It’s increasingly common for drivers seeking a compact sedan to compare the 2021 Honda Civic vs. 2021 Toyota Corolla, so we’ve put together a quick overview to help them make the right decision. You’ll need to consider everything from engine specs to interior dimensions, so read on to compare:

Most compact sedans don’t offer particularly impressive performance, but the Honda Civic marches to the beat of its drum with the following potent engines:

  • 1.5L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The Toyota Corolla follows convention by offering two engines which deliver markedly less power than the sporty Civic, including:

  • 2.0L 4-Cylinder: Makes up to 169 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque.

Those features aren’t available with the Toyota Corolla at any price.
