 NASHVILLE - Autotrader has named the all-new 2020 Nissan Sentra to its "Best New Cars for 2020" list, which judges newly introduced vehicles on the basis of value, available technology and driving dynamics.

"The 2020 Nissan Sentra is a very good compact sedan for buyers looking for comfort and value. Nissan has been making big strides in interior quality and design in recent years, and it shows on the new Sentra - which also has improved exterior styling and a quiet ride," Autotrader wrote citing its editorial and data teams' unanimous selection of Sentra to the 2020 Best New Cars list.

"Every vehicle Autotrader listed as a Best New Car for 2020 has 'that certain something' that makes it stand out in a very crowded field."
