With more than six million examples sold since 1982, the Sentra is Nissan’s best-selling nameplate in the US market. For 2020, the compact sedan is reborn on an all-new platform and with a new focus on quality and style.
The eighth-generation Sentra’s all-new interior is more refined and more luxurious to compete with rivals like the Honda Civic. Nissan says that 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. They combine to give the interior a premium, refined feel added to what is expected to be among the quietest interiors in its class.
Attention to detail in the new Sentra’s cabin design included extra care taken on driver touchpoints like the feel of the steering wheel in the driver’s hand, the smooth operations of the dials and switches and available leather seats. In addition to the soft feel of the leather, the new Sentra also boasts Nissan’s Zero Gravity front seats to help optimize posture positioning for enhanced comfort during long distance driving.
The all-new Sentra was also designed to make owners feel in control and safely connected to the world around them. At the heart of that connectivity is a 4.2in digital multi-information driver’s display and a standard 7.0in color touchscreen with Bluetooth hands-free phone and text messaging, and Siri Eyes Free and Google Assistant voice recognition.
On SV and higher grades, buyers can opt for a 7.0in digital drivers display paired to a floating 8.0in multi-touch center display with available features such as NissanConnect featuring seamless cellphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Heated front seats and outside mirrors and remote engine start are also present for cold-weather comfort.
