Are you in the market for a compact sedan that’s reliable, efficient, and filled to the brim with modern comforts and conveniences? If so, the 2017 Honda Civic and the 2017 Toyota Corolla have both likely caught your eye already. Still, Eatonton and Macon drivers can easily see that, in a number of key areas, the recently redesigned Honda Civic is simply the superior option. Get the full scoop here, and if your interest is piqued, come check out the new Civic at Butler Honda in Milledgeville, GA.

Standard Features

In addition to offering noticeably more interior space than its counterpart—112.9 cubic feet to 110.5 cubic feet, to be exact—the base trim on the 2017 Honda Civic also comes standard with several features that don’t come standard on the base 2017 Toyota Corolla. While both models get standard Bluetooth® hands-free calling, cruise control, a rearview camera, and full power features, only the Civic gets a standard dual-zone automatic climate control system, thus allowing both the driver and passengers to ride in maximum comfort. The Honda Civic is also the only model that enjoys Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, allowing for ultimate on-the-go connectivity!

Performance and Fuel Economy

When it comes to performance, the Honda Civic is again a clear winner and easily praised. The first three Honda Civic trims come standard with a 2.0L four-cylinder that makes 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. Opt for the EX-T, EX-L, or Touring, and you’ll get a new turbocharged 1.5L inline-four engine that generates 174 hp and up to 167 lb-ft of torque (162 lb-ft on the EX-L and Touring models). Peak fuel economy on the Civic comes in at an eco-conscious EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway and 32 mpg city*.

By contrast, every Toyota Corolla comes standard with a 1.8L four-cylinder engine. Most versions of this engine produce a meager 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, though there’s also an LE Eco trim that makes 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque, though this is still not enough to keep up with the Civic. Plus, there’s unfortunately no version of the Toyota Corolla that gets any better than 40 mpg highway and 30 mpg city, according to the EPA.
