2015 Toyota Corolla vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Before Buying a 2015 Toyota Corolla in West Michigan…

The 2015 Toyota Corolla is a popular choice among West Michigan drivers, but are the recent updates to this compact car enough to make it competitive in the modern market? The basic Corolla L, for instance, has features like a height-adjustable driver’s seat, air conditioning, and power accessories, with the only real modern features being Bluetooth connectivity and… well, that’s about it. Toyota does make other features available for drivers who are willing to upgrade the Corolla, but its basic trim level leaves something to be desired, especially considering ow its 36 highway and 27 city mpg ratings stack up against competing models.

One of those competing small cars is Toyota’s longtime rival, the Honda Civic. The 2015 Civic just earned a 2015 Kelley Blue Book KBB.com Small Car Best Buy Award,* too, and the amenities found on Honda’s small car put it on a different level than the Toyota Corolla. Each Honda Civic has the following standard features, starting at the basic LX trim level: Honda’s customizable touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera, and much more. It’s features like these that have helped Honda redefine what should be considered a “standard feature” on a small car. And the 2015 Civic LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 39 mpg and city fuel economy of 30 mpg.**

Take a look at the differences between these two cars below, then see the Civic firsthand at a West Michigan Honda Dealer:
