well both are really nice car. over priced though but good.
i'm a honda fan and have owned every civic. i really thought corolla is not up to good at all.i hated its ride and the interior an every thing. but that didnt make me not considering it to buy.this new model has really up the standards.i really liked the interior and the feel of it.
couple of things; im 6'2" n i find corolla to very very tight.it doesnt have height adjustment seat,has 4 speed auto vs 5 speed auto, one airbag vs 2,no power folding mirrors, but kinda looks better thn the current civic, has a semi auto gear box, 6 speakers. but corolla is about rs80,000 more expensivr than civic.
