Corolla vs Honda Civic

  • Feel safe knowing the Corolla LE offers 8 airbags, while the Honda Civic LX only offers 6 airbags
  • The Corolla LE has driver knee and passenger seat cushion air-bags, which is not available in the Civic
  • Find comfort in knowing that your new Corolla comes with ToyotaCare, a 2 year or 25,000 mile (whichever comes first) no-cost factory scheduled maintenance plan
  • The Corolla offers the Star Safety System, which includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology. The Focus only offers some of these features: AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, Anti-lock brake System, and Electronic Brake Assist
  • The Corolla comes with more cutting-edge connectivity courtesy of a standard touchscreen with Siri Eyes Free voice controls. The base Civic doesn't come equipped with either
  • While the Corolla comes equipped with more infotainment technology, the Civic doesn't even offer a CD player. The Corolla still offers a CD player, so you listen to music the way you want
  • The navigation and multimedia system in the Corolla offers 6 speakers, auxiliary audio jack, USB 2.0 port with iPod connectivity and control; the Civic has 4 speakers and a USB Audio Interface with charging port in front
  • The first thing you'll probably hear about the Corolla's design is its surprisingly spacious rear seat. Rear legroom is more than generous, and it overshadows the more cramped backseat of the Civic
  • It's the little things that can make a big difference in a compact car, like the base Civic's lack of rear cup holders, a lack of backseat accommodations that really put the Corolla ahead in terms of comfort
  • Comfort is key: the Corolla LE offers automatic climate control with dust and pollen filter and push-button controls; the Honda Civic LX's climate control system does not have the same filters
  • You can turn every drive into a joyride with the Corolla's sport-themed S model (with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters) or the S Plus trim (with firmer suspension tuning). The Civic doesn't offer either of these performance-enhancing features

Corolla vs Ford Focus

  • The Corolla offers the Star Safety System, which includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology. The Focus only offers some of these features: AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, Anti-lock brake System, and Electronic Brake Assist
  • The Corolla is equipped with 8 total airbags, including a front passenger seat-cushion airbag (not available in the Focus), while the Focus only offers 7 airbags
  • The Corolla has 8 airbags versus the 7 airbags available in the Focus
  • You will receive ToyotaCare, a 2 year or 25,000 mile no-cost maintenance plan, with the purchase of your new Corolla; however, you do not receive the same comprehensive maintenance plan with a new Ford Focus
  • Enjoy the convenience of an integrated back up camera with projected path on your new Corolla; the Focus has a more basic rear view camera
  • Standard LED low-beam headlights and daytime running lights give Corolla drivers exceptional visibility right out of the gate. Ford Focus drivers have to pay more for LED lighting
  • When you opt for the manual transmission, you only get a five-speed with the Focus versus the Corolla's six-speed
  • The Corolla's speed sensitive steering makes for a better steering feel and improves maneuverability when parking or driving at slow speeds. The Focus doesn't offer this feature
  • The Corolla is both lighter and longer than the Focus with more front and rear legroom and greater overall passenger volume
  • Enjoy automatic climate control with dust and pollen filter and push-button controls in the Corolla. The Focus SE offers an automatic temperature control system, but only when you upgrade to a higher trim level

Corolla vs Nissan Sentra

  • The Corolla offers the Star Safety System, which includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology. The Focus only offers some of these features: AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, Anti-lock brake System, and Electronic Brake Assist
  • The Corolla LE has 8 airbags while the Sentra S CVT has 6; the Corolla offers a driver knee airbag and a front passenger seat-cushion airbag, which are not available in the Sentra
  • The Corolla comes with ToyotaCare, a 2 year or 25,000 mile maintenance plan not available when you buy a Nissan Sentra
  • Pamper passengers with the Corolla's long and wide design. It makes for more rear legroom, headroom, and shoulder room than the Sentra
  • The Sentra looks barebones in comparison, as the Corolla is equipped with a standard touchscreen with Toyota Entune™ audio and Siri Eyes Free voice controls. The base Sentra doesn't even have a display
  • The Corolla boasts much more pep in its step than the Sentra. In fact, the Sentra is one of the slowest in its class
  • Even with its more satisfying ride, the Corolla manages to earn greater overall efficiency than the Sentra as well
  • The Corolla LE has LED Daytime Running Lights, a feature that is not available on the Sentra
  • Enjoy listening to music through the Corolla's 6 speakers verses the 4 speakers in the Sentra
  • The Corolla LE has automatic climate control with dust and pollen filter and push-button controls, while the Sentra simply offers air conditioning with in-cabin microfilter
  • HP/Torque: Corolla has 132 hp @ 6000 rpm/128 lb-ft @ 4400 rpm vs. the Sentra S CVT's 130 hp @ 6000 rpm/128 lb-ft @ 3600 rpm

Corolla vs Chevy Cruze

  • Have peace of mind knowing the Corolla LE has Toyota Safety sense™ P, which includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Auto High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. These types of technologies are buried in the most expensive Cruze trims
  • The Cruze LS offers a basic rear vision camera; however, the Corolla offers an integrated backup camera with projected path
  • Receive ToyotaCare, 2 years or 25,000 miles (whichever comes first) no-cost factory scheduled maintenance, when you buy a new Corolla
  • The Corolla comes equipped with distance-pacing, adaptive cruise control as standard, versus the conventional system on the Cruze
  • Standard bi-LED headlights and LED running lights give Corolla drivers a clearer view of the road -- and, in turn, improved visibility to other drivers. The Cruze's halogen headlamps can't compete.
  • While the Corolla is shorter and thinner than the Cruze (read: more maneuverable), it still manages to offer more front and rear legroom for an overall more comfortable ride
  • Not many drivers choose to drive stick shift, so it makes sense that the Corolla has a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Cruze, however, comes equipped with a manual and asks drivers to pay more for the automatic
  • Stay comfortable in the new Corolla with automatic climate control with dust and pollen filters and push-button controls. The Cruze simply offers single-zone air conditioning
  • The Corolla has Bi-LED headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, a feature not offered on the Cruze

Corolla vs Hyundai Elantra

  • Toyota Safety Sense™ P, which includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrain Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Auto High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, is available with the Corolla LE, but is not available with the Elantra SE
  • The Corolla offers 8 airbags, while the Elantra SE is only equipped with 7 airbags
  • Enjoy 2 years or 25,000 mile no-cost factory maintenance with the Corolla's ToyotaCare
  • The Corolla comes well-equipped with standard touchscreen infotainment with voice controls, Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, and Siri Eyes Free functionality. Elantra drivers have to pay more for even basic connectivity
  • Corolla drivers have a particularly clear view of the road with standard bi-LED headlights and LED running lights. The Corolla's generous exterior lighting also sheds light on the subpar design of the Elantra, which comes equipped with conventional halogen headlamps
  • Adaptive cruise control is also a standard Corolla feature, while the Elantra base model doesn't even come equipped with conventional cruise control
  • Despite the fact that few people drive stick shift nowadays, the Elantra comes equipped with a manual transmission. The Corolla powertrain, however, thoughtfully includes a standard CVT
  • The Corolla is longer than the Elantra with greater overall passenger volume and a lot more rear legroom
