Nissan Sentra vs Toyota CorollaNissan Sentra vs Toyota Corolla: Power

The 2020 Sentra and Corolla have comparable performance specs. Each sedan comes equipped with a 4-cylinder engine under the hood. The Nissan Sentra can deliver 149 horsepower, while the Toyota Corolla Hatchback has even more power on tap: 168 horsepower, to be exact.

Both cars pair standardly with Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) for a smoother, more efficient performance than you’d see with a manual transmission. If you prefer the sportiness of stick shift, though, only the Corolla makes a 6-speed manual transmission available.

Nissan Sentra vs Toyota CorollaCompact Car Technology & Infotainment

The Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra each come outfitted with some pretty impressive entertainment features. Each vehicle includes a dashboard-mounted 7-inch touchscreen display. The Nissan Sentra comes standard with four speakers, while the Toyota Corolla features six speakers.

Each sedan comes equipped with a hands-free Bluetooth® system for phone calls and audio streaming. They even feature AM/FM radios and USB/auxiliary inputs to connect portable media devices.

A major advantage the Toyota Corolla has is standard Apple CarPlay® integration. You can link up your iPhone and use your apps on the go! The Nissan Sentra offers this feature, but it doesn’t come standard as in the Toyota car.

Nissan Sentra vs Toyota CorollaSentra vs Corolla: Only One Hatchback

The 2020 Sentra and Corolla are both available as compact sedans. This body style is aerodynamic and especially good for fuel economy. If you need an efficient daily driver that looks sleek on the streets, you can’t go wrong with a small sedan.

However, only the Toyota car is available in hatchback form. The Corolla Hatchback earns impressive marks for its roomy cargo area—17.8 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the rear seats. That’s more space than you’ll see in the trunk of the Sentra sedan (14.3 cubic feet of cargo volume). Make even more room when you fold the rear seats!
