If you’re in the market for a compact car, the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla are likely contenders. They both offer drivers reliability, longevity, style, and a wealth of modern comforts at an affordable price. Deciding which compact car will best meet the demands of your lifestyle can be hard, so we’re comparing the redesigned 2022 Honda Civic and the 2022 Toyo a to help you decide.
While the Toyota Corolla has been a reliable car to many over the years, the Honda Civic has always met the small sedan feature for feature and often outperformed it. The 2022 Civic isn’t any different. The new model has an improved exterior design and interior cabin as well as upgraded safety and driver assistance features car buyers will appreciate.
Let’s compare the latest upgrades to the Honda Civic with the Toyota brand “old faithful”.
Both small cars are designed to seat five and have always had adequate headspace and legroom in the front and rear seat although the Corolla’s hatchback trim has a backseat that would serve children better. The 2022 Honda Civics’ redesigned interior improves on the ergonomics and seat comfort of earlier models and adds legroom to the rear seats so that adults are comfortable in both the hatchback and the sedan.
The Civic has more cargo space than the Corolla which has a smaller trunk than most other vehicles in the segment. The Civic has a trunk of 14.8 cubic feet or 24.5 cubic feet if you opt for the hatchback and both can extend when the rear seats are lowered.
When it comes to technology, the upgraded Honda Civic surpasses the Corolla in available features. While they both offer the standard Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, and a standard 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the Honda Civic offers a 9-inch upgrade vs the 8-inch available in the Toyota Corolla. The Honda also offers a 12-speaker Bose sound system and a voice recognition system not offered in the Corolla.
The 2022 Honda Civic offers two engine options – a 158-horsepower aspirated four-cylinder or a 180-horsepower turbocharged engine. Both options on the Civic outperform the Corolla’s 139-horsepower 1.8-liter and the 169-horsepowered 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines.
Both compact cars offer drivers forward collision warning, a rearview camera, lane keep assist, lane departure assist, and adaptive cruise control. The Civic adds rain-sensing wipers, rear-seat reminder, road sign recognition, and road departure mitigation completes its more impressive list of driver assistance features.
