Comparing the 2017 Veloster and 2017 Sentra Differences
The truth is, similarities between the two models are few and far between. One such similarity is the nearly identical horsepower each car's standard engine puts out. But, looking beyond the standard power plants, the Veloster can provide drivers with far more power overall thanks to its available 201-horsepower turbo engine, while the Sentra's available engine options exceed no more than 188 horsepower.
Of course, we have to talk about tech too. These days, the high tech equipment a car comes with is as important as just about anything else, and the Veloster surely excels in this area thanks in part to its standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay infotainment systems, something you won't find on the Sentra. Other standard tech features for the Veloster that you won't find standard on the Sentra include daytime running lights, heated side mirrors and a 6-speaker sound system.
So, if you're someone who wants the latest technology, plenty of cargo space and a thrilling drive, it seems clear in this comparison between the 2017 Veloster vs 2017 Sentra that the Hyundai option easily tops Nissan's sedan. To learn more or to take a test drive, contact us at Coastal Hyundai.
