Nissan to unveil all-new Sentra at the 2020 Montreal International Auto Show

MISSISSAUGA, ONT, and – Two long‑awaited Nissan models –the 2020 Nissan Sentra and 2020 Nissan TITAN – will be on display for the first time in Canada on press day at the 77th Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS). Both models will go on sale at Nissan dealerships in February, 2020. 

“We are thrilled to introduce Canadians to the all-new Sentra in Quebec at the next Montreal Auto Show,”said Steve Milette, president of Nissan Canada. “The 2020 Sentra represents an exhilarating breakthrough for Nissan’s popular compact sedan, and I’m convinced it will meet Quebecers’needs, with its eye-catching new styling, a comprehensive suite of intelligent driving technologies including standard Nissan Safety Shield 360, advanced connectivity functions and confident performance provided by a new platform and a new engine.” 

Sentra is the best-selling Nissan model of all time in Canada, with more than 326,000 deliveries since 1990. Now in its eighth generation, the 2020 Sentra resembles its predecessors in name only. It has been completely transformed from a traditional compact sedan to a powerful presence that shares the muscular, sporty design elements of models like the Maxima and GT-R. It also features a new refined, more luxurious interior, setting new standards for quality and comfort.

Sentra’s driving experience has also been completely revamped, thanks to a 2.0-litre, 4‑cylinder engine rated at 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque—increases of 20 per cent and 16 per cent respectively over the previous generation’s 1.8-litre engine—and a new platform featuring an independent rear suspension and an upgraded, new, dual-pinion electric power steering design (DP-EPS).

 “The compact segment is as popular as ever in Quebec, and we are confident that the all‑new Sentra will set itself apart from the competition with its head‑turning new look, revamped and reassuring driving experience thanks to the Nissan Safety Shield 360, and its comprehensive suite of intelligent driving technologies including standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 and advanced connectivity functions,” Milette added. “We have created a bona fide innovation in the compact sedan category.”
