The Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla have long since been compared to each other. Both are solid options for shoppers looking for a sporty but compact model. Which of these will win in 2020? Let’s find out.

To begin, you’ll want to know both the 2020 Honda Civic Sedan and the 2020 Toyota Corolla have multiple trims. However, for the purpose of this comparison, we are going to stick with the Si trim for the Civic and the XLE trim for the Corolla, as both models are quite similar in price. As you’ll immediately see, the Civic Si sedan has much more horsepower than the Toyota Corolla XLE. While the Toyota Corolla pumps out a respectable 139 horsepower and 126 lb.-ft. of torque, the Honda Civic simply outpaces it with an impressive 205 hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. So, if you are looking for a powerful model that leaps to action, the Civic Si will probably interest you more.

Both the transmission and upholstery could go either way, it really depends on your preferences. It’s common to have customers who like manual transmission and actively seek to have it in their car. If you are one of these shoppers, or if you just don’t care what transmission your car has, then the Civic Si is a great choice. However, if you can’t stand manual transmission and would rather have pretty much anything else, then the Corolla is for you. We oftentimes see customers who enjoy the CVT transmission and bolstered fuel economy that many models have with this transmission.

Likewise, there are many customers who prefer the durability of cloth seats, rather than the admittedly luxurious but also more difficult to take care of leatherette seats. So, if you like cloth, again choose the Civic, but if you like leather/leatherette, then go for the Corolla.
