For the 2020 model year, the Nissan Sentra has been completely redesigned, introducing an exciting new design and a host of new features and technologies to the mix. The compact sedan, which is one of the longest-running nameplates the brand has to offer – outdone only by the Nissan Maxima – enters its eighth generation since being introduced all the way back in 1982 this year, and we’re stoked to be able to offer it to residents of the Newport News VA area.
To give you an idea of just how much has changed in the all-new 2020 Nissan Sentra, engineers built it on a completely new platform compared to the previous generation. This means that its body is now two inches lower and wider than the last Sentra, which – along with its sharp new creases – help to deliver a more aggressive and muscular overall aesthetic for the exterior.
On the inside, the cabin has been refined to deliver a more luxurious interior than previous iterations. Designers paid close attention to the finer details, making sure that everything delivers a premium feel, from the placement of certain controls to the craftsmanship of certain accents. Aspects like connectivity and entertainment have been enhanced through technology, such as the 4.2” digital multi-information driver’s display and 7” touchscreen, or the available 7” digital Advanced Drive-Assist Display and floating 8” multi-touch display audio screen.
Of course, the 2020 Nissan Sentra has an all-new powertrain as well. Replacing the old 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is a new 1.8L 4-cylinder option that’s capable of generating 20 percent more horsepower and 17 percent more pound-feet of torque – or, to be more specific, 149 HP and 146 lb-ft. The engine manages to achieve 29 miles per gallon through the city and 39 mph on the highway for a combined 33 mpg fuel economy rating in the S and SV trim levels. The SR trim drops a bit to 28/37/32 mpg, respectively.
