    Find below the technical specs comparison:

    Description ------------- 1.8L iVtec -------------- 1.8L vvti

    Displacement ------------ 1799cc ------------------ 1794cc
    Max Bhp ----------------- 140bhp @6300rpm --------- 134bhp @6000rpm
    Max Torque -------------- 128lb-ft @4300rpm ------- 126lb-ft @4200rpm
    Wheel ------------------- Aluminium --------------- Steel



    Ok from the specs its pretty much clear that VVTI does have the low end torque, so technically its initial pick-up should be better then honda.
    though never managed to race an altis, i have had a chance to drive the manual iVtec.

    Don't know but i feel like it has more power then altis in every aspect right from the start.

    then honda ppl claim this:

    "At high engine loads, such as when starting from a standstill or stepping on the accelerator, DBW fully opens the throttle while VTEC optimizes intake valve timing to generate 2.0-liter-equivalent power."

    i think they're pretty much rite as iv'e felt the power right from the start when you floor the paddle.

    My choise, Go for honda; you'll love it!!

    power, drive experience every thing rocks.....

    Salam

    to recognize an Altis, you have to look at the Altis tag at the rear, otherwise generally there is no difference in a Xli and Altis. Also features like ABS and air bags are useless in Altis (as mentioned by many owners of the car). Altis is all about its engine, and rest is really not impressive. I don't consider Altis a good value for money

    yes agree wid @hsnmz 100%
    what the heck...??? pay 9 lac or 15lac still get the same disgusting shape...??? very less color options.very little difference in all models other than engines....!!!!

    i wud suggest honda for that...abt the visibility problem,yes,city has a draw back that it was very thick a nd b pillars which make visibility a problem,but the same hick pillars save u in a roll over...!!!
    yes u dnt see the bonnet of new hondas frm the cockpit...but if u drive ur car for a few days,u can easily park/reverse/squezze it frm narrow places.once u get on it,its not a problem.i naver bumped my cars front in any thing...if u ask me to park the car wid just 1 inch distance frm the frnt bumper...i easilty can.
    to kia moral mila...???
    east or west...honda is the best(Y)

    Both are nice cars. As far as bhp concerns Civic has more and more torque. People hate Altis for same shape as in other corollas. The engine of Altis is way powerful in entire Pak Corolla line up. It has ABS and One Air Bag also.
    So if you want to drive in City than go for Civic 1.8
    and if you want to drive in villages then go for Altis 1.8
    It is impossible to please everybody.

    Dont keep fooling yourself, Corolla is not a superior car, probably never will be. Even if Corolla becomes the world's greatest econobox, the Civic will still be one green-leaf ahead of it.

    There's a reason that every car magazine on planet earth supports the Civic over the Corolla. They know how to evaluate cars, not develop biases which make no sense

    See reviews of the "all new 09 Corolla" and you'll realise that Toyota, 3 years later after the new Civic, STILLcan't make a car that can compete with the Civic.

    Irony: Corolla went back to the drawing board after they saw the new Civic, despite that, they couldn't do much.

    Don't get me wrong, they'll still sell 400,000 Rollas a year in USA because its become a "lovable brand". But its nothing more than that.

    Civic v Corolla ......... Ok! Civic has an edge

    But what about outside world i mean Camry, Pruis, Mark II, Mark X, Vitz, Land Cruiser, Prado, Hilux, Highlander, Crown and others .................................................. .
    It is impossible to please everybody.

    Internal Auditor,

    Civic not only has an edge, it eats an Altis for breakfast daily. And since you made it a point to ask, I'll educate you:

    1. Over the Prius, Honda has Civic Hybrid, more efficient, better looking, better technology.

    2. Ever heard of the Acura RDX? The all-time-all-wheel-drive turbo SUV crossover? See your rubbish Prado compete with that

    3. Try the MDX on for size. It will eat your "Landcruiser" alive, with its 300bhp V6.

    4. When was the last time Toyota made a legend like the NSX? Please don't compare Supra... Supra is no way a competitor to the NSX.

    5. Ever heard of Acura RL? So much for Toyota Crown...

    6. Mark II? Don't even get me started, the Acura TSX/TL are leap years ahead of that ogisan-no-kuruma (that's Japanese for "grandad's car").

    7. As far as hilux goes, sorry but Honda makes sophisticated cars. Not pickup trucks for doodhwalas, not in the mainstream segment anyways.

    8. Also let me know when was the last time Toyota, came up with a car which could compete with any of the Type Rs (like Civic, Integra, Accord).

    9 . S2000? Wheres the Toyota alternative?

    10. Camry? Puhhhleeazzz, have you seen the new Accord? It has two Camry's for breakfast everyday.

    11. Ever heard of the FCX Clarity??? I presume not. Because while Toyota is busy fudging around with hybrids... Honda is making cars which are actually running on the fuel of the future. Google it and you'll understand why.

    Sonny, you need to learn that Toyota is no longer the company it was once-upon-a-time. The only thing Toyota is good at, is making every car look the same. Its an ugly "people's car". Heck if the "people" wanted a ***** on the bonnet of every Toyota, they'd probably put it on coz the "people" want it.

    Toyota and Honda is not even a comparison. Honda=Lightyears in the future, Toyota=Making a car for the masses, something that appeal to every average joe.

    Lol @ Cyclestyne
    My friend, Ive always liked ur posts cuz no matter what, you always come up with a reasonable argument favoring Honda, and me being a fan of the same brand appreciate your efforts thoroughly.The last post though got a little overboard..dont ya think? Comeon say yes.....I really dont wanna think the biggest proponent of Honda on this sorry site is an idiot! No offence intended, but just to take an example, the MDX don't compare with the LX570, and the RL is a big white elephant that Acura realizes...no wonder its undergoing the most expensive MMC in acura's history. Lots of your other comparos are kinda comparing apples to oranges, but i wont go in details as long as you get the gist. Take care
