Nissan isn’t giving up on sedans. Considering the Sentra is the best-selling compact 4-door in North America, we can see why. The new model looks sleeker than ever, sits wider for a sportier stance, finds a completely ramped up interior to near luxury sedan levels (in a Sentra?), and gets a more powerful 149-hp, 4-cylinder 2.0L engine under the hood offering improved fuel economy.

New Sentra release date set for January 28, 2020

Now in its 8th-generation, Nissan is offering the popular model in 3 trims, starting at $19,090 for the entry-level 2020 Sentra S. Expect dealer deliveries across the US for late January.

Here’s the full price breakdown:

  • 2020 Sentra S – $19,090

  • 2020 Sentra SV – $20,270

  • 2020 Sentra SR – $21,430
