How does the 2016 Toyota Corolla compare to a Honda Civic?
As one of the world’s best-selling vehicles of all time, it should come as no surprise that the Toyota Corolla provides an impressive level of safety, technology and comfort. The 2016 Corolla certainly tops Honda’s Civic in passive safety features. Can you believe that the 2016 Toyota Corolla comes standard with knee airbags for both driver and front passenger? A similarly equipped Honda Civic LX does not have this safety feature – nor does any of the more expensive Civic models.
You’ll be amazed at the amount of the latest tech features that can be had on a value-priced Toyota Corolla. On the 2016 Toyota Corolla S Premium, you’ll find a navigation system comes standard. Compare that to a similarly priced Honda Civic EX-L model, where navigation isn’t even available as an option. Also, don’t expect to find the Corolla S Premium’s standard satellite radio and voice-activated controls on a similarly equipped Civic. If you want the latest tech in a compact sedan, the clear choice is Toyota Corolla!
You might expect that driving a compact car means you have to sacrifice comfort, but with the 2016 Toyota Corolla that’s just not the case. Your passengers will also appreciate the Corolla’s cabin, which is more spacious than that of the Civic. In fact, the difference in rear seat dimension between Corolla and Civic is not even close! Back-seat passengers in the 2016 Toyota Corolla will find a whopping 5.2 inches more legroom, and nearly an inch more headroom than their Civic counterparts. If you care about the comfort of passengers in your compact sedan, you’ve got to get into a Toyota Corolla.
As you can see, the 2016 Toyota Corolla stacks up very well when compared to its rival from Honda.
