Toyota Corolla vs. Nissan Sentra

The 2016 Toyota Corolla and 2016 Nissan Sentra are both popular compact sedans, and both sell for roughly the same price and with similar specs. If you’re in the market for a compact sedan, one of these will surely do the trick, but which one is right for you? Let’s find out.

The 2016 Toyota Corolla is more luxurious.

The 2016 Corolla is graced with a sleekly redesigned exterior, a comfortable, roomy, and stylish interior, and a ton of available features to make your ride one you can be proud of. The 2016 Nissan Sentra’s lower price point shows, and when viewed next to each other, the Corolla has the look of luxury.

The 2016 Toyota Corolla has better gas mileage.

Both cars have good fuel efficiency, but the Corolla’s slight edge of 42 mpg versus the Sentra’s 40 mpg can make a difference in the long run. The 2016 Toyota Corolla’s fuel efficiency is one of the best in its class, and it’ll keep you driving without having to fill up.

Both cars are very safe, but Toyota wins in this category.
