Japanese cars have a reputation for reliability and affordability. With both Honda and Toyota ranking high in popularity, it can be difficult to decide between the two.
In this post, we’ll examine the differences between the 2018 Honda Civic and the 2018 Toyota Corolla. Armed with this information, you can make the decision on which car is best for your needs.
Which Car Has the Best Price?
Price is a major determining factor for many people when it comes to choosing between two vehicles. In terms of numbers, the 2018 Toyota Corolla wins – but only by $340. The base-level Corolla L began at $18,600 MSRP during its launch year. The contrast, the Honda Civic sedan started at $18,940. Given depreciation since the initial launch, these vehicles do not have a significant price difference in the used car market. So, price shouldn’t be a big factor when choosing between the 2018 Corolla and Civic.
Seat Comfort, Cargo Space, Interior Quality and Features
Depending on how many people regularly ride in your vehicle, seat comfort can be an important part of choosing a car. The Corolla wins in this category, providing plenty of room for adults in both rows. The Civic is spacious in the front seats, but the back row is low on headroom for tall passengers and may feel more cramped.
For packing and transporting items, cargo space is a must. The Civic wins here, with 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space. The Corolla offers 13 cubic feet, by contrast. These measurements are both for the sedans, as coupes offer less cargo space.
When it comes to interior quality, the Civic triumphs. While it contains hard plastic, it is visually appealing and offers more premium elements and materials than its counterpart. The Corolla features a modern cabin design, but it contains more hard plastic than its competitors.
The 2018 Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla tied in the category of interior features. While the Corolla includes more standard features, the Civic has a longer list of desirable available features. Both include connectivity and multimedia features along with safety features and touchscreens.
