Performance Specs and Max Fuel Economy


The Honda Civic comes standard with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that makes 158 hp, but you’ll also have three other engines to choose from, including a turbocharged 1.5L inline-four that makes 174 hp, a specially-tuned version of the 1.5L engine that makes 201 hp on the Civic Si, and a new Type R turbocharged 2.0L inline-four that makes 306 hp. Plus, with the 1.5L engine, the Civic can get up to an impressive EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway and 32 mpg city*.

The Corolla, on the other hand, is only offered with a 1.8L four-cylinder engine. In most cases, this makes just 132 hp, though there’s an LE ECO model that produces 140 hp, still falling short of even the Civic’s base engine. Max fuel economy on the LE ECO also tops out at only 40 mpg highway and 30 mpg city.

If space is a priority for you, you’ll find the Honda Civic again pulls ahead of the competition. The total interior volume of the Civic measures 112.9 cubic feet, which is more than that Civic’s total interior volume of 110.5 cubic feet.
