Energetic Performance Awaits

Get the power you’re looking for out of your drives when you choose a Nissan. Gain the capability you’re looking for, too. We’ll begin with the Nissan Sentra, which carries an efficient 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that makes 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. A smooth ride awaits in the Sentra, which delivers sharp acceleration as it hugs every corner.

The 2020 Altima offers the choice of two unique engines, the first being a 2.5L 4-cylinder that makes 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged engine, meanwhile, finds a balance of power and efficiency regardless of your driving situation, raising and lowering pistons to provide power only when you need it. It’s capable of delivering up to 248 horsepower.

Want a car that’s ready for anything? The Altima is the only model that carries available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, which monitors road conditions and optimizes traction on slick roads.

Sentra vs Altima Safety Features

Drive confidently in both the Sentra and Altima, thanks to the Nissan Safety Shield® 360. This suite of safety features protects you on every side, keeping you safe in the process.

Standard and available safety features include:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Blind Spot Warning

This suite also includes High Beam Assist, which can automatically deactivate high beams if your car detects an oncoming vehicle, then turn them on after the other driver has passed you. That’s standard in the Sentra and available in the Altima. The same can be said about Lane Departure Warning. Make sure you only change lanes when you intend to. If this system can detect you’re drifting, you’ll receive a warning.

Interior Features Designed to Keep You Comfortable

Once you settle into the cabin of your car, you’ll want to feel comfortable at all times. Thanks to the available Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control feature, you can. You may have a different idea from a front passenger as to what “comfortable” really means. Now, there’s no need to compromise, as you can both set different temperatures up front.

Meanwhile, available heated front seats can warm you up on a colder morning, so you’ll feel at home the moment you step inside the cabin.

The best way to start your ride is by using the Remote Engine Start System feature. Start your car before you even step inside in your Sentra or Altima.
