Should I buy 2009 Yaris hatchback or 2008 Civic sedan?

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Can someone tell me which one is a better choice - these are the options from private
1. 2009 Toyota Yaris 3 door hatchback, 31K mileage - price obo $9500
2. 2008 Honda Civic sedan, 71K mileage - price obo $10500

Both cars are garage kept and in good conditions. Nothing special about their
additional options - both of them are basically base models. The prices are within the
range of KBB and NADA.
My budget is to spend max $10K.

I am a student who mostly needs to go from point A to B (my apartment is close to
campus) but I might want to travel around states during holidays. Gas saver and low
maintenance costs are my top priorities. Size is not my priority because I just need
the car for myself.

This is going to be my first car and I just recently learn driving. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much!

Honda people will say go Honda - I don't like either Honda or Toyota so for my buck the newer one with half the miles would be my choice.
