If you are in the market for a new compact sedan at an affordable price, you probably have both the 2016 Toyota Corolla and the 2016 Honda Civic on your shopping list. While both of these vehicles are worthy contenders and have some excellent things to offer, the Toyota Corolla comes out on top in a number of important categories.
From safety and standard features to engine performance and total cost of ownership, the 2016 version of the popular Corolla has a number of important benefits Honda and other manufacturers simply cannot match. Here are a few reasons you might want to move the 2016 Toyota Corolla to the top of your new car shopping list.
Improved Handling for Better Safety
Toyota has made a number of important changes to its iconic Corolla sedan, including improvements to the handling of the vehicle and enhancements for better driver and passenger safety. Some of the changes to the Corolla were first introduced last year, but they remain just as valuable as the 2016 models start rolling into dealer showrooms.
Superior Storage Space
Anyone who has ever owned or ridden in a compact car knows that storage space is often at a premium. Toyota has heard those complaints and responded to them in kind, and the newest version of its iconic Corolla sedan features one of the spacious storage areas on the market today.
Specifically the 2016 Toyota Corolla offers one of the biggest and most spacious trunks in its class, with some 13 cubic feet of cargo space. No matter what you have to store, chances are it will fit in the spacious trunk of your new Corolla.
The Honda Civic, on the other hand, has a markedly smaller trunk. If you need space to store your stuff, the 2016 Toyota Corolla clearly comes out on top.
A Sportier Look and Feel
Both the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic try to look sporty, but the 2016 Corolla comes out on top in this category as well. For 2016 the Corolla retains its sleek lines and sporty appearance, but it also has the engine and power train to back it up.
For 2016 the Toyota Corolla includes a powerful engine with plenty of power. That engine comes paired with a smooth yet crisp 6-speed transmission for exceptional responsiveness and driving fun. There is even a sporty paddle shifter that will please even the most demanding driving enthusiast.
If you are in the market for a car that is fun to drive, responsive to your commands and designed for safety from the ground up, you might want to head down to your Royal Palm Toyota and give the newest version of the Corolla a test drive. The Toyota Corolla gets a number of upgrades and enhancements for the 2016 model year – changes that drivers of all ages are sure to appreciate. While the 2016 Honda Civic remains a worthy competitor, the excellent standard features, safety enhancements and other upgrades clearly make the 2016 Toyota Corolla the better choice.
