How does the Honda Civic Sedan compare to the Toyota competition?
Performance and efficiency are often a tradeoff. Typically the more power you have under the hood the worse off your mpg numbers are, but apparently that doesn’t apply to this comparison even when both models are equipped with a continuously variable transmission. According to EPA estimates, the Civic Sedan LX gets 3 more mpg in the city and 4 more mpg out on the highway.*
The Civic Sedan LX manages to provide that extra mpg while also generating 26 more horsepower than the Toyota Corolla L. The base model Honda Civic Sedan also gives you the option between a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT. This way you can select a transmission that suits your driving style.
The Honda Civic Sedan LX also comes with many standard features that are either not available or cost extra with the Toyota Corolla L. Automatic climate control is one of them, but the Honda also comes with remote keyless entry, tailgate power lock/unlock, floor mats, and disc brakes all the way around. These are standard features that are simply not present on the Toyota Corolla L.
