Who Wins on Fuel Economy, the 2015 Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic?

2015 civicIf you’ve been looking at the 2015 Toyota Corolla for its fuel economy, we can understand, but we think that once you see the 2015 Honda Civic Sedan at a West Michigan Honda Dealer near you, you’ll see that not only does it outclass the Corolla in fuel economy, it also goes above and beyond in features. Let’s take a closer look.

The Civic is a Fuel Efficient Small Car

Under the hood of every 2015 Honda Civic is a 1.8L four-cylinder engine capable of 143 hp, and in addition to the power, the Civic Sedan with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 39 highway mpg.* That’s impressive for practically any vehicle, so we don’t begrudge the Corolla for coming in second on efficiency with just 36 highway mpg out of their 132-hp engine.

Yet again, Honda keeps maintaining their reputation for fuel efficient and practical compact cars.

Honda Sets the Standard on Features

As far as amenities are concerned, Honda has been leading the charge to redefine the idea of just what should be considered “standard,” with entry-level LX trims of the Civic featuring amenities like Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, Honda’s i-MID infotainment system, steering wheel-mounted controls, a built-in rearview camera system, and more.

We don’t want you to get the wrong idea abut Toyota’s sedan—of course they make features like these available across their lineup—but if you want to put it on par with the entry-level Civic, well, you’d have to upgrade the Corolla. You see, Toyota’s standard features package doesn’t even include floor mats or cruise control.
