Power and Efficiency
Most Corolla models feature a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that generates 132 horsepower while delivering 6.5 L/100 km on the highway and 8.3 L/100 km in the city with an automatic transmission. The Civic, on the other hand, features a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine generating 158 horsepower that delivers 5.8 L/100 km on the highway and 7.8 L/100 km in the city. This is a rare case, with the Honda Civic offering a combination of greater power and better fuel economy.
Both are Equipped with Many Safety Features
Both Honda and Toyota strive to make their sedans as safe as possible for every passenger. The Corolla features many of Toyota's standard safety systems such as eight airbags and the Toyota STAR® Safety System, in addition to the Toyota Safety Sense P, which adds additional safety systems such as Lane Departure Alert and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. The Civic offers many similar safety features, with one notable difference being the HondaLink® Assist Automatic Emergency Response System. This will automatically put you on a call with an operator who will contact first responders on your behalf in the case airbags are deployed in the event you need assistance.
Sporty or Elegant
Toyota updated the Corolla back in 2012 to make it more edgy than previous generations, including a distinctive front end and side accent lines, along with superior LED headlamps. The Civic is generally known as a sportier car, although its size has been increased a little by widening and lowering the body. Flared wheels and bracket-shaped tail lamps add a nice finishing touch to the Civic. As expected, the Civic does indeed offer more of a sporty, edgy feel. The Corolla instead focuses its efforts on those looking for something a bit more sophisticated and stylish.
Loaded with Technology
The Corolla and the Civic feature many similar technology features. They both include a centre touchscreen and audio system with voice recognition featuring Bluetooth® capability. They also include rear-view cameras and navigation systems. If you have a smartphone that is capable of charging wirelessly the Civic features a pad to charge with, freeing you from the hassle of wires and plugs while driving.
