No matter which trim level you choose, the 2022 Sentra draws power from a 2-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine that outputs 149 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. This engine uses a continuously variable automatic transmission that improves the sedan's efficiency. Each new Sentra model is also outfitted with a front-wheel-drive system.

All new Sentras have performance features that help you maintain control over your vehicle, such as hill start assist, intelligent trace control, active ride control, and more. The biggest difference in performance features between the trim levels is that the S uses rear drum brakes while the top two trim levels get solid disc rear brakes for greater stopping power. Thanks to the sedan's efficiency-focused engine, all models can reach speeds of up to 39 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city.

City-Smart Safety Features

Nissan has given the Sentra access to an impressive array of city-ready driver-assist technologies that boost your confidence around other vehicles. All new Sentras are outfitted with:

  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian braking.
  • Lane departure warnings.
  • Rear automatic braking.
  • Rear cross-traffic alerts.
  • Blind-spot warnings.
  • A rearview monitor.

If you show signs of drowsiness while you're behind the wheel, the standard Intelligent Driver Alertness feature suggests you take a short break. The standard S is equipped with a cruise control system, but the top two trim levels offer an intelligent cruise control system that adjusts your Sentra's speed depending on the actions of the vehicle ahead. If you choose the SR, you can also take advantage of the optional Intelligent Around View Monitor to increase your awareness of other vehicles around your Nissan.

Exterior Features

The 2022 Sentra has a few available exterior features to enhance its visual appeal, comfort, and safety. If you want clear rear vision while driving in cold weather, choose the SV or SR to get heated side mirrors. The SR adds LED turn signal indicators to those mirrors. A power-sliding glass moonroof is available to these top two trim levels through an optional package. The SR is a sports-inspired model, complete with black side mirrors caps, a dark chrome V-Motion grille, and a body-color rear spoiler. You can also choose the SR Midnight Edition for additional paint options.


The Sentra's wheels grow larger as you move up through trim levels. The S has 16-inch wheels. The SV also comes standard with 16-inch wheels but gives you the option to switch to 17-inch versions. The SR and SR Midnight Edition come standard with 18-inch wheels instead, giving you maximum traction and speed.


Each model has automatic headlights. The S and SV have halogen headlights while the SR features LED headlights with LED signature daytime running lights. Thin projector LED headlights are available to the SR through an optional package. The SR and SR Midnight Edition come standard with LED fog lights.

Interior Features

The cabin's features are where you see the most differences when you upgrade to a higher 2022 Sentra trim level. The Sentra S starts with a basic—yet cozy—setup with high-quality air conditioning and seats trimmed in cloth. If you upgrade to the SV instead, you can also enjoy a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and a digitalized driver information cluster.

Add the All-Weather Package to your SV to prepare your Sentra for cold winters with features such as a remote engine start system that allows you to warm up your cabin before you step outside, a dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. The SV Premium Package is also available, increasing your SV's luxury factor with quilted leather upholstery and power-adjustability for the driver's seat.

Choose the SR to make the dual-zone climate control a standard feature. New offerings on this trim level include unique sport-inspired cloth seat timing with orange contrast stitches. If you prefer a more luxury-focused experience, add the SR Premium Package to get faux leather upholstery with orange contrast stitching, plus a heating system for the front seats and steering wheel.

Entertainment Tech

The S model boasts a 7-inch central touch screen. This screen offers standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility to let you create a hands-free phone experience during your drives. These programs allow you to use applications on your mobile phone so you can make calls, listen to music, and send text messages. Thanks to your Sentra's screen you never have to stop being connected to the outside world and entertained through your every drive,

Play your favorite songs through the base model's four-speaker audio system. If you move up to the SV, the touch screen gets another inch, and the audio system gets two. Further enhance your Sentra's entertainment capabilities by purchasing the SR equipped with a Premium Package, which has an eight-speaker Bose sound system and NissanConnect with a Wi-Fi hotspot.
