Every 2022 Nissan Sedan Is Recommended by Consumer Reports

Nissan makes a lot of cars for the market, and sometimes, they don’t perform as well as their competitors do. With that being said, this isn’t the case with the 2022 model year of Nissan sedans, as Consumer Reports recommend every single 2022 Nissan sedan. Here’s a look at how those great 2022 Nissan Sedans scored.

The 2022 Nissan Versa subcompact sedan

According to Consumer Reports, the Nissan Versa is the smallest sedan option currently in Nissan’s lineup. In addition to being a small car, it also has the worst overall score of all Nissan sedans. However, its overall score of 62 out of 100 is still enough for Consumer Reports to recommend it to customers.

The Versa’s road test score is 61 out of 100, and its predicted reliability score is 3 out of 5. However, its predicted owner satisfaction rating is only a 2 out of 5. Regardless, these scores are enough to earn this small Nissan sedan first place in its segment. The Versa currently starts at about $15,000, and it also earned a Green Choice badge from Consumer Reports.

The 2022 Nissan Sentra compact sedan 

Compared to its smaller sibling, the Nissan Sentra has a much better overall score of 77 out of 100, and it is ranked second in its segment, right after the Subaru Impreza. The Sentra’s great overall score is primarily due to its road test score, an 81 out of 100. 

However, just like the smaller Versa, the Sentra also received a 3 out of 5 for its predicted reliability rating and a 2 out of 5 for its predicted owner satisfaction rating. This compact sedan starts at about $20,000, and it also earned a Green Choice badge from Consumer Reports.

The 2022 Nissan Altima midsize sedan

The midsize option in the automaker’s sedan lineup, the Nissan Altima, scored very similarly to the Sentra. The Altima has an overall score of 72 out of 100, mostly thanks to its good road test score of 81 out of 100. 

Interestingly, Consumer Reports gave the Altima the same predicted reliability rating and predicted owner satisfaction rating as what the Versa and the Sentra got. Once again, the Altima has a 3 out of 5 for its predicted reliability score and a 2 out of 5 for its predicted owner satisfaction score.

That said, these scores weren’t that good compared to its peers. The Altima is only in sixth place in its segment. Still, this $25,000 Nissan also won a Green Choice badge, just like its smaller siblings did.

The 2022 Nissan Maxima full-size sedan

The biggest sedan in the lineup is the Nissan Maxima, breaking the mold that the smaller models had. The Maxima has an overall score of 79 out of 100, making it the highest-scoring sedan in Nissan’s lineup. Like the Sentra and the Altima, Consumer Reports gave the Maxima a good road test score of 81 out of 100.

Additionally, while Consumer Reports also gave the Maxima a predicted owner satisfaction rating of 2 out of 5, its predicted reliability score of 4 out of 5 is better than what the other Nissan sedans offer. 

However, the Maxima is worse than its smaller siblings in other ways. This full-size sedan starts at about $38,000, making it much more expensive than the other Nissans. Additionally, its scores put it in last place compared to other cars in its segment. Finally, while the Maxima is recommended, it didn’t get a Green Choice badge from Consumer Reports.
