Being a car enthusiast, chances are that even you did not know about an all-new Nissan Sentra was introduced for 2013. I certainly had no idea until Nissan lent me this little car for a review. And that’s a good thing, judging by how much negative press Toyota has received about its new 2014 Corolla. Since an overwhelming majority of people who write about cars are car enthusiasts, they cannot possibly comprehend the idea of a new, reasonably priced, fuel efficient, and affordable compact sedan – their answer is always Miata, and hence the bad press for the Corolla.
I have put all of my preconceived notions aside when I got into this car. I did not go to Nissan’s website, I did not read any press releases, and I did not look at any pictures. I had no idea how much power it has, what the brake set-up was, what kind of steering it has, or from where the chassis originates. I put myself into the shoes of the typical potential buyer of this car, and I just did not care about those things.
I just got into it and started driving.
