The Legendary Civic vs Corolla, which one of these is your pick? And yes, we know the Corolla has a real 1st gear and the rest is CVT

So basically the 4 year old Civic is aging well against the all new Corolla.

I believe the Civic has a feature called "walk away" where it'll auto lock when you walk away

Cannot believe that 4 years later you guys still don’t know that the civic as proximity lock as well. Is not enabled by default but it’s there.

Actually you don’t have to press a button to lock civic there is a setting in infotainment to make it so it auto locks when you close door after like 5 seconds

I've test-driven both, the Honda definitely handles better. The Toyota still handles well, but not quite as flickable. That's enough for me to choose the Honda, but it's a close call.

I'll take the corolla because it doesnt have a turbo. One less maintenance item for point a to b driving 🤷‍♂️

How are they selling these cars like $6,000+ cheaper in Canada once you convert for currency than they are in the US? They have to either be selling these for a loss in Canada or they're screwing US buyers.

Great review! Finally a review of cars most people can afford instead of some $100k+ SUV or sports car. Personally though, I’d take a Mazda3 over either the Corolla or Civic 🙂

*Personal Opinion!:* Somehow I just like the Civic's look more, it's just somewhat more old school compared to the super-thin lights and giant grills on the Corolla. Civic's tail light is a bit too agressive for me, but I like the side-look for the Civic much more than the Corolla. Also, I initially liked the Corolla's interior design more, but that piano black really ruins it for me, and the —althrough fake— wood in the Civic looks more refreshing to me. I'm not a big fan of the Corolla's seat design, those stripes looks a little too flashy to me, and if I were to buy a Civic, I'll put a slightly bigger spoiler, but not too big that it becomes a Type R. I'm also an enthusiast, so it's just natural for me to choose the handling and power of the Civic, which is a little bit better than the Corolla. Now, I think the Corolla still has some striking design, it really looks good, but it's just not my cup of tea. And honestly, I like the civic's look more because of the side-look of it. They both are amazing cars, they have been the legendary duo of north-american grocery getter car, and they're good enough for most people, and if you aren't much of a car enthusiast, you might like the Corolla more, and the software in the Corolla IMO, if slightly better than the Civic's infotainment software. They're both just as good as each other, but I think they're basically at the same level, it's your preference that really matters now. For me, I'll go with the Civic, but for many people out there, the Corolla is just as good if not better to suit their preference.

I've owned both cars. Both were manual, both were painfully slow, and incredibly boring. My first Corolla was 17 years old when I junked it, the brake lines were shot & wasn't worth fixing, though I wish I had. That car never failed me once in the 17 Chicago winters it endured. My Civic after that was GARBAGE. The car quite literally fell apart, endless recalls and replacements, the oil pan and hybrid batteries weren't cheap. Granted it was a first generation Hybrid Civic Honda knew was packed with flaws, it should have never been called a Honda Civic. I'll never buy another Honda product. I look forward to owning my 2015 Corolla for many, many, reliable years. Toyota forever.

I always love the way Honda looks everyone in our families call Toyota looks an old man’s car look. I feel the driving of Honda are more precise while the Toyota always feel more floating feeling. Honda wins on sound quality on basic trim, even my original Honda Fit sound 100x better than my aunt’s Matrix Matrix sounded like our old old 1992 Integra GSR. Yuk

Antonin E. Rodrigue 3 month ago
I remember when cars were relying on engine power/efficiency, suspension system and ride quality instead of the infotainment and cameras everywhere. If you can't drive without your blindspot monitoring and parking sensor then you shouldn't be driving on the roads at all. But that's just my opinion...
