2020 Nissan Sentra: Compact sedan looks great, but engine sounds meh

The 2020 Nissan Sentra actually looks fanastic, and it’s been several generations since Nissan’s compact has been anything but milquetoast.


Shame, the only engine offered (to start) is a 2L I4 with 111kW (149hp) and 198Nm (146 lb-ft). Yes, it’s more powerful than the B17’s 1.8L, but there’s no turbo or larger engine option for now.

No official announcement yet, but it’ll probably only be available with a CVT. Oh no.

Standard safety features include autonomous emergency braking, rear autonomous braking, and automatic high beams. Available items include 10 airbags, rear door alert, forward collision warning, and driver alert monitoring.

The mini-Altima is available with an 8″ touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
