A rivalry that seems as old as time itself, the Honda Civic Sedan and Toyota Corolla have made incredible competitors for one another since the former was introduced. The Honda Civic Sedan officially hit the market in 1972, which was six years after the Toyota Corolla. Despite the Corolla having that extra time on the market, they have settled into their rivalry quite well through the decades, even following one another up into a new segment – as both were originally subcompact sedans. We wanted to highlight just how comparable these two sedans are to one another in the modern era, while highlighting the advantages of each one. So check out the 2021 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2021 Toyota Corolla below!
For the purposes of this comparison, we analyzed the popular LX trim for the Civic Sedan and LE trim for the Toyota Corolla. As you can see from a simple glance at the table above, these two sedans are incredibly similar to one another, but let’s take a closer look. In the first row we highlighted each sedan’s power, with the Civic Sedan achieving an extra 19 horsepower more than the Corolla. While that’s not a game-changing advantage, it certainly gives the Honda Civic a leg up.
In the second row we see that both sedans achieve the same combined fuel economy ratings, despite the Civic Sedan’s increased power. The third row highlights another big win for the Civic Sedan, as its trunk offers a full 2.0 cubic feet of extra space. That might not seem like much, but when you’re trying to pack groceries or luggage into your trunk, you’ll definitely be thankful for the extra room.
While these two sedans are incredibly similar to one another on the stats sheet, the 2021 Honda Civic Sedan LX certainly has a couple of advantage over the 2021 Toyota Corolla LE.
