When drivers in the Huntington Beach, Westminster, and Orange County, areas are shopping for an efficient and capable sedan, the 2022 Honda Civic and the 2022 Toyota Corolla often come to mind. Both are popular vehicles with a reputation for reliability. However, which one offers more of what drivers need?
To find out, the team at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Huntington Beach put these two sedans side-by-side in a Honda Civic vs. Toyota Corolla comparison. Read on and contact us with any questions!
If you want a sedan that maximizes efficiency, you’ll probably be happy with either the Civic or the Corolla. With their standard powertrains, their EPA-estimated fuel economies vary only slightly. This is thanks to the continuously variable transmission (CVT) that comes standard in both sedans.
The biggest difference, though, is the amount of power that their engines produce. While both come standard with a 4-cylinder engine, the 2022 Civic generates more power.
The Honda Civic also has an available 1.5L turbocharged engine that puts out 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. The 2021 Corolla can generate 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque with its available 2.0L 4-cylinder engine.
Giving you extra help while commuting on the highway, the Civic comes with standard Traffic Jam Assist. This feature provides a more natural brake and steering feel as well as instant reactions when you need to slow down quickly, helping you with a safe and relaxing drive to work. Unfortunately, the Toyota Corolla doesn’t offer a similar helpful feature.
Wherever the road may take you, you’ll have plenty of safety features in either sedan to help you get there safely. In fact, both the Honda and the Toyota models come standard with a full suite of safety features. These include:
When you get behind the wheel of the Honda Civic or the Toyota Corolla, feel free to stretch out and get comfortable with 42.3 inches of front-row legroom in the Civic and 42 inches in the Corolla.
As for front-row headroom, you can sit up tall in either car. However, you’ll get an extra inch of space in the Civic:
When you pack up for a weekend getaway or head home from the grocery story, you’ll probably want to make sure you have plenty of trunk space for anything you need to bring along. We found that the Honda Civic lets you pack in a bit more:
