I experienced the same situation a while ago. Decided to stick to civic. And i donnot regret it.
Where corolla has Cruise control, Civic has navigation if you go for that version.
Leather seats are a pain in summers so its not at all a plus point. Iam going for after market fabric seat covers for the same reason.
Both have power steerings so be it EPS or HPS really doesnt matter i think.
Triptonic and info cluster are something to whine about but i dont think i ever required them. If iam going for an auto tranny then why the heck i need triptonic feature unless i have some serious horses under the hood.
But still my suggestion is Altis, as civic is running out of its age.
