2018 Toyota Corolla L


2018 Nissan Sentra S

132-horsepower, 1.8L I-4 Base Engine 130-horsepower, 1.8L I-4
32 mpg Combined Fuel Economy 30 mpg
41.4 inches Rear Seat Leg Room 37.4 inches
Standard Adaptive/Intelligent Cruise Control Only available on higher trims
Under the hood, both sedans are equipped with a 1.8-liter I-4 engine that provides an exquisite blend of power and efficiency. The Toyota Corolla, however, has a better baseline combined fuel economy than the Sentra. That can likely be attributed to the Corolla's standard CVT. The Sentra, on the other hand, comes with a 6-speed manual transmission (with the option to upgrade to CVT). Although both models provide comfortable seating for five passengers, the Toyota sedan has a whopping four inches more leg room for riders in the back seat. The 2018 Corolla also comes with six speakers, compared to the Sentra's standard four-speaker audio system, as well as Adaptive Cruise Control, as a part of the standard Toyota Safety Sense suite of safety technologies.
