The 2017 Toyota Corolla vs. the 2017 Honda Civic
The 2017 Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic are both great five-passenger sedans that are top-sellers in their class. When shopping for your next vehicle, you’ll want to know which of these competitors will be the better buy. Here at Ourisman Chantilly Toyota, we know without a doubt that the Toyota Corolla comes out on top. Here are a few reasons why you should drive away in a Toyota Corolla.
The Toyota Corolla is Budget-Friendly
We know our customers at Ourisman Chantilly love getting the most for their money. The Corolla starts at $18,500 while the Honda Civic starts at $18,740. This might not seem like a huge difference, but when looking at things more closely, it is! The Corolla has tons of standard features on its base model that you don’t get with the Honda Civic, such as a touch-screen infotainment system, advanced safety features, Siri Eyes Free, and much more.
The Corolla Has Great Safety Features
The Toyota Corolla has the Toyota Safety Sense™ that we all know and love. Here are some of the features included in this package, plus a few more, all which come standard on the Corolla:
- Pre-Collision System and Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure Alert and Steering Assist
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
- Standard Automatic High Beams
- Backup camera
- Advanced Airbag System
- Tire Pressure Monitor System
- Whiplash-Injury-Lessening seats
Some of the Honda Civic’s safety features include Collision Mitigation and Road Departure Mitigation Systems, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control. All of these are great and very useful when you’re on the road, but to get any of them you’d have to significantly upgrade in trim levels.
The Corolla Has Plenty of Room for Passengers
When you purchase a Toyota Corolla, you’ll get an ample 41.4 inches of rear-seat legroom versus the Honda Civic’s 37.4 inches. The rear seats have a 60/40 split to allow you to perfectly reconfigure things to suit your needs. The Corolla also has amazing cargo space so you’ll never have to limit your hobbies. Plus, you and your passengers will love the Corolla’s sporty and stylish interior with available SofTex®-trimmed seats that are water- and stain-resistant. When you look at all the details, the Honda Civic just can’t match up to the Corolla in this category either.
