2020 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2020 Toyota Corolla

Serving Nashville, TN

In the compact car market, two vehicles have continued to be popular among drivers for many decades. The Honda Civic’s history began in 1972, and Honda has progressively improved all aspects of this car to ensure its ongoing appeal. The Toyota Corolla has been available since 1966, and it has also benefited from numerous updates over the years. While they have basic similarities, a further review reveals that these two cars are more different than many drivers assume.


The differences between the 2020 Honda Civic Sedan and the new Corolla begin on the exterior. The Civic Sedan has a thin grille that enhances the rounded, modern look of the car’s nose. This grille rolls directly into sharp, multi-elemental headlights. The hood and sides are aerodynamic yet defined, and this creates dramatic appeal.

In comparison, the 2020 Toyota Corolla’s front end is dominated by its downward trending grille, which extends outward into the air intake vents. The arrow-like headlights stand alone. The sharp incline across the hood draws further attention to the grille. For both vehicles, you can select from several trims that have unique exterior design elements and features. There are also several wheel and color options available.


The five available Civic Sedan trims enable drivers to quickly find a new car that has all of the features that they are looking for. Depending on the Civic Sedan trim that you take home, you may appreciate features like a 450-watt premium sound system, a satellite-linked navigation system, smartphone app integration, HomeLink, leather-trimmed seats, a dual-zone climate control system, a power moonroof, and other equipment. The Toyota Corolla for 2020 is offered in eight trims. Equipment that you can expect to find in this car includes premium cloth seats, a climate control feature, a tilting steering wheel, a push-button ignition, and a few other items.


The innovative Honda Sensing features are standard for all Civic Sedan trims for 2020. With this suite in your car, you can appreciate a lane departure warning, a road departure mitigation system, a collision mitigation braking system, a forward collision warning, low-speed follow with adaptive cruise control, a road departure mitigation system and additional items.
