Drivers shopping for an economical new car, one that's both affordable and fuel-efficient, will likely consider popular compact cars like the 2020 Toyota Corolla and 2020 Honda Civic. These models are available in sedan and hatchback body styles and offer similar pricing and characteristics, but there are still plenty of ways in which they differ.
Let the team here at Sun Toyota in Holiday, FL, go over some of the differences between Toyota's new Corolla and the Honda Civic. After reviewing your options, remember that you can visit our dealership near Tampa for a closer look at the 2020 Corolla lineup and take one out for a test drive.
Safety & Driver Aids
For the 2020 model year, both the Toyota Corolla and Honda's Civic come standard with advanced driver-assistance and safety technologies. The difference here is that one of these sedans provides a more comprehensive safety suite, and that's the Corolla. The new Corolla comes with the next-generation Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 system that includes:
- -Updated Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- -Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
- -Automatic High Beams
- -Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- -Lane Tracing Assist
- -Road Sign Assist
In contrast, the 2020 Honda Civic boasts just four driver aids in its safety suite, including a pre-collision system, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and a Road Departure Mitigation System. While both of these affordable compact cars add peace of mind to your drive with modern safety tech, it's clear that Toyota's 2020 Corolla provides a more thorough package of driver-assist systems to inspire on-road confidence!
