How The Nissan Sentra CVT Works
Gone are the days when manufacturers felt the answer to improved performance was to add gears, Nissan CVT virtually eliminates them. The Nissan Sentra CVT uses a single metal belt that runs around pulleys. Once a transmission isn’t limited by fixed gears, as in the CVT, your vehicle can operate more effectively by responding with a perfect engine speed when you accelerate or decrease your speed.
When accelerating, conventional automatic transmission shift between set gears as the power builds, with the loss of power in between gears which is shown when the need drops. The power builds continuously in the Nissan Sentra CVT because the CVT chooses from a much wider range of ratios, allowing it to reach that “in between spot” that transmissions with set gears can’t.
The new 2015 Nissan Sentra features the newest version of the Nissan CVT with key updates that provide an improved fuel efficiency. Some key updates to the Nissan Sentra CVT Next-Generation Xtronic CVT include;
