Does the Nissan Sentra offer more than the Ford Focus?

If fuel economy is a major concern for you, and it probably should be, then the Nissan has your back. Not only does the Sentra get more miles to the gallon on the highway and in the city, but it also holds a full gallon more fuel than the Ford Focus meaning you can avoid the gas station for even longer.

Cruise control is a feature that we have come to expect in all cars. It was invented over 50 years ago and has been a common feature in cars for decades. Yet surprisingly, the Ford Focus doesn’t include the feature standard. Not only does the Nissan Sentra have cruise control as a standard feature, but it also utilizes convenient steering wheel controls for easy operation.

You could almost forgive the Ford Focus for all of this if not for the huge disparity in passenger room. Usually this category is a close call, but when it comes to these two, the Nissan comes out as the clear winner. Trust us, 5 cubic-feet of extra room will not go unnoticed.

If the Sentra sounds like your dream vehicle, then you should come down to see us in Wilkesboro. The McNeill Nissan inventory has a wide range of Sentra options for you to try, and we can help you find the trim level that will best suit your needs.
