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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla in the front seats.

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). Whether you pick the Honda Civic or the Toyota Corolla, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

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 about the same turning radius as the Toyota Corolla, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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.
