2020 Nissan Sentra vs. Its Competition

2020 Nissan Sentra
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The 2020 Sentra faces dwindling but tough competition.

The Civic and its many variants have really good use of interior space.

The Mazda3 aims more upstream but is still the handling champ of the group.

The Toyota Corolla is average but the hatchback is a winner.

Always an impressive value, Hyundai Elantra is building out with hatchback and performance models.

For a price, the Jetta comes with some of the best technology of the group.
