For most of its life, the Toyota Corolla hasn’t delivered any type of design that makes it stand out among the Goshen roads. However, this year, it did receive a nice redesign that included improved headlights and some sportier trims. However, the 2017 Civic received an entirely new look that gives it a sporty edge and a design that is noticeable when you hit the road. The fast roofline compared with the wider stance as well as the bracket-like headlamps provide this model with more design features than the competition.

When choosing a smaller vehicle like the Corolla or the Civic, space is always an important facet to factor in to your decision-making. After all, you don’t want to drive off the lot in a vehicle that only you can fit in. The Corolla was designed to fit up to five passengers; however, those in the backseat will be extremely cramped, as this model doesn’t put passenger volume at the top of its list. On the flip side, the Honda Civic was made specifically for adults. Inside this cabin, people over six-feet tall can easily get comfortable in the back and have leg room to spare. That’s because no other vehicle in its class compares with the Civic when it comes to passenger volume. In addition, Civic does this without sparing any cargo space, as you’ll enjoy up to 15 cubic feet of space in the trunk. If you’re looking for this type of cargo space in the Corolla, you’d have to fold some seats down.
