2017 Honda Civic Hatchback vs 2017 Toyota Corolla iM
The all-new 10th-generation Honda Civic was first introduced in the second half of the 2015 calendar year, with the Sedan and Coupe models being revealed first. But Honda also confirmed the return of a Hatchback model and the debut of the highly-sought-after Civic Type R, and people quickly got excited for those. Now that the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback has arrived here in Edmonton, we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out, and we thought we’d see how it measures up to the new 2017 Toyota Corolla iM.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
One look at the table up above proves that the new 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is quite superior to its long-time rival’s new hatchback model as well, the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM. Starting from the first row, the Civic Hatch delivers 174 horsepower, while the Corolla iM only offers 137 HP. 37 horses might not seem like a lot, but in lightweight vehicles like these it would definitely be noticeable, meaning the Civic Hatchback can deliver a more enjoyable driving experience, if speed and performance are important to you.
Generally, more power – especially that much more power – would mean that the vehicle would give up some fuel efficiency to its competitor. But in this case, the Civic Hatchback also utilizes 0.8 litres less fuel ever 100 kilometres driven. So it not only delivers a more enjoyable experience behind the wheel, but saves you money at the pump to boot. And as the table shows, we’re not done there.
The Civic Hatchback also offers more space, arguably the most important aspect in a hatchback, than its Corolla iM rival as well. With nearly 5 extra cubic feet of space behind the back seat, it offers quite a bit more cargo capacity than the iM. Plus, there’s an extra 11.7 cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in as well.
