2017 Toyota Corolla vs. 2017 San Marcos Honda Civic

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

If you’ve narrowed down your top sedan vehicles to the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic, you have a tough decision ahead of you. Both these top sedans offer amenities to keep drivers and passengers safe and comfortable on each trip. However, when you compare these two sedans closely, it’s easy to see how one comes out on top.

Toyota Corolla vs. Honda Civic - Safety

Using vehicle speed sensors and seat sensors, smart airbags in the Civic deploy with different levels of force or don’t deploy at all to help better protect passengers of all sizes in different collisions. 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.

Toyota Corolla vs. Honda Civic - Engine and MPG 

The Honda Civic comes with a more powerful engine than then the Toyota Corolla. The Civic 2.0 DOHC 4 cylinder offers 158 HP and 138 lbs.-ft. torque compared to the Corolla’s 132 HP and 128 lbs.-ft. torque. You can get up to 174 HP in the Civic which leaves the Corolla in its dust.

2017 Subaru Outback vs. 2017 Honda CR-V in San Marcos

Posted by Honda of San Marcos on Wed, Mar 29, 2017 @ 06:34 PM

 

Both the 2017 Subaru Outback and Honda CR-V offer drivers a sporty sleek design, ample space, and top-notch technology. Which car offers more features and a better ride? Honda of San Marcos is here to compare these two industry-leading vehicles, and show you just how the Honda CR-V in San Marcos blows away the competition.

2017 Subaru Outback vs. 2017 Honda CR-V: Cargo Capacity & Convenience

Never worry about space to store your gear for weekend adventures again in the CR-V! The Outback just doesn’t compare, and has significantly smaller cargo area at a mere 35.5 cubic feet with the rear seat up, compared to the CR-V’s 39.2 cubic feet. The CR-V also has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat folded than the Outback (75.8 vs. 73.3 cubic feet).

The Honda CR-V also outshines the Outback in terms of convenience. Take advantage of the automatic folding rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The CR-V Touring’s cargo door can also be opened by just kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. This is ideal to make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full. The Outback does not offer a hands-free gesture, forcing you to put your cargo down.

The CR-V generates more power than the Outback. The CR-V’s standard engine produces 9 more horsepower and 6 lbs.-ft. more torque. More power means a faster acceleration. The CR-V can go from 0-60 in 7.6 seconds, 1.5 seconds faster than it’s competition.
