The 2021 Nissan Sentra: From Difficult Beginning to Accelerated Sales

The 2021 Sentra is a model that Nissan coincidentally launched at the very beginning of the virus. It was quite difficult when the dealers had to go out of business. Nissan had showrooms that were completely closed when it released its new product. "However, the momentum has accelerated in the last quarter of the year and the Sentra sales are up 30% in a segment that is down," Steve Milette, president of Nissan Canada told the Auto Guide.
