2020 BMW 3 Series vs. 2020 Nissan Sentra | McAllen, TX

2020 BMW 3 Series vs. 2020 Nissan Sentra - Bert Ogden BMW in McAllen, TX

Are you in the market for a new sedan? Why settle for the everyday when you can find luxury affordably in the new 2020 BMW 3 Series? Scratch the 2020 Nissan Sentra off your list and add the BMW 3 Series to the top instead. Here’s how the two sedans stack up.

Under the Hood

The core engine powering the 2020 3 Series is a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline four-cylinder that serves up a whopping 255 horsepower and launches the sedan from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 5.3 seconds. Even more powerful is the M variant with 382 horsepower and a 4.4-second 0-to-60 mph sprint. The 2020 Nissan Sentra can’t even begin to compete; its 2.0-liter Direct Injection Gasoline four-cylinder engine manages just 149 horsepower.

In the Cabin

The interior of the 2020 BMW 3 Series is far more luxurious than that of the 2020 Nissan Sentra. Inside the 3 Series, you will find premium materials like Vernasca leather upholstery. Among the BMW 3 Series’ interior comfort and convenience features are 14-way power front seats with Electric Seat Adjustment, an engine start/stop button, and advanced vehicle and key memory system, automatic three-zone climate control, a two way moonroof, and an auto-dimming interior rearview mirror. While the Sentra offers a respectable interior, it pales in comparison to the BMW 3 Series.

The Technology Lineup

Standard safety tech in the 2020 BMW 3 Series includes Active Protection and Active Guard, which feature driver-assist technologies such as Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation that actively work to help prevent accidents under proper conditions. The 2020 Nissan Sentra also succeeds in this area with the standard Safety Shield 360. However, when it comes to connectivity, the Nissan Sentra falls behind. Features like Apple CarPlay® don’t come standard for the Sentra while smartphone integration is included in every 2020 BMW 3 Series model.
