What is a 2016 Nissan Sentra’s oil type?

I’ve been driving my mom’s car for the past couple of months while mine has been in the shop, and I want to change the oil for her before I give it back. What type of oil does a 2016 Nissan Sentra use?

How awesome of you to think of changing your mom’s oil for her! Her 2016 Nissan Sentra uses full synthetic SAE 0W-20 oil and you’ll need 4.2 quarts for a full change.
Synthetic oils usually cost more, but they provide better engine protection than regular oils. Synthetic oil also lasts longer, so you can usually go longer between changes.
