Nissan Sentra InteriorOne of the key elements most of us look for when shopping around for our next car is comfort inside the cabin.

In this category, it appears to be the Sentra that comes out on top. It supplies you and one of your passengers with plenty of headroom and legroom up in the front seats. The headroom measurement comes to 39.4 inches, and there are 42.5 inches of legroom. This theme of comfort on the part of the 2019 Sentra continues as its hip room measurement in the back row allows those folks to enjoy a total of 50.1 inches.
The 2019 Toyota Corolla falls short in all three areas. It only offers 38.3 inches of headroom in the front, its front legroom is 42.3 inches, and its backseat hip room measurement also falls short at 43.9 inches.


As we remain inside the cabins, we’ll take a look at the technology that both of these cars use to improve the drive. The 2019 Nissan Sentra offers a 7-inch infotainment system touch screen that makes it easy for you to access its controls on the dashboard. The screen in the Corolla Nissan Sentra Technologyis not as accessible as it only measures at 6.1 inches.

The Nissan Sentra is available with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. This gives you and everyone else you’ve got onboard the opportunity to access your favorite smartphone apps. This is not an available feature in the Toyota Corolla.


In the Sentra, there are three powertrains from which you can choose. With these, you get a wide range of power. The standard 1.8L 4-cylinder engine paired wit a 6-speed manual transmission provides you with 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The Nissan Sentra is available with an Xtronic CVT®. This one delivers an output of 124 horsepower along and 125 lb-ft of torque. There’s also the available 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which produces up to 188 horsepower with 177 lb-ft of torque.

The Toyota Corolla only provides you with two choices under the hood. Its standard 1.8L 4-cylinder engine is able to generate 132 Nissan Sentra Gas Mileagehorsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The available 1.8L 4-cylinder engine gives you 140 horsepower with 126 lb-ft of torque. The wider range of horsepower provided by the Sentra allows you to choose the engine that specifically suits your needs.


As this 2019 Nissan Sentra vs. Toyota Corolla comparison clearly shows, the Sentra proves itself to be the better choice because of its comfortable interior, convenient technology, and wide-ranging performance capabilities.
