If you're looking for a budget-friendly compact car, then chances are you've googled the features in the 2023 Honda Civic and the 2023 Toyota Corolla more than once. Both vehicles have a versatile lineup with different body styles to meet the needs of their customers.

It has a lineup of punchy engines that provide drivers with a driving experience that's swift and nimble and it has a handsome interior design.

The Toyota Corolla meets the Civic head-on when it comes to versatility but falls short when it comes to power under the hood, it also has a new list of multimedia features but whether it can contend with the Honda Civic remains to be seen.

2023 Civic vs 2023 Corolla: Interior Space and Comfort

Both vehicles have a sedan model and a hatchback model but no matter what body style you purchase they seat five occupants in two rows. The difference is between the head and leg room in each vehicle.  For both models, the sedan is a little roomier than the hatchback, but the Honda Civic sedan offers buyers more space overall. The interior space in the Civic is equal to or more than the Corolla in every category, but the difference is most notable in the rear seat legroom. While adult occupants can fit in the rear seat with the Toyota Corolla's 34.8 inches of legroom, they'll have a much more enjoyable ride with the ability to stretch out in the Honda Civic's 37.4 inches of legroom.
