Fuel Economy and Cargo Space

Although the Toyota Corolla and the Nissan Sentra feature the same size 1.8L 4-cylinder motors, they do not have the same fuel economy. The Nissan Sentra features superior fuel economy of 29 miles per gallon city beats out the Toyota Corolla at only 28 miles per gallon city. In addition to having superior city fuel economy, the Nissan Sentra also has superior cargo space, coming in at 15.1 cubic feet verses the Corolla's 13 cubic feet.


Another important consideration to take into account when purchasing any vehicle is its size. When considering how tall drivers or passengers might be, it is important to take note that the Nissan Sentra features 1.1 inches more front headroom than the Toyota Corolla, which can ultimately offer more comfort to the driver. Keep in mind that the difference in the height category of these two sedans could very well make the driving experience much better for taller drivers and passengers who are driving a Nissan Sentra. Additionally, the Nissan Sentra is 1 inch shorter in length than the Toyota Corolla, which can make the Nissan Sentra a little easier to part and fit into smaller parking spaces.

Interior Tech

When it comes to fun, innovative and cool tech, the Nissan wins hands-down. It features a standard 7-inch touch screen display, which is nearly an inch larger than the Corolla's 6.1-inch display. It also offers speed sensitive volume control, which is not available on the Corolla LE. Meaning your tunes won't be drowned out when you go from city driving to the blare of the highway.
