Performance Capabilities

When it comes to performance, the 2017 Honda Civic clearly has the edge over the Corolla. The Civic’s base engine is a 2.0L inline-four that generates 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for more power than that, you make the move up to a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine that pushes out a confident 174 hp and up to 167 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Toyota Corolla is only available with one engine option, a 1.8L inline-four. In most cases, the Corolla’s engine makes just 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, though there is an LE ECO model that makes 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque, which still pales in comparison to the Civic’s performance.

Max Fuel Economy

As you can already see, the Honda Civic is, without question, the more confident performer in the group. What might surprise you is that it’s also offered with better max fuel economy. In fact, on the turbocharged 1.5L inline-four engine, the Civic gets an EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway and 31 mpg city*. Max fuel economy on the Corolla tops out on the LE ECO trim level at 40 mpg highway and 30 mpg city.

Passenger Space

Both of these models are compact sedans that can seat up to five passengers at a time, but when you want more room for everyone to stretch out, you’ll want to go with the new Honda Civic. That’s because the total interior volume of the Civic is measured at 112.9 cubic feet, which is noticeably larger than the Corolla’s interior volume of 110.5 cubic feet.
