2016 Toyota Corolla vs. 2016 Nissan Sentra

If you're shopping for a sedan, the 2016 Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra are two standout options. Each evolved into well-rounded, efficient sedans since they first debuted on the market, and their latest models deliver peppy performances to keep drivers throughout South Brunswick Township, Plainsboro Township and New Brunswick engaged.

Deciding between the 2016 Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra can be tough. That's why Dayton Toyota breaks down their features side-by-side in a 2016 Toyota Corolla vs. Nissan Sentra comparison below. If you're considering a new car, read on to decide which option is best for you. 

Interior Design and Storage Space

The Toyota Corolla enters the 2016 model year with the same attractive exterior as its predecessor. From tip to tail, the 2016 Toyota Corolla's bold accents and sleek silhouette are designed to turn heads.

Inside, the Corolla fits five passengers comfortably and leaves plenty of cargo room to spare. Its cabin offers 97.5 ft3 of passenger volume, which means you'll have plenty of space for kids, cargo and everything in between.

Compared to the Sentra, the 2016 Toyota Corolla has the advantage in terms of space. The Sentra's cabin offers just 95.9 ft3of interior volume and becomes claustrophobic when it's packed with passengers and cargo. If storage is a concern, the 2016 Toyota Corolla might be a better choice.

Powerful and Efficient Performances

In terms of fuel economy, the 2016 Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra are excellent options. The 2016 Sentra delivers an EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway and is engineered to maximize power and efficiency. However, the 2016 Toyota Corolla's ultra-efficient LE Eco trim edges it out, producing an EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway.

The 2016 Corolla can also produce 10 more horsepower than the Nissan Sentra, which is only capable of 130-horsepower. This translates to sharper acceleration and energetic driving dynamics whenever you hit the Corolla's gas pedal.

Technology at Your Fingertips

To keep you connected, the 2016 Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra are available with Infotainment systems that include app integration, navigation, music streaming and more. Each system - the Sentra's NissanConnectSM and Corolla's EntuneTM Premium Audio - is embedded in the front console to put your favorite media at the tips of your fingers.

In addition to their infotainment features, each car offers Bluetooth® hands-free audio, allowing you to make and receive calls while your smartphone is locked away in your pocket. That way, you can keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
