    Default Comparison of Civic and Corolla

    Before you say this is one of the same topics JUST THINK AGAIN.. what is your problem? Why do you do this? just coz you've talked about two cars doesn't mean you can ban the topic. for gods sake just get some sense and think of the new users here who dont have the time to go through every topic to find info about civics or corollas.. whats the harm is some one replies to a topic of CIVIC vs Corolla.

    No one will be abusive. I just want to know the pros and cons of Civic oriel 2005 prosmatec and corolla 2005 Se saloon auto..

    I dont see any harm so its my request to not close this topic ye?
    Let us compare corolla n civic as a new start.. There will be no fighting every one is entitled to their own views and thats how its gona be.. no 1 will try to prove what is better to the other.. Just give in you opinions and what you'd prefer and why...

    thanks guys

    Not even in PKDM Civic can out perform Corolla.

    Corolla stands for durability as i always say. Some Honda lover just tell me Why couldn't Civic buiild up DOHC for PKDM?

    And the R18A engine in Civic reborn isn't as good as 1ZZFE (Altis) nor its Vtec is as efficient as VVti. I feel Vtec deployed over SOHC can never give optimum performence so if you wanna feel the Vtec kick get DOHC.

    Corolla Se Saloon was 3ZZFE and Civic 2005 is a D15y* with a VTec technology. Can't be directly comparable but again on the economy sides 3ZZ takes the lead.

    Mein oath leta hun k i will not be abusive hahaha

    Bro i really want some Honda lover to prove that Honda is a great but i dont expect any one to put forward the same old looser riced talks of great road grip on high speed and bullet jaise shape *** Please come up with one proper reason Honda is a worth buy.

    hello brothers....
    Well... as i've seen in many topics...ppl who support corollas always brag abt the durability & engine...etc etc..& ppl supporting honda brag abt the road grip etc etc...
    Well time for some head - head comparision...we r in Pakistan...so lets not talk abt jap assembled & some of u..plsss..dont brag abt american or brit or where ever u've seen these cars...

    Last but not the least...when u'll grow up n reach around 30+ with ur kids on ur back seat...i dont think u'll even THINK abt out-running a corolla or a civic that just passes u at a speed higher then urs... WILL U??so lets forget racing...

    Corolla:
    Pros:
    Durable
    Sufficient ground clearance
    Good resale value
    Easily available spares
    Not technically complicated engineering (Small mechanics can fix ur car)

    Cons:
    lack basic amenities that are available in same price range
    Bulky body
    Uncomfortable ride
    Price too high as compared to the things u get
    Same old shape
    Lacks technical advancement(A/T transmission)

    Honda
    Pros:
    Reliable
    Durable
    eye candy (cosmetic interiors...at least i like them)
    4wheel disc brakes are standard
    Amenities are standard(power windows etc)
    Ride quality (smooth ride)
    Technically advanced (a/t transmission)
    upgraded every 3-4 years


    Cons:
    Expensive spares
    requires Specialized pit mechanics
    need to be carefully kept (sensitive)
    a bit expensive
    u'll bang ur head on the wall hard as soon as u'll know that u've bought the last car produced in 2008 when there is a new model rolling down the assy-line in 2009


    Both cars produced in Pakistan hav pros n cons.. & my friends...both the cars are made for two different market segments...so frankly... THEY CAN'T BE COMPARED LOGICALLY....if u want cheap maintainance & mileage..go for a corolla..if u are least concerned abt money u spend on fuel & maintainance...u'll obviously a civic...so lets be true to ourselves when we decide which one is the best..
    Whenever a bird shits on my car, I eat a plate of scrambled eggs on my front porch just to let them know what I'm capable of...

    Bro i can understand what capricorns feel like as i am 8th Jan born:p

    Acha Acha

    Toyo
    Cons:
    lack basic amenities that are available in same price range
    I strongly agree with you.
    Bulky body
    Prove that its a con and i will prove it one of the pros.
    Uncomfortable ride
    Agree but prove it a con and i will prove it a result of one of the benefit you gain.
    Price too high as compared to the things u get
    This statement of yours is a pro as well a con i will prove it.
    Same old shape
    Its one of the biggest benefit a toyo lover can get. I will prove it later if you say so.
    Lacks technical advancement(A/T transmission)
    Amazing hana? Tell me how? What the ambiguity regarding the Auto tranny?
    Honda
    Pros:
    Reliable
    Fake. I will prove it. Shall I?
    Durable
    Hahaha. You are you think with your mind?
    eye candy (cosmetic interiors...at least i like them)
    Haan Chalo personal perception of yours.
    4wheel disc brakes are standard
    I agree. Yeh aik faida hai par what about Corolla?
    Amenities are standard(power windows etc)
    Sahi baat hai.
    Ride quality (smooth ride)
    No ride quality. Yeh bhi prove kar dun ga.
    Technically advanced (a/t transmission)
    upgraded every 3-4 years
    Both of these factors remain one of the biggest disadvantage. Tranny tu chalo aik taraf se ache hai with CVT but upgraation You know whats going on in Atlas Honda?

    I personally have Merc (C180) and have used both corolla and civic (rebourn) a lot.

    I can tell you I always felt comfortable in Rolla then civic which has numerous issues besides the space problem to begin with.

    Rolla to me seems like most economical thing I have driven (though it does not match 2005 city consumption) but in comperasion with civic reborn I do think advantage goes to rolla for obvious reasons.

    People dont buy expensive car 13 lakh+ just for road grip? I think it is imapropiate to discard the pros of rolla just because of road grip thing...

    Again like I said I dont own both but I have used both.

    There is a lot of difference between using and owning a car. I have owned both the cars simultaneously and still owning them.
    I also had a 1.6 GLi Special Edition 2000 Model(the one with FF Alloy Rims and FF CD Changer and Leather Seats), and at the same time i had a City 2003 EXiS(Old Shape).
    So i can Comment on these cars and u have just used them, so can u cant Comment both?
    I had tested both of them and i know which one is better and reliable.

    " just want to know the pros and cons of Civic oriel 2005 prosmatec and corolla 2005 Se saloon auto.."


    you wanna know then do yr own search,, we dont support these two different makes and models comparision anymore. both had pros and cons and stupid fights between members.

    you can compare civic with accord here or corolla with camry.. yr choice.


    yr topic will enter high alert for mods if you continue.

    Dear all , read this topic too late... anyway.


    How civic is better than corolla? According to me it has good drive controls and road grip due to punch face. But not by engine and durability.


    If we speak about 2003-2008 models of civic / corolla i will say corolla is best! And how, i explain as:


    - Tough suspension also low maintenance
    - Parts
    - Corolla Se Saloon has installed in it 3zz-fe engine which is also vvti 1.6l / aprox 110hp (which can be easily increased by installing good Air-Intake and its Sensor), i feel sure civic can not compete it by timing from 0-160 even.
    - Road grip problem can be overcome by changing wheel rims of 15"with good radial tyres aprox 225x50 profile
    - Cut off complete 1/ring of from shock's srping to incline from front.


    I bet you will feel the difference no matter how fast you take turn or drift.


    This model has no braking problem if tyres and front springs modified which is not a big job to do.


    I have 2004 se saloon and quite satisfied by performance, expenses etc and till i have no plan to dispose it off.


    - Total acceleration 200km/h (i have tested only 190km/h on motorway) surely it could cross to 200 but i didn't do.

    CIVIC i used 2000 model , and 2002 model but its kinda disposible vehicle as compaired to corolla.


    Means one should buy a new car and sell it off right after 5years cuz its not lasting Esp Engine cuz engine heating of civic is high and when then engine requires work in it , once its open it will be really bad pain in *** cuz you will have to visit its doctor every week and so is other parts, suspension, sensors etc
    Means New civic is ok but not more than 5 years otherwise you will become a Mechanic yourself lol ....





    So coparitively corolla has not much tensions like civic .

    2 things i experienced on a friend's Gli (06):....can a civic actually do these.
    the car has been run 124k and literally like a rent a car, na kabhi safayi hoyi hai properly.
    we went all the way to monal 6people in one car on cng at speeds up the hill upto 80kph, ON CNG i repeat.

    then on the same car we went to khanpur dam ac on on the "rural tareen" road.
    we went through the bumpy kachhi road never took the proper one again in quite speed on cng ofcourse.

    my friend never changes a gear unless its at 5-6k rpm.since the last 2years still the car has never stopped on a road, and hardly has it gone for maintenance apart from an oil change.

    most people here on pw who support civics have corollas standing in their porch.
    anyone can observe how many honda lovers have bought the new gli/xli.

    baatein civic ki leni phir corolla, jab poocho they say yar its somewhat bigger than a city, this time city didnt appeal and all.
    civic was very exp or i already have that or had that

    last thig id like to ask how many people who debate for civic have a toyota standing at their home be it a vitz or a prado or any toyota vehicle?!

    fact of the matter is toyota has always focused on basics and honda on cosmetics, close a city 09 door and ull know, aisi power window ko sarr mein marein jo darwaza hi girney wala hota hai?!
    The future of Automobile...Mercedes-Benz S Class Saloon
