Why Are Competitors Like Toyota Corolla No Match for the New Honda Civic?

Both are top-selling cars in the compact segment. Each has a sterling reputation for longevity -- spanning decades, to be exact. Kelley Blue Book calls Honda Civic, on the one hand, the "spacious, reliable, fun-to-drive segment benchmark." But, the auto research and value experts add, Toyota Corolla is also a "sensible, comfortable, reliable sedan." However, at the end of the day, it was "quality, sportiness, efficiency, and a wide array of tech and safety features" in Civic that made it the authority's choice among small cars. So, how did the latest Civic make the grade?

It was plain to see the plenty of advantages our compact sedan had over Camry. For KBB, they included, for one, the driving "fun factor." Moreover, Civic offers more body styles to choose from -- a space-efficient coupe, roomier sedan, and a versatile hatchback. Third, the interior the reviewer found more refined and definitely more tech-forward. But we at Honda of Jonesboro can add a few more specifics on where Civic pulls ahead of Corolla, too. It's more powerful horsepower-wise, it offers better torque, it's more excitingly hands-on when it comes to gear changes, it has better passenger space where it counts, and there's more room for cargo in a larger trunk. Plus, a hit with the mobile lifestyle, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, making it easy to connect and access your smartphone's features during the ride.
