2020 Nissan Sentra – More style and sportier / Ready To Fight Civic & Corolla. The redesigned 2020 Nissan Sentra officially debuted on the eve of the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, and as you can see the compact has shed its bulbous looks in favor of a new swoopy, slender appearance. As a result, the 2020 Sentra looks sportier, taking many cues from big brother Maxima and Altima with its thin headlights and cool floating roof. Under the skin, Nissan’s compact sedan has gained many upgrades that should help make it more enticing to consumers.
Quite possibly the biggest news for the redesigned 2020 Nissan Sentra is its move away from the V platform, which was used by its predecessor and updated for the current Versa sedan and Kicks SUV. The Sentra now rides on the CMF-C/D platform, the same one underpinning the Rogue and Rogue Sport SUVs. As a result, the Nissan Sentra also gains a multilink rear suspension, which should improve its ride and handling, and its center of gravity has been lowered thanks to a 2.0-inch wider track and 2.2-inch lower height. The 2020 Sentra also gets a dual pinion rack-mounted electric power steering system.
Under the hood, you’ll find a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter I-4 rated at 149 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque, or 25 hp and 20 lb-ft more than the outgoing 1.8-liter. For now, a CVT is the only transmission available. There’s no word yet if we’ll see a turbocharged variant or a manual gearbox for the latest Sentra. Nissan says that the new engine should also improve fuel economy over the outgoing model.
Three trim levels will be offered on the 2020 Nissan Sentra at launch: S, SV, and SR. The base model comes with steel wheels, a 4.2-inch gauge cluster display, Bluetooth, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen. Move up to the SV grade and you get a larger 7.0-inch digital gauge cluster, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, heated front seats, 16-inch alloy wheels, and remote start. SR trims are further distinguished by 18-inch alloy wheels, black side mirrors, a dark chrome grille, a chrome exhaust tip, and LED headlights. The 2020 Nissan Sentra will also be available with the Around View Monitor, making it the only mainstream compact car to offer a 360-degree camera system.
Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 comes standard on all 2020 Sentras. The suite bundles together forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, front and rear automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and lane departure warning. Adaptive cruise control comes standard on the SV and SR grades while rear door alert, which reminds the driver to check the rear seats, is standard on all models. Two-tone exterior colors like the cool Monarch Orange Metallic with the black roof will also be offered when the 2020 Nissan Sentra goes on sale in January.
