When shopping for a new sedan in Bloomington, you’re bound to compare the 2020 Toyota Corolla vs. the 2020 Honda Civic. Both models dominate the segment for their impressive balance of technology, safety, and fuel economy, but the Corolla bests the Civic in several key areas. Let’s explore their differences with this informative guide from Sam Leman Toyota Bloomington! 

Corolla vs. Civic: Technology

It’s no surprise that leaders such as the Corolla and Civic bring Normal drivers all the latest technology, such as Bluetooth® connectivity, a USB connection, and a rearview camera. But Toyota takes connectivity and entertainment a few steps further with standard features not available through Honda: 

  • 7-Inch Touchscreen: Whilethe Civic comes standard with a 5-inch display, the Corolla ups the ante with its 7-inch touchscreen for a clearer display of your contact lists, playlists, and more. 
  • Siri Eyes Free: Keep your eyes on the Morton streets with voice-command infotainment. 
  • 6-Speaker Audio System: Enjoy listening to your favorite music with crisp, clear sound throughout the cabin. 

Corolla vs. Civic: Driver Assistance 

One thing Springfield drivers don’t want to sacrifice is safety, and while both the Civic and Corolla receive consistently high safety ratings, Honda’s safety suite—Honda Sensing—does not come standard. You don’t have to upgrade to get Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS-P) though, allowing peace of mind with every Corolla trim level. This suite includes:

  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Road Sign Assist
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection 
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection
  • Automatic High Beams 
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
