2017 Nissan Sentra
With so many sedans on offer, it can be a challenge choosing one that offers enough space, fuel-efficiency, and features for you and your family. If you’re researching sedans with great value, chances are you’ve stumbled across the 2017 Nissan Sentra and 2017 Toyota Corolla. While it’s true that both of these five-seaters offer comparable power and utility, there are some key differences to consider. Check out our comparison of the Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra below!
Performance and Fuel-Efficiency
The 2017 Nissan Sentra FWD comes with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed manual transmission, which outputs a total of 130 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. The 2017 Toyota Sentra FWD is powered by an identical engine, but swaps the manual for a CVT, resulting in 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. In addition to its slightly stronger output, the Corolla is also more efficient, earning one mile per gallon more than the Sentra in the city and on the highway. Altogether, the 2017 Toyota Corolla scores an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/36 mpg highway rating.
Luxuries and Technologies
As two similar sedans, the new Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra offer many of the same comforts. Inside either one’s cabin, you’ll find seating for five passengers, as well as an onboard computer, cruise control, a CD player, power windows and door locks, and a split-folding rear seat. Where these two sedans differ, however, is standard technology. The Toyota Corolla comes standard with Entune Audio, which features a 6.1-inch touchscreen, a 6-speaker audio system, and Siri Eyes Free. These features are all optional upgrades for the Nissan Sentra.
Safety Ratings and Features
In NHTSA crash tests, the 2017 Nissan Sentra scored a second-best four-star overall safety rating, while the 2017 Toyota Corolla netted a top five-star score.

What’s more, the 2017 Corolla is newly equipped with standard Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS-P), which includes a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Again, the Sentra requires upgrades to obtain similar features.
