The Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla are long-standing competitors in the small car segment. Each has built up a reputation for performance, reliability, and style. Here, we look at the 2019 Civic and the 2019 Corolla to see how they compare.
If you’re interested in a vehicle that performs well out on the road, then the 2019 Honda Civic will suit your needs more so than the 2019 Corolla. The Civic offers the choice of two engine options — a 2.0-liter inline four and a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline four. You will get 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque in the former and 17 horsepower and 167 lb-ft of torque in the later.
Comparatively, the Toyota Corolla has a single engine available, a 1.8-liter inline four that produces 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. That’s less than either of the Honda Civic’s two options.
Both the Civic and the Corolla provide an ample amount of innovations. Each comes standard with safety technologies like Forward Collision Mitigation and Lane Departure Warning through their Honda Sensing® and Toyota Safety Sense™ P systems. This means you will feel confident behind the wheel of either vehicle.
When it comes to keeping you connected, though, the Civic offers a few features that the Corolla doesn’t. For instance, smartphone users can utilize the sought-after Android Auto™ technology. This allows Android users to connect their phones directly to their Honda Civic, mirroring the apps, music, and call features on their car’s touchscreen display. Toyota does not offer Android Auto™ for the Corolla.
Both the Civic and the Corolla are attractive cars, but in their own ways. If your tastes lean towards modern styling, then the Civic might appeal to you more. Honda’s small car has recently undergone a slight redesign, giving it a sleek silhouette that looks more current than its competitor.
You will also find that the Honda Civic has more body options than the Corolla. Both are available as a sedan or hatchback, but only the Honda Civic is offered as a coupe.
Ultimately, the choice may come down to how a vehicle makes you feel. To experience the sensation of being behind the wheel of the 2019 Honda Civic, schedule your test drive at Avery Greene Honda.
