When compared to rivals such as the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic, there's a whole lot to like. Our dealership offers plenty of Nissan inventory to increase the quality of your driving experience. We know Mechanicsville drivers will fall in love with the 2019 Nissan Sentra when placed alongside the competition.

The 2019 Nissan Sentra vs the 2019 Toyota Corolla

The Nissan Sentra offers more interior space than the Toyota Corolla for passengers as the lower roofline on the Toyota Corolla can allow you to feel cramped at times. With the Nissan Sentra, you get 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space in comparison to the Toyota Corolla's 13 cubic feet for essential added storage. As boasting one of the largest interiors in its class, combined with incredibly comfortable seating, the Nissan Sentra is undoubtedly a more pleasant drive for passengers.

Under the hood, the Nissan Sentra also does more than the Toyota Corolla for the Richmond driver. The base S, SV, SR, and SL trim offers a 1.8-liter inline-4 engine with a lower-end 130 horsepower option. However, an upgrade to SR Turbo and Nismo trim delivers with 188 horsepower and 177 Pound-feet of torque with the higher capacity 1.8-liter inline-4 CVT automatic engine. In comparison, the standard Toyota Corolla offers a nearly identical base engine in terms of power, but their higher-end option 1.8-liter inline-4 on the LE Eco trim has a less than stellar 140 horsepower engine. Performance is further improved With Active Understeer Control, a lightly applied braking force to the innermost front wheel which helps corner more impressively as traction increases for better handling on sharp turns.

More standard features can be seen throughout the Nissan Sentra when it comes to infotainment. The 2019 Toyota Corolla lacks Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto on a lesser infotainment screen when compared to the Nissan Sentra. A vast array of safety features is also available to rival the Toyota Corolla's extensive safety prowess. With similar safety technology, there is no dip between the two.

The 2019 Nissan Sentra vs the Honda Civic

The Honda Civic is undoubtedly a great sedan all things considered. At a much higher price tag than the Nissan Sentra, it's clear the Honda Civic might not be worth the substantial difference for some useless features. The Nissan Sentra offers bold features such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert which the Honda Civic also offers at a greater price tag.

A user-friendly infotainment system, Nissan Voice recognition, heated outside mirrors in the SR and SL models, as well as leather upholstery and a panoramic moonroof in the SL keep the quality topnotch in comparison to the Honda Civic. The Midlothian family is sure to feel comfortable and secure in the 2019 Nissan Sentra

The Bottom Line: The 2019 Nissan Sentra vs. The Rest

All three of these sedans come from reputable car brands and have a lot to offer the Chester and Glen Allen, driver. When compared to the Toyota Corolla, the Nissan Sentra offers more, room, just as many safety features, a more powerful engine, and a better handling model. When stacked against the Honda Civic, you find essentially an equal car but at the much reduced-price tag. Who wouldn't want to save thousands? We hope you visit our dealership and take the opportunity to test drive the Nissan Sentra as soon as it is convenient for you.
