2018 Toyota Corolla vs 2018 Nissan Sentra

At Fox Toyota, we truly believe there is a car for everyone. Whether you love muscle cars of the past, like all the bells and whistles, or just want something to get you from point A to point B, you can find it at a car dealership near you. We love finding just the right model for each customer. Today, let's focus on some models for car shoppers who appreciate practicality and sticking to the budget with a 2018 Toyota Corolla vs 2018 Nissan Sentra comparison.

While some budget-minded car shoppers might immediately lean towards the 2018 Sentra thanks to its smaller price tag, we urge them to take a closer look because the fuel economy and list of standard features on the base 2018 Toyota Corolla more than makes up the difference. The base 2018 Nissan Sentra in comparison doesn't even come standard with automatic transmission. Learn more about the standard features of both models below.

2018 Toyota Corolla Offers Surprisingly Long List of Standard Features

While neither the 2018 Toyota Corolla or the 2018 Nissan Sentra will blow your socks off with amenities (they are built for function), we think practical car shoppers will get even more than they expected with the 2018 Corolla. Included on the base trim is creature comforts like a height-adjustable driver's seat, Bluetooth compatibility, a USB port, a six-speaker sound system, and Siri Eyes Free. Also standard on all trims is the Toyota Safety Sense suite of active safety features including dynamic radar cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams. In comparison, the 2018 Sentra doesn't have active safety on its base model and car shoppers will have to pay extra for a higher trim level if they want it.

To see the 2018 Toyota Corolla models available now at Fox Toyota, car shoppers can visit the inventory page on the website or they can stop by the dealership during normal business hours. We also encourage anyone interested in the 2018 Corolla to take it for a test drive because the best way to know if you like a vehicle is to take it for a spin.
