2013 Toyota Corolla vs. 2013 Honda Civic
In the battle of compact sedans there are not many models that are in such a pitched battle like the 2013 Toyota Corolla vs. the 2013 Honda Civic. Both models have been incredibly popular almost since the very day they were released to the public. Each model is very affordable with the advantage going to the Toyota Corolla. The similarities are striking. However, the Toyota Corolla offers one of the smoothest and quietest rides in the compact sedan class. Not to mention the aforementioned modest starting price that is under that of the Honda Civic.
Safety ratings are a popular way to differentiate between cars. Both have received stellar marks from government evaluators in their crash testing sequence. Both have been named as a “Top Safety Pick” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Although the Civic was given the new distinction of “Top Safety Pick+” because it has gone through the IIHS’ new testing method and as of publication the Toyota Corolla has not. The Corolla does come with an impressive set of safety features like a suite of six airbags that all but envelop the cabin as well as the Star Safety System that integrates a whole host of systems like stability and traction control and anti-lock brakes to give drivers confidence that if the worst should happen, they will be protected.
