2020 Nissan Sentra MPG by Trim Level

Nissan Sentra MPG

The 2020 Nissan Sentra is quite efficient. Its EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings are thanks to its expert engineering under the hood, an ideal engine and transmission pairing.

The Sentra, across all trim levels, is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) engine that is paired to an Xtronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This pairing results in an achieved EPA-estimated 29 city/39 highway/33 combined MPG.1

However, if you move to the highest trim—the SR—you’ll see a slight dip in the fuel economy. With this trim, though the engine and transmission are the same, the EPA-estimated gas mileage comes in at 28 city/37 highway/32 combined MPG.1

More Ways the Nissan Sentra Helps Efficiency

Nissan Sentra MPG

Though the main reason the 2020 Sentra has such a remarkable EPA-estimated fuel economy is due to its performance equipment, there are more ways this sport sedan helps you visit the gas station less often.

All the equipment in this vehicle was engineered to give you the best driving experience possible, and that means limiting your time filling up the tank. Here are some of the available systems you can utilize to save on gas.

  • Remote Engine Start System: The Sentra is available with a remote-start system that readies your sedan before you even step out the door. This allows you to “warm up” your vehicle before driving. The engine will then use less power, resulting in an improved fuel economy.
  • Nissan Sentra MPG Intelligent Cruise Control: Using sensors located around the vehicle, this system will keep you a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. It will also brake and accelerate when needed. Without you continually cycling through speeds, it aids in an efficient drive on the highway.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: When a vehicle’s tires aren’t filled to the correct PSI, one of the first things you’ll notice is a poor fuel economy. With this system, the Sentra will let you know when it’s time to fill up and with Easy-Fill Tire Alert, it’ll notify you when you’ve reached the perfect tire pressure.
  • Hill start assist: When you’re on an incline, this system will help keep you from rolling backward, saving gas that would be used struggling to stay in place on a hill.
  • Smartphone integration: Via Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth®, you can connect your smartphone right into your 2020 Sentra. This allows you to access maps on your dashboard touchscreen, so you can get to where you’re going safely and efficiently.
