    Default Review of Toyota corolla vs honda Civic

    Review of Toyota corolla LE 1.8 with Honda Civic (USA).

    Since there is so much discussion abt Civic and corolla, I found this current elaborative Review abt Corolla and Civic. hope this helps.
    Note: I am not a corolla or honda fan boy, I like both.

    Toyota Corolla LE 2011:
    As associate online editor Benson Kong recently pointed out in his First Drive, the Corolla holds the top sales spot for the compact vehicle segment, handily outselling Honda's Civic by nearly 12,000 units. This would be well and fine, except that Honda has just released an all-new Civic. And while Honda also tends to keep changes to a minimum, we were left wondering if the same basic Corolla -- recently refreshed for the 2011 model year, but still largely as-released in 2008 -- can still play ball today.

    The Corolla isn't much to look at. The focus-group styling and humdrum appointments ensure no one will ever look twice at a curve of its fender or the rake of its roofline. Updates for the new model year consist of subtle refreshes to the front and rear fascias, and lighting. In fact, we'd guess a Toyota Corolla could zigzag through the annual Macy's Day Parade on live television without anyone batting an eye. The ultimate getaway vehicle? Maybe, if it weren't so slow.


    Our Magnetic Grey Metallic 2011 Toyota Corolla LE tester makes do with a 132-hp, 1.8-liter inline-four that produces 128 lb-ft of torque. Couple that engine with Toyota's four-speed automatic gearbox (virtually all of the Corolla's competition now features five or even six speeds) and we achieved a 9.8-second 0-60-mph sprint, with the quarter-mile coming in 17.4 seconds at 80.0 mph flat. So the Corolla's no speed demon, and, yes, we expected that.
    Still, our recent test of the 2012 Honda Civic revealed a 0-60 sprint that's nearly a full second faster - just 8.9 seconds.

    Honda Civic EX 2012 :
    I must admit, when I first saw photos of the ninth-generation 2012 Civic, I was disappointed. I had been hoping for, well, more -- a more radical departure from the eighth gen, a car that, by the way, handily won our 2006 Car of the Year competition. Gen 8 earned the coveted calipers mostly because it was such -- you guessed it -- a radical departure from its predecessor. During 2006 COTY testing, I recall the Civic blowing away all the Motor Trend judges with its sleek, standout sheet metal, futuristic interior, and unbeatable value. In describing why we chose it as our COTY, we wrote: "Honda deserves a standing ovation for not playing it safe again, for crafting a compact car that's edgier and more soulful than it needs to be." For this new 2012 EX sedan, Honda deserves mildly enthusiastic seated applause.

    This is not to say the new EX isn't an excellent compact sedan. It is. In fact, in just about every objective measurement, this 2012 outclasses its COTY-winning predecessor. Further, its improved dynamics and better road manners might very well elevate this EX to the top of its class, a claim we'll be verifying very soon (stay tuned!). Still, there's something missing with Gen 9. Maybe it's the exterior's perceived lack of newness, the interior's familiarity, or the engine's identical peak output. Or all three.

    According to Honda, Gen 9's body was designed to be distinctive, clean, and energetic, but the end product appears too similar to that of Gen 8. The so-called "mono-form body" remains -- Honda wanted the new model to be recognizable as a Civic -- making the new car look more like a refresh than a redesign. Part of the similarity stems from the dimensions, which have stayed the same at 177.3 inches long, 69.0 inches wide, and 56.5 inches tall. Only the wheelbase, at 105.1, differs, shrinking 1.2 inches. All-new design? Yes, but this object in the mirror appears more or less the same.

    I saw Edmunds car review.

    2008 Corolla vs Civic vs Mazda 3

    Civic won the competition where as Mazda came second followed by Corolla.

    Anyways I will not be to be surprised to see Civic winning "Best C Segment" Car of the year award this year aswell!

    Edmunds was the one where they allowed some random individuals to test drive the three cars and comment on them aswell wasnt it?

    I am pretty much impressed with the looks of corolla than Honda civic. But when it comes to performance I think Honda is the best. Its really comfortable and spacious.

    Biggest problems with both is everybody on road is driving them. after a while you get fed up of seeing these cars.

    In world there are so many diffirent cars but in Pk, its either one of these in majority. we keep on switching our eyes of one to other, and get narrow focused

    this VS that.. both need new badges. These words "civic and corolla" are irritating, Pk needs to grow out. get some Peojeouts Citrons VW,holdens, scions, jags,..

    well said,

    hope there is a time when we see these cars here.

    biggest problem is monoply of Pakistani market by some companies and lack of economic growth of the country. we then may be able to see some competetition.

    Never have truer words been spoken. Almost every other thread on here is about the two most boring midsize sedans the world has ever seen. With all due respect, I fail to understand why people call the refreshed, facelifted Pakistani Corolla, the 'New' Corolla.

    The new 1.6L Altis comes with a 6-speed gearbox (in PK) from this month.

    still, it's nice to see a comparison done in a realistic market,.. we must grow out of 0-60 times and start focussing on safety features, specially with the way people drive in PK!

    The new cars available here are overpriced junk. we need at least 4 airbags, side impact bars, ABS, seatbelt pretensioners, etc as standard!!!!
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون
