2019 Toyota Corolla vs 2019 Honda Civic

Proudly Serving Florence, KY

Although crossovers and SUVs are still dominating the automotive market, there's still a wide audience for the family sedan. The Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic have long been mainstays of the segment, and this year is no exception. Read on to learn how the 2019 Toyota Corolla compares to the 2019 Civic.

Safety Gear

The Corolla has a whiplash mitigation system, which uses specially designed seats to protect drivers and front-seat passengers. During rear-end crashes, this system allows the backrest and headrest to move in opposite directions, preventing spinal and neck injuries. Unfortunately, there's no similar system on the Civic.

Both the Corolla and the Honda Civic have passenger and driver front airbags, side impact and front side impact airbags, front safety belt pretensioners, front-wheel drive, ABS, stability and traction control, optional blind spot monitoring, and daytime running lights.

Warranty Coverage

With the 2019 Toyota Corolla, you'll get free scheduled maintenance for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. There's no scheduled maintenance coverage on the Honda Civic, and you'll be pleased to see that there are more Toyota dealers than Honda dealerships. Therefore, servicing a Toyota is easier than servicing a Honda.

Cargo Area

The Corolla has a larger trunk area than the Honda Civic. To allow drivers to use that cargo area to its full potential, the hatchback version has gas strut hinges that don't go inward. Compare that to the Civic, where usable cargo area is limited by an invasive beam hinge. While the hatchback for the Corolla has split folding rear seats are excellent at accommodating bulky cargo, the Civic sedan's single folding seat isn't as flexible.

The 2019 Toyota Corolla and the Civic are both compelling choices in today's crowded market, but based on its cargo capacity, reliability, and warranty coverage, we believe the Corolla is the better buy. Visit us at Kerry Toyota to see how the two models compare.
