The 2015 Honda Civic sedan is available to Elgin and Schaumburg drivers now at Brilliance Honda in Crystal Lake, and if you’re looking for a smart buy in the compact car world, you’re going to have a tough time finding a car that’s better equipped,  more fuel efficient, or more affordable. Priced starting at just $18,490 (MSRP)*, the Civic Sedan is great for all different kinds of drivers, and we think you’ll love it.

But the compact car world is full of vehicles, some of which are almost as popular as the 2015 Honda Civic. How does a competing model like the 2015 Toyota Corolla compare to Honda’s Civic?

The Civic: Engineered to Perfection

Under the hood of the 2015 Honda Civic sedan is a 1.8L four-cylinder engine capable of 143 hp, and despite the power, it’s one of the most fuel-efficient sedans on the road. The 2015 Civic LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 39 highway mpg.**

So, how does the Corolla compare? Its engine is also a 1.8L four-cylinder, but it only manages 132 hp. You might think that the Corolla would be more efficient at the lower power, but that’s just not the case: it’s only rated at 36 highway mpg. It’s less powerful and less efficient than the Civic.

Honda Redefines Standard Features

Since 2013, Honda has been reimagining what it means for features to be “standard” on a vehicle like the Civic. The entry-level Civic LX comes with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, a touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, SMS texting capabilities, Pandora internet radio, steering wheel-mounted controls, and more.

Now, the Corolla does try to keep up with the Civic, but it’s even lacking in some of the most basic features. Toyota’s sedan doesn’t even have cruise control or floor mats, let alone a rearview camera.
