Searching for a small car? Between the 2018 Honda Civic and the 2018 Toyota Corolla, you’ll find that the Civic:
- Achieves superior fuel economy returns on the highway
- Produces 26 more hp and 10 more lb-ft of torque via its introductory engine
- Offers 2.1 more cubic feet for storage in the trunk
- Promises more space for passengers, including 1 more inch of headroom in front, 3.4 more inches of hip room in back, and 2.2 more inches of shoulder room in front
- Comes in three distinct body styles: sedan, coupe, and hatchback
Both of the 2018 Honda Civic’s engine perform better than the powertrain under the hood of the 2018 Toyota Corolla.
- Civic: The 2.0L inline-4 CVT engine produces 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque while also reaching an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway* right off the bat. The Civic’s secondary engine is a turbocharged 1.5L inline-4, which delivers 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.
- Corolla: The Corolla is powered by a 1.8L inline-4, yet its bigger size doesn’t help in terms of output, as it manages only 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. An eco version of this engine boosts output slightly to 140, and you’ll only hit an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway if you pay more for this model.
