2017 Toyota Corolla vs. 2017 San Marcos Honda Civic

Posted by Honda of San Marcos on Sun, Apr 30, 2017 @ 03:40 PM

The Civic’s side airbags will shut off if a child is leaning against the door. The Corolla’s side airbags don’t have smart features and will always deploy full force.

The Civic EX/EX-T/EX-L/Touring has standard HondaLink Assist, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Corolla doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.
