While shopping for a new compact car, you have undoubtedly found that both the 2019 Honda Civic and 2019 Nissan Sentra meet many of your criteria including a 4-cylinder engine, and a continuously-variable transmission. Keep reading to find out what features make one of these rides a more desirable choice for your active lifestyle around Brunswick, Georgia or Tipp City and Dayton, Ohio.

Where the 2019 Honda Civic Fits Your Style

The differences start with the overall design. The Honda Civic enjoyed a complete redesign for the 2019 model year, breathing a more angular appearance to its previously iconic looks. The front fascia features a unique splitter that wraps around the side, meeting the sculpted doors, and culminating in a rear lid spoiler. Besides the good looks found on the sedan, you can opt for the athletic coupe or a versatile hatchback with room for extra gear to explore your neighborhood around Beavercreek. Should you opt for the Nissan Sentra, your options are limited to a sedan that hasn’t seen any significant revisions for over six years.

Safety Comes Standard

On every 2019 Honda Civic, you will find the Honda Sensing suite. Using multiple sensors all around the vehicle, it helps you to avoid incidents on your daily drive through Springfield with lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking. Should you become distracted and allow your wheels to wander out of your lane on your way to Waycross, the steering wheel will nudge you back in line while keeping a secure distance from you and the next vehicle. While Nissan offers similar safety innovations, their driver-assist features are all an upgrade on the Sentra.

Feeling the Difference on the Road

You might think that all subcompact cars will deliver an uninspiring ride. However, the 2019 Honda Civic LX has a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, offers 158 horsepower, and can accelerate up to 60 a full second faster than the 2019 Nissan Sentra. Paired with a multi-link front suspension, the 2019 Honda Civic LX is fun to drive. The 2019 Nissan Sentra S struggles to get out of its way with only 130 horsepower. If you want to enjoy your Waycross commute with a responsive powertrain, the choice of 2, 4, or 5-door body style, and some serious upgrades for your safety, the 2019 Honda Civic is a clear choice.
