If you're in the market for a small sedan to cruise around in, there's a good chance that the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla have come up in your search. Both are affordable choices, but it's the Civic that really shines in terms of performance and space for passengers and cargo. Honda City Chicago has done the homework for you. Peruse our comparison of the Honda Civic vs. Toyota Corolla below.

Corolla vs. Civic: Power & Performance

The Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla are economy cars, but that doesn't mean you should settle for lackluster power and performance. Unlike the Corolla, which simply takes you from point A to point B, the new Civic adds some zest to every drive:
  • Base Engines: The Civic comes standard with a 158-hp 2.0L engine with CVT, giving it a little extra pep compared to the Corolla's 132-hp 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with 2-speed CVT.
  • Available Engines: You can purchase a Honda Civic with a variety of engines, including a 2.0L turbo inline-4 that generates a cool 306 hp. The Corolla, on the other hand, never rises above 140 hp.

Corolla vs. Civic: Passenger & Cargo Space

Inside the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, you'll find seating for up to five people. However, you and your passengers are likely to feel cramped inside the Corolla, which offers an interior volume of 110.5 cubic feet. The Civic offers 2.4 cubic feet more, which may seem inconsequential, but could make all the difference on a road-trip or vacation drive. The Civic offers a larger trunk, too. You'll find 46.2 cubic feet of cargo space vs. 13.1 cubic feet of cargo room in the Corolla.
