Compact cars like the 2021 Honda Civic provide New York motorists with highly efficient performance and high-tech features at a driver-friendly price. However, not all compact sedans are created equal, and this becomes evident when we compare the new Civic to other cars in its class.
In this comparison review, the Civic goes head to head with its persistent rival, the Toyota Corolla. It's quite clear that Honda and Toyota have benchmarked each other's compact cars when developing their own to ensure they stay as competitive as possible. So which one of these sleek sedans will come out on top? Let's get into the comparison review to find out!
The team at DCH Honda of Nanuet has compiled a detailed comparison of the latest compact cars from Toyota and Honda. Here, we see how the 2021 Honda Civic stacks up to the 2021 Toyota Corolla in key areas like performance, efficiency, standard features, versatility and more. If you're shopping for a new compact car, we hope that you'll have a better idea of which of these two sedans you'd rather drive by the end of this article.
No matter whether you select the standard or available engines to compare in this compact car comparison, the Honda Civic powertrains come out on top in the performance department. Its standard 158-hp 2.0-liter engine outperforms the Corolla's smaller 1.8-liter engine that only develops 139 hp. Similarly, the Civic's available 1.5-liter turbo-four engine generates greater horsepower than the Corolla's available 2.0-liter powertrain.
You may have noticed that even with its far greater power output, the 2021 Honda Civic matches the less-potent 2021 Toyota Corolla in EPA-estimated combined mpg. True efficiency with potent power. What more could you ask for in an affordable new compact car?
If you're shopping for a compact sedan that's more than a commuter car, then you'll certainly appreciate the highly refined Civic and its roomy and versatile interior. This is the compact sedan that boasts 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space in its voluminous trunk. Compare that to the Toyota Corolla's 13.1 cubic feet of trunk space, and it's easy to see why many motorists prefer the Civic and its greater cargo-hauling capability.
As you can already see, Honda's 2021 Civic holds several key advantages over the 2021 Toyota Corolla. But the Civic is just getting started!
The 2021 Honda Civic Sedan LX comes standard with an impressive array of amenities, including:
Compact cars like the Honda Civic are agile and easy to maneuver, but that doesn't mean an extra helping hand isn't appreciated. That's why every 2021 Civic comes standard with Honda's Multi-Angle Rearview Camera.
