What our customers are saying about the Nissan Sentra
Abdulrahman - Find pre owned Sentra S cars in UAE is easy and finding a buyer is just as accessible for the right price. I plan to keep mine for a year as its spacious and has really good fuel economy. Pros: Fuel and reliability. Cons: Options inside and power.
Bader - When I buy import Nissan Sentra SV, I also looked at Honda 1.8 ivtec model but this one not good compared to second hand Sentra. Fuel and fixing are very cheap which is good for me. Pros: HFuel and space. Cons: Old looks.
Khalil - These cars used are great! Excellent price and in 1.8 SL trim the Sentra can’t be beaten when it comes to gas mileage. It even has enough interior options to keep everyone entertained on long journeys. Pros: Rear legroom and fuel economy. Cons: Power.
Five reasons to buy a Nissan Sentra
The Nissan Sentra is a Japanese brand; Japanese cars have excellent resale value in Dubai, and the Sentra falls in that category even in the export market.
It’s larger than the Sunny but smaller than the Altima but still provides enough space for five passengers.
With its small presence and 1.8L engine, it has excellent fuel economy.
Reliability won’t be an issue as it’s a Japanese vehicle leading to mechanic trips short and sweet.
It may appear tiny in the back, but there is ample room for tall passengers in the rear giving the Sentra an extra edge when it comes to the buying process.
About the Nissan Sentra
Debuting in 1982, it wasn’t until 2013 until the GCC received the vehicle meaning we missed out on the coupe and boxy versions that were readily available around the world. Serving as the company's entry-level sedan model to rival those from around the world as the years progressed it was elevated to a higher tier and sits in between the Altima and Sunny. There are even rumours of a NISMO version on the horizon which gets us excited as it should with you too.
