Toyota Corolla vs Honda Civic: Fuel Efficiency

2020 Toyota Corolla MPGWe’ll start with a glance at efficiency. The 2020 Toyota Corolla is an incredibly efficient compact car. How so? We’re talking about EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of up to 31 city/40 highway/34 combined MPG.1 On the other hand, the 2020 Honda Civic LX CVT and Touring trims are maxing out at 30 city/38 highway/33 combined MPG.

Toyota Corolla vs Honda Civic: Safety Systems

Safety is another area in which the 2020 Toyota Corolla really excels. Its standard Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) suite includes a variety of driver-assistive technologies that can help you to stay more alert. And, if they sense that an accident is imminent, they can even automatically help to engage your brakes.

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/ PD)
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection (LDA w/ SA)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)
  • Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)

2020 Toyota Corolla Driving

Last, but certainly not least, TSS 2.0 even includes Road Sign Assist (RSA), a cool feature that can help you to easily notice Speed Limit signs, STOP signs, DO NOT ENTER signs, and others that you could otherwise miss.

Then there’s Honda Sensing®. While the engineers over at Honda have clearly tried hard to outfit their 2020 Civic with a comparable suite of driver-assistive technologies, they’ve fallen a bit short. Sure, it includes its fair share of collision warnings and lane departure warnings, but there’s nothing like the Road Sign Assist function that we just mentioned. You don’t know what you’re missing until you’ve tried it out.

Corolla vs Civic: Style & Design

2020 Toyota CorollaFinally, there’s the question of style and design—an important consideration for anybody who drives their car frequently. The 2020 Toyota Corolla comes in a wide range of available exterior colors, including Celestite for the sophisticated types, Barcelona Red Metallic for the wild ones, and Blue Crush Metallic for anybody who likes to work hard and play hard. You’re encouraged to reach out to our teammates to see what’s available, as these and its other hues look great coating its available aggressive sporty front fascia.

It’s unfortunate that some of the 2020 Honda Civic colors look so blandly traditional, including Crystal Black Pearl and Platinum White Pearl. Plus, its front fascia isn’t nearly as eye catching or as sporty as Toyota.
