Nissan Sentra vs. Toyota Corolla

Nissan and Toyota each have a headlining compact sedan in the Sentra and Corolla, respectively. Both vehicles deliver a high level of reliability, excellent gas mileage, and an extensive suite of luxury features at a value price point. But which of these compacts is better? Which one fits what you need in a sedan? Explore with us as we take a quick examination of the newest generations of Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla.

Nissan Sentra VS. Toyota Corolla: Interior And Trunk Space

Starting small, the Toyota Corolla is slightly smaller than that of the Nissan Sentra. Both vehicles are close in size and legroom and can seat up to five comfortably. Newer Nissan Sentra vehicles have an arguably more exciting interior. At the same time, the luxury options on the Corolla are standard, lending to the Toyota's higher price point. Almost all options on the Toyota are available on the Sentra and are standard on the higher-end trims. The most considerable difference between the pair is in terms of trunk space. The Nissan Sentra wins out here, allowing for significantly more cargo and a spacious back seat.

Nissan Sentra VS. Toyota Corolla: Engine And Performance

While the standard Sentra only has a single engine type on all trims, the Corolla has three different options available and a hybrid model. The Corolla has several options, although the engines are similar across all models. Here we will examine the baseline models of each. The Corolla takes a slight edge in its engine and gas mileage. The Nissan Sentra has a 2.0-liter Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine, rated at 149 hp @ 6,000 rpm. The EPA estimated city mileage is 29 MPG and 39 MPG on highways. In comparison, the baseline Toyota Corolla has a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, 169 hp @ 6600 rpm engine. EPA mileage for the Corolla is 32 MPG city and 41 MPG highway.

Nissan Sentra VS. Toyota Corolla: Final Value Comparison

The similarities between the Sentra and Corolla carry over into the price of each vehicle. As of the time of writing, new Nissan Sentra vehicles are almost 10% cheaper than most new Corollas. Despite the lower price, the Sentra does not lose out on features and safety options, lending to its higher value per dollar on new and preowned models.

Nissan Sentra VS. Toyota Corolla: Which Is Better

The Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla are both high-performing and well-priced compact sedans. They have equal seating along with a similar level of performance. But which is better? Ultimately it is a close race to call. However, we at Charlie Clark think the Nissan Sentra will win out over the Toyota Corolla. The Sentra, with its more luxurious interior, massive cargo space, and comparable engine, sets a new standard for compact sedans. Still, want to find out for yourself? Call, go online, or come on in to schedule a test drive of a new or pre-owned Nissan Sentra today. Find your next car at Charlie Clark Nissan, El Paso.

Nissan Sentra vs. Honda Civic

The compact vehicle segment is highly competitive, with the Nissan Sentra and the Honda Civic often at the top of the list regarding awards and accolades. If you’re currently in the market for a new compact vehicle, we thought it would be a good idea to showcase both of these vehicles to help you choose which is best for you. Suppose you’re interested in test-driving the Nissan Sentra in particular. In that case, you can always head down to our Charlie Clark Nissan El Paso dealership to help you decide when it comes to the battle of Nissan Sentra vs. Honda Civic!

Interior Ascents Abound in the New Nissan Sentra When it comes to the interior of the battle between the Nissan Sentra and the Honda Civic, the Sentra comes out ahead in several different ways. Nissan has invested in updating the interiors of many of its models, including the Sentra. You’ll enjoy nicely appointed faux carbon fiber accents and a well-thought-out instrument panel with a touchscreen and other dials and buttons that put everything you need right at your fingertips. Additionally, upgraded upholstery makes the interior of the Sentra look a bit more luxurious than its consumer-friendly price tag.

Technology is a Clear Winner for the Nissan Sentra over the Civic Nissan put quite a bit of thought into the touchscreen on the new Nissan Sentra. Rather than use a completely digital touchscreen, Nissan opted for a combination touchscreen with gauges and buttons that make for a more user-friendly experience. The Sentra’s touchscreen is 8-inches compared to the Civic’s 9-inch screen, but it offers a brighter display that seems clearer and easier to read. Both vehicles offer the latest connectivity and premium options if you’re looking to jam out in your new ride! Nissan Sentra Smokes the Competition When it Comes to Exterior Appearance Nissan has updated the exterior of the Sentra in the past few years to make it much sportier. This is due to sleek LED headlights and an updated grille that creates a “meaner” look than Sentra’s of years past. If you upgrade to the SR trim, you’ll enjoy a blacked-out roof, wheels, mirrors, and trim that make the Sentra shine compared to the more “bashful” Civic!

The Price is Right for the Sentra in this Showdown with the Civic While price is not everything, it’s hard to overlook the much lower price tag of the Nissan Sentra compared to the Civic. Sentra's lowest trim comes in around 15% cheaper than a comparable Civic. This is a big difference and why more and more consumers in El Paso and the surrounding areas are choosing the Nissan Sentra for their new ride! Head Down to
