The 2018 Toyota Corolla comes in six trim levels: L, LE, LE Eco, XLE, SE, and XSE. All trims, except the LE Eco, come standard with a lackluster 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that delivers 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. Not only is the engine smaller than the 2018 Honda Civic's, but it is also significantly less powerful as well. It doesn't end there, however. The 2018 Corolla is less fuel-efficient* than the 2018 Civic while offering less cargo volume and passenger volume.

The 2018 Honda Civic comes in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring. The LX and EX trims both come standard with a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine that generates 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque, but drivers looking for more power under the hood are able to opt for one of the higher trim levels. The EX-T, EX-L, and Touring trims all come equipped with an impressive 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that kicks out 174 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque, which practically blows the 2018 Corolla's engine performance out of the water.
