Benefits of the 2020 Nissan Sentra Compact Sedan

While these models are similar, there are many benefits that the 2020 Nissan Sentra compact sedan holds over the 2020 VW Jetta. To begin, the 2020 Nissan Sentra is more affordable overall. While the Jetta’s standard trim is cheaper than the standard trim of the Sentra, it’s quite expensive to get all the features available in the Jetta. Meanwhile, the Sentra packs more value and won’t break the bank if you choose to get the highest trim offered.

Next, the Sentra offers some features in the standard model while the Jetta would require a trim upgrade. Two features that we found to be included in every Sentra but not every Jetta are Lane Departure Warning and the proximity key. Lastly, the Sentra and Jetta each offer similar trunk space for groceries, luggage, and more. However, the Sentra provides a bit more room, making it easier to pack more belongings.

Overall, the 2020 Nissan Sentra is a great option for anyone in the market for a new car. If you are interested in a Sentra of your own, contact us at Glendale Nissan and we will help you take one of these exciting models out for a test drive.
