Lokey Nissan is the premier Nissan dealership serving Clearwater St. Petersburg New Port Richey Wesley Chapel, and we are thrilled to introduce the 2022 Nissan Sentra. With the Sentra, Nissan continues to strike an excellent balance between the affordable no-frills sedans and the pricey high-end models. For the 2022 edition, Nissan has made the three available trim levels—S, SV and SR—even more compelling by adding more features and options and refining some of the equipment that was already available. The Sentra also gets the Midnight Edition treatment. This is an appearance package that Nissan has been rolling out through much of its lineup, and it delivers a much sleeker and sportier aesthetic.
The 2022 Nissan Sentra in Clearwater is a smaller sedan, so it measures a bit more than 15 feet. That means it is easy to park and convenient to navigate through tighter urban environments. Sixteen- to 18-inch wheels are available. The standard wheels are steel with full wheel coverings, but the optional wheels and those included with the upper trim levels are aluminum-alloy. The SV trim level adds heated side mirrors. The SR trim level adds all LED exterior lighting, including fog lamps, and a rear spoiler. It also gives you the option of the Midnight Edition kit mentioned in the introduction. That adds a wide range of dark-themed exterior accents that provide the sleeker and sportier aesthetic.
Designing a compact sedan does not mean being resigned to a cabin that is crowded and uncomfortable. The 2022 Nissan Sentra in Clearwater is certainly proof of that. The 44 inches of front legroom that it provides is among best in class and means that even taller drivers are accommodated, and the 35 inches of legroom in the rear seat means that your adult passengers will be comfortable. In addition, at more than 14 cubic feet, the Sentra has one of the larger trunks among similarly sized vehicles. Another reason to like the Sentra is one of the most well-equipped cabins in the segment, and the upper trims add niceties like sport seating, automatic climate control and push-button start.
Every 2022 Nissan Sentra in Clearwater has a front-wheel-drive layout. All models also have the same powertrain, which is discussed in the next section, but there are some mechanical differences between the SR and the other trim levels. The most notable of these is an enhanced suspension that has been designed to enhance ride comfort and improve handling. If you would like to experience the suspension differences firsthand, we recommend a test-drive at your convenience at our Nissan dealership serving Clearwater St. Petersburg New Port Richey Wesley Chapel.
Every Sentra has a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that is rated for 140 hp and 146 lb.-ft. That engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission. The CVT distributes power to the front wheels and simulates the shifting points of a traditional transmission. This powertrain has reviewed well with automotive journalists with many praising the acceleration, smoothness, braking power and fuel performance. These characteristics make it an excellent option whether you will use the vehicle to run errands around town or will be driving long stretches of highway each day to reach work and return home.
The Sentra features the latest infotainment technologies from Nissan. The base model has a 7-inch touchscreen. The upper two trim levels have an 8-inch touchscreen. As you expect from Nissan, even the base model comes with most of the driver assists that are available for the Sentra. These include systems to monitor your blind spots and to avoid collisions and detections. The only tech not included in the base package is adaptive cruise control, and that is included with SV and SR trim levels.
