Toyota Corolla

When it comes to driver-assistance tech, both the Corolla and the Civic offer impressive features that work constantly to help keep you and your passengers safe. You’ll feel more confident behind the wheel than ever before.

Safe and Sound

The Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0, which includes features such as:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Road Sign Assist
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

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.

A Sedan That Looks Out for You

Unique to the Camry is Proactive Driving Assist, a new feature of the upgraded Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0. This feature uses cameras and sensors to monitor the road. When certain scenarios are observed, this system can apply gentle braking on curves, when approaching a vehicle in front of you, or when a pedestrian or bicyclist is detected.



Toyota Corolla

You deserve to feel equally comfortable on short drives to the market and long commutes out of town. No matter the length of the drive, the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic have the goods to make every moment worthwhile.

A Relaxing Ride

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 sedan offers seating for up to five passengers with available heated front seats to keep you cozy.

So, no matter where you venture, you can enjoy plenty of wiggle room and cozy seating.

Smooth Moves

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.

When equipped with this transmission, you can experience effortless acceleration from the Corolla and the Civic.



Toyota Corolla

Want to experience the thrill of a high-horsepower engine and the efficiency of a hybrid model? If so, you’ll want to choose the Toyota Corolla. This model grants the ability to satisfy the performance you crave with its various powertrains and impressive fuel economy.

Enjoy Limitless Driving

As you travel in the utmost comfort, you’d rather be on the road than standing at a gas pump. For that, you’ll need a fuel-efficient ride. That’s why the Toyota Corolla provides an EPA-estimated 32 city and 41 highway MPG.* Plus, the available hybrid powertrain can offer up to an EPA-estimated 53 city and 46 highway MPG.*

The Honda Civic, on the other hand, isn’t yet available with a hybrid powertrain. Its standard configuration can only offer up to 31 city and 40 highway MPG.

Power Up

On top of their fuel-efficient performances, the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic provide multiple engine options. In the Corolla, you can select from one of two engines:

  • 2.0L 4-cylinder: 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque
  • 1.8L hybrid 4-cylinder: 138 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque

Similarly, the Honda Civic offers two engines: a 4-cylinder engine and a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. However, its base engine falls short of the standard engine in the Corolla by offering just 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. Plus, as mentioned previously, only the Corolla is available with a hybrid powertrain, which helps maximize efficiency.
