Exciting Updates in Nissan’s Sedans

It seems 2020 was the year for updates, at least according to Nissan. The company decided to go back to the drawing board for the 2020 Nissan Sentra. The Sentra didn’t lose any of its economy-class pricing, but it still received a nearly complete redesign on the interior and exterior of the vehicle.

Meanwhile, the 2020 Nissan Altima keeps the design the company gave it from the previous year. Instead of physical upgrades, the 2020 Altima received safety tech upgrades that help bring it in line with vehicles well above its class.

Both the 2020 Sentra and the 2020 Altima have something you’ll love. The 2020 Sentra will draw you in with its sporty new design. Still, the 2020 Altima offers a tour-de-force safety tech suite that may be what your family needs.

To show it’s gone all-in on efficiency, Nissan now utilizes a continuous variable transmission (CVT) standard with its sedans. Both the Sentra and Altima offer the technology, which aids in the higher fuel efficiency of both vehicles.
