On the outside, the 2018 Toyota Corolla and the 2018 Nissan Sentra are quite similar. They both have a very sleek design, four doors and come in a variety of colors. The biggest difference between the two is that the Corolla has a very prominent grill along the bottom half of the front of the car, while the Nissan Sentra has a less prominent one. This gives the Corolla a more sporty look and gives the Nissan a more traditional look.
In terms of vehicle performance, these cars are almost identical. The 2018 Nissan Sentra gets an estimated 27 MPG (miles per gallon) city and 35 MPG highway, while the 2018 Toyota gets an estimated 28 MPG city and 36 MPG highway. The horsepower of the Sentra is 124@6000 rpm while the Toyota's is 132@6000 rpm, giving them the slight edge in every category.
The 2018 Corolla offers a very modern interior with soft-touch materials and plenty of leg room. The Sentra offers much the same, although its appearance seems a little outdated and not as modern. Both cars have very spacious trunks, which should provide plenty of room for whatever you may need to transport.
The 2018 Nissan Sentra has received general positive safety reviews, although there have been a few red flags. The first of these is a poor rating from the IIHS ( Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) in regards to its headlight safety. They've also received only a four star overall rating from the NHTSA ( National Highway Traffic Administration). On the other hand, the 2018 Corolla has receive great reviews. These include a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA as well as being a 2018 Top Safety Pick from the IIHS.
When it comes to technology, the Toyota has the Sentra beat. The Sentra has a 5-inch touch screen infotainment system, along with built-in navigation, but doesn't offer much else. The Toyota offers numerous features such as voice recognition, Siri Eyes Free, a 6.1-inch touch screen infotainment system, automatic climate control, satellite radio, and a sunroof.
The Toyota difference.
Over the course of this article, I've gone over the strengths and weaknesses of both vehicles, and the Corolla is the clear winner. While both cars have very similar looks and perform almost identically, where the Toyota sets itself apart is in its safety and its technology. With multiple five-star safety reviews, a 2018 Top Safety Pick from the IIHS, and many more technological features than the Nissan Sentra, the Corolla has proven itself as the superior vehicle.
