When deciding on the best new car for your daily commute, the 2020 Nissan Sentra is likely at the top of your list. And with good reason. But if you are undecided, you might be wondering how this new Nissan compares to the competition. To help you find the right car for your needs, our dealership has put together a model comparison between the 2020 Sentra and 2020 Volkswagen Jetta. As you conduct your model research, you're probably taking fuel economy, safety features, performance, and interior volume all into account. While both the Nissan and the Volkswagen provide an ample supply of standard features, available options, and advanced safety systems all for a competitive price, it's likely that you're only going to buy one. So which one should you pick? With the risk of appearing biased, here at Premier Nissan of Metairie, we think it's the 2020 Nissan Sentra.

Thankfully, you don't need to take our word for it. We've put together a side-by-side comparison of these two popular cars for sale to see for yourself how the new Sentra outperforms the new Volkswagen Jetta. Once you read our review and model comparison, you'll want to slide into the driver's seat of the 2020 Sentra and go for a ride. After you book a test drive, take these directions to our dealership and experience the 2020 Sentra near New Orleans, Louisiana.

If you're a performance-minded driver and thinking about the new Sentra, you'll be glad to know that the 2020 Sentra SR Turbo and Sentra NISMO models are both motivated by a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine that produces 188 horsepower. When you choose the available six-speed manual transmission, you'll also get command of the gear shifts. The new Sentra exemplifies how you don't need to sacrifice performance or style when shopping for a new car at a competitive price. Before you make your decision, see if the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta gives you a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine.

For smooth gear changes and a comfortable ride, take a spin in the Nissan Sentra SV with its Xtronic® CVT (continuously variable transmission) then compare that to the 2020 Sentra with a NISMO-tuned suspension.

Why Choose the Nissan Sentra Over the Volkswagen Jetta?

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 the time comes to make your purchase, the associates in our in-house finance department can help you decide if it makes more sense to lease or finance. To get a jumpstart on getting pre-approved for financing, you can apply for credit through our secure website at your convenience.
