Corolla Hatchback VS. Civic Hatchback: Which is Better

Corolla Hatchback VS. Civic Hatchback: Which is Better


Shopping for a safe and stylish compact car that offers a healthy amount of standard features for an affordable price? Chances are, the new Corolla Hatchback has come up on your search. With an impressive fuel economy, standard industry-leading safety tech and fun styling, the Corolla has seriously impressed Edmonton buyers!


People looking at the Toyota Corolla Hatchback are often also looking at the Honda Civic Hatchback. We have the research to confidently say the Corolla Hatchback is the savviest choice. Buckle up, take some notes, and fall in love with the Corolla Hatchback.


Fuel Economy First

The first big win for the Corolla Hatchback over the Civic Hatchback is in the fuel savings. Thanks to its TNGA- 2.0L Dynamic Force engine, the Corolla Hatchback is the most fuel efficient car in its class.


By using Toyota’s latest fuel-saving technology and pairing it with a CVT, the Corolla Hatchback achieves a combined fuel efficiency as low as 6.7 L/100 km which bests the Honda Civic Hatchback which falls just short at 6.9 L/100 km.


It all adds up, especially when you compare the Corolla to the Civic Hatchback Sport or Touring models that make use of a turbocharged engine which requires premium-grade fuel, which is far more expensive than regular gasoline.


Meanwhile, the Corolla Hatchback engine employs a high compression ratio for maximum efficiency, while using regular-grade fuel which costs far less when it comes time to fuel up. That doesn’t mean the Corolla Hatchback is any less powerful however. With its 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine generating 168 horsepower and the D-4S injection system working to extract the maximum amount of energy from every drop of fuel burned, it offers a fun and sporty drive.

The Best Features

The Toyota Corolla Hatchback has a long list of standard features including LED headlights, automatic climate control, and a 60/40-split folding rear bench seat. One luxury that the Corolla Hatchback offers that the Civic Hatchback does not is the leather-wrapped steering wheel, more commonly found in luxury vehicles. Finally, heated seats allow you to further pad your ride during the winter months.


In terms of tech, owners will enjoy a standard Wi-Fi hotspot, an 8-inch touchscreen -- which is larger than the Civic screen --  Bluetooth Capability and Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa compatibility.

A Superior Safety System

What truly separates the Corolla Hatchback from the Civic Hatchback is Toyota Safety Sense, the innovative suite of safety technologies ahead of its class. The Toyota Corolla Hatchback comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 which includes:


  • Pre-Collision System and Pedestrian Detection
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Road Sign Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist


Additionally, the Corolla Hatchback has seven airbags, including a driver knee airbag, as well as advanced anti-lock brakes, and full-speed traction control with Electronic Stability Control.


More Spacious


The Corolla Hatchback is built on the new TNGA platform which gives passengers more room than the Civic Hatchback. In fact, headroom in both the front and rear seats sits at the top of its class. This is great news for all of us, but especially for our tall passengers!


Corolla Offers The Best Value 


Edmonton Buyers love the Toyota Corolla Hatchback and here’s why: In addition to offering a LONG list of standard features for an amazing price point, it also has industry-best safety technologies for no additional charge.


If you want to upgrade and add more luxuries to the mix, the Upgrade Package includes a heated steering wheel, wireless charging and the full fleet of TSS for less than the comparably equipped Civic Hatchback.
