Which Sedan Will Be Your New Commuting Companion?

Toyota Corolla

When you’re looking for a new commuter car, you want to know your selected model has the efficiency needed to keep you on the road longer.

Roam the Road Longer

You’re sure to cruise right past the gas station with any of the three motor options in the 2022 Toyota Corolla:

  • 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine: EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG1
  • 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine: EPA-estimated 31 city/38 highway MPG1
  • 1.8-liter 4-cylinder hybrid engine: EPA-estimated 53 city/52 highway MPG1

The Nissan Sentra only has one powertrain, but it’s very efficient as well with an EPA-estimated 29 city/39 highway MPG. However, if you’re interested in making the most of your fuel tank with a hybrid motor, the Sentra doesn’t have an option for you.

With such great MPG keeping you on the road and away from the pump longer, it’s important for your vehicle to have a refined and cozy cabin. Cold-weather rides will be much more enjoyable in these sedans—even when the weather hits hard—thanks to available heated front seats.

Cozy Drives

When it comes to year-round comfort, though, you may prefer the 2022 Toyota Corolla. It’s available with an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support to provide an array of seating positions. This allows you to find your ideal comfort level to stay cozy throughout your daily treks.

Finding the most supportive position may be a bit harder in the Nissan Sentra since only a 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is available.

Toyota Corolla

Drivers want to feel safe and secure during their travels, and driver-assistive technologies are designed to give you peace of mind out on the road. When you can relax in the driver’s seat, you can drive confidently.

State-of-the-Art Safety Features

The Toyota Corolla comes standardly equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0. This suite of driver-assistive tech provides comprehensive coverage from unexpected situations. These features come in every Corolla, so you can trust it with the safety of you and your passengers:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Road Sign Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist

The Nissan Sentra also offers driver-assistive technology, but not all the features come standard to match the Corolla. Its Intelligent Cruise Control is only available at higher trim levels, so you might miss out on this convenient system.
