2020 Toyota Corolla vs 2020 Nissan Sentra: Compare Cars

The Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra have been around so long it’s easy to take them for granted. In fact, the Corolla and Sentra nameplates were born long before the majority of shoppers of compact cars. Launched in the U.S. in 1982, the Sentra has become the best-selling vehicle for Nissan over time. The Corolla, which launched for 1968, is not only Toyota’s best-selling since then, it is the world’s all-time best-selling passenger car, according to Toyota.

With domestic automakers ditching the compact car, the 2020 Toyota Corolla and 2020 Nissan Senta represent two of the best compacts, and both were redesigned for 2020. The new Sentra cuts a sportier profile and lifts the compact above the budget buy compromise, while the new Corolla accomplishes the same objective by loading it with more standard features and safety equipment.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Nissan Sentra is sportier and better equipped but is still a value. It’s still among the more mildly flavored mass-market sedans, but the 2020 Toyota Corolla has dropped the bland from its diet.
