Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry Hybrid than the Nissan Sentra, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Sentra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Nissan Sentra will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Nissan Sentra is a little narrower than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Hybrid.

Handling
The Nissan Sentra has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Camry Hybrid, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Nissan Sentra doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

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 Hybrid.

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