2018 Toyota Corolla vs. 2018 Honda Civic

Modern compact cars are leaps and bounds ahead of the previous generations. At the top of the class for another model year are the 2018 Toyota Corolla and 2018 Honda Civic. Both compact sedans are just a year or two removed from pretty radical redesigns. Comparing the newest models of the Toyota Corolla vs. Honda Civic shows just how competitive these two vehicles are. Both models are available in several trims, all of which are well-equipped. However, there are more than a few ways where the 2018 Corolla is able to overtake its long-time rival, the 2018 Civic. Schedule a test drive with the 2018 Toyota Corolla today by making an appointment with a Spitzer Toyota sales professional.   

As the best-selling car in history, the Toyota Corolla comes to the Spitzer Toyota showroom with six trim grades to choose from. The base L model starts owners with a strong list of standard equipment including, LED headlights and daytime running lights as well as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic breaking and lane departure warning. These active safety systems are available with the 2018 Honda Civic, but not until some of the compact sedan's higher and more expensive trim models. Furthermore, the 2018 Civic doesn't appear to offer even basic smartphone integration at the base level, unlike to the new Corolla. The Apple Siri Eyes-Free system is standard with the 2018 Corolla.

2018 Corolla vs. 2018 Civic: Performance and Features

One common thread that ties all of the available independent reviews of the 2018 Toyota Corolla together is the nearly universal praise for the compact sedan's sporty SE trim. Within Toyota nomenclature, SE often denotes a sporty version with some exclusive features, this holds true with the 2018 Corolla. The 2018 Toyota Corolla SE features several unique exterior elements including a black mesh grille, rear spoiler and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for models using the continually variable transmission.

Additionally, the 2018 Corolla gets very high marks for being one of the roomiest models in its class. For instance, rear seat passengers can have more than 40 inches of rear legroom, depending on where the front seats are placed. This is significantly more than what is available with the 2018 Honda Civic.
