The 2017 Honda Civic has earned a big following over the years. Often in competition with the Toyota Corolla, Civics stand up to their rivals in a variety of ways. This review will give you an idea of how today's Civic compares to the 2017 Toyota Corolla.

Fuel Economy

If you are buying cars like the Civic or Corolla, you should look for a deal that will continue long after the purchase. The Civic is ready to serve. Its CVT model has higher fuel economy than the comparable Corolla. You can look at the numbers and see for yourself. Corollas earn 28 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. Honda Civics can earn up to 28 city and 40 highway*.

Variety and Versatility

The Corolla sedan is in the same line-up with a similarly named model, the Corolla iM hatchback, but it is actually a renamed Scion model. Civics, on the other hand, come in three styles, but these include an equal level of quality and features. There’s the fun two-door coupe. A swinging single’s car, this one appeals to everyone from first-time car buyers to empty nesters. For 2017, Honda introduced a hatchback model for the first time in years. This genuine Civic's major difference, other than body type, is the big cargo hold. It measures 25.7 cu.ft. Furthermore, if you compare the Honda’s 16.1-cu.ft. trunk to the Corolla’s 13.0-cu.ft. trunk, it’s easy to see whether a Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla is better for your big trips. The typical Civic also offers slightly more passenger space (97.8 cu.ft.) than the Corolla (97.5 cu.ft.). In a modestly sized car, we think every little bit counts for a lot.


The Corolla engine generates only 132 horsepower, matching more with the subcompact Honda Fit than the Honda Civic. Corollas also have an LE Eco edition, but its 140 horsepower still can’t match the Honda. If you look at the former Scion model, the Corolla iM, its engine generates only 137 horsepower. The basic Civic engines produce 158 horsepower. This engine also generates more torque than any of the Corollas. Making the Civic’s horsepower even more meaningful, the Civic sedan weighs about 90 pounds less than the Corolla. Furthermore, Honda is offering even more engine choices, again providing the variety that shoppers appreciate. The Honda Civic Hatchback has a turbo engine that produces 174 horsepower. If you still want more, you can step up to the fun Civic SI which spits out 205 horsepower. Driving enthusiasts will like the SI sedan or coupe, but they may want to consider the Civic R Type hatchback. Its powertrain kicks out 306 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque.
