In this comparison, you’ll see how these models stack up when it comes to performance, space, comfort, and technology. Let’s get started by peeking under the hood.
INTELLIGENT AROUND VIEW® MONITOR
If you’re looking for a compact car that’s going to breathe some life into your daily drive, the Nissan Sentra and the Hyundai Elantra will deliver.
Both models come standard with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. Once you press the gas pedal, however, you’ll notice the difference of the Nissan Sentra.
The Sentra provides a potent combination of 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. The Elantra, on the other hand, only provides 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque with its standard powertrain.
Both models come with their own version of a Continuously Variable Transmission. They provide virtually gearless shifts, which helps offer a smooth ride and optimizes fuel economy.
So, sprinting out of a stoplight will be filled with oomph and will feel effortless.
The cabin of your next sedan should provide the space, comfort, and convenience you crave. The Sentra and the Elantra deliver in this regard; plus, they introduce you to stylistic points and accommodations that you didn’t even know you wanted or needed.
Inside the cabin, the Sentra goes to town when it comes to space and comfort. This model offers 44 inches of front-row legroom, so you’ll have all the space you need to stretch out. In the Elantra, however, you’ll only get 42.3 inches of front legroom.
The Sentra steps it up in terms of style with several seating surfaces to choose from. Opt for Premium Cloth seat trim, stylish Sport Cloth, Prima-Tex™ with contrast orange stitching, or high-class quilted leather-appointed seats. The Elantra, only gives you the option of cloth or leather seating.
When it comes to cargo space, the Sentra and the Elantra are evenly matched with about 14 cubic feet of trunk space. The Sentra takes the cake when it comes to convenience, though, thanks to its standard 60/40-split fold-down rear seats. You’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim to get the same feature with the Elantra.
Safety is a top priority for both Nissan and Hyundai, which is why the Sentra and the Elantra are decked out with some of the most advanced active safety features on the market.
These models have several features in common, including available systems like:
* Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
* Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
* High Beam Assist
* Lane Departure Warning
* Intelligent Cruise Control
Under the guidance of these features, you’ll feel even more confident on the roads.
When it comes to visibility, though, the Nissan Sentra has the Elantra beat with its available class-exclusive Intelligent Around View® Monitor. This system provides a 360° bird’s-eye view of your surroundings so you can more precisely maneuver into tight spots.
The Elantra has an impressive powertrain and some cool tech features, but if you’re looking for more promising performance, comfort, and safety technology, the 2022 Nissan Sentra is the full package.
