2016 Toyota Corolla vs 2016 Nissan Sentra
The Corolla is the oldest vehicle on the Toyota lineup, and may just be one of the oldest vehicles available on the North American market. After 5 decades and 11 generations of the vehicle, the Corolla proves just how true the old adage about getting better with age is. The 11th generation of the Corolla kicked off in 2013, and it is one of the most stylish versions we’ve ever seed, packed full of premium content. We thought it might be a good idea to see how the compact car measures up to another in its segment, so we decided to compare the 2016 Toyota Corolla vs 2016 Nissan Sentra to see which vehicle is superior.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Corolla
As you can tell by looking at the table above, the specifications of each vehicle are nearly identical, but the Corolla tends to squeak out the victory even if only by a little. Starting from the top of the table, the Corolla does achieve better combined fuel efficiency, but only by 0.3 l/100km. It also has more power, but only by 2 horsepower.
Generally when the advantage is that small for horsepower, we look to curb weight to see if our vehicle weighs a good deal less, because that is essentially another power advantage. In this case though, the Corolla only weighs 48 lbs. less. So the Corolla does have the advantage, but it’s not that steep.
And unfortunately, the Sentra actually takes the slight advantage in terms of passenger volume, offering 0.5 cu. ft. of extra space in the cabin. At least its one advantage is as small as the Corolla’s are. If these small advantages aren’t enough to convince you that the 2016 Toyota Corolla is the best choice in the compact sedan market, then we would instead turn your attention to the incredible suite of safety features and driver-assistive technologies that make the Corolla such a safe vehicle to drive through Edmonton.
