If you’re looking for a new compact car that’s both affordable and dependable, the 2017 Honda Civic and 2017 Toyota Corolla are likely on your short list. While these cars feature similar profiles, the Civic ultimately beats out the Corolla in a few critical areas. Find out more before taking the new Honda Civic for a test drive at Palladino Honda.

Performance Specs and Fuel Economy

The first three trim levels in the new Honda Civic lineup come standard with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that produces a confident output of 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque while getting up to an impressive 8.5L/100km highway and 6.0L/100km city*. At the EX-T trim level, the Civic then introduces a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine under the hood, which bumps output up to as much as 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The standard engine on every 2017 Toyota Corolla model is a 1.8L four-cylinder, which produces 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, but there’s also a specially tuned LE Eco model that produces 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque; still, both fall short of the power of the base Civic engine. And while the LE Eco trim is the most fuel-efficient version of the Corolla, it still comes in under the Civic by only reaching 7.8L/100km highway and 5.9L/100km city.

Passenger and Cargo Space

Both of these models are compact sedans with seating for up to five passengers, but the 2017 Honda Civic provides noticeably more room for people and cargo alike. The total interior volume of the Civic is 3.19 cubic meters, and there’s a total of 0.43 cubic meters of space in the trunk. The interior volume of the 2017 Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, is only 3.13 cubic meters, and there’s a noticeably smaller cargo volume of just 0.37 cubic meters.
