2020 Nissan Sentra Is Low, Wide, Sleek, And More Efficient Than Ever

The 2020 Nissan Sentra has just launched on the eve of the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, roughly six months after being previewed by the Sylphy over in Asia.

The Sentra is Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S. of all time so redesigning it is rather significant. Underpinning what is the eighth-generation Sentra is a new platform that makes the sedan two inches lower and two inches wider than its predecessor. This lower and more aggressive stance works beautifully with the re-designed front and rear fascias, particularly the front that supports Nissan’s signature V-motion grille, thin LED headlights, and floating roof.

A sole powertrain in the form of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 149 hp and 146 lb-ft (197 Nm) of torque is sold with the Sentra, offering 20 per cent more power and 16 per cent greater torque than the previous-generation’s 1.8-liter engine. Nissan also says the 2.0-liter will be more fuel efficient although it has stopped short of issuing EPA estimates just yet.

Numerous safety features come standard with the 2020 Sentra as part of the Nissan Safety Shield 360. For example, there is Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, and High Beam Assist. In addition, the new Sentra comes standard with 10 airbags, Rear Door Alert, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, and Intelligent Driver Alertness.

“The all-new Sentra delivers the whole package, with features and value that are hard to ignore,” division vice president of Nissan Sales & Regional Operations, Nissan North America, David Kershaw said. “It’s stylish, confident and connected – a true breakthrough in compact sedans.”

Inside, the 2020 Sentra is drastically improved over the outgoing model thanks in part to new leather-appointed, heated front seats. There is also an 8-inch touchscreen display infotainment system supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other amenities include heated exterior mirrors.
