2015 Toyota Corolla vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Mid-Missouri Drivers Shopping for a 2015 Toyota Corolla, We Have News…

The 2015 Toyota Corolla is popular in Central Missouri, but can Toyota overcome the history of the Corolla as a cheap car? Maybe. With five different trim levels (four of which have two sub-trims apiece), Toyota has given drivers variety, that’s for sure. But the basic Corolla L is a definitive basic car. Standard amenities are pretty simple, with Bluetooth being the only real highlight among amenities like air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and power accessories. The Corolla keeps up its reputation for efficiency with 36 highway and 27 city mpg, though it doesn’t quite compare to some other leading small cars.

One competitor to the Corolla is the Honda Civic, which just earned a 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award.* Honda includes features on the Civic that leave the Corolla looking like it came straight out of the past, including a customizable touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, a rearview camera, SMS texting capabilities, Pandora internet radio, and more, redefining the very idea of “standard features.” Not only do the features put the Civic ahead of the Corolla, the fuel economy does as well. The 2015 Civic LX with CVT is rated at an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 30 city mpg;* it even overpowers the Corolla at 143 hp to Toyota’s 132 hp.

Mid-Missouri Honda Dealers has the 2015 Honda Civic ready and waiting for you, but maybe you should take one last look at how it compares to the Corolla in our side-by-side comparison.
