Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord Hybrid than the Toyota Corolla, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Accord Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Corolla, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Based on MSRP, the Toyota Corolla is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda Accord Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Corolla will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Corolla is much slimmer than the Honda Accord Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota Corolla, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Accord Hybrid do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Toyota Corolla has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Accord Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Accord Hybrid. The Toyota Corolla has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Accord Hybrid, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
