In Canada, the SER is actually cheaper than the US figure quoted here, and the SPEC-V is 6000$ less than a GTI, 10 000$ less than WRX ... giving it much value. And Sentras cost next to nothing to insure ... sleepers!
What the Sentra offers is rear-seat room for a car guy with three kids, two in boosters. The Spec-V's thirst for premium made me go with a manual 2.0S, and that car's suspension copes very well with the broken pavement of my commute.
