Nissan presented its 2020 year Centra of 2019 Auto Show in Los Angeles, and it looks like this thing slick. Nissan has frankly avoided the ridiculous practice of "new cars must be circular and soft" that no car maker has managed to shake sharper lines and sleek technologies – and frankly, I'm totally here for that.
The big changes are in the front and back fascia. It almost looks like someone has taken a knife to the design and carved out some of the softer curves, leaving heavier lines. It's subtle, but it's the kind of thing that sets it apart from other cars on the road.
Nissan notes in its press release that the new Centra will be two inches lower and two inches wider than the previous generation, which will make it a little more daunting and daunting in terms of attitude. Here's more about its specifications:
The 2020 Centra also features a new, fuel-efficient 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine rated at 149 hp and 146 rpm – an increase of 20 percent and 16 percent respectively. 1.8-liter engine from the previous generation. The new engine is also expected to offer improved fuel economy. Dynamic performance is greatly enhanced by the use of a new stand-alone rear suspension and a new rack power management system.
Nissan exits a lot of the improved interior, and I have to admit it looks nice. In the press photos available with the press release, the orange seams match the exterior color. If it was an option available for all the different color options, it would be pretty damn good.
The technology here also gets a nice upgrade with a seven-inch touch screen and 4.2-inch digital dial cluster with analog dial. The cluster instrument looks pretty nice – it's a good mix of old and new. Touchscreen? Well … it's a little less impressive.
Not sure why, but it just doesn't look particularly well integrated. many contrasting forms occur here. It's great that there are still options on the button below the screen, but I just can't shout with the dial that turns on each side of it. The blend of old and new that makes the dash so beautiful is not true here.
For me, changes to the exterior really do attract the updated Centra. Some of the interior choices are great – but that's nothing compared to exterior enhancements.
