If you’re shopping for a compact car, the Honda Civic and 2023 Toyota Corolla are easily the two most popular options you can consider. But how do these models measure up against each other? In a head-to-head comparison, you’ll find that the Honda Civic holds a strong advantage over its competitor in several key areas.


Fuel efficiency

The Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla are both highly efficient vehicles, but the Civic ultimately claims the edge if you’re looking to save money at the pump. The Civic boasts up to 33 mpg in the city, 42 mpg on the highway, and 36 mpg in combined driving.[1] Gas-powered Corolla models top out at 32 city mpg, 41 highway mpg, and 35 combined mpg.

Power and performance

The Civic is more efficient than the Corolla — and it’s also more nimble and confident out on the road. According to recent comparison testing by Car and Driver, the Civic corners and brakes better than its Toyota rival while offering better front visibility and a more fun-to-drive experience.[2]

Passenger and cargo space

The Civic is a much more spacious vehicle than the Corolla. Second-row passengers get 37.4 inches of legroom in the Civic, compared to a cramped 34.8 inches in the Corolla. The Civic’s 14.8 cubic feet of trunk space is also far superior to the Corolla’s 13.1 cubic feet.

Audio system

If you enjoy listening to music and podcasts on the go, you’ll get a better audio experience in the Civic. The Civic’s standard eight-speaker sound system is better than the Corolla’s six-speaker setup. And if you’re looking to upgrade, the Civic offers a 12-speaker Bose® Premium Sound System while the Corolla’s optional JBL® system only offers nine speakers.
