2013 Toyota Corolla vs. 2013 Honda Civic

When the Toyota Corolla was introduced to the American public almost 40 years ago, it became a major contender in the United States’ automotive industry very quickly because of the ongoing oil embargoes and gasoline shortages. In short order it was the bestselling car in the world and had maintained its status for much if not all of its history. With every leap forward in outstanding product design (like the Toyota Corolla available at Toyota of Naperville) it spawns rivals. And the Corolla has known no greater rival than the Honda Civic. At the Toyota of Naperville Blog, we have put together a little primer about the head-to-head comparisons of the 2013 Toyota Corolla vs. the 2013 Honda Civic.

The Honda Civic is undoubtedly a popular car, but it goes stand up well against the 2013 Toyota Corolla.

From a strictly mechanical standpoint comparing the 2013 Toyota Corolla vs. the 2013 Honda Civic is a rather difficult proposition because of the glaring similarities between the two compact sedans. Both vehicles have very similar amounts of available horsepower. And the Environmental Protection Agency fuel-estimates are within a figurative arm’s length apart. Also both vehicles have virtually identical safety scores from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. So what is finally going to separate these two well-built and popular sedans from one another? Well, like many things that have to do with cars, it’s going to come down to the details of the fine print.

Every new Toyota comes with the fantastic ToyotaCar program that offers one of the most complete warranties in the industry. Also because of the fact that price difference between the 2013 Toyota Corolla vs. the 2013 Honda Civic swings heavily back toward the 2013 Corolla, for what you could potentially spend on a base model Civic, you could potentially move up a trim level or two with the Corolla. That means you would have access to some creature comforts like heated mirrors, variable speed windshield wipers and a steering wheel that will have controls for hands free calling with a compatible cell phone and the audio system.
