2017 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2017 Toyota 86
All five – six, really – of the tenth-generation Honda Civic lineup has now been unveiled, as the Civic Si Prototype made its debut at the 2016 LA Auto Show. But we want to make sure you don’t forget about one of the original Civic X’s to be revealed, the Civic Coupe. We thought we’d remind you of just how great it is by pitting it against one of its biggest new rivals, comparing the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2017 Toyota 86. The Toyota 86 is the sports car formerly known as the Scion FR-S, and it is hitting the market running.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe
But just how big of an advantage does it really have over the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe? That’s what we aim to find out with the table above, which depicts some of the most important specifications outside of performance in sporty vehicles like these. In terms of power and performance, the 86 does have a slight advantage not depicted here, but it’s not by much.
However, the Honda Civic Coupe’s non-performance advantages far outweigh the Toyota 86’s performance enhancements in our opinion. For instance, the Honda Civic Coupe utilizes 2.8 litres less fuel every 100 kilometres through city streets, and 2.4 l/100km less on the highway. That will translate to a ton of savings at the gas pump over time compared to the Toyota 86. So this comparison kind of comes down to would you rather save money or drive faster?
Or at least, it would, were it not for the Civic Coupe’s other advantages in space. A sports car might not need as much cargo space as a full-size crossover, but the bigger the trunk the better even still. The Civic Coupe offers an extra 5.2 cubic feet of space in the trunk, and an extra 19.7 cu. ft. of space in the cabin.
So, if you prefer better fuel economy and more space to a bit more power, then be sure to schedule a test drive behind the wheel of the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe right here on our website.
