2020 Nissan Sentra at Bourgeois Midland Nissan

While the Nissan Sentra has seen a number of changes since its introduction as a subcompact car in 1982, one change has seemingly been a constant: it gets a little bigger, a little faster, and a little more stylish, every year. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that the all-new, completely redesigned 2020 Nissan Sentra offers a huge dose of performance thrills to go along with its neck-snapping good looks. Learn more about the 2020 Sentra with Ontario’s source for all things Nissan: Bourgeois Midland Nissan.


An unflinching dedication to detail makes the redesigned 2020 Nissan Sentra both smart and beautiful, inside and out. A wide stance gives the Sentra impossibly sporty appeal, while sharp lines running from the perfectly proportioned front and rear fascia create intrigue in a silhouette sharing more in common with sports cars than other compact sedans. The design cues inspiring Nissan’s signature V-Motion grille are found throughout the exterior of the Sentra, allowing the light to catch and reflect off the sedan’s many curves, while the available two-tone exterior paint job adds to the larger-than-life style of the 2020 Sentra. From the LED headlights to the available power-sliding glass moonroof, the Sentra delivers big on the style front.

That same dose of style creeps into the interior of the 2020 Nissan Sentra, infiltrating every aspect of the smart and ergonomic layout, premium materials, and sport-inspired accents—like the air vents inspired by the legendary Nissan GT-R®. Contrast stitching finds its way across the seats, console, and leather shift knob—available in a richly-appointed leatherette option—and a heated, D-shaped steering wheel accentuates the performance handling of the Sentra while providing easy access to a variety of smart controls. The Zero Gravity front seats of the Sentra add to the sporty feel while reducing fatigue, and an available 8-inch touchscreen puts a heavy exclamation mark on this Nissan’s unique blend of aesthetics and utility.

All the racing-inspired details and aerodynamic design of the 2020 Nissan Sentra isn’t simple posturing. A 149 horsepower, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine puts plenty of pep in the Sentra’s step, while 146 lb-ft of torque provides plenty of acceleration for darting in and out of traffic. Enjoy an impressive estimated fuel economy of only 8 L/100 km in the city, while passing vehicles on the highway requires no effort at all—and very little gas, thanks to an estimated fuel economy of 6 L/100 km—all thanks to Nissan’s responsive and smooth Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission).

Beyond its powerful engine and efficient transmission, the 2020 Nissan Sentra offers an exceptionally smooth ride thanks to an independent rear multi-link sport suspension. Not only does this provide stellar comfort, but you can lean back into those Zero Gravity seats while enjoying some seriously responsive handling. A dual-pinion electric power steering system offers up total control whether you’re navigating through cramped quarters in the heart of the city or testing your driving skill around all manner of curves and corners. The 2020 Nissan Sentra doesn’t just look the part—it performs the part, too.

Nissan Sentra Model Changes

The only thing this 2020 model shares with the 2019 Nissan Sentra is its name—with wholesale changes occurring from its new, more responsive platform to its exterior and interior design. You’ll also find more standard tech in the 2020 Sentra, including the serious safety afforded by features like Intelligent Emergency Braking and Blind Spot Warning, among others. And while the two-tone paint option gives the 2020 Nissan Sentra an added dose of panache, the larger more powerful engine is where the sporty new Sentra really shines.
