Standard Comfort, Entertainment, and Design

When it comes to base model features, it’s tough to be disappointed by either of these compact sedans. The Corolla and the Civic both come with standard Bluetooth® hands-free calling, cruise control, full power features, and many additional conveniences that the modern driver has come to expect. From here, though, the Corolla begins to build some space between itself and the Civic. For example, every Corolla trim comes standard with a six-speaker stereo system, compared to the Civic’s four speakers. Also, only the Corolla comes standard with hands-free voice controls and a touchscreen interface.
