Comparison Review

The Nissan Sentra offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Corolla with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Nissan Sentra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Sentra as you will with the Toyota Corolla, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Sentra will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Corolla.

The Nissan Sentra is a little wider than the Toyota Corolla, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Nissan Sentra takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Corolla.

The Nissan Sentra has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Corolla, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The Nissan Sentra has less horsepower than the Toyota Corolla, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan Sentra and the Toyota Corolla.
