Shopping for a new car can be quite the experience, and it requires a ton of time and effort to figure out exactly which is one is best for you. Drivers searching for a more fuel efficient option might be interested in a hybrid vehicle. The iconic Toyota Prius definitely delivers when it comes to fuel efficiency, but how does it compare to other vehicles on the market? Our team here at Cox Toyota is going to bring it head-to-head with the Honda Civic to show drivers how these two popular models compare.
Although there is no hybrid model for the 2016 Honda Civic, we’re going to show drivers how the regular gas model compares to the 2016 Toyota Prius. In order to keep the comparison even, we’re focusing on the base models for both vehicles. Let’s see what else these vehicles have to offer.
Test drive the 2016 Toyota Prius in Burlington, NC
Both the Prius and the Civic have seating for five passengers, but the Civic has slightly more interior volume overall. There is more legroom for front seat passengers in the Prius, and there is more legroom for rear seat passengers in the Civic. One way the Prius stands out from the Civic is with the amount of cargo space it offers. With the hatchback design, drivers will find much more space for extra belongings in the Prius, which makes it more suitable for longer trips and more passengers. There is also a standard rear split folding bench in the Prius that is not available in the base model of the 2016 Honda Civic. This seating option makes it easier to fit large items if needed.
Both the 2016 Toyota Prius Two and the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan LX are equipped with tons of comfort and convenience features for drivers and passengers to enjoy. Each are set with automatic climate control, cruise control, an outside temperature gauge, keyless entry and a backup camera. However, the Prius does come out on top with a list of standard features that are not available on the base model of the 2016 Honda Civic. The following features are standard on the Prius Two and not available on the Civic LX: a CD player, cargo area cover, heated exterior mirrors, illuminated vanity mirrors, the Smart Key System, an MP3 player and voice activated controls.
