If you are in the market for a new sedan, there are many worthy options hitting the market in 2019. Both the Corolla and Sentra have a lot going for them this year, but the Corolla beats out the Sentra in a few key areas. Although the numbers for both cars are similar, every extra MPG or inch or space adds up when you are driving a car for years to come. As everyone knows, Toyota has a reputation for making cars that last for decades.

Fuel Economy

With gas prices always seemingly on their way up, every extra mile you can go per gallon matters. The Corolla beats out the Sentra in fuel efficiency. In the city, the Corolla gets you 28 MPG compared to the Sentra’s 27 MPG. Out on the highway, the Corolla gets you 36 MPG instead of the 35 MPG you would get out of the Sentra. Both vehicles come with a 13.2 gallon gas tank. No matter where you drive, the Corolla will get you further between fill-ups with its combined MPG of 32 clearly beating out the Sentra’s combined 30.

Horsepower

Again, this is an area where the two cars deliver similar numbers. Both vehicles use an inline-four engine. The Corolla edges out the Sentra yet again, delivering 132 horsepower @ 6000, as compared to the Sentra’s 130 horsepower @ 6000. You might expect the more fuel efficient car to have less power, but as you can see, the opposite is true.

Legroom

For the comfort of your passengers, the Toyota Corolla has given the back seat more legroom than the Nissan Sentra. The Corolla has 41.4 inches in the rear, whereas the Sentra has 34.7 inches. In the front, both vehicles offer the same amount of legroom, with roughly 42.5 inches.
