With all of the exciting new models and variations, some might forget what they all stem from – the Honda Civic Sedan. As it was the first of the tenth-generation Civic models to be introduced, it hasn’t had quite as much press lately. But the Civic Sedan is still an excellent model, and one of our favorite 4-door sedans on the market. We thought we’d see how it measures up to arguably its biggest competitor, by comparing the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2017 Toyota Corolla.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan
The table up above looks at four of the most important aspects of sedans like these, so we thought we’d analyze each row to give you a better idea of how the two vehicles compare to one another. Unfortunately for Toyota fans, the Civic Sedan happens to have the advantage in all four. The first row looks at horsepower, which is a good representation of how enjoyable a vehicle will be each time you slide behind the wheel. In this case, the Civic Sedan offers an extra 26 horsepower, which is a pretty sizeable advantage. Plus, there’s an option to upgrade to a more powerful engine in the Civic Sedan, increasing its horsepower even more.
The second row moves onto fuel efficiency, which is one of the most important specifications in any vehicle regardless of its segment. The Civic Sedan achieves 6.6 litres per 100 kilometres driven across both highways and city streets. Not only is that a pretty good number for a non-hybrid vehicle, but it’s also 0.8 l/100km better than the Corolla. Then we turn to space, which might not be as important in a sedan as it is in say a hatchback or crossover, but is still a nice advantage to have.
In terms of trunk space, the Civic Sedan offers an extra 2.1 cubic feet to fill with groceries or luggage or whatever you might need to bring along. The cabin is more spacious than the Corolla as well, offering 2.4 cu. ft. more. If all of these advantages add up to a compact sedan that you might be interested in, be sure to schedule a test drive right here on our website.
