2019 Nissan Sentra vs 2018 Nissan Sentra

Serving Gainesville, GA

Nissan, one of the world’s most prominent automakers, has an extensive line of phenomenal vehicles. The Sentra has been a popular compact sedan for quite some time, and the 2019 Nissan Sentra is no exception to the rule. Of course, this model would replace its predecessor, and this article is written to explore what each vehicle has in common and to explore some of the differences.


In terms of engine performance, both vehicles share many of the same attributes. The 2019 Nissan Sentra has carried over the same turbocharged engines from its 2018 model. This includes a 1.8-liter engine that produces up to 124 horsepower as well as produces up to 125 pound-feet of torque. The combined-mpg rating stays the same with 29 mph in the city while offering up to 37 mpg on the open road. The 1.6-liter engine produces even more horsepower at 188 ponies as well as 177 pound-feet of torque. Of course, this power delivery comes from the astonishing SR Turbo trim. The 2019 and 2018 models have been equipped with low-inertia turbocharged engines that produce a quicker engine response as well as good linear acceleration.


The 2019 Nissan Sentra has a dazzling and thrilling exterior. This compact sedan appears as if it has been craved from glass thanks to its smooth lines and crisp finish. Though this vehicle is rather small in size, it still displays impressive contours as well as intelligent-LED headlamps. The headlamps are the best exterior feature here, and they’re dynamically architected into the front fascia. Nissan’s V-shaped grille is also stunning as it’s draped in a fine coating of chrome. The backdrop of the grille comes with a mesh-like appearance as well as for the lower fascia. Consumers can choose from various trim levels, including the S, SV, SR, SR Turbo, SL and Nismo. This compact sedan also sets well-balanced on 16 and 18-inch wheels.

The 2018 Nissan Sentra shares a similar exterior design as its newer model. On the other hand, the 2018 Sentra’s exterior is a bit less dynamic in terms of overall sharpness in the features. Nissan did not make too many upgrades to this façade other than a few variations to give the newer model more flare.


The 2019 Nissan Sentra hosts an abundance of driver-assistance technologies. This sedan offers a little help for the unexpected thanks to its preventive-safety features, including Intelligent-Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The vehicle’s seven-inch touchscreen display is very responsive, and several apps can be found here. Apple iPhone users can take advantage of the Apple CarPlay technology. There are multiple USB ports as well as Bose audio.

The 2018 Nissan Sentra offers many of the same technological advancements. The base model for this specific sedan provides a five-inch touchscreen instead of a seven-inch display. The leather-wrapped steering wheel provides comfort, and there’s a power moonroof. Other features include Bluetooth, standard cruise control, and leather-appointed seats depending on the actual trim of choice.
