Contemporary economy sedans have managed to shed the stigma of being cramped for anyone in the ballpark of median height and build. Thanks to cars like the 2009 Nissan Sentra, full-size adults no longer have to sacrifice space and comfort for affordability. The Sentra's interior roominess is a product of its tall hatchback underpinnings -- its platform is derived from the Mégane, a family-oriented, European-market hatch engineered by Nissan's partner Renault.
The 2009 Nissan Sentra Sedan is powered by a base 2.0-liter Inline-4 with 140 hp. Other available engines include a 2.5-liter Inline-4 with 177 hp and a 2.5-liter Inline-4 with 200 hp.
