Versus Nissan Sentra

Compare The 2018 Toyota Corolla Versus The 2018 Nissan Sentra

The 2018 Toyota Corolla is a stunning sedan that offers plenty of power, fuel efficiency, technological features, interior comforts, and safety systems and is available in a wide array of trim levels and color options. Whether you're in search of a car for your day-to-day travels or you want a sedan to take you to faraway places, the Toyota Corolla may be the vehicle for you.

While the Corolla is definitely going to stand out in the sea of sedans, it does have some competition. One of its major competitors is the Nissan Sentra. Here's how these two compare and contrast.

  • Power And Performance

    Both vehicles contain multiple powertrain options, front-wheel drive, and impressive energy efficiency ratings. Up until the higher trims, the Corolla offers more horsepower and a similar amount of torque for a less expensive price. This means that you get more power, for an affordable price tag, in many of the Corolla trims. Once you do reach the higher trim levels, the Sentra adds more power, but also ups the starting MSRP by many thousands of dollars.

  • Technology And Safety

    While both the Sentra and the Corolla offer plenty of infotainment and safety technological features, the Toyota Corolla takes things up a notch by adding the outstanding Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) as a standard feature. Such programs as the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist are all added, for no additional cost, to every trim level of the Corolla. The Nissan Sentra doesn't even have some of these programs available in the lower trim levels and they certainly don't come standard.

  • Available Special Options And Trim Levels

    Six trim levels are available in both the Toyota and Nissan models, with the added Midnight Editions also available for an added fee in the Sentra model, and both come with a plethora of special features and options. For example, you can add a rear spoiler to the Toyota Corolla, to give a sportier over-all look.

Versus Ford Focus

Compare The 2018 Toyota Corolla To The 2018 Ford Focus

The 2018 Toyota Corolla is not just an exquisite, long-lasting sedan, but it's also very affordable, comes with many standard technological features, and offers plenty of space, for both your passengers and cargo. One of its closest competitors, the Ford Focus, contains many of the same features, but with less interior volume and for a higher price tag. Here's a closer look at some of the ways these two outstanding sedans compare and contrast.

  • Power And Performance

    The Corolla and Focus have similar base level powertrains, but in every trim, the Toyota Corolla produces better gas mileage, especially in the city category, and offers a more affordable over-all price.

  • Technology And Safety

    Besides a rear-view camera, the base trim of the Ford Focus doesn't offer any of the many available safety technological features. The Toyota Corolla goes above and beyond with its standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) program. This included system comes with many safety technological features, like Standard Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection, Standard Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Standard Automatic High Beams, and much more, for no additional cost.

  • Available Special Options And Trim Levels

    The Toyota Corolla comes in six trim levels, with added hatchback and eco versions, and the Ford Focus is available in five, with hatchback, electric, and high-performance varieties. While the Focus does have many packages available to be added to these many trim levels for an extra price, the Corolla comes with numerous of these added features already included. You can find such tiny details as the remote trunk release, remote fuel filler door release, MP3 Player, and more in the base trim of the Corolla. You'd have to either add it on or purchase a higher trim level to find them in the Focus.

With its many included safety technological features, powertrain options, and available trim levels, this affordable sedan should be on the top of your car buying list.

You should also expect to find the Kia Forte nearby, as it is one of the Corolla's fiercest competitors. Here's a few ways that the Toyota Corolla and Kia Forte compare and contrast.

 
  • Power And Performance

    Although the Kia Forte offers more over-all horsepower and torque, you'll find more energy efficiency in the Toyota Corolla for a less expensive price.

  •  
  • Technology And Safety

    While both models offer many infotainment and safety features, you'll only find many of these features standard in the Toyota Corolla. For example, the standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), which comes with the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High-Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, is included in every trim of the Corolla. If you want the comparable systems in the Forte, you'll have to pay extra, no matter which trim you purchase.

  • Trim Levels

The Kia Forte only offers three trim levels, the LX, S, and EX, which doesn't give you much of a choice.
