Cargo Space

Just because you want a compact car does not mean you want to feel cramped or limited. The Honda Civic lets you carry a lot of cargo around Union thanks to a spacious trunk that can hold 15.1 cubic-feet of cargo. The Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, is quite limited by comparison with a trunk that measures only 13.0 cubic-feet.

The Corolla comes standard with regular headlights and climate controls, but app integration is not available at any trim level.
