Honda vs Toyota: Performance Specs

In terms of performance, the Honda Civic offers far more impressive numbers than the Toyota Corolla. The base engine of the Civic is a 2.0-liter four cylinder which delivers 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque.

The Corolla, on the other hand, comes standard with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that gives you only 132 horsepower and a mere 128 pound-feet of torque. In fact, even the Corolla’s top-level engine gives you only 140 horses and 126 pound-feet, a lower rating than the Civic’s base engine.

Let’s move on to the available features and technology you get at various trim levels of the two models. The 2018 Civic gives you a shopping list of outstanding features that just aren’t available in the Corolla. For example, the Civic gives you the option for leather upholstery, keyless entry, moonroof, and power driver’s seat, as well as alloy wheels. None of these are available in the new Corolla.

The Honda Civic gives you a choice of six-speed manual or CVT, LED daytime running lights, automatic climate control, 5-inch central display, rearview camera, and four-speaker sound with Bluetooth and USB interface.

The Honda Sensing safety package is also available, offering an outstanding safety suite of active features. The Toyota Corolla’s base features include LED daytime running lights, a slightly better infotainment system, and a few standard safety features, including rearview camera and frontal crash warning and mitigation with lane departure.

However, they do not work together in the same way as the Honda Safety Sensing package does, to provide a true extra brain behind the wheel.
