2019 Nissan Sentra vs 2019 Toyota Corolla

Serving Chattanooga, TN

When it comes to sedans, the vehicles are convenient to drive due to their size and the fuel-efficiency that they offer. The 2019 Nissan Sentra and the 2019 Toyota Corolla are top models in the industry that have solid reputations. If you're looking to own a new mid-size vehicle that is reliable, you'll want to compare a few of the main features of each model.

Exterior Features

The 2019 Nissan Sentra makes an impression with a stylish exterior that stands out for its sharp look due to its redesign. Its visual flair contributes to its overall appeal due to its sharp headlights and spoiler that aren't overly flashy. Its traditional shape is more fluid. Chrome accents are abundant and allow the car to look upscale, including chrome framing around the windows. The 2019 Toyota Corolla has a unique body style that looks more mature than its predecessor and looks sleek on the highway. The oversized grille is designed to look high-end but appears cheap and overly dramatic. LED headlights look appealing and add an athletic design to the body while also improving visibility on the road.


The 2019 Nissan Sentra impresses with turbocharged options that are available and is built with a more powerful engine than most of its rivals. The car is powered by a 1.8-liter inline-4 engine that generates 124 horsepower and has 125 pound-feet of torque. Those who select the SR Turbo and Nismo models can take advantage of 188 horsepower that is available with a 177 lb-ft of torque due to the 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that is offered. Handling is also excellent, which allows the car to feel controlled on winding and curvy roads, and even guarantees a few joy rides. The new Corolla is equipped with a 1.8-liter I-4 engine that has 132 horsepower and can be paired with a six-speed manual or CVT. The car may look fast but is slower than its rivals and isn't functional for most driving situations compared to the Sentra. The car's fuel efficiency is with 30-34 combined, which isn't competitive for its class and will mean spending more money to get around. The front-wheel drive also comes standard.


A significant amount of space is available in the new Sentra with headroom that is generous in both the front and back row. An optional moonroof is available to increase visibility to the outdoors. Large rear doors are also provided, which makes it easy to get in and out of the vehicle comfortably. 50.9 inches of hip room is also available, allowing tall passengers to ride comfortably in the sedan. Leather upholstery is an optional upgrade that increases the upscale appeal of the cabin. Power driver seats are also available for added convenience. Inside of the 2019 Toyota Corolla, a spacious interior is available in the front and back seat. Most of the interior materials feel cheap due to the plastic parts that are used, which reduce the level of comfort that is provided. The visibility is also limited in the back row, which can affect the overall quality of the ride for passengers. The seats are also overly firm and don't have much cushion compared to the Sentra's seats, which can be problematic if you have a long commute or drive.
