If you are in search of an affordable new small car like a compact sedan, then you are likely familiar with the Honda Civic. As one of the most popular compact sedans in America for years now, drivers continue to choose the Civic over other compact car options. Fresh off its complete redesign for the previous model year, the Honda Civic returns for 2019 looking as fresh as ever, with sleek styling, high-tech features, and plenty of convenience and comfort amenities.
Comparing the striking, sporty, and sophisticated 2019 Civic to the latest version of its longtime rival -- the 2019 Toyota Corolla -- is surprisingly not that fair of a fight. While Toyota's venerable Corolla has received some recent updates, it still trails the new Honda Civic in design, features, power, and cargo capacity. Let's see where these two popular compact cars differ by comparing the 2019 Honda Civic to the 2019 Toyota Corolla.
Speaking of the powertrain, the 2019 Honda Civic has quite the advantage over the 2019 Toyota Corolla in that regard. The 2019 Civic's standard 2.0-liter inline-four engine offers 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, while the 2019 Corolla's smaller, 1.8-liter inline-four engine which delivers 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. To top it off, the Civic has two engine options. The second 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four engine offers 174 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque. Have more power and confidence in your new compact car by choosing the 2019 Honda Civic over Toyota's Corolla.
Gone are the days when compact car drivers had to sacrifice practicality and convenience. With the 2019 Honda Civic sedan, drivers can access added cargo volume behind the second row of seats. The 2019 Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, offers significantly less cargo room and doesn't have the same features as the Honda Civic. Leave the cramped cargo areas of old compact cars behind by getting into a 2019 Honda Civic!
