The Nissan Sentra is all-new for 2020 and it’s a massive improvement over its aging predecessor.

“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 director 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.”
