Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Sentra than the Toyota Corolla Hybrid. The Nissan Sentra will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla Hybrid.

Convenience
With the Toyota Corolla Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Sentra, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Sentra will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Corolla Hybrid.

In this case, the Nissan Sentra will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Corolla Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan Sentra does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Corolla Hybrid.
