This year's Nissan Sentra is mechanically and cosmetically unchanged. With the exception of one new package for each of the SV and SR trims. Despite the fact that there are no substantial changes this time around, the Sentra has received a $500 price increase across all three trim levels. The Nissan Sentra, which competes in the small sedan sector, borrows heavily from the more expensive Altima. While the Sentra's plethora of standard features and driver aids make it an attractive choice in this category.
The Sentra's only drawback is that it only comes with one engine, transmission, and drivetrain choice. For many purchasers, this limits their options because the stock powerplant is neither speedy nor efficient. Nissan does offer the SR trim on the Sentra, however unlike the SR trim on the Altima, which comes with a turbocharged engine, the SR trim on the Sentra is only cosmetic. Despite this, the 2022 Sentra is a solid, no-frills small car that continues to sell well.
The aesthetics of the 2022 Nissan Sentra will be carried over from the 2020 model year. The revamp gave it a more mature and refined appearance, while also receiving positive feedback from customers. With a tall wrinkled hat, the front flaunts the athletic and slightly aggressive outfit.
The large Nissan V-motion grille adds to the aggression of the design.
Moving to the sides, the stance is aesthetically pleasing, with crisp body lines, minimal ground clearance, and a coupe-like back glass that adds to the car's maturity. The Sentra has a 106.6inch width between the wheels and a bumper-to-bumper length of 182.7 inches. Overall, the sedan stands out from the multitude of competitors.
The 2022 Nissan Sentra would continue to be the heaviest small car on the market, but its low ground clearance gives it a sportier appearance. The 2022 Hyundai Elantra has a long body, while the Honda Civic has the longest wheelbase in the category. The other two sedans, the Sentra and Corolla, are also stylish and enticing. The Elantra, which is closely followed by the new Civic, is the one to opt for if you want something that seems more current in terms of appearance. Exterior features include:
The interiors of the 2022 Nissan Sentra will be similar to those of the previous model year, with no substantial changes. To appeal to a wide range of consumers, the interior is simple, modern, and stylish. In terms of support and comfort, the Zero Gravity front seats are unrivaled. The riding height is appropriate and easily adjustable. Even the tallest passengers will not feel cramped in the rear seats, which are commendably large.
The interior design is discreet and simple, however there is an excessive use of harsh plastics, making the cabin appear cheap. The higher trims, on the other hand, include more luxuriouslooking upholstery. With no changes to the interior, the 2022 Nissan Sentra remains comfortable and spacious for its passengers.
There will be no modifications in terms of entertainment. The Nissan Sentra 2022 will keep its floating hands-free 7-inch touchscreen display in the middle of the dashboard, along with tactile knobs and buttons for added convenience. Buyers may also choose for an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The HVAC system has hard buttons as well, making it simple to use.
Bluetooth connection, USB-C ports, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are all available. A 4speaker sound system is standard on lesser trims, but an 8-speaker Bose premium sound system is available on the SR trim. In terms of cargo space, the Sentra's trunk offers 14.3 cubic feet, which is above average for the sector.
Interior features include:
The 2.0-liter naturally aspirated inline-4 engine that produces 149 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of peak torque will remain in the 2022 Nissan Sentra. The engine comes standard with a CVT transmission and front-wheel drive. The engine's power distribution is linear, and this, along with the Sentra's CVT transmission and its greater curb weight, means the Sentra isn't the quickest sedan in its class.
The 2022 Sentra accelerates from zero to sixty miles per hour in less than nine seconds, while its competitors take a little longer. When pushed on the highways, the Sentra makes more noise and doesn't gain much in terms of speed. As a result, it's best utilized as a smooth everyday driver with some highway trips thrown in.
When equipped with the larger alloy wheels, the Sentra's ride quality remains firm yet comfortable enough to absorb small road bumps and undulations. Although we believe that reducing the wheel size would improve the ride quality even further. It doesn't have the same level of handling as the Mazda 3 or the new Civic, but it's still acceptable, with some body roll and understeer. The 2022 Nissan Sentra, with its normally aspirated engine and CVT, should have produced excellent results, but its greater curb weight prevents this. With no changes to the powertrain, the 2022 Sentra achieves 29/39/33 MPG in the city, highway, and combined. The 2022 Sentra will also include a 12.4-gallon gasoline tank, the shortest among the rivals, with a highway range of 484 miles.
The safety features on the 2022 Nissan Sentra will not be significantly improved. It will keep the same strong structure and chassis as the 2021 Sentra, which won the IIHS' "2021 Top Safety
Pick" award and received a flawless score from the NHTSA in overall safety ratings. Nissan's
Safety Shield 360 is planned to be added to the Sentra's already extensive list of features in 2022.
