Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Honda Civic Si than in the Toyota Camry Hybrid, due to the Honda Civic Si's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic Si and the Toyota Camry Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Civic Si, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic Si will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Camry 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 Honda Civic Si and the Toyota Camry Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.
