Advantages of the 2020 Nissan Sentra Compact Sedan

Appealing to individuals, compact sedans like the 2020 Nissan Sentra and 2020 Toyota Corolla are great for getting drivers to their destinations and offering a comfortable experience while staying within a budget. For drivers that are looking for a high-value car and to save some money, you will find what you need with the 2020 Nissan Sentra. Priced lower than that of the Corolla, the Sentra is more affordable for the common driver.

Of course, this doesn’t lower the quality of the Sentra at all. In fact, the Sentra offers more luxury and convenience. For example, the base Sentra model includes parking assist and the Nissan Intelligent Key. The Corolla doesn’t have the option to add parking assist at all, and drivers will need to pay extra for a proximity key.

For cargo, the maximum cargo capacity in the 2020 Nissan Sentra is 14.3 cubic feet.
