Default What is faster: A 2002 Honda Civic EX Sedan or a 1998 Toyota Corolla VE Sedan?

The Civic offers; 127 Horsepower@6300 RPM and 114 Torque@4800 RPM. The Corolla offers; 120 Horsepower@5600 RPM and 122 Torque@4400 RPM. Compression ratio in a Civic is 9.9 while in a Corolla it's a 10. The Honda is equiped with a 1.7L V-Tec engine and the Toyota has a 1.8L DOHC engine. Both have a 4 In-Line alloy engine. Toyota runs on a 3 speed automatic and the Honda runs on 4 speed automatic. Who would win a 1/4 mile race?

Most of the specs you provide are meaningless. What is still needed to calculate acceleration is the exact weight of the respective vehicles including driver. Then we could come up with at least an educated guess.

Of course, there would still be many variables including skill of the driver, available traction, etc., but it would be a close race -- albeit a very boring one between two slush-box equipped econoboxes.
