Default 2013 Toyota Corolla vs. Honda Civic?

Personal Pros / Cons































Toyota Corolla LE - $18,180















Pros: Dashboard and Exterior (I'm the few that actually think the Corolla looks nicer than the Civic)















Cons: Less MPG































Honda Civic LX - $18,965















Pros: Better MPG















Cons: Exterior is ugly and the car is big (I mean, the whole point of buying a Corolla or Civic is because I want a car that is small...easy parking!)































I have also heard the Corolla is a smoother ride than the Civic. Any opinions on drivability?































Also, which has a lower cost of maintenance and has less problems?















Aesthetics is not the most important thing for me; the only reason I'm hesitating in buying the Civic is because of its big size.































Also, Civics and Corollas are equally common where I live. (:

Take a look at the 2013 ford fusion I know this isn't an answer to your question but it is much better than both of those. Good luck and I hope you like your new car.

Just test drive both... No one here is you or knows what you like. Test drive them both... It's free to do so.

The Corolla and the Civic are both in the same class. How can you say you don't like the Civic because of its size when the Corolla is the same size?

Neither is good, I would recommend Subaru Impreza, Ford Focus, Mazda3, Chevy Cruze or Hyundai Elantra.































Don't get the Corolla because your basically getting a glorified 2000 Corolla. What I meanis that Toyota hasn't done anything to change engine, transmission, suspension since 2000 era. They have been using the same components for many years just for corolla.































The Honda Civic is a good choice but I don't like its interior. The older 2007-2012 looked a lot better than the new ones but Honda's are very reliable and so are Toyotas.































You could look into the Nissan Sentra but they are dull to drive; they are huge from inside but small from outside. Chevy Cruze fits in the same description.































Instead of The Corolla, I think you should look into the Hyundai Elantra, that is a much better car.































Instead of Honda consider the Subaru Impreza, its fuel efficient, fun to drive and the best looking small car in the market.















































Why not the new Ford Focus or Mazda3?































Mazda3 is pretty solid and fun to drive, the new SkyActive ones are extremely fuel efficient.































I drove the Focus couple days ago and for a small car, it handles very well. The build quality in my opinion is much superior than almost all small size cars, its fuel efficient, great interior and its American.

I just came from a 2006 Toyota Corolla. The car had 85000 miles when the transmission went. I went and drove a new Corolla and Civic. The interior of the 2013 Civic is MUCH nicer and has more of a premium feel. The steering is a little tighter and the suspension feels like I'm driving an Accord. The new Corolla felt like my 2006 did as far as the steering and it was noticeably more noisy. The Civic also feels faster but I'm not sure which car is actually faster. The exterior of the Civic is nicer and has a more modern look, although that's just my opinion. Most of the time is spent on the inside though which the Civic excels in. The MPG is about the same with normal driving habits so that shouldn't be a big factor. The Civic is actually smaller than the Corolla but drives like a mid size car due to the suspension and steering. The Corolla feels tinny and cheap compared to the Civic. I would go with the Civic. Both should end up being reliable though.
