Toyota Corolla vs Honda Civic

  • Handling
    More than just a mere Sport drive mode, the Corolla offer a sport-tune S Plus model with the S Plus model and its firmer suspension tuning and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters (with the automatic transmission). The Civic doesn't offer either of these performance enhancements.

  • Interior Space
    Your passengers will feel way less pampered in the Civic with its lack of rear cup holders and minimal rear legroom. The Corolla boasts class-leading backseat space as well as ample storage space for cargo and cups alike.

  • Technology
    The Corolla comes amply equipped for the modern driver with standard Toyota Entune® touchscreen infotainment and Siri Eyes Free voice commands, yet there's still an auxiliary hack, a USB port, and a CD player. The Civic comes equipped with a small display without touch-response and a USB port.

Toyota Corolla vs Ford Focus

  • Options
    Standard LED low-beam headlights and daytime running lights mean the Corolla comes equipped with luxury-level visibility. The Focus can't say the same.

  • Transmission
    If you choose a model with a manual transmission, you get a six-speed with the Corolla versus a five-speed with the Focus.

  • Handling
    The Corolla boasts exceptional maneuverability at low speed thanks to speed-sensitive steering. The Focus doesn't offer this feature.

  • Interior Space
    Thanks in part to a longer design, the Corolla offer more front and rear legroom and greater overall passenger volume than the Focus.

Toyota Corolla vs Nissan Sentra

  • Interior Space
    Passengers prefer the Corolla due to its long and wide frame, which makes with more rear legroom, headroom, and shoulder room than the Sentra.

  • Technology
    The Corolla's standard touchscreen with Toyota Entune™ audio and Siri Eyes Free voice controls most certainly overshadows the standard Sentra setup of a CD player and aux input.

  • Handling
    The Corolla delivers a more engaging drive with its commendable acceleration -- a get-up-and-go that rivals that of the Sentra. In fact, the Sentra is one of the slowest sedans in its class.

  • Fuel Economy
    Even with that extra pep, the Corolla still manages to outdo the Sentra overall when it comes to fuel efficiency.
