When looking at the safety features these two competitors possess, it’s easy to say that the Civic has an advantage in this department. Aside from having standard airbags, the Civic goes above and beyond with smart airbags. These safety devices can use vehicle speed and seat sensors to determine the appropriate amount of force needed when the airbags deploy. Everyone is different, and the amount of force to protect a large adult is different than that of a small teenager, so why would you choose a vehicle that always deploys its airbags at full force? The Civic’s side airbags will even shut off entirely if it detects a child leaning against the door; the Corolla can’t do that. Reliability also means more in the Honda Civic, as it has a powerful 500-amp battery as opposed to the Corollas 295-amp. This means the Civic can handle large electrical loads and be more reliable to start during all conditions.
There’s more to a vehicle’s comfortability than plush seating and leather detailing. If you want a truly enjoyable ride, then you need to look into how the car is constructed. With the Civic, its handling and suspension capabilities speak for themselves with drift compensation steering. This feature automatically adjusts for unstable road conditions so you stay on the straight and narrow effortlessly, which is not something the Corolla can do. When looking at the chassis, you’ll be surprised to learn that the Civic is 4.4 inches shorter than the Corolla, making parking and handling easier without impeding passenger space. With 9.2 more cubic feet of volume, you and your passengers in the Civic won’t feel cramped or uncomfortable either. So it’s a win-win situation here.
