    I really liked that you can control the temp in Corolla. It made the car very comfortable.

    The only thing the civic has going for it is the 1.5t and the cargo room. That’s it.

    Civic is faster, fuel efficient and yet more spacious than the corolla. Don't see a reason to go for Corolla over the civic. Not that its a bad car but nothing special. You won't go wrong with either of these. But if fun and practicality is your biggest requirement then go for Civic.

    I’ve been debating between the two but ultimately I like the civic design. Also I believe if you check the dimensions the civic has more rear leg room than the corolla 😊

    I just stopped at Honda and Toyota today. I test drove a 2019 Civic EX. Then I went to Toyota and sat down and looked at a 2020 Corolla SE. They each have their compromises. Toyota says they have a better lane change, brake assist features. All the features I want in the Civic EX, (Android Car Play, Remote keyless entry and remote start, sunroof, heated seats, heated mirrors for an example are all additional packages on the Toyota Corolla SE. I would need to bump up to the Toyota Corolla XSE to get those features, and they don't offer Android Auto in the Corollas yet. I think for the price range I am in, you get more bang for the buck with the Civic.

    Always Corolla…best selling car of all times. Toyota number 1 is Japan has over 50% of the market. Rest for others to fight. Civic is basically a motorcycle turned into a car. Hondas are very uncomfortable. New Civic is ugly, especially the rear.

    Both are very nice cars, I have a 13 Corolla, but I’m a taller person and keep cracking my head on the top when getting in these lower cars, the Nissan Versa Note being taller, I never hit my head, maybe not as nice a car as these two but I sit up higher when driving the Versa, kinda like driving a compact mini van, if your older and have issues with lower cars, try the Nissan Versa Note.

    Civic is Ugly AF. And one thing you didn't mention at all is the maintenance. Civics have a timing belt that has to be changed at around 70k miles. Corolla has a timing chain that never has to be changed. Thats at least a 1k dollar savings. Then the 2 years free scheduled maintenance is at least another 1k dollar savings.

    Bullshit. Corolla has the remote start feature as well. I just bought a 2020 Corolla two weeks ago and have used it a few times. The dealers are eager to show off that feature so it's virtually impossible not to know about it unless you have your head buried in the sand. Get your facts straight.

    I test drove both vehicles before going with the Corolla. The Civic Sport had a very stiff suspension with which you could feel every single bump in the road. The Corolla SE and XSE had a firm suspension that was noticeably softer than the Civic, but still firm enough for good cornering and handling, just not as harsh as the Civic. The Civic Sport however seemed to to be a tad zippier than the Corolla SE/XSE. Having said that, the Civic's lack of a sunroof and the inferior materials of the interior(take a close look at the control buttons on the steering wheel) left me going with the Corolla. I certainly could've spent about 2 or 3 grand less going with the Civic but it was a little too spartan for my taste. On a side note you can get a sunroof on the Civic but only if you go with the 1.5 liter turbo which I would avoid due to future costs associated with the wear and tear generated by the turbo.

    Civic just looks so much better inside and out imo. I just bought the Nissan Sentra (6speed manual. I’m not touching a CVT especially from Nissan) because of the price through a family friend. 4K difference was enough to go with it instead of the civic but imo the civic is by far the sleekest car in its class hands down.
