2020 Nissan Sentra vs. 2020 Honda Civic | McAllen, TX
Nissan has redesigned its beloved Sentra for 2020. This includes updates to technology, design, and performance. With new safety features, an improved chassis, and more, the 2020 Nissan Sentra is a segment standout, easily beating out competition from Toyota, Ford, and Chevrolet. But how does it stand up to segment favorites like the 2020 Honda Civic? When the two go head to head, the Nissan Sentra emerges as the clear victor.
For 2020, the Sentra sees improved fuel economy, a better chassis, and an independent rear suspension. The standard engine powering the Sentra is a 2.0-liter Direct Injection Gasoline™ four-cylinder that cranks out 146 lb-ft of torque. That’s more than you will get from the base engine in the 2020 Civic, which generates just 138 lb-ft.
The 2020 Sentra is a clear leader in safety. For starters, it comes standard with Forward Collision Warning and Rear Automatic Braking; no other vehicle in the segment comes standard with these features, and they’re not even available on the 2020 Civic. You can also get the Sentra with Intelligent Around View® Monitor for a bird’s-eye view of your surroundings — tech not offered on the Civic. Plus, the Nissan Sentra comes standard with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (optional on the Honda Civic) and Blind Spot Warning (not even offered on the Civic).
The interior of the 2020 Nissan Sentra is spacious, offering more front legroom with 44 inches than the 2020 Honda Civic, which features 42.3 inches. The interior of the Sentra also includes an available 8-inch color display for the infotainment system while the Civic tops out at only 7 inches. Plus, the Sentra is the only vehicle in its segment with type-C USB outlets for easy phone charging.
You can get the 2020 Sentra with multiple two-tone paint options, such as Gun Metallic and Super Black, Monarch Orange Metallic and Super Black, and Aspen White TriCoat and Super Black. The 2020 Civic does not offer two-tone exterior paint choices.
