Sentra VS. Elantra: Japanese Quality - Price of a Korean One

Innovation differently, and mobility beyond imagination begins at Nissan! That's what makes us say that Japanese quality is omnipresent when it comes to building a Nissan. The 2020 new Sentra is one of the vehicles that will meet all your expectations. It's agile, but also intuitive and cutting edge.

Alma Nissan in Lac-Saint-Jean introduces you to the 2020 new Nissan Sentra; yet it does so by highlighting its features and drawing a few parallels with the 2020 Hyundai Elantra.


While the pun may be amusing since both models end with an "A", the fact remains that the 2020 eighth-generation Nissan Sentra has been completely redesigned and offers you plenty to look forward to. This car is very useful in the city and on the road, transforming the brand's legendary compact sedan into a model that turns heads with unprecedented interior refinement, a standard Safety Shield 360 and high-performance connectivity.

The eighth-generation Nissan Sentra is based on a new platform with significantly improved proportions and posture: approximately 5 cm lower and 5 cm wider than the previous generation. The exterior incorporates Nissan's latest design language found in other Nissan vehicles, including the iconic V-motion grille and LED headlights. The interior of the 2020 Sentra is more refined and luxurious than the 2020 Hyundai Elantra, creating a high quality experience for both driver and passengers. Special attention has been paid to every detail to enhance the perceived and actual quality of the new Sentra. The feel of the steering wheel in the driver's hands, the smooth operation of the dials and switches have been carefully designed to create a superior feel, something not found in the Elantra.

Available features range from padded, leather-trimmed, heated front seats to heated outside mirrors, and from the famous NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats to the intelligent Around View monitor. Infotainment and connectivity features include an 8-inch floating multi-touch centre screen and NissanConnect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2020 Nissan Sentra is simply stunning.

The sedan also features a new fuel-efficient 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine with 149 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, up 20% and 16% respectively from the previous generation 1.8-litre engine, which is again superior to the Korean sedan's 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. The Sentra compact car is available with either a manual transmission (6-speed manual) or a continuously variable automatic transmission. Why not equip it with stylish alloy wheels! In short, power and performance are at the rendezvous in this Japanese car that now offers you driving dynamics (intelligent traction and drive control) and economic efficiency.

But what sets the Sentra even more apart from the Elantra is its price. Not only does it cost less than its rival, it's also built to a much higher standard. The Japanese know how to do the right things and only install high-quality materials. The 2020 Nissan Sentra is the purest example of this. Innovating differently is what Japanese engineers do. With unparalleled precision and a keen sense of detail, they achieve fabulous results.
