Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla: Interior

Both the 2019 Honda Civic and the 2019 Toyota Corolla are stylish and well-appointed, but only the Corolla offers the safety tech, multimedia features, and rear legroom you’ll need to treat all of your passengers to a more enjoyable touring experience:

  • The Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, while the Honda Civic comes standard with Honda Sensing. Both offer similar advanced driver-assistance features, with one exception: only the Corolla has automatic high-beams.
  • The baseline trim of the Honda Civic only includes a 5-Inch Color LCD Screen. The Corolla, on the other hand, offers a 6.1-inch touchscreen, standard. The Corolla entertainment system, powered by Entune™, also includes six speakers standard, compared to just four in the Civic.
  • Class-leading rear legroom just might be the Corolla’s biggest advantage over its rival. Rear-seated passengers will enjoy an incredible 41.4 inches of legroom in the Corolla. Those seated in the back row of the Civic will be cramped in with 37.4 inches.
