Fuel Efficiency

When you’re looking for fewer interruptions while traveling around Texas, you’ll find fuel efficiency plays a big role. After all, if you constantly need to stop to refill your gas tank, you may miss out on making fun family memories.

Thankfully, both the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic offer adventure-approved fuel efficiencies. Still, with one you’ll be traveling much farther than the other. Let’s take a look:

Toyota Corolla vs. Honda Civic Fuel Efficiency




EPA-estimated MPG


30 city/38 highway MPG*

While both sedans have the same standard fuel efficiency, you’ll be able to travel farther in the Toyota Corolla since it has a larger, 13.2-gallon fuel tank. The Honda Civic, on the other hand, only has a 12.39-gallon tank.

Plus, with one of the Toyota Corolla hybrid models, you can travel even farther. When equipped with the hybrid model, your fuel efficiency is upgraded to an EPA-estimated 53 city/52 highway MPG.* The Honda Civic, on the other hand, doesn’t have a hybrid option and its highest fuel efficiency is an EPA-estimated 32 city/42 highway MPG.

Drivers looking to travel with fewer interruptions will get that with the Toyota Corolla.

Toyota Corolla vs Honda Civic Safety

Whether you’re traveling across town or across the state, the most important thing is safety. For that reason, both the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic come standard with safety suites. With Toyota, you’ll get the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 system. With the Civic, you’ll get the Honda Sensing® suite.

Each suite uses intelligent technology to monitor a range around your vehicle and act as a second pair of eyes. Some of the similarities of these suites include:

  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Dynamic cruise control

However, that’s where the similarities end. The Toyota Corolla has additional standard and optional safety features you won’t find with the Civic, like the standard Road Sign Assist system. Using a front-mounted camera, all signs you pass will be monitored and projected onto your dashboard. That way, you’ll always know the speed limit no matter where you are.

Connective Technology

Your commute should be fun, right? That’s why you’ll find connective technology in both models to make even the longest trips more enjoyable. That being said, when comparing the entertainment features of the Toyota Corolla vs. Honda Civic, you’ll see the Corolla has far more features.

For example, your Corolla comes standard with a 7-inch center touch-screen display. With the Civic, this is only available with a vehicle upgrade. Additionally, your Corolla also comes standard with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and Amazon Alexa. These features allow you to bring your digital music, podcasts, and audiobooks with you while on the go.

In the Civic, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are once again only offered with a vehicle upgrade, while Amazon Alexa services aren’t offered at all.
