Get Behind the Wheel of the 2020 Honda Civic in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota

February 11th, 2020 by


If it’s time to buy a new car, then you need to get behind the wheel of the 2020 Honda Civic in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. This powerhouse car has incredible horsepower, safety features, and convenient setting to make each drive amazing, and to prove that it’s the best, we’ve compared it to the 2020 Toyota Corolla in today’s topic. 

Having incredible power is always enticing when it comes to vehicle shopping, but how can you tell which one is faster without getting behind the wheel? While it is fun to test the limits of new cars during a test-drive, not everyone has the time to do so. The next best thing is to research a vehicle’s horsepower and torque, and today we made a little chart to compare the Civic and Corolla:


Horsepower Torque
Civic 2.0 DOHC 4-cylinder 158 HP 138 lbs.-ft.
Civic 1.5 turbo 4-cylinder 174 HP 162 lbs.-ft.
Civic Hatchback Sport/Sport Touring 1.5 turbo 4-cylinder 180 HP 180 lbs.-ft.
Corolla 1.8 DOHC 4-cylinder 139 HP 126 lbs.-ft.
Corolla SE/XSE 2.0 DOHC 4-cylinder 169 HP 151 lbs.-ft.


It’s not easy to gauge how much faster the Civic is than the Corolla by looking at horsepower, so we made another chart to compare speeds:


Civic Corolla
Zero to 60 MPH 6.6 sec 8 sec
Zero to 100 MPH 16.9 sec 22.1 sec
Quarter Mile 15.1 sec 16.3 sec
Speed in 1/4 Mile 95 MPH 87 MPH
Top Speed 125 MPH 118 MPH


The perfect pairing to speed and power is a vehicle’s safety features, and the Civic has more to boast about than the Corolla in this department. While both competitors have standard features like lane departure warning systems, traction control, and rearview cameras, only the Civic has smart airbags. As opposed to regular airbags, the ones found in the Civic can deploy at different levels of force to better protect a variety of passengers, depending on passenger size and vehicle speed. 

Aside from power and safety, the Civic is filled with ergonomic features that you won’t find on the Corolla. When looking at the Touring model, you’ll find standard wipers that are anything but. Being able to adjust their speed automatically and turn on and off will make driving around in nasty weather easier and less inconvenient. The Civic also has an optional automatic dimming feature on the rearview mirror, so when headlights shine on it, the mirror automatically darkens. Neither of these features are available on the Corolla, so the decision is up to you if you want smooth sailing down the highway, or an inconvenient, dulling ride.
