The 2013 Honda Civic Sedan vs. the 2013 Toyota Corolla

2013 Honda Civic Sedan

2013 Honda Civic Sedan

The 2013 Honda Civic sedan is an excellent choice for Highland drivers who are looking for an exceptional compact sedan, just as it has been for years. Honda knows how to provide a car that’s affordable, fun to drive, and efficient. At Bosak Honda in Highland, we would put the 2013 Civic against any other car in this competitive class. Another vehicle that’s been on the market for a long time is the Toyota Corolla, so lets see how these old adversaries compare for the 2013 model year.

Powertrains and Fuel Economy

While the matchup is close, the 2013 Honda Civic comes out ahead when it comes down to power and fuel economy. The Civic sedan LX gets a 1.8L four-cylinder engine that makes 140 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, which compares favorably to the 132 hp four-cylinder engine in the Corolla. A little extra pickup never hurt anyone, especially when the Civic also gets better gas mileage. With an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/36 mpg highway,* the 2013 Civic LX with manual transmission beats the 2013 Corolla L with manual transmission, which manages only 27 mpg city/34 mpg highway.

Convenience and Safety Features

Both the Corolla and the Civic have an admirable list of safety features. They both get electronic stability and traction control, brake assist, and anti-lock brakes. The 2013 Civic, however, also gets a standard rearview camera, in addition to steering wheel-mounted controls for audio and cruise control — these aren’t standard features on the Corolla.
