2018 Honda Civic vs. 2018 Toyota Corolla

If you're looking for a car that packs all the features and power you need for an enriching daily drive into a small package, the 2018 Honda Civic is an impressive compact car that will make the perfect addition to your driveway. With a high-quality cabin, excellent handling, plenty of cargo space, and much more, the Honda Civic is stylish, well-rounded, and fun to drive, making it an excellent car for commutes or jaunts around town.

But what happens when rivals like the 2018 Toyota Corolla come knocking? We compared the two and found the Honda Civic to be the best option.


Both cars can seat up to five, but Honda Civic passengers will appreciate the spacious seats and extra hip and shoulder room in both the front and back. Front seat passengers can also enjoy an inch more headroom than in the Toyota Corolla. Even the Honda Civic sedan's trunk offers more space, beating the Corolla by about two cubic feet. The Honda Civic also features higher-quality interior materials where the Corolla offers an overabundance of hard plastic in many areas.


If you like being able to pick out a body style that works for your needs without having to explore an entirely different vehicle, the Honda Civic leaves much more room to explore. The Honda Civic is available as a sedan, coupe, or hatchback, allowing you to enjoy Honda Civic features the way you want. The Corolla is stuck as a sedan.

On the Road

While both cars are available with either a manual or automatic transmission, Corolla drivers will have to leap to the second-highest trim just to have the option for manual. A six-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission are available to Honda Civic drivers from the beginning. If you're looking for power, the Honda Civic offers an array of potent engines designed to provide a fun, sporty drive. The Corolla, however, only offers one engine: an uninspiring, underpowered 1.8L four-cylinder engine that hasn't changed in years.
