Compare the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan

The Honda Civic Sedan is one of the best cars in its class, beating out its competitors in every category, from performance to efficiency to technology. We’ve put together a side-by-side comparison of the Civic Sedan and two of the biggest cars in its class, the Toyota Corolla and Chevy Cruze.

The Civic Sedan is the clear winner in terms of performance, with 158 hp compared to the Cruze’s 153 hp and the Corolla’s 132 hp. Despite the boost in performance, the Civic is also the most efficient of the three at 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway, compared to the Cruze’s 30 mpg city and the Corolla’s 28 mpg city.

The Honda is the most spacious and lightweight of the three, which accounts for its superior fuel economy and performance. The most comfortable in the running, the Civic is the best family car in terms of interior space. And with a slightly shorter length than the competitors, you get better maneuverability without sacrificing legroom.

Take a closer look at a breakdown between the competition in the table below.

The all-new 2017 Honda Civic has been impressing everyone. See what automotive journalists and professionals have been saying in their reviews:
"'A big part of the 2017 Honda Civic's winning formula is the way it combines practicality, efficiency and everyday comfort with dashes of sportiness. Like a vein of caramel running through an already-delicious ice cream, the 2017 Civic adeptly blends dollops of zeal with overall suppleness."
-- Kelley Blue Book
"Like the best cars, the Civics available for early test drives feel big when you're in them, but drive like small, sporty vehicles"
-- The Detroit Free Press
"The cabin itself is well crafted, with a marked improvement in materials quality. In Touring trim, the interior rivals that of the Accord or even some entry-level Acuras."
-- Edmunds
"This latest-generation Civic is longer than the previous model, and it now boasts some of the best interior volume among compact cars, an interior enveloped in premium materials and top-notch plastics."
-- Kelley Blue Book
"Wind and road noise levels are really low. … In fact, in every scenario but the hard-charging canyon carving, I found the interior to be astonishingly quiet for a $20,000-something car. Hell it's astonishingly quiet for a $40,000 car."
