Finding competitive car insurance for a Nissan Sentra depends on many factors such as your birth date, your credit status, and citations or violations on your driving record. Drivers in Texas will pay around $1,343 per year for Sentra insurance, but that cost is using a 50-year-old single male driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $100 deductibles.
Odds are that you're not a 50-year-old male, married instead of single, or maybe you want more liability coverage than is required by law in Texas. Everone's needs are different, and this illustrates why the best method for finding the cheapest insurance price for your Nissan is to compare as many rates as possible.
Your vehicle's trim level tends to have a direct effect on the coverage cost, so the rate you pay to insure a Sentra 2 model will be $254 less than the insurance cost for the more costly Sentra SE-R SPEC V version, as shown in the chart below.
