NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nissan and Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson are partnering to make a bold statement on how the all-new Sentra can empower customers and encourage them to never settle for less.

“The ‘Refuse to Compromise’ campaign demonstrates the idea that if the all-new Nissan Sentra can punch above its weight class and aim higher, so can its drivers,” said Allyson Witherspoon, vice president, Marketing Communications and Media, Nissan North America.  “The radical redesign of this mid-size sedan delivers impressive design, handling, performance, and more standard safety technology than any other car in its class; it’s one more proof-point that Nissan can deliver exactly what customers want at an incredible value in this segment.”

During an action-packed joyride through downtown Los Angeles, Larson uses the Sentra to inspire the woman to make a case for what she deserves.

“It’s great to partner with Nissan on this inspiring campaign which is essentially about advocating for yourself and believing that you deserve a seat at the table,” said actress Brie Larson, “It’s a powerful message in a bottle that I’m so proud to be a part of.”

Today, Nissan is airing the commercial exclusively on Twitter. People across the country will be able see the ad near the top of their feed through Twitter’s First View. The spot launches on national television next week, along with behind-the-scene footage on Nissan channels.
