Corolla vs. Civic: Technology

The new Toyota Corolla and the 2020 Civic have similar technology features like the rearview camera, Bluetooth® connectivity, and a USB connection. However, the 2020 Toyota Corolla interior has the edge and does more thanks to these standard features:

  • 6-Speaker Audio System: Enjoy listening to your favorite music with crisp, clear sound.
  • 7-Inch Touchscreen: The Civic Sedan comes standard with a 5-inch display. Inside the Corolla Sedan, you’ll enjoy a clearer view of menus with the 7-inch touchscreen, which allows you to manage your contact lists, playlists, and more.
  • Siri Eyes Free: Using voice commands, Palms drivers can control and access different infotainment features without distraction.

Corolla vs. Civic: Driver Assistance

While they share similar technologies, there is one essential quality that separates them – safety. You have to upgrade to the Honda Civic LX or above to have the optional Honda Sensing, a package of driver assists like lane departure warning. However, the new Toyota Corolla doesn’t require an upgrade to get high-tech safety features. Each Toyota Corolla trim level comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS-P), which includes:

  • Automatic High Beams
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Road Sign Assist
