2017 Nissan Sentra vs. 2018 Toyota Camry Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Nissan Sentra, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry, the Nissan Sentra may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Sentra, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Nissan Sentra is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Camry. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan Sentra and the Toyota Camry have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Sentra is much slimmer than the Toyota Camry, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Nissan Sentra, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Camry.

Drivetrain
The Nissan Sentra has much less torque than the Toyota Camry, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Nissan Sentra has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Toyota Camry, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Sentra is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Camry. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan Sentra and the Toyota Camry. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Nissan Sentra as you will in the Toyota Camry.

Warranty
The Nissan Sentra comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Camry.
