Milwaukee, Glendale, and Mequon drivers who are looking for a trusted and reliable sedan are likely to whittle down the list to just two fan favorites: the 2016 Honda Civic and the 2016 Toyota Corolla. While both sedans offer comfort and efficiency, the Civic offers features that are fun, powerful, and safe.

Power and Performance

Thanks to the powerful efficiency of modern engines, both the Civic and the Corolla can keep up in the fast lane, but drivers will find that the Honda has a little bit more to offer in terms of engine options. The Toyota offers two efficient but sluggish engine options, a 1.8L I-4 that provides 132 horsepower, or a 1.8L ECO I-4 that manages 140 horsepower. These engines can be paired with a continually variable automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission. By comparison, the Honda offers:

  • A 2.0L I-4 engine that cranks out a peppy 158 horsepower

  • A turbocharged 1.5L I-4 engine that spits out a zippy 174 horsepower

  • Continuously variable automatic transmission, or a 6-speed manual transmission available on the LX

Fun and Convenience

At first gland, both the 2016 Honda Civic and the 2016 Toyota Corolla have a lot to offer: standard power locks and doors, LED daytime running lights, Bluetooth and USB-enabled sound systems, and more. Every Honda Civic offers a rear backup camera, while the Toyota Corolla skips out on this feature for the base model. Both vehicles offer extra lighting in the form of sunroofs or moonroofs, but only the Honda offers the high-tech fun of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto capability. For the driver who wants to stay connected no matter the destination, smartphone integration will simply be more seamless on the Honda.


The Honda Sensing safety system, including several high-tech accident prevention technologies, is available on all models, and is standard on the Touring trim. You won’t find many of these features on any Corolla trim, which can make a big difference when you need an extra set of eyes on the road. Honda safety tech features include options like:

  • LaneWatch blind spot camera, which monitors for and alerts you to potential hazards in your blind spot.

  • Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, which detects the rapid approach of objects in front of you and begins braking to improve your response time.

  • Lane-keeping assist system, which notifies you when you drift out of your lane.

  • Adaptive cruise control, which allows you to maintain a designated distance from vehicles in front of you, even through changes in speed.
