Spec Comparison - Honda Civic Vs Toyota Corolla Altis

Competition in the D-segment has become fiercer with the debut of the Honda Civic. After a hiatus of five years, the Japanese car manufacturer reintroduced the Civic brand in India with the 10th generation Civic. Meanwhile, its biggest competitor, the Toyota Corolla Altis, has been ruling this segment for a while now and last received an update in 2017. Both the cars are available in petrol and diesel engine options. Read below to find out more about the key differences between them -  


The newly launched Honda Civic is powered by a 1.8-litre petrol unit that generates 140bhp of power and 174Nm of torque. The petrol version gets a CVT transmission as standard. The diesel version, on the other hand, gets a 1.6-litre unit that produces 118bhp of power and 300Nm of torque. The diesel version is limited to a six-speed manual transmission. 

The petrol variant of the Toyota Corolla Altis is powered by a 1.8-litre petrol engine that generates 138bhp of power and 173Nm of torque. The diesel version is powered by a 1.4-litre engine that generates 87bhp and 205Nm of torque. The Corolla Altis gets a six-speed manual transmission as standard, while the seven-speed automatic is optional in the petrol variant. 


The new-generation Honda Civic is built on a new platform and gets distinctive design highlights in the form of a thick chrome slat in the front with modern sleek headlamps. The high boot lid and a sloping roof give it a sporty stance. The boomerang-shaped LED taillights, twin exhausts, standard 16-inch alloys and 17-inch alloys in the top-spec complete its overall aesthetics.

The Corolla Altis from Toyota gets a new chrome embellished upper grille and a wider radiator grille that is integrated onto the bumper. The new LED headlamps with daytime running lamps and new LED cluster tail lamps give it a distinctive identity. The sedan rides on 16-inch alloy wheels.


The Civic comes with brown and black interiors with silver plastics on the centre console and steering wheel.  As compared to the older model, the new Civic gets a modern layout. Speaking of features, the vehicle gets electronic parking brake, sunroof, auto dimming mirrors, eight-way electric driver seat, dual zone climate control and more. 

The Toyota Corolla Altis is offered with premium upholstery and circular HVAC vents. The instrument cluster gets a 4.2-inch MID display along with a new Touch 2 system with navigation as standard. Interestingly, the car offers a reclining rear seat, thereby making it the only car in the segment to offer this feature.
