Are you ready to inspire your morning commute with a new car? Then the new Nissan Sentra is a compact sedan that should not be missed. When choosing the best new car for your daily drive, there are many areas to take into account. The performance, interior volume, fuel economy, and safety features are probably a few of your top priorities. To help you choose the best car for you and your family, let's see how the 2020 Nissan Sentra compares to the 2020 Hyundai Elantra. Both of these new cars for sale give you plenty of available options, intelligent safety systems, and standard features at a competitive price, but it's likely that you're only buying one at the moment. So, which new car should you choose? Here at Premier Nissan of Metairie, we stand behind the 2020 Nissan Sentra.

You probably expected we would, but you don't have to take our word for it. Our team has put together a side-by-side comparison of these two popular models to help you see how the new Sentra outperforms the new Elantra. After you finish this review and model comparison, you'll want to get behind the wheel. After all, the true test is how the car drives. We invite you to visit our dealership near New Orleans, Louisiana, and experience the 2020 Sentra in person.

If you're considering the new Sentra, then the 2020 Sentra SR Turbo and Sentra Nismo with the 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine and impressive 188 horsepower should not be missed. When shopping for a new car that gives you a thrill when you put your foot into it and gives you control of the gear changes, choose the available six-speed manual transmission for your ride. The 2020 Elantra doesn't offer a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine, so keep that in mind when making your decision.

The Nissan Sentra SV distinguishes itself from other vehicles in its class thanks to its Xtronic® CVT that provides smooth gear changes and a comfortable ride. When picturing yourself pulling up to the office on Monday behind the wheel of a new car, picture the 2020 Sentra with a Nismo-tuned suspension.

Why Choose the Nissan Sentra Over the Hyundai Elantra?

When it comes to design, the 2020 Nissan Sentra offers race-inspired style and evocative performance cues while the 2020 Hyundai Elantra does not. Take a look into the 2020 Sentra Nismo cabin and discover the red accent stitching on the sport front seats, and you'll see what we mean. The sculpted front grille and sporty profile will let other traffic know that you chose the Sentra over the Elantra while you enjoy a comfortable cabin with a genuine leather shift knob, seats, and steering wheel.

When comparing the style of the 2020 Sentra NISMO to the 2020 Elantra style, it's easy to see which car gives you more. The 2020 Nissan Sentra also proves that car-buyers don't need to sacrifice performance or style when choosing a compact car with a competitive price tag.
