2020 Kia Forte vs 2020 Nissan Sentra

Serving Gainesville, FL

The Kia Forte and the Nissan Sentra are impressive models of compact cars that have widespread appeal. They have been directly competing for the attention of Gainesville's drivers for a few decades, and they have both been updated through a significant generational change within the last few years. However, the 2020 Forte and the Nissan Sentra have vital differences that you should learn about before picking out your next car.


The 2020 Kia Forte has innovative, athletic styling that masterfully combines sharp, flowing accent lines with an edgy profile. This model has molded LED headlights with an X-like theme and a bow-style grille, and rectangular foglamps. In comparison, the 2020 Nissan Sentra has a tapered profile that points toward the round nose. A pointed look elevates the exterior's style through the foglamps and headlights. A U-shaped grille that is common with Nissan models completes the Sentra's look.


The Forte's appeal continues to be displayed throughout its cabin. It has sporty seats with long design elements running through the dashboard. The center console has two distinctive parts, and this integrates the gear shifter with the center stack. Additional features in the Forte are smart device integration, a sunroof, USB ports, a push-button ignition, an automatic climate control system, and other equipment. The 2020 Nissan Sentra has round air vents and a floating display screen like the Forte. It also has a traditional center console with cupholders placed to the side of the gear shifter.


Differences between the 2020 Kia Forte and the 2020 Nissan Sentra continue throughout their safety capabilities. The Forte's standard safety features include innovations like lane departure warning, lane keep assist, auto emergency braking, driver attention warning, dynamic parking guidance, and others. The Sentra's safety features include airbags, auto emergency braking, a rear monitor, and a few additional features.
