Vehicle Comparisons:
2018 Toyota Corolla vs 2018 Honda Civic

When taking a drive in Gallatin, Nashville or Madison in a compact sedan, you’ll be inside a vehicle that provides performance on which you can depend and modern features that make road trips fun. While shopping for your next compact sedan, the two models that you should carefully consider are the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic.

The Corolla and the Civic are two of the leaders in the compact sedan class, and both of these models are overflowing with features that can’t be missed. Read this comparison of the 2018 Toyota Corolla and the 2018 Honda Civic that examines some of the best features of these compact sedans.

Fuel Efficiency

Because gas prices are constantly fluctuating, you need to drive a vehicle that provides reliable fuel economy. To help you decide whether you should pick the Corolla or the Civic, you need to carefully consider the fuel ratings offered by each of these sedans.

Both of these compact sedans offer a top EPA-estimated highway efficiency rating of 40 MPG. However, if you want the best city fuel efficiency possible, you need to choose the Toyota Corolla, which offers a top EPA-estimated fuel rating of 30 MPG, better than the 28 MPG city rating offered by the Honda Civic.

Sport Performance Options

Generally, compact sedans aren’t known for their performance features. However, if you drive either the 2018 Toyota Corolla or the 2018 Honda Civic, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of performance options that will boost your enjoyment when you take your car for a drive.

For example, the Civic allows you to choose a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that offers some of the smoothest gear transmissions in the compact sedan. If you’re a driver who prefers a racetrack-like experience, however, the better vehicle is the Corolla, which offers available performance features such as paddle shifters, a sport gauge cluster and a Sport mode that makes your ride more exciting.

Safety Features

Before you spend your hard-earned money on your next sedan, you want to make sure you’re getting as many standard features as possible, including those dedicated to safety. While both the Civic and the Corolla feature innovative safety suites, only the Corolla offers standard active safety features on every model.

With the Corolla, safety features such as road departure and collision mitigation are options unless you choose the Touring trim. Whichever 2018 Corolla trim you choose, you’ll receive a standard Toyota Safety Sense technology suite with dependable features such as dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams and a pre-collision system.

If you want a compact sedan that provides great fuel efficiency in the city and on the highway and sport-inspired performance and safety that comes standard, the Toyota Corolla is the vehicle for you.
