Compact cars are relatively small in stature, but usually big on value and fun. For example, you might be sacrificing some horsepower you would get in a larger vehicle but you'll gain in fuel economy, saving you money long-term. We have two popular cars that definitely meet these requirements. We're going to take a look at the 2016 Nissan Sentra vs. the Toyota Corolla to see which brings home the title as ruler of the compacts.

The 2016 Nissan Sentra and the 2016 Toyota Corolla both start out with a hearty 27 mpg city, 36 mpg highway in base models and peak at a phenomenal 30 mpg city, 40 mpg highway in certain models. But look closer and see the 2016 Sentra's most fuel-efficient model, the FE + S model trim, is significantly more affordable than the Corolla's most fuel-efficient LE Eco trim, typically by more than a couple thousand dollars. Base models of the Sentra also are typically more affordable than base models of the Corolla, so you'll save driving off the lot and once you begin taking road trips, as well. And once you begin that road trip in your 2016 Nissan Sentra, you'll want to pin your ears back (or keep them un-pinned; it's up to you) for the sound quality you'll get from the Sentra's available eight-speaker Bose Premium Audio System.

The Sentra Shows its Supremacy

The 2016 Nissan Sentra is also a safer car than the 2016 Toyota Corolla, as it was named a 2016 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). After being put through a battery of tests, the Sentra was shown to be more impact-resistant, keeping you and your friends and family safer in emergencies. And while you're on the road with those you care about, you'll enjoy a 16-percent edge in cargo room for your bags and equipment in the 2016 Nissan Sentra, with 15.1 cubic feet compared to the 2016 Corolla's 13.
