The redesigned 2020 Nissan Sentra costs only $1,200 more than the old model.
Last month, the covers came off the all-new 2020 Nissan Sentra. With its stylish design and new advanced tech, the new Sentra is an attractive package if you're looking for an affordable sedan. Pricing wasn't announced at the time, but Nissan has now confirmed the all-new 2020 Sentra will start at $19,090 when it arrives in US dealers on January 28, 2020.
Moving up the range, the Sentra SV starts at $20,270 and the range-topping Sentra SR will set you back at least $21,430. All prices exclude the $925 destination and handling fee, however. This means the 2020 Nissan Sentra's starting price is only $1,200 more than the outgoing model.
The Sentra S base model rides on 16-inch steel wheels and comes with keyless entry, push-button start, and a seven-inch display as standard, while the SV and SR trims include an eight-inch display and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Compared to the old model, the new 2020 Sentra has a sleeker design and borrows sporty elements from its Maxima and Altima siblings. It also features a refined, premium interior, which Nissan claims sets "new standards for quality and comfort."
Under the hood, a new, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 149 horsepower and 146 ft-lb of torque – that's 20 percent more horsepower and 17 percent more torque than the previous model. A new independent rear suspension matched to a McPherson strut front suspension with twin-tube shock absorbers, and a new electric power steering system also provide a more engaging driving experience.
As standard, the 2020 Nissan Sentra includes Nissan Safety Shield 360, a suite of six advanced driver-assist systems including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, high beam assist and rear automatic braking. A rear door alert, 10 air bags and driver alert are also standard.
