2017 Toyota Corolla vs Honda Civic

The 2017 Toyota Corolla vs. the 2017 Honda Civic

When shopping for your next sedan in Fairfax, two of your top choices are probably the 2017 Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic. These vehicles are pretty similar and both have a great level of comfort and style, but you’ve got to choose just one! Ourisman Fairfax Toyota is here to help you make the better choice. Keep reading to learn about some ways these vehicles are different, and to see which one you should drive away in.

Unique Features

A great thing about the 2017 Toyota Corolla is all of the useful features that come standard on it. Here are just a few of them:

  • Multi-LED headlights
  • Push button start
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • 7-inch touch-screen display
  • Siri® Eyes Free
  • Backup camera
  • Lane Departure Alert and Steering Assist

When it comes to the Honda Civic, you can get some great features too, but most don’t come standard on the lowest trim level. Some features, like Siri® Eyes Free and the touch-screen display, aren’t available at all. If you choose the Toyota Corolla, you can be sure that you’re getting amazing features without having to spend more money.

The 2017 Toyota Corolla has a starting price of $18,500. The Honda Civic comes in at $18,740. While this may not seem like a huge difference, when you keep going up in trim levels the difference starts to increase. The Corolla XSE, the highest trim level, starts out at $22,680, while the Honda Civic Touring starts at $26,600. You’re already getting many more features even at the lowest level when you go with the Corolla, so it only makes sense that if you’re going to spend more money, spend it on the 2017 Toyota Corolla. Plus, you can always give your vehicle an upgrade with some accessories or unique customizations with that extra cash.

Passenger Space

Many of us probably know the feeling when you’re forced to sit in the back row of a vehicle. It’s usually never a comfortable spot in sedans, and if you’re going on a long trip it makes it even worse! That isn’t the case with the Toyota Corolla. The Corolla offers more rear passenger legroom than the Honda Civic—41.4 inches versus 37.4. Those four inches make a big difference, and you’ll have even more space with the 60/40 split seats in case you’d like more room for your gear instead.
