The 2021 Honda Civic and 2021 Toyota Corolla are two of Canada's best-selling vehicles and each stands out for reliability, comfort, fuel economy and safety. That said, the Civic has dominated car sales in Canada for over 20 years and its success is no coincidence. These two compact sedans are capable of meeting many types of needs, but there are several reasons why more buyers are choosing the Civic over the Corolla.
In summary, the 2021 Honda Civic is more fuel efficient and spacious as well, in addition to offering more power and better performance. Let's take a closer look by taking a look at the ways the Civic sets itself apart from the Corolla.
