Quick Overview

 

       The 2022 Nissan Sentra offers new All-Weather and Midnight Edition options packages

       The Hyundai Elantra was upgraded completely in the 2021 model year

       The Sentra base model offers 33 combined mpg, while the Elantra base model offers 37 mpg combined.

 

Performance

 

The 2022 Nissan Sentra is a charming compact sedan and is a great choice for those looking to save on costs. It comes with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that creates 140 horsepower and front-wheel drive with a CVT transmission.

 

The ride is comfortable and smooth which is aided by Sentra's sophisticated rear suspension system that is called Active Ride Control.

 

Redesigned last year, the 2022 Hyundai Elantra has a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with 147 horsepower and a CVT. The sporty N Line variant has a 1.6-liter turbo engine with a 7-speed DCT or a 6-speed manual transmission.

 

Interior

 

Inside the base model of the 2022 Nissan Sentra, you'll find one of the prettier designs in the compact car segment. The center of the dashboard has a trio of circular air vents above the climate controls.

 

The interior materials are a mix of hard and soft plastics, and the models that come with the quilted leather upholstery look especially upscale. Nissan also includes their extra-comfortable Zero Gravity seats, which are spacious and supportive.

 

Adults have ample space in the front and back, and seven carry-on suitcases can fit in the Sentra's 14-cubic-foot trunk.

 

To match its exterior, the 2022 Hyundai Elantra is appropriately futuristic inside. The dashboard and center console wrap around the driver while the passenger side is more minimal. A single LED strip follows the dashboard's contours across the entire width of the car.

 

The Elantra fits six carry-on cases inside its trunk, one less than the Sentra.
