Thinking about upgrading your daily driver with a new compact sedan? Then the new Nissan Sentra is probably at the top of your list. When deciding on the best new car for your needs, there are many factors to consider. Starting price, performance, passenger space, and a comfortable driver's seat are likely your top priorities. To help you decide, we're comparing the new Sentra to its chief rival from Honda: the new 2020 Civic. While both of these new cars for sale give you appealing features, lists of available options, and intelligent safety features all for a competitive price, you can probably only have one in your garage. So, which one should you choose? Here at Premier Nissan of Metairie, we think the choice should be the 2020 Nissan Sentra.
Since you might think we're a little biased, we've put together a side-by-side comparison of these two top-selling cars to help you see how the 2020 Sentra outperforms the new Civic. To meet this new Nissan sedan in person, we invite you to visit our dealership near New Orleans, Louisiana.
When it comes to performance, the 2020 Sentra SR Turbo and Sentra Nismo both come equipped with a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine that produces an impressive 188 horsepower. When shopping for a new car that motivates you and keeps you in control of the revs, opt for the available six-speed manual transmission. When stacking the Sentra up against the 2020 Civic, you won't find a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine in the Honda. If you are looking for a performance sedan, take a spin in the new Sentra S with a naturally aspirated 1.8-Liter engine that provides its driver with up to 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.
In the Nissan Sentra SV, we find an Xtronic® CVT that provides a smooth drive, crisp shifts, and sets itself apart from the competition. For a new ride that's fun to take into the office, don't miss the 2020 Sentra with a Nismo-tuned suspension.
When it comes to style, the 2020 Nissan Sentra sets itself apart from the 2020 Honda Civic thanks to its race-inspired design and evocative performance cues. Peer into the 2020 Sentra Nismo cabin and take in the stylish red stitching on its sport front seats. The sculpted front grille and sporty profile will let slower traffic know you drive the new Sentra as a cabin with a genuine leather steering wheel, shift knob, and seats keep you and your passengers in style.
When comparing the 2020 Sentra NISMO to the 2020 Civic style, it's easy to see which car wins the design award. The 2020 Nissan Sentra is also proof that one does not need to sacrifice performance or style when deciding on a compact car with a competitive price tag. To lease or finance your new Sentra, you can apply for Nissan financing through our finance department.
