The Toyota Corolla Vs. The Honda Civic


A post shared by toyotausa (@toyotausa) on

For decades, the Toyota Corolla has stood as an ideal car for daily commuters, novice drivers and even performance enthusiasts, with models like the famous AE-86 Corolla Levin lining the Corolla's rich legacy as a tried-and-true model suited to an array of driving styles. However, for numerous shoppers throughout the Yonkers and Mamaroneck areas, the Honda Civic consistently stands as a viable contender. Both the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla offer three different model layouts, with the Corolla offering hatchback, hybrid and sedan models, and the Civic offering hatchback, sedan and coupe configurations. Continue reading to see how the Corolla stacks up against the Honda Civic!


The Honda Civic's standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine provides 158 horsepower, 138 pound-feet of torque and a combined 29 miles per gallon when equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, while a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine offers up to a combined 36 miles per gallon while exerting a formidable 174 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque. While the Corolla's 1.8-liter engine exerts 139 horsepower and 126 pound-feet of torque, its combined 32 miles per gallon and more agile handling dynamics make it better suited to a daily commuter's needs. Additionally, the Corolla's available hybrid powertrain provides an unsurpassed 52 combined miles per gallon, while the available 2.0-liter Dynamic Force engine exerts a formidable 169 horsepower and 152 pound-feet of torque for drivers searching for more enthusiastic performance.


Both the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla offer admirable safety specifications. While the Toyota Corolla's Star Safety System™ and ToyotaCare program offer confidence throughout your travels, the five-star NHTSA safety rating further ensures drivers' complete peace of mind when driving a new Toyota Corolla. The Honda Civic, while equipped with the Honda Sensing® system, offers comparable safety but lacks the ToyotaCare program offered standard. The Toyota Corolla offers seven trim levels to choose from - including various interior additions like a moonroof, SofTex® upholstery material and more, while the more limited five-trim lineup of the Honda Civic leaves drivers wanting more.
