Nissan Redesigns 2020 Sentra

 


Nissan recently unveiled its all-new 2020 Nissan Sentra, and in doing so, celebrated the reinvention of the company's best-selling U.S. model of all time. The 2020 Sentra transforms the storied nameplate into a head-turning compact sedan with class-leading interior refinement, standard Safety Shield 360, seamless connectivity and fun-to-drive performance. This updated Sentra completes Nissan's redesigned sedan lineup– following major updates to Versa, Altima, and Maxima over the past two years.

Originally introduced for the 1982 model year, the eighth-generation Sentra is built on a new platform that provides greatly improved proportions and stance. The 2020 Sentra sits about two inches lower and two inches wider than the previous generation. The exterior also incorporates Nissan's latest design language found on its other dramatic sedans, including its signature V-motion grille, thin LED headlamps and floating roof. Sentra also features new wheel designs and a slate of new colors, including three new two-tone color combinations.

The interior of Sentra is more refined and luxurious. It creates a high-quality experience for driver and passengers. Extra attention was paid to the tiny details to improve the perceived and actual quality. The feel of the steering wheel in the driver's hands, the smooth operation of the dials and switches were carefully crafted to create a premium feel. Available amenities range from quilted, leather-appointed, heated front seats and heated outside mirrors to Nissan's renowned NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats and Intelligent Around View® Monitor. Infotainment and connectivity features include an available floating 8-inch multi-touch center display and NissanConnect® featuring Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

The 2020 Sentra features a new, fuel-efficient 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine rated at 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. This is an increase of 20 percent and 16 percent respectively over the previous generation's 1.8-liter engine. The new engine is also projected to offer improved fuel economy. Dynamic performance has been greatly improved through the use of a new independent rear suspension and a new rack electric power steering system.

Advanced safety and driver assistance technologies, which are now available across the entire family of Nissan sedans, include standard Nissan Safety Shield 360, a suite of six advanced driver-assist systems that includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, and High Beam Assist. The new Sentra also offers standard 10 airbags, Rear Door Alert, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, and Intelligent Driver Alertness.
