The 2016 Honda Civic is here at Capital Region Honda Dealers, but how does it fare against competitors? We want to show you how the 2016 Toyota Corolla horsepower ratings compare against both of the Civic’s new engines so that you can see what each of these small cars is capable of. And if you thought that power wasn’t something to consider for a small car, we have news for you: It matters every time you have to merge or whenever you find yourself running behind on your way to work in the morning.
You Don’t Need to Settle on Your Small Car
Many drivers still think that you have to choose between a car that’s powerful or fuel efficient, but the fact is that automakers who are making innovations in the industry are designing engines that increase in power and efficiency over old models.
Honda just brought their first turbocharged engine to the United States market, and while it clearly bests the 2016 Toyota Corolla horsepower, even the standard Civic engine has better numbers. Take a look:
- The 2016 Toyota Corolla L has a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, earning 36 highway mpg and 27 city mpg.
- The 2016 Civic LX Sedan with CVT has a 2.0L 4-cylinder with 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque, and the continuously variable transmission helps this Civic earn an EPA-estimated 41 highway and 31 city mpg.*
- Upgrading to the 2016 Civic EX-T or higher trim level drops the new 1.5L turbocharged engine under the hood of the sedan, bringing the power up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque and raising the fuel economy a tick up to 42 highway and 31 city mpg.*
