2015 Honda Civic vs 2015 Toyota Corolla

2015 Honda Civic

When you’re looking for a practical new small car near Merrillville, IN, we hope that your first thought is the 2015 Honda Civic sedan, available now at Bosak Honda in Highland. The Civic has been many drivers’ go-to option for years—there’s a good chance your parents have driven a Civic—and Honda has maintained the Civic as one of the most efficient, affordable, and well-equipped vehicles in its class to this day.

But the compact class is one of the largest in the auto world, and competition is rampant. So, how does the Civic stand up to a competitor like the 2015 Toyota Corolla?

Honda Builds a Better Engine

The 2015 Honda Civic LX Sedan with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 39 mpg on the highway,* and yet it manages to offer up 143 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque. We know that power output doesn’t really matter to drivers looking for a small car with such fuel efficiency, but when you see such an efficient engine that kicks out more horsepower than the competition, that’s a sign of superior engineering all around.

On the other hand, Toyota’s car only manages 37 highway mpg on top of 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. No matter which way you slice it, those are inferior numbers.

Features Define the Civic

Many drivers also expect entry-level small cars to be stripped down when it comes to features, but not with a Honda. All entry-level 2015 Civic LX models come standard with:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
  • Rearview camera
  • Touchscreen infotainment system
  • Cruise Control
  • Multi-function remote
  • Stereo anti-theft

Most of these are unavailable or require an upgrade to a higher trim on the Corolla; Toyota even wants you to pay extra for floor mats?
