    Well even though I like both cars I like the Corolla better I think the Civic is more a lower level vehicle compared. It really depends on the year. I owned several Corollas in the 80s and they were really fine cars. I think the Camry is a better car now and we own one now. I always thought of a Civic as a lesser car than say a Prelude or an Accord by far. An Accord is more like a Corolla to compare for value.

    A 2007 Civic is probably a fine car compared since Preludes are dead but in my opinion I think a Corolla is better for what it is worth.

    Really depends though are you buying a hybrid????

    The Civic coupe and Corolla are close to the same price it depends I guess there are lots of options.

    Both are very good cars. But, many sources say that Honda beats Toyota in this case. The Corolla is dated and the Civic has a frsh design. The Civic also has a hybrid option. The Corolla isn't a bad car, but I think the Civic beats it overall.

    I am a salesman for Honda. As a consumer you should really go to the dealerships and check both of the cars for yourself, do not get influence by comments on the Internet. They both are good cars. Believe me, I sell Honda's, and when you equip both vehicles with the same options they are the same price. Honda comes with a lot more safety features standards and the Corolla doesn't, check it out for yourself, you'll see. Also, the civic was car of the year by Motor-trend in 2006. The corolla is more economic in the beginning price. If you go to the web side of Intellchoice, you can see their research and results about which car was more economic, considering everything, gas, insurance, maintenance, depreciation, etc, Civic was the first place. This comment was as a consumer not as a salesman.

    After buying a mediocre Saturn, I was sure my next car would be a Honda Civic. However, I happened to have a Corolla rental car for a few weeks, and when I test drove the Civic, it felt like a tin can next to the Corolla! Lately however, Toyota has been having quality issues. So... : / I really don't know what to tell you.

    I never really liked the Corolla's, the Camry's are much nicer. So I'd have to say a Honda Civic. The 2007 Civic Si is my favorite current model! I own a Honda, they're great on gas!

    well so far everyone who answered this question is correct.. the better value of a car is the toyota as they will last for a long time. They aren't the most comfortable or stylish looking vehicles but for overall expenses beat out the Honda 10 to 1. Now the Honda can also be a long laster if you properly maintain it. But the Toyota should outlast the honda by over 100,000 miles.. The honda is more stylish and can be retrofitted to many aftermarket body kits. The honda motor has more power but the Toyota is a stronger lasting motor. Your honda will be on its 2nd or 3rd engine before that toyota motor kicks the bucket. It is not unheard of to see a toyota with over 500,000 miles on it. and still driving great. Both are a good vehicles but I would take the toyota..

    The Civic is a much better car. It starts in a higher class than the Corolla does. The Civic is larger, faster, and has better ergonomics and styling. They get the same fuel economy, and you can expect the same reliability from a Toyota and a Honda.

    In a comparison test of 2003 Econo Sedans, the Civic won 1st place and the Corolla got 5th. Check it out for your self.
