Cars can typically be placed into one of two broad categories. There are vehicles that are environmentally friendly and there are those that are performance-driven.

But a third category exists that encompasses both of these values: Nissans.

When it comes to designing cars that can leave behind some serious tire marks but not a carbon footprint, Nissan drives in a lane all its own. In fact, Nissan was named the “Best Environmental Performance Brand” for 2017 by Automotive Science Group. And two prime examples of that kind of versatility are the 2017 Nissan Versa and the 2017 Nissan Sentra.

Whether it’s mpg or mph you’re after, Nissan provides a pair of options that deliver on both. The upper trim levels of the Nissan Sentra treat drivers to 188 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque on behalf of a direct-injection, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine equipped with three distinct driving modes. Meanwhile, the Sentra offers up to 31 highway mpg with that engine and up to 37 highway mpg at the base trim.

The fuel economy of the Sentra is topped only by that of the Nissan Versa and the 39 highway mpg produced at four of the five trim levels. And don’t be fooled by the Versa’s 109 horsepower. The small and light stature of the vehicle makes for a zippy and agile ride ideal for city driving.

So with both cars delivering on both performance and eco-friendliness, how can consumers narrow down their options any further?

With a sleek and sporty exterior, the 2017 Nissan Sentra arrives in style courtesy of a honeycomb grille, LED headlights, and 17” alloy wheels. Drivers drawn to a new Nissan Sentra for sale don’t settle for simply getting there; they want to look good while doing it.  

The interior of the Sentra speaks to a more luxurious taste as well with available leather, premium sport cloth, or synthetic suede seats, steering wheels, and shifting knobs. Advanced technological features include Bluetooth®, Siri® Eyes Free controls, a Bose® Premium Audio system, and more for a truly luxurious experience.    

The 2017 Nissan Versa

Put simply, the 2017 Nissan Versa just makes sense. A surprising amount of cabin room couples with 14.9 cu. ft. of trunk space to make the Versa suitable for long trips with multiple passengers on board. And with the capability to drive up to 400 miles between fill-ups, all that room to stretch out will come in handy. Add in safety features such as an advanced airbag system and Vehicle Dynamic Control, and the Versa is equally as big on safety.  

But perhaps the Versa’s biggest selling point is its price. With new Nissan Versas for sale at incredibly affordable prices, this sedan is as friendly on the pocket as it is on the environment.
