In the Driveway: 2013 Nissan Sentra SL

2013 Nissan Sentra SL at the mall

In the driveway this week is Nissan's new-for-2013 Sentra. I had a 1999 Sentra, and this is way different. First impressions are that it has a bright, airy cabin, solid build quality, and stylish lines. It's been a long time since anyone referred to a Sentra as stylish. And while its design isn't going to set the world on fire, its looks are inoffensive if not classy.

This car's got the 1.8 liter engine mated to a CVT, a surprisingly good stereo, and plenty of room. It's quite comfortable, but is not the epitome of excitement. Seats need more bolstering.

That's it for now, but a full review to follow. Stay tuned.
