When it comes to driver-assistance tech, both the Corolla and the Civic offer impressive features that work constantly to help keep you and your passengers safe. You’ll feel more confident behind the wheel than ever before.
The 2023 Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0, which includes features such as:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

In the realm of safety, the Civic’s standard Honda Sensing® suite of technology offers comparable features. You know you’ll be as safe as possible in either of these smart sedans.
Unique to the 2023 Camry is Proactive Driving Assist, a new feature of the upgraded Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0. This feature uses cameras and sensors to monitor the road. When certain scenarios are observed, this system can apply gentle braking on curves, when approaching a vehicle in front of you, or when a pedestrian or bicyclist is detected.
You deserve to feel comfortable on short drives to the market or long commutes out of town. No matter the length of the drive, the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic have the goods to make every moment worthwhile.
Comfort and convenience are two of the most important features when it comes to the interior of a daily driver. Luckily, the Corolla and the Civic have those covered. Either sedan offers seating for up to five passengers with available heated front seats to keep you cozy.
So, no matter where you venture, you can enjoy plenty of wiggle room and cozy seating.
Both compact sedans come standard with a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), which offers exceptionally smooth shifting capabilities. If you want to take control of gear shifting, the CVT is available with paddle shifters in either vehicle.
When equipped with this transmission, you can experience effortless acceleration from the Corolla and the Civic.
Want to experience the thrill of a high-horsepower engine and the efficiency of a hybrid model? If so, you’ll want to choose the Toyota Corolla. This model grants the ability to satisfy the performance you crave with its various powertrains and impressive fuel economy.
As you travel in the utmost comfort, you’d rather be on the road than standing at a gas pump. For that, you’ll need a fuel-efficient ride. That’s why the Toyota Corolla provides an EPA-estimated 32 city and 41 highway MPG.* Plus, the available hybrid powertrain can offer up to an EPA-estimated 53 city and 46 highway MPG.*
The Honda Civic, on the other hand, isn’t available with a hybrid powertrain. Its standard configuration can only offer up to 30 city and 37 highway MPG.
On top of their fuel-efficient performances, the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic provide multiple engine options. In the Corolla, you can select from one of two engines:
- 2.0L 4-cylinder: 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque
- 1.8L hybrid 4-cylinder: 134 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque
Similarly, the Honda Civic offers two engines: a 4-cylinder engine and a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. However, as mentioned previously, only the Corolla is available with a hybrid powertrain, which helps maximize efficiency.
Which sedan should you choose for your drives around Burlington, Greensboro, and Durham, NC? If driver assistance, comfort, and efficiency are important to you, the Toyota Corolla is clearly the sedan for you. Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it!
