2016 Honda Civic vs 2016 Toyota Corolla
For the 2016 model year, Honda decided not to pull any punches. They released a brand new vehicle in the HRV, and completely overhauled three of their most popular vehicles in the Accord, Pilot and, of course, the Civic. For the past 17 years the Honda Civic has been without a doubt the most popular compact vehicle on the market, so we thought we’d take a closer look at the differences between it and one of its biggest segment rivals, a vehicle that is also available here at Drive Wheaton, by comparing the 2016 Honda Civic vs 2016 Toyota Corolla.
Differences between the 2016 Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla
While we know that both vehicles offer outstanding driving experiences, in our research we could certainly tell why the Civic tends to get more nods than the Corolla. The Honda compact gets at least a slight nod in each of the categories we normally look at, from efficiency to space. We know that specifications don’t mean everything, and that much of the driving experience comes from the features available in the vehicle, which a table like the one above won’t showcase.
If specifications are the only thing that you’re looking at, then your obvious choice will be the 2016 Honda Civic. It utilizes a half-litre less per 100 kilometres on the highway, delivers an extra 26 horsepower, and offers more than 2 extra cubic feet of space both in the cabin and the trunk. But if you don’t mind taking the slight dip in some specs, then this battle will come down to aesthetic and, as we mentioned, the features found within the vehicle.
