The valve train is able to maximize the engine’s power and output thanks to its Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS).

2018 Nissan Sentra Drivetrain
To go along with the options you have under the hood, the 2018 Nissan Sentra also offers you a diverse lineup of transmissions.
You can have total control over the gear shifting in this front-wheel drive sedan with a traditional 6-speed manual transmission.
If you’d prefer not to worry about a clutch and let the transmission take care of shifting for you, the technology in the Xtonic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT®) is right for you.
This modern style of automatic transmission helps with faster shifting and improves the fuel economy. The 2018 Nissan Sentra gets up to an EPA-estimated 29 MPG city and 37 MPG highwayi.
There’s also a great option for blending the two driving styles. If you’re looking to manage the gear shifts and be in total control of your drive, but don’t want to worry about a clutch, check out Xtronic CVT® with Manual Shift Mode.

The 2018 Nissan Sentra sits on a suspension that’s designed for quick, agile handing. Up front there’s an independent strut front suspension. In the back, there’s a torsion beam rear suspension with integrated rear stability bar, for extra support and control.

Whichever engine, drivetrain, and trim you choose, you’re bound to get great, sporty performance. With a 106.3-inch wheelbase and a width of only 69.3 inches, the Nissan Sentra handles like a dream.
