Nissan Sentra Engine

The Sentra and Corolla showcase a few differences with their respective engine setups. The Nissan Sentra comes outfitted with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that’s capable of boasting 149 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque.

The Corolla, on the other hand, comes standard with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, but it’s limited by its 139 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque output. Both engines come equipped with respective Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs).

Sentra vs Corolla: Interior Space

While the 2020 Nissan Sentra is categorized as a compact car, this vehicle provides riders and drivers alike with all the space they need for both long and short drives. In the front two seats of the Sentra, you’ll have 38.9 inches of headroom and a whopping 44 inches of legroom.

Additionally, in the Sentra, you’ll have 14.3 cubic feet of interior cargo room. Combine this roominess with the standard 60/40-split fold-down rear seats, and you’ll almost forget that this car is considered a compact car.

Compare this to the 2020 Toyota Corolla, which has 38.3 inches of front-row headroom and 42 inches of front-row legroom. Unfortunately, you’ll also have less packing options, with only 13.1 cubic feet of cargo volume in the Corolla.

You can count on both the 2020 Nissan Sentra and the 2020 Toyota Corolla to have your back while you drive. They do this with their many advanced safety features, starting with their standard Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems and Rearview Camera.
