Only one vehicle has been around on the Nissan lineup longer than the Sentra, meaning its one of the most iconic models the brand has to offer. While it was a subcompact car from 1982 to 1999, today the 2020 Nissan Sentra represents an excellent option in the compact sedan segment here in the Virginia Beach VA area. Excitingly, this year marks the very first for the nameplate’s eighth generation, having undergone a full redesign leading into the year. We couldn’t be more pleased with the all-new Sentra and are excited to share some of the details regarding what’s new in the sedan!
The first thing you’ll notice as being new in the 2020 Nissan Sentra is, of course, its exterior design. Built on a completely new platform, you might notice that the body is lower and wider than previous iterations, with a sleeker and more sophisticated design courtesy of sharp creases and linework. On the inside, the cabin is more premium than ever, with a heavy attention to detail and craftsmanship throughout.
After the design, you might be the most excited to near about the new Sentra powertrain. Beneath the hood now rests a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 149 horsepower alongside 146 pound-feet of torque. That’s 20% more horses and 17” more lb-ft. than the previous powertrain. The engine is capable of achieve 33 miles per gallon combined across city and highway driving in the S and SV trim levels, or 32 mpg combined in the SR trim.
Of course, the 2020 Nissan Sentra is also packed full of great content inside and out, including features and technologies that are new and old alike. To name just a few, the Sentra offers a 4.2” or 7” digital multi-information driver’s display (the latter called an Advanced Driver-Assist Display), a 7” or 8” display audio screen, Siri Eyes Free, Google Assistant Voice Recognition, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Around View Monitor and more.
