NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Autotrader has named the all-new 2020 Nissan Sentra to its “10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates in 2020” list, which judges new and used vehicles on the basis of affordable pricing, stylish looks, high-tech features and excellent fuel economy1.
“The Nissan Sentra is all-new for 2020 and it’s a massive improvement over its aging predecessor. It gets a sharp new design inside and out that looks muscular on the outside and upscale on the inside. The Sentra offers a strong value with an affordable starting MSRP of $19,090 and generous standard technology that includes the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of driver assistance tech like automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and more,” according to the editors at Autotrader.
“With a sleek and sporty design outside, premium materials inside and the most standard safety features in its class2, Sentra offers a great value for graduates as they navigate this new chapter,” said Scott Shirley, vice president, CMM & Marketing Operations, Nissan North America. “As the 2020 Sentra has continued to receive rave reviews from customers and dealers, third-party recognition from an authority like Autotrader is important validation.”
The all-new Sentra was also recently named to Autotrader’s “Best New Cars of 2020” list, which judges newly introduced vehicles on value, available technology and driving dynamics.
“There are plenty of basic, affordable economy cars. There are even some low-priced sporty cars. But what if you’re really looking for luxury on a budget? That’s why the Nissan Sentra is on our list,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “With interesting color choices, pleasing interior textures and patterns and a specifically un-economy car look outside, it’s about as close to a new luxury car as you can get for $21,000.”
