It’s always tough to put a lot of hard work researching, valuing and calculating what your next vehicle will be. When you finally whittle it down to two different vehicles and you end up torn between two, it can get very frustrating. Two very popular vehicles are the 2016 Honda Civic and 2016 Toyota Corolla. They both make perfect sense for your vehicle needs and lifestyle but you can’t seem to pick a side of the fence. That’s why this comparison guide should guide you to the right choice.


Under the hood the 2016 Honda Civic has a 2.0 liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that gets 158 horsepower, torque of 128 at 4,200RPM, 8.8 liter/100Km city, 5.9 liter/100 km highway and a turning circle of 5.4 meters. On the flip side, the 2016 Toyota Corolla has a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine that gets 132 horsepower, torque of 128 at 4,400RPM, 13 liter/100Km city, 8.5 liter/100 km highway, and a turning circle of 5.8 meters. Right off the bat we know that both of these engines aren’t very big or powerful. They are definitely more tailored for saving money through extremely good gas mileage and reliability. The Honda has a bigger and more powerful engine than the Toyota and the turning circle slightly favors the Toyota, however 5.4 meters is still great. We all know a situation we’ve been in where we could use a tight turn radius.

The new 2016 Civic is much nicer than past models. It received a very attractive design upgrade, a higher-performance turbo engine for the high end models, a more comfortable cabin and an expanded Honda Sensing safety technology. The 2016 Corolla was updated with minor tweaks here and there, but lacks the active safety features, automatic climate control and keyless entry. At its bare minimum, the Civic comes with much more premium features than the Corolla. It’s quite obvious after some research that the Civic is your best bet for a compact car, especially in comparison to the Corolla.
