the Civic, you have much more variety in trims and body styles – including the sporty Si and the sleek hatchback. That means you can get exactly what you want.
