Looking for your Next Sedan? We Can Help!

When you’re looking for the right vehicle for your needs, it can be daunting to sort through all the information available online. At Toyota of Rock Hill, we’re here to help make your search easier and get you into a vehicle you’ll love for miles to come.

That’s why we’ve compiled this model comparison to show you how the new 2020 Toyota Corolla stacks up against its competitor, the Honda Civic. Find out the key differences between these two sedans here, then come by to test-drive the new Toyota Corolla for yourself at your Rock Hill car dealership.

Striking Looks both Inside and Out

The new 2020 Toyota Corolla has an updated look this year and it’s sure to turn heads wherever you go. The available sporty front fascia and honeycomb grille add a distinct look, and the available 18-inch machined alloy wheels–the largest ever offered for this model–give the Corolla a strong stance on the road. Plus, see and be seen with LED headlights and taillights, standard on every trim level.

While the Honda Civic also offers a sporty look and unique upgrades, such as rear spoiler options and 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights only come standard on the Civic’s highest trim, the Touring.

When you slide into the driver’s seat in each of these two sedans, you’ll find they both offer premium interior options. The 2020 Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic both have available leather-wrapped steering wheels, power sunroofs, heated front seats, and convenient remote keyless entry.

The Honda Civic also offers heated rear outboard seats only in its highest trim level, but the Toyota Corolla includes the available SofTec(R) sport seats with bolsters and fabric inserts that support you in comfort.

Powerfully Efficient. Potently Fun.

Want to add a little spunk to your drive? Take your 2020 Toyota Corolla up a notch with the available 2.0L Dynamic Force Engine and enjoy 169 horsepower. Both sedans offer efficient standard 4-cylinder engines capable of EPA-estimated 30 MPG city and 38 MPG highway.

Honda’s manual transmission and Continuously Variable Transmission lack some of the advanced technology found in the Toyota Corolla, however. If you prefer a manual transmission, the Corolla has an available 6-Speed Intelligent Transmission with close-ratio low gears for quick acceleration and longer high gears for improved fuel economy. Plus, the intelligent rev-matching feature reduces transmission shock when downshifting. For automatic drivers, you’ll love the available Dynamic Shift-CVT, which combines the immediate response of a traditional fixed first gear while giving you the efficiency of a standard CVT.

Safe and Smart

No matter which model you prefer, peace of mind always comes standard. In the new Civic, you’ll find the advanced Honda Sensing® Technologies, which includes features to help you safely change lanes, maintain a safe following distance while using cruise control, and initiates emergency braking to mitigate a potential collision. The 2020 Toyota Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 that includes features to help you detect and avoid collision with pedestrians, alerts you if you sway from your lane or near the road edge, monitors road signs to alert you of speed limits, stop signs, and more.

Staying connected while you travel in and around Rock Hill is simple. While the Honda Civic offers Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto in all trims except for the base trim, the new Toyota Corolla comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa. Take advantage of various apps on the Corolla’s standard 7-inch touchscreen display–the Honda Civic comes standard with a 5-inch LCD display. If your smartphone needs a charge, both sedans come standard with Qi-compatible wireless charging.

Love music? The Toyota Corolla turns up the value with a standard 6-speaker system and an available JBL® plus Clari-Fi® system that includes 9 speakers, subwoofer, and amplifier. The Honda Civic comes standard with a 160-watt 4-speaker system.
