If the time has come to give your daily drive an upgrade, then the new Nissan Sentra should not be missed. In case you are still undecided, you might be wondering how the new Nissan compares to other vehicles in its class. When choosing the best new car for your needs, there are many things to think about. The interior volume, fuel economy, safety features, and performance offered are probably some of your top priorities. To help you decide which new car meets all of your needs, we've set the new Sentra up against the 2020 Mazda 3. While both vehicles provide plenty of intelligent safety systems, standard features, and available options for a competitive price, it's probably the case that you'll only be buying one. So, which new car should you choose? You might think we're biased, but here at Premier Nissan of Metairie, we think it's the 2020 Nissan Sentra.

Now, that doesn't mean you need to take our word for it. Our team of helpful sales associates has assembled a side-by-side comparison of these two popular cars for sale so you can see first hand how the new Sentra outperforms the new Mazda 3. When you're finished reading our review and model comparison, you'll be ready to climb into the driver's seat of the 2020 Sentra and take a spin. After you schedule your test drive, find our dealership near New Orleans, Louisiana, and experience the 2020 Sentra in person.

If you're considering the new Sentra, you'll want to be sure you're aware of the 2020 Sentra SR Turbo and Sentra Nismo models, each with a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine under the hood that delivers an impressive 188 horsepower. When choosing your next new car, opt for a vehicle that gives you a thrill. When you opt for the available six-speed manual transmission, you'll also get command of the gear shifts. When making your decision, see if the 2020 Mazda 3 gives you a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine.

The Nissan Sentra SV also stands apart from the competition due to the Xtronic® CVT (continuously variable transmission) that provides smooth gear changes and a comfortable ride. When you imagine yourself driving into work on Monday, picture yourself in the driver's seat of a 2020 Sentra with a Nismo-tuned suspension.

Why Choose the Nissan Sentra Over the Mazda 3?

When it comes to appearance, the new Sentra also boasts a sculpted front grille and sporty profile that tells the world you prefer a vehicle with a race-inspired design as well as evocative performance cues. For instance, peer into the cabin of the 2020 Sentra Nismo and take a look at the red accent stitching on the sport front seats. Form meets function in a comfortable cabin with genuine leather seats, shift knob, and steering wheel.

When comparing the style of the 2020 Sentra NISMO to the 2020 Mazda 3, it's easy to see which car offers more. And with its competitive price tag, the 2020 Nissan Sentra also proves that car-buyers don't need to sacrifice performance or style when choosing a new compact car.
