We can almost guarantee you aren’t the only driver comparing the 2021 Honda Civic vs. 2021 Toyota Corolla right now. These are two of the most popular models in the compact sedan segment, and drivers have been comparing the Civic against the Corolla for decades in a bid to discover which one offers just that little bit more. Here at Victory Honda of Morgan Hill, we feel totally confident placing our faith in the Civic, even against such a strong model as the Corolla.

To find out why, simply read on to see where they stand on:

  • Horsepower and Torque
  • Interior Dimensions
  • Standard and Available Features

Civic vs. Corolla: Horsepower and Torque

Engine options for the Honda Civic include:

  • Standard 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available 1.5L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: Available up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

Engine options for the Toyota Corolla include:

  • Standard 1.8L 4-Cylinder: Makes up to 139 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available 2.0L 4-Cylinder: Makes up to 169 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque.

Whether you want to look at standard engines or available engines, the Honda Civic offers a touch more power to ensure more responsive performance at any speed.

Civic vs. Corolla: Dimensions

The Civic and Corolla are both classed as compact sedans, but only the Corolla feels compact when you look inside. Here’s how interior dimensions compare:

  • Passenger Space: Up to 97.8 cubic feet in the Civic vs. 88.6 in the Corolla.
  • Trunk Space: Up to 15.1 cubic feet in the Civic vs. 13.1 in the Corolla.

Whether you’re taking the whole family or throwing in luggage, the Honda’s spacious dimensions will be appreciated far more than the Corolla’s relatively pokey cabin.

Civic vs. Corolla: Features

The Corolla isn’t exactly short on features, but it never comes up to standards set by the Honda Civic. Just a few amenities available with the Honda but not with the Toyota include:

  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
  • Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC)
  • 10-Speaker Premium Sound System
  • Heated Outboard Rear Seats
  • Leather Upholstery
