The all-new 2020 Sentra represents an exhilarating breakthrough for Nissan’s popular compact sedan – with eye-catching new styling, a comprehensive suite of intelligent driving technologies including standard Nissan Safety Shield 360, advanced connectivity functions and confident performance provided by a new platform and a new engine. The premium presence of the exterior is highlighted by Nissan’s latest sedan design language including the signature V-motion grille, thin LED headlamps and floating roof. The Sentra SR provides an extra touch of sportiness with a sport-style rear spoiler, black painted side mirrors with integrated turn signals, lower body side sill extensions, 18-inch diamond-cut aluminum-alloy wheels, dark chrome V-motion grille and chrome exhaust finisher.
Inside, the 2020 Sentra’s all-new interior is more refined and more luxurious – creating a high-quality experience for driver and passengers unexpected in the compact sedan segment. Attention to detail and craftsmanship can be found throughout the interior, with details like satin chrome aluminum accents, the intuitive placement of controls, contrast seat stitching, and a standard D-shaped steering wheel. The all-new Sentra was designed to make owners feel in control and safely connected to the world around them. At the heart of that connectivity, is a 4.2-inch digital multi-information driver’s display and a standard 7.0-inch colour touchscreen with Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, Siri® Eyes Free and Google Assistant™ Voice Recognition. On SV and higher grades, there is a 7-inch digital driver’s display paired to a floating 8.0-inch multi-touch center display with NissanConnect® featuring Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for seamless integration.
The new, fuel-efficient 2.0-litre DOHC 4-cylinder engine replaces the previous 1.8-litre design. The new engine delivers 149 horsepower and 145 ft.-lb. of torque, an increase of 20 per cent and 16 per cent respectively. . The Sentra is available in either a 6-speed manual transmission (base S model only), or with the latest generation Xtronic transmission. The Nissan Safety Shield 360, a suite of six advanced driver-assist systems, is standard on all 2020 Sentra grade levels. Safety Shield 360 includes Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), High Beam Assist (HBA) and Rear Intelligent Emergency Braking (RIEB). Also standard are Rear Door Alert (RDA), 10 supplemental air bags and Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA). The new Nissan Sentra arrives in Canadian dealerships in February 2020.
