Fuel Efficiency

Fuel efficiency is very important, so you want to be sure you’re choosing a vehicle that will allow you to experience more of the road than the gas pump. When you opt for the Sentra, you’ll get an impressive 30 city and 40 highway mpg. Add in that it also gets a 34 combined mpg, and you’ll know that this vehicle is definitely one that allows you to drive farther on less gas.

The Corolla offers an impressive amount of fuel efficiency for most cars on the road today, but it doesn’t match what the Sentra offers. The Corolla gets 28 city and 37 highway mpg, which is less than the Sentra. Plus, it only offers a combined EPA-estimated 32 mpg, so no matter where the road takes you, the Sentra will get you there without stopping.

Cargo Space

Having enough space for all your gear is important. After all, you don’t want to take two cars on vacation just as much as you don’t want to limit what you can buy while out on a shopping spree. Thankfully, with the Sentra you won’t have to. This vehicle offers an impressive amount of cargo space that every Puyallup and Bonney Lake driver will enjoy. When you fold the rear seats down flat, you expose up to 111 cubic feet of cargo space. This means you can pack in your luggage, grocery bags, or whatever else you have and take it with you easily.

The Corolla is also impressive with its cargo space, but it still doesn’t match the Sentra. In fact, you’ll only get about 110 cubic feet of cargo space, which means that something you have won’t be able to make the trip.

Fun Extras

  • The dual zone auto temperature control allows you to have more control over your comfort by giving driver and front passenger the ability to determine exactly how cool or warm they want the ride to be.

  • The Bose audio system with 8 speakers ensures that everyone in the vehicle has the right amount of entertainment while on the road, no matter how short or long the drive may be.

  • The easy fill tire alert system automatically stops the air pump when the tire has reached its desired pressure, which helps to minimize damage due to over-inflation.
