When you need a reliable sedan, two names will likely spring to mind: the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic. While either is undeniably capable of handling commutes around San Diego, Kearny Mesa, and Chula Vista, which vehicle can offer the driving experience you crave?
To answer that and all your other questions, our Norm Reeves Toyota San Diego team put together this Corolla vs. Civic comparison. Take a look at the ways these sedans measure up and decide which is your ideal ride!
FUEL TANK CAPACITY
When it comes to driver assistance tech, both the Corolla and the Civic offer impressive features that work constantly to keep you and your passengers safe.
The 2022 Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0, which includes features such as:
In the realm of safety, the Civic’s standard Honda Sensing® suite of technology offers comparable features. You know you’ll be as safe as possible in either of these smart sedans.
Comfort and convenience are two of the most important features when it comes to the interior of a daily driver. Luckily, the Corolla and the Civic have those covered.
Either offers seating for up to five passengers with available heated front seats to keep you cozy.
How about what they offer to help you enjoy the ride? When listening to music enroute to your destination, the standard Corolla L trim can better support you with a 6-speaker audio system. To compare, the standard 4-speaker audio system in the Civic can’t match the Corolla’s more complete sound experience.
Both compact sedans come standard with a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), which offers exceptionally smooth shifting capabilities. If you want to take control of gear shifting, the CVT is available with paddle shifters in either vehicle.
However, for complete control, you might want to use a manual transmission. In that case, only the 2022 Toyota Corolla can compete. It has an available 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission to offer extra control and fun while on the road—something that’s lacking in the Civic.
As you travel in the utmost comfort, you’d rather be on the road than standing at a gas pump. For that, you need a fuel-efficient ride. That’s why the Toyota Corolla gives you an EPA-estimated 31 city and 40 highway MPG.1 Plus, the available hybrid powertrain can offer up to an EPA-estimated 53 city and 52 highway MPG.1
The Honda Civic, on the other hand, isn’t available with a hybrid powertrain. Its standard configuration can offer up to 31 city and 40 highway MPG and it’s sport trim setup yields a lesser 30 city and 37 highway MPG.
On top of their fuel-efficient performances, the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic provide you with multiple engine options. In the Corolla, you can select from one of three engines:
Alternatively, the Honda Civic offers two engines: a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
