2020 Nissan Sentra: Redesign Info & Release Date

, Automotive Editor - April 30, 2019

Redesign Preview

Except for the newer SR Turbo and NISMO models, the Nissan Sentra has remained mostly unchanged since its redesign in 2013. Recently, Nissan revealed the Chinese-spec Sylphy that previews a lot of what we can expect from the 2020 Nissan Sentra.

If the Sylphy is a good indicator, we expect the 2020 Nissan Sentra to roll in with an Altima-inspired design that includes a downward-sloping front hood section, bold V-motion grille, wide headlights, and swoopy floating roof. This will not only align the 2020 Sentra with the new Altima, but it will also fall in line design-wise with the Maxima and all-new Versa.

Inside, the Sylphy shows off a lot of Altima-inspired design cues we believe will translate to the 2020 Nissan Sentra. These include the swoopy dash topper, wide HVAC control panel, and horizontally oriented air vents that make the cabin feel wider. The Sylphy also includes the flat-bottom steering wheel and floating touchscreen that have spread across Nissan’s lineup, and we expect this to carry into the 2020 Sentra too.

Under its hood, we expect the 2020 Nissan Sentra to drop the ancient 1.8-liter four-cylinder base engine in favor of something newer, like the Nissan Rogue Sport’s 141-horsepower 2.0-liter engine. There is no word on the more entertaining NISMO and SR Turbo models, so stay tuned for updates on these trims.

Safety is a focal point in the 2019 Sentra with its available automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and active-lane control. We expect these features to remain at least an option in the 2020 Sentra, but they may also be standard. Thanks to it also receiving “Good” ratings in all crash tests, the current Sentra is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, and we expect nothing less from the 2020 Sentra.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no release date yet for the 2020 Nissan Sentra, but we expect it sometime within 2019. Keep it locked here for updates.

With us expecting a full redesign, we also expect a price increase relative to the current Sentra, which ranges from $19,475 to $26,835 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Nissan Sentra will compete with the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, and Toyota Corolla.
