Both the 2019 Corolla and 2019 Sentra bring some of the most innovative and savvy tech features to the fold, including dual-zone temperature control, premium audio systems, and Rearview Monitors to help you keep what’s behind you in your line of sight when backing out of those tight spaces. This means that any comparison between Toyota and Nissan’s flagship compact sedans is a matter of preference, but there are still definite ways in which the Corolla holds a significant upper hand over the competition.
