Discover how the Nissan Sentra Sedan Measures up to its Memphis Competition

If you're looking for a quality sedan in the greater Memphis area, you have plenty of options from which to choose. So many, in fact, it can prove almost impossible to research them all well enough to come to an informed decision. That's why we decided to offer our Collierville, Southaven, Barltett, Cordova, and Lakeland customers a handy guide to the important differences between our Nissan Sentra and two of its popular rivals: the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla. We invite you to read on and see how things shook out when we compared entry-level models of each sedan.

Nissan Sentra vs. Toyota Corolla


Introductory models of both sedans are priced nearly the same, but once again the Sentra comes equipped with features that would run up the Corolla's price tag if you were to add them as options. One other cost factor to consider? The Sentra comes with a complimentary roadside assistance plan that covers you for 36 months or 36,000 miles; the roadside assistance plan for the Corolla ends a full year earlier, after just 24 months.


The Sentra again boasts the tighter turning radius and taller vehicle height over its rival, and also boasts the stylistic flair of a chrome bumper and 16-inch wheels. The Corolla rides on 15-inch wheels and has a grille that some find unattractive.


The Sentra has overhead console storage and a split-folding rear seat, two features that are missing from the Corolla. With more headroom and legroom for the driver and front-seat passenger, the Sentra offers a much more comfortable ride on long road trips. Since the Sentra also boasts the larger trunk of the two sedans, it also allows you to take more luggage on those road trips!


The remote keyless entry fob for the Sentra offers controls for the trunk and door, while the Corolla doesn't even offer remote entry at all. The Corolla's windshield wipers are set to fixed intervals, offering less adaptability than the variable speed intermittent wipers that are standard issue on the Sentra. Dual-zone climate control allows the driver and front passenger to set their own temperature preferences, while the Corolla makes one have to adapt to the other's settings.
