2020 Nissan Sentra 2020 First Drive: Will Better Than Ever Be Good Enough?
Auto123 goes west to sunny California for a first drive of the rejuvenated 2020 Nissan Sentra
Santa Monica, CA - The Sentra was once a big star in the Nissan family, but the path that star has taken across the sky has been that of a roller coaster; its slow, gradual ascent was followed by a 100-mph descent. To spot the beginning of the latter, you have to go back to the 2007 redesign, the year of a completely failed redesign.
The automaker been working hard to get the Sentra back on track since then, but the competition has taken advantage the slip and so the Nissan has been relegated to a secondary role in the segment. The outgoing edition of the model, its several qualities notwithstanding, just never succeeded in imposing itself.
For 2020, Nissan started from scratch, and so we get a new vehicle with a new platform, a new engine (new to it, anyways) and a new design, among other things.
