Key Advantages: 2017 Corolla LE - vs - 2017 Civic LX (CVT)
- Toyota Safety Sense P is standard on all 2017 Corolla models, while a similar package (Honda Sensing) costs an additional $1,000 and does not include Automatic High Beams.
- Corolla features a driver knee airbags and passenger seat cushion airbag for a total of eight airbags, versus six for Civic.
- At $18,935, Corolla LE boasts a lower MSRP than a Civic LX equipped with a CVT, which comes in at $19,540
- Corolla LE is equipped with a 6.1-inch touchscreen and 6 speakers, while Civic LX has a 5.0-inch, non-touch display and 4 speakers.
- Corolla LE can be equipped with Entune Audio Plus, which offers a connected navigation app; Civic LX has no available navigation functionality.
The 2017 Honda Civic may have a lot to offer, but it's no match for the Corolla when it comes to safety features and value. With Coroll's Toyota Safety Sense P safety and driver assistance package coming standard on all models, it outshines Civic LX and its similar Honda Sensing package, which is only available as a $1,000 add-on. Corolla comes standard with many advanced features both inside and out, like the touchscreen Entune Audio system and full-LED headlights, while Civic LX features a non-touch audio display and traditional halogen headlamps (with LED daytime running lights). Add to this Corolla's eight airbags, complimentary ToyotaCare service plan and excellent depreciation and ownership costs, and it quickly becomes clear which is the value leader.
