The 2013 Honda Civic Sedan vs. The 2013 Toyota Corolla
The Honda Civic has long been one of the top choices in the small sedan segment. At Silko Honda in Raynham we find it easy to recommend the 2013 Honda Civic sedan for its sporty handling, strong fuel economy, and intuitive design. We are more than willing to put the Civic up against anything else in its class, though, so let’s see how it stacks up against another compact: the 2013 Toyota Corolla.
Performance and Efficiency
Anyone shopping for a compact sedan probably makes fuel economy one of their top priorities. That happens to be one place where Honda beats the Corolla handily. When equipped with an automatic transmission, the 2013 Civic LX gets an EPA estimated 28 mpg in the city/39 mpg on the highway/32 mpg combined.* The Corolla only gets 26 mpg in the city/34 mpg on the highway/29 mpg combined. If you’d like to save money on gas in the long run, then the Civic is the easy choice over the Corolla.
Despite its superior fuel economy, the 2013 Honda Civic sedan actually has a more powerful engine than the Corolla. Both get 1.8L four-cylinder engines, but the Honda produces 140 hp while the Toyota only makes 132 hp. That’s a difference you’ll feel when accelerating in these small cars.
Both the Civic and the Corolla come with plenty of great safety features like vehicle stability control, anti-lock brakes, multiple airbags, and more. However, overall, the Civic comes with more high-tech and convenient features standard than the Corolla. Here are some of the things that are simply not available on the Corolla that every Civic gets at no extra price:
- Cruise control
- Rearview camera
- Stereo anti-theft system
- Automatic headlights
The Civic also gets convenient steering wheel-mounted controls for audio and cruise control, floor mats, and a vehicle theft deterrent system. All of those options cost extra on the Corolla. When it comes down to convenience features, the Civic has the Corolla beat overall.
