The Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic are both great compact cars

A few small cars continue to rule the sedan class despite the segment's recent decline in sales.

Naturally, the Corolla and the Civic are two of the best vehicles in that market.

 While both vehicles have their admirers, many buyers are only searching for a reliable and economical vehicle.

The Corolla and the Civic are quite close to one another in terms of their specifications and characteristics. 

As opposed to the Honda, which begins at roughly $24,000, the Toyota will be less expensive.

Both Japanese automakers provide a sportier version of their sedans, and their engines are identical. 

Standard 2.0-liter engines in the Corolla and Civic both produce 169 horsepower.
