Nissan Sentra Technology

Nissan Sentra Performance-Enhancing Technology

Equipped with front-wheel drive, it manages to find the perfect balance between sharp responsiveness and ultra-smooth steering.  Reducing sharp jolts and bumps, its newly designed independent multi-link suspension gives the 2020 Nissan Sentra a premium feel.

Planning a long road trip to the Poconos? Perhaps you want to explore new beach points along the Jersey shore? Switch the Sentra into Eco Mode and settle in for a long day of driving. Available through the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display, this feature automatically adjusts throttle response and provides data to help you adjust your driving habits.

To make your daily trip into the office a bit easier, the available Intelligent Cruise Control automatically adjusts your speed to keep you a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. This keeps you from consistently hitting the brake pedal and burning gas in the process.

A Smartly Designed Transmission

An efficient engine isn’t the only thing that provides great gas mileage for the Nissan Sentra. With the standard XTronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission), the Sentra is able to maximize fuel efficiency using a smartly designed drivetrain.

The CVT is an automatic transmission that does away with a traditional gear-based setup. Instead, a metal belt performs the task of the gears for a smooth transition between shift points. You’ll be able to get the best balance of power and efficiency every time with a system that’s able to find that perfect middle ground between shift ratios.

This allows you to save gas without having to worry about sitting on an inefficient gear ratio. With the CVT, the Sentra is able to manage the drivetrain smoothly and efficiently.

Nissan Sentra Smart and Sculpted Body

Maximizing fuel efficiency isn’t just about building a system that doesn’t have to work too hard, it’s about building a car that moves with ease. The 2020 Nissan Sentra utilizes a sculpted body to maximize its gas mileage by cutting through the air.

You’ll be able to move easily against the wind with the V-Motion grille of the Nissan Sentra. With this front grille, the Sentra is designed with an aerodynamic body shape that allows it to move with ease, enhancing fuel efficiency by relieving resistance off the engine. The V-Motion grille is designed to allow the Sentra to glide down the highway with a sharp and stylish body.

Taking full advantage of its lower, wider stance, this small sedan prowls the roadway like a cat. Its built-in active grille shutters control airflow through the engine, delivering optimal fuel economy and power.

How to Maximize Your Nissan Sentra MPG

The 2020 Sentra has a long-held reputation when it comes to supplying everyday efficiency. Still, there are a few things you can do as a driver to make sure you’re getting the most from each fuel-up. Some of the easiest ways to maintain your sedan’s efficiency include:

Nissan Sentra MPG

Change Your Oil Every 5,000 to 7,000 miles

Simply put, old motor oil makes it harder for your engine to perform. This results in burning extra fuel.

Furthermore, replacing the oil and filter every 5,000 to 7,000 miles not only helps maintain your MPG rating, but it can also go a long way toward extending the life of your engine.

Check Your Tire’s PSI Levels Every Month

Did you know that for every one-point drop in PSI pressure, your MPG rating lowers by 0.2%? This really starts to add up over the long haul.

When checking your PSI levels, make a point also to inspect each tire for any signs of wear or damage, like worn treads or sidewall cracks.

Limit Extra Weight

Despite its 14.3 cubic feet of trunk space, you should try to limit the amount of extra weight you carry in your car on a regular basis.
