Nissan Sentra S
We start this trim level countdown with the 2020 Nissan Sentra S. It comes standard with a 2.0L Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) engine. It generates 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque.
The engine works side by side with the Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission). Its virtually gearless shifting pattern will smooth out your ride and maximize fuel economy. It helps achieve an EPA-estimated 29 city MPG/39 highway MPG.1
To help improve efficiency further, the S trim level also comes with active grille shutters. They control air flow based on how fast you’re going. That will help keep the engine cool and optimize the air-fuel mixture inside the engine cylinders.
On the outside, this trim has a style that blends a sporty spirit with sleek sophistication. The chrome V-Motion grille will announce your arrival. Plus, the Intelligent Auto Headlights will make sure your path is always illuminated.
Inside of this trim, you and up to four friends get to sit back in cloth-trimmed seats. Everyone will have plenty of wiggle room with 96 cubic feet of passenger volume. If you’re bringing your surfboard to the beach or traveling with bulky cargo, lower the standard 60/40 split fold-down rear seatbacks to expand the trunk space.
From the standard 7-inch touch-screen display, the Sentra S will give you access to the connective features you need to stay in touch. The Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System will let you play your favorite tunes and send texts while keeping your hands on the wheel. Nissan Voice Recognition makes the system even more user-friendly.
Nissan Sentra SV
The second trim level, the Nissan Sentra SV, builds onto the previous trim level with more features and convenience.
It starts with the Nissan Intelligent Key®. It will let you lock and unlock the sedan while the keys remain conveniently in your pocket or bag. It will also give you easy access to that 14.3 cubic feet of trunk space. It comes with Push Button Ignition, so you can hit the road while your keys stay tucked away.
The Nissan Sentra SV also includes a Remote Engine Start System, so you’ll be able to get the car warmed up or cooled down before you even step outside. Once you’re inside, the Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control will let you and your passenger personalize the comfort level further.
This is also the first Nissan Sentra trim level to offer a 6-way power- adjustable driver’s seat and available heated front seats. You’ll be able to customize your support and stay cozy when you take on a commute during the tough Rhode Island winter.
You’ll also have the connective power of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. They’ll put all your favorite smartphone apps and your most popular playlists right at your fingertips. Adding to that, you’ll get to control it all right from the NissanConnect® 8-inch touch-screen display.
The Advanced Drive-Assist® Display also gets an upgrade in this Sentra trim level. It puts all your need-to-know information right onto the instrument display. You’ll get to see active safety features, music information, fuel economy, and even tire pressure. You’ll also get to activate the Eco Mode setting from here to further maximize efficiency.
Nissan Sentra SR
The final rung in this trim level ladder is the Nissan Sentra SR. It adds sporty style and premium amenities to the previous trims.
Staring down this Sentra trim will introduce you to the dark chrome V-Motion grille, black outside mirrors, and illuminating LED headlights and fog lights.
When you pull away behind the wheel of the SR, everyone will know you mean business. They’ll watch as the sport rear design disappears over the horizon. It comes with a chrome exhaust finisher and a rear spoiler, which also enhances aerodynamics.
You’ll also get the stylish stance of 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. They’re exclusive to this trim level, lightweight, and heat resistant.
The 2020 Nissan Sentra SR will upgrade your comfort as well. It comes standard with Sport Cloth upholstery, but you can also opt for the premium touch of Sport leatherette-appointed seats. They both come with the flair of orange contrast stitching.
When your favorite song comes on in this trim level, you can crank up the volume on the Bose® Premium Audio System. It’s only available with the SR, and it comes with eight speakers.
Safety Features on the Sentra Trim Levels
Every Nissan Sentra trim level comes with Nissan Safety Shield® 360. It includes six confidence-inspiring technologies that will give you more peace of mind when combined with other available features.
First, there’s Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. It will alert you to potential collisions and may activate the brakes if you don’t react in time.
You’ll also have Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert watching your back. They’ll watch out for vehicles in your blind spots, so you can change lanes and back out of tight spaces safely.
Lane Departure Warning will give you more confidence out on the open road. It will alert you if you start to drift from your lane, so you can guide the vehicle back to the center.
To ease the commute, the Sentra offers Intelligent Cruise Control. It comes with the SV and SR trim levels. It will maintain a set speed while keeping a safe distance between you and the car ahead.
When it comes time to tackle a crowded parking lot, the Nissan Sentra SR offers the Intelligent Around View® Monitor. It gives you an overhead view of your sedan, so you can shimmy into tight spaces and avoid obstacles on all sides.
