2018 Toyota Corolla vs. 2018 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo

Talking about desirable brands in Milford Connecticut, two names that would definitely come to our minds would be Toyota and Nissan. If you are stuck with a choice between the 2018 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo and the 2018 Toyota Corolla, you should go through this comparison to see why Corolla is a preferred choice.

Design & Style

At the first look, you would certainly be delighted with the impressive exterior of the vehicle. But we also need to take a peek inside. The 2018 Nissan Sentra is a user-friendly and straightforward car, with easily accessible controls. It has a large trunk, and the outward visibility is also good. There is plenty of room for adults in the large back seat of the car. The front seats are mounted somewhat high.

On the other hand, the 2018 Toyota Corolla has 60-40 folding rear seats. There is sufficient headroom and legroom for drivers and passengers to have it comfortable on the move. Easy entry and exit is a convenience, and you can easily stretch sideways. The touchscreen interface is quite responsive as well.

Technology & Safety

The technology and safety aspect of any car plays a vital role in taking the final call. For the 2018 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo, it has an easy to use infotainment system; however, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are missing. Automatic emergency braking feature is available for all versions, although you have to pay extra for a full suite of active safety technologies. There are a total of 6 airbags, including rear and front-side impact curtain airbags. Stability and traction control systems are standard, whereas blind-spot monitors are available on higher trim levels.

On the counterpart, the 2018 Toyota Corolla comes with standard safety features including rearview collision warning, pedestrian direction and emergency braking. It also offers driving assistance and lane departure warning.


In terms of performance, the Toyota Corolla is a clear winner. For the 2018 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo, it has an inline-4 1.8 liter engine that produces an output of 125 lb-ft of torque and 124 HP. This is too unattractive for the price point, given the fact that the 2018 Toyota Corolla can produce an output of 128lb-ft torque and 132 HP with the same engine specification.

The Bottom Line

By comparing and contrasting both the models, we arrive to a conclusion that in spite of Nissan Sentra having its own set of attributes, the 2018 Toyota Corolla just tips over in terms of specifications. Nissan may be a promising brand, but Toyota has automobiles offered as a total package worth the money.
