The 2019 Sentra SR Turbo and Sentra Nismo are each motivated by a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine that can yield up to 188 horsepower. If you prefer to manage your gear changes, we suggest the six-speed manual transmission. Take home a new Sentra S with its naturally aspirated 1.8-Liter engine and enjoy up to 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Toyota Corolla LE also comes standard with a 1.8-liter engine that produces up to 128 lb-ft of torque, but you won't find a 1.6-Liter turbocharged engine on the Toyota. Choose a Sentra SV for the Xtronic® Continuously Variable transmission and enjoy smooth, crisp shifts for a comfortable drive. If the situation calls for more power, slide into Manual Shift Mode and take command of the revs. For a spirited drive, choose a 2019 Sentra with Nismo-tuned suspension instead of a standard Corolla.


The 2019 Nissan Sentra arrives with a track-inspired design. The sculpted rear and front grille accentuate a sporty profile. The cabin of the Sentra Nismo boasts red stitching on the sport front seats and racing-inspired touchpoints. Occupants will also appreciate the genuine leather seats, steering wheel, and shift knob. When compared to a 2019 Sentra NISMO, the styling of the 2019 Toyota Corolla is relatively minimalist. Choosing an economical compact for your daily driver does not require you to sacrifice performance and style. If you are trying to decide between a 2019 Nissan Sentra and a 2019 Toyota Corolla, the Sentra wins. Finance your new Nissan today.

2019 Nissan Sentra Interior

Cargo Volume

As we've discovered, the 2019 Sentra excels in design, performance, and price. Another area where the Sentra bests the competition is in cargo volume. The 2019 Toyota Corolla boasts a respectable 13 cubic feet of trunk space. A number that would be more impressive if the new Sentra didn't offer 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space. Unfortunately for Toyota, it does. The next time you're packing up for a weekend escape or coming home from the grocery store, Sentra drivers are going to be happy with the choice they made.
