If you’re looking for affordable transportation that doesn’t skimp on features or safety, then a compact sedan could be exactly what you’re looking for. These vehicles are easy to park, easy to drive, and easy to live with – but there’s a storm brewing. Two of the biggest names in the business, the Corolla and the Civic, are sizing each other up, and McPhillips Toyota pits these two against each other to find out who would win in a battle for compact sedan supremacy.
So without further ado, let’s see whether it’s the 2019 Corolla or its mortal enemy that ends up on top!

As you can see, while the Corolla and the Civic might cost the same, the level of equipment that comes standard wildly differs. The Corolla comes standard with “Toyota Safety Sense P”, bundling equipment like Lane Departure Alert and Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection to keep you and others safe on the roads. It’s no wonder why the Corolla was awarded the IIHS’ (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) Top Safety Pick award, while the Civic wasn’t.
