Basically, I am more of a Honda/Acura fan. However, I always admire Toyota/Lexus for building some of the most durable automobiles in the world. Since the beginning of this year, the auto market has not been as hot as last year. Many brands have suffered from sales Waterloo. On the contrary, most Japanese brands have recorded sales growth, especially the two Japanese powerhouses of Toyota and Honda. When it comes to the masterpieces of the two family cars, it is naturally Corolla and Civic. Corolla is the world’s best-selling sedan model, and Civic is the representative of the “god car”, which is the choice of many consumers. I will pitch 2019 corolla vs civic honda in this post and i will want you to be the judge.
Today, we will come to a multi-dimensional horizontal comparison to see which car is more worthy of choice.
2019 corolla vs civic – Exterior Design
The overall contour of the Corolla after the new generation has not changed much. The design of fullness and strength has continued from the previous generation. But in terms of detail design, the new generation of Corolla is indeed younger and more sporty.
It packs a largemouth design under the front face to make it look more eye-catching, and the front face has a variety of angular lines to join. This gives the feeling of “moderate”.
Although the Civic has seen a lot of generational redesigns, for several years, this year, the Civic has maintained its popularity through the change of the model.
The flat front face has the taste of a sports car. The large chrome trim in the middle is darkened and more in line with the aesthetics of today’s young people. On the rear side, the taillights in the brackets and the exhaust in the middle make it highly recognizable. See the image below for clarity.
2019 corolla vs civic: Size Comparison
In terms of size, the actual size is not much different from the look and feel. The Civic is flatter and longer, and the Corolla is higher.
However, the size of the two cars is basically at the same level. In terms of space, Corolla has not changed much after the replacement. It has remained at the level of the previous generation, but it is still enough. As for the Civic, it is the tradition of inheriting Honda’s consistently spacious space. The rear row is moderately worthy of recognition.
If you consider the lowest matching entry models, you will find out that the entry version of the Civic has no advantage. First off, the power performance of the 1.2T and 1.0T engines respectively are not too satisfactory. As far as configuration is concerned, the situation is one-sided.
On the other hand, we can see that Corolla’s standard configuration is rich enough, and features like the adaptive cruise, active safety system, knee airbag, etc. are all bright. If you have a low budget and are not very motivated, the entry-level Corolla is a good choice.
2019 Corolla vs Civic: Engine Performance
Next, let’s look at the two models in the car. Corolla is the entry version of the dual engine, and the Civic is the lowest model of the 1.5T+CVT version. In terms of power, both models use a stronger power system, but the acceleration performance is that the Civic is more dominant.
On the other hand, the Corolla dual-engine version has better performance in terms of ride and fuel consumption. As for the configuration, this dual-engine version of the Corolla and the fuel version of the entry model is no different, the configuration is basically at the same level, but the Civic has upgraded a lot. Therefore, the Civic under this price is more recommended.
2019 Corolla vs Civic: Final Thought
In all honesty, when comparing their respective top models. It is worth mentioning that the top civic is worth $101,000 more than the top Corolla. Everyone needs to be considered when comparing. In terms of power, it is still a comparison of hybrid and 1.5T, and low fuel consumption contrasts with strong power. In terms of configuration, the two models are basically at the same level, and the total configuration is already rich enough to basically reach the level of the medium-sized car in the middle.
Although the two cars are very good Japanese-style compact cars, we found that the orientation of the two cars is quite different.
Corolla is more youthful, but the overall orientation is still practical. The configuration is quite rich.
By contrast, the Civic has an exaggerated shape and excellent dynamic performance. Consequently, it is believed to attract more young consumers with individuality. As for the comparison between the versions, the low-cost Corolla and the mid-range Civic are relatively cost-effective. As for the top match, you can choose based on your needs.
