2020 Toyota Corolla

Here at Norm Reeves Toyota San Diego, our team wants drivers from the San Diego, Chula Vista, and El Cajon, CA, areas to understand as much as possible about the Toyota Corolla and the 2020 Nissan Sentra. That’s why we’ve created this comparison between these two compact vehicles. Contact us with any questions!

Toyota Corolla vs Nissan Sentra: Interior Features

2020 Toyota Corolla We’ll get started with the cabins—features and amenities, specifically. The 2020 Toyota Corolla has sport seats that are available in a combination of SofTexÒ bolsters and sport fabric inserts. While the 2020 Sentra offers its own upholsteries (including Premium Cloth, Sport Cloth, and others), it can’t match this combo.

Two areas where these compact cars seem to align are with the steering wheel and roof. How so? They both offer available leather-wrapped steering wheels and available moonroofs, so your hands will feel comfortable as you bask in the soft glow of the California moonlight. What’s not to love?

Toyota Corolla vs Nissan Sentra: Fuel Efficiency

However, the two can’t seem to match on the importance of fuel efficiency. The proof is in the numbers: an EPA-estimated 31 city/40 highway/34 combined MPG for the Corolla SE trim with an automatic transmission, but a cap of an EPA-estimated 29 city/39 highway/33 combined MPG for the Sentra S and SV trim levels.* The Sentra’s SR trim level’s ratings are even lower than that.

Which would you rather fill up at the pump—the more fuel-efficient vehicle or the less fuel-efficient one?

Toyota Corolla vs Nissan Sentra: Technology

2020 Toyota Corolla Last—but certainly not least—you have to ask yourself a variation of that question when it comes to tech: Would you rather drive the more technologically advanced car or the less technologically advanced one?

Granted, the differences don’t emerge when you look at their multimedia touchscreen displays. That’s because the 2020 Corolla and the 2020 Sentra both come standard with 7-inch screens and offer upgrades to 8-inch screens. You can access software like Apple CarPlayÒ on these systems. You can only interact with Amazon Alexa on the Corolla’s touchscreen, however, as this isn’t integrated into the Sentra’s screen.

The Toyota Corolla also offers Wi-Fi Connect Powered by Verizon into your cabin, whereas the Sentra doesn’t. Your passengers will appreciate this as they’re browsing the web on their smartphones, looking for the next song to play over the available JBL® w/Clari-Fi® audio system, which has nine speakers. On the other hand, the Sentra’s optional Bose® Premium Audio System can only offer you eight speakers.
