The Sentra doesn't do quite as well, with just 3.4 for quality and 2.6 for reliability.

You'll be happy to know that the Toyota Corolla gets 5 out of 5 stars for side impact, frontal crash and overall ratings. The Nissan Sentra doesn't do badly, but it can only manage to get 4 out of 5 stars on the frontal and overall ratings, though it does get 5 for side impacts.

Corolla Space vs. Sentra Space

Comparing the spec sheets you may notice that Corolla has over 1.5 cubic feet more interior room. Where does Toyota use it? They used it to give rear seat passengers nearly 4” more legroom that Nissan gives Sentra buyers. This makes Corolla's rear seat much more useful for full sized adults.

The Toyota Corolla in all its variations is one of the best selling cars all over the world. See why with a test drive of the 2015 at Plaza Toyota in Brooklyn, serving all of New York.
