The Toyota Corolla, on the other hand can only muster 28 city/37 highway with its standard 1.8-liter engine and four-speed automatic; 30 city/40 highway with its LE Eco trim’s premium engine and CVT; and 29 city/37 highway in its S trim, which also features the premium engine and CVT gearbox.

Available Engines and Powertrain Options
For many model years, the 2016 Honda Civic has had the same exceptional engine under its hood; this engine is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque. Now, with the advent of its all-new tenth generation, Honda has added another fantastic powertrain to give you even more thrills. In the EX-T, EX-L, and Touring trim grades, the Civic now features a standard 1.5-liter turbocharged (that’s right – TURBO!) four-cylinder engine. This all-new powertrain features a single-scroll MHI TD03 turbocharger and an internal wastegate and offers up a thrilling 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of scorching torque for an extra fun driving experience you won’t soon forget. The Toyota Corolla? Well it has still got its long-time engine, too, a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that can be tuned to produce either 132 or 140 horsepower and either 128 or 126 pound-feet of torque depending on the trim. Well, the numbers don’t lie and the Honda Civic’s standard engine is clearly more powerful. And with the option of the new turbo engine, why are you still even thinking about the Corolla? We aren’t sure, either.
Now you have seen the numbers and they are proof enough to allow us to mark the 2016 Honda Civic the clear winner in this bout. If you still need some convincing, come down to Brandon Honda in Tampa, FL and take the new Civic for a spin. You will be glad you did!
