ur comparison is 100 percent is tilt towards corolla , looks like u r a corolla fan
ride comfort , always CIVIC
built quality , CIVIC is much better.
maintenance , that days r gone , CIVIC n coralla maintenence are parallel or some times civic is cheaper, that coz of honda is using all the parts of THAILAND , where as toyota is using all japenese parts ,
i have both the cars i myself maintain them from toyota Rawal , and honda classic
