The 2022 Nissan Sentra is proof that big things come in small packages. Its strong power train, excellent steering and roomy cabin give it a delightful driving experience. But can it compete with the likes of the 2022 INFINITI Q50, a car which continues to dominate rivals due to its fantastic styling, potent V6 power and enhanced infotainment?
Design & Style
The INFINITI Q50 seats a maximum of five, and does so comfortably. The exterior is sharp as a razor, with seventeen inch wheels made from aluminum alloy which prove this car was built for speed. Passengers seated in back will have a maximum of 35.1 inches worth of leg room, and there is also plenty of storage for cargo. The newest Nissan Sentra is sportier than previous generations. It has a wider frame, with the option of fabulous colors such as Monarch Orange Metallic. The eighteen inch alloy wheelbase has been slightly extended to give it a more athletic appearance. Inside, passengers will sit in quilted leather seats, with a beautiful tan and black surface. The vents and controls are displayed horizontally and are simple for drivers and passengers to access and use.
Technology & Safety
The Nissan Sentra has received a five star safety score from federal testers. It has outstanding frontal impact protection and is equipped with a large suite of safety countermeasures that are active and referred to officially as Nissan Safety Shield 360. This includes warnings when departing lanes, emergency automatic brakes, high beam assistance and driver monitoring. Luxuries within the cabin include seven inch screens, keyless remote entry, Bluetooth, one USB port and powered locks and windows. The INFINITI Q50 has received praise for its rollover protection but is also equipped with blind area monitoring, a camera with surround view, lane and cruise control and good outward vision. Cabin perks include Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, two screen infotainment, powered seats that can be adjusted eight ways, climate control and a power moonroof.
The INFINITI Q50 is one of the most powerful cars in its class. Base models are equipped with a V6, twin turbo engine that can generate 300 horsepower with 295 pounds of torque, and buyers can upgrade to the 400 horsepower Red Sport Edition. The Nissan Sentra is equipped with an inline 4, 2 liter engine that can generate a maximum of 149 horsepower with 146 pounds of torque.
The Bottom Line
The Nissan Sentra is a nice-looking vehicle with lots of great features, but it is completely outclassed by the INFINITI Q50 which has double the engine power.
