No matter which of these sedans you choose, you’ll be able to get to where you need to go, no problem. However, the Honda Civic has considerably more power on its base trim. You start out with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that offers 158 horsepower in the Civic. Meanwhile, the Corolla’s 1.8L 4-cylinder can only muster 132 horsepower.
You can upgrade the Toyota Corolla to 140 horsepower with its valvematic engine, but that still doesn’t match the Civic’s base trim. Meanwhile, you can upgrade the Civic’s engine to feature an incredible 205 horsepower with its turbo add-on. In terms of raw power, the Corolla doesn’t even come close.
One of the best things about the 2018 Corolla is its fuel economy. By leaving out the extensive horsepower that other sedans feature, it was able to maximize its efficiency in a way few other sedans can compete with. Unfortunately for the Corolla, the 2018 Civic is the exception. Comparing the most efficient of each, the Civic is superior with its EPA-estimated 31 city/40 highway MPG,* compared to the Corolla’s EPA-estimated 28 city/36 highway MPG.
Whether you plan to use your sedan as a family car or personal cruiser, safety should be your main priority. Both Honda and Toyota have a reputation for safety, so you can have peace of mind, no matter which sedan. They both feature extensive driver-assistance systems, but the Civic still has an advantage.
During crash tests, the Civic earned a perfect five stars in every single category. The Corolla, on the other hand, only earned four stars for its rollover rating.
