Nissan takes pride in manufacturing beautiful vehicles, and that is precisely what they have done with the 2019 Sentra and Altima. The most significant difference between these cars when it comes to their appearance is their overall size. The new Altima is about 10 inches longer than the Sentra. This gives it a sleeker appearance. The same paint, lights, windows, wheels, and mirrors are used on both of these great cars from Nissan. A lip spoiler can be added to the new Nissan Sentra, but it is not available on the Nissan Altima.
