Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Toyota Corolla. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla, the Honda Civic may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic as you will with the Toyota Corolla, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Corolla. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda Civic will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Corolla.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is a little wider than the Toyota Corolla, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Corolla.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Corolla.

Handling
The Honda Civic has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Corolla, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic is somewhat more powerful than the Toyota Corolla.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla. The Honda Civic has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Corolla.

Warranty
The Honda Civic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Corolla.
