Advanced Safety

The Corolla and Sentra both cover the safety basics well, coming with a full suite of airbags, traction control, and stability control. However, the 2018 Toyota Corolla blows the 2017 Nissan Sentra out of the water in terms of standard safety thanks to the Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) driver assist package, which comes standard on all 2018 Corollas and includes:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)

  • 2017 Nissan Sentra – The Nissan Sentra also gets a standard 1.8L four-cylinder engine, but it tops out at just 130 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque and is unable to get more than an EPA-estimated 37 mpg highway and 29 mpg city.
