Honda Civic vs. Toyota Corolla

The Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla continue to dominate the small car market thanks to a reputation for quality and reliability. The Civic is considered the enthusiasts’ choice (the Type R, with its 6-speed manual gearbox and 300-plus horsepower, is especially engaging to drive), whereas rock-solid reliability is the Corolla’s calling card. The upcoming Corolla GR should provide a counter to the Civic Type R. Both the Civic and the Corolla are available in sedan and hatchback body styles, and both offer 4-cylinder power. Unlike the Civic, the Corolla is available with a hybrid powertrain that delivers 52 mpg in combined driving and is much more fuel-efficient. The Corolla Hybrid does cost more than the base-model Civic, but the gas-powered Corolla undercuts the Civic on price by about $1,800. The Civic is slightly larger than the Corolla and offers more interior space and a larger trunk. Outward visibility is excellent for both cars, but the Corolla is a bit easier to get into and out as it sits higher than the Civic.
