Toyota Corolla vs. Honda Civic : Which Car Is The Better Buy?

The Toyota Corolla is the best-selling automotive nameplate in the world. That alone is proof positive that it’s pretty hard to beat. With the complete redesign just out, marking the inauguration of its 11th generation, the 2014 Toyota Corolla amps up the style, flavor, interior volume, fuel efficiency, powerful performance, and technology features; Well, that makes just about everything. Can the competition hold a candle to the expressive, well-equipped all-new Corolla?  At Toyota of McDonough we put the 2014 Toyota Corolla head to head with the Honda Civic to find out.

The 2014 Corolla’s exterior exudes confidence. With a wider stance, athletic body, and imposing presence, it’s certainly a head turner. The Corolla’s fun pop of personality continues in to the refined interior. The Corolla’s contemporary interior design and revised dimensions provide for a greater amount of cargo capacity and passenger volume than the Civic.

The 2013 Civic can’t say the same. Though it was redesigned in 2012, the Civic’s bland and boring interior missed the mark. Honda attempted to make up for this with the 2013 refresh, which gave drivers a slightly higher quality interior and increased standard features list, with a rearview camera, USB port, Pandora compatibility, and Bluetooth connectivity. Is that enough to turn the Civic around?

The 2014 Corolla is built for the modern lifestyle. It gives drivers the best options available, with the Entune infotainment system in the Driver Convenience package, which is offered with Plus and Premium sub-trims. With a premium audio system, 6.1-inch touchscreen display, a navigation system, a USB 2.0 port and AppSuite technology which provides access to a myriad of applications and services; Corolla drivers have everything they could ever need at their fingertips. To match this technology, Civic owners would end up spending over $1,000 more than Corolla drivers for access to a less sophisticated system. What’s more, the least expensive, base Civic LX model is still more expensive than the similarly equipped Corolla LE, which is one step up from the base L trim.



The superior choice is pretty clear; The 2014 Corolla simply does it best. Check out the 2014 Corolla for yourself at Toyota of McDonough today!
