2020 Honda Civic vs 2020 Toyota Corolla near Macon GA

Vehicle Overview

Hughes Honda is proud to be the leading Honda dealership serving Macon Milledgeville Warner Robins Georgia. Our team is also thrilled to announce the arrival of the 2020 Honda Civic. The Civic continues to set the bar in its segment and is widely regarded as best in class by consumers and automotive journalists alike. There are no major changes for the 2020 model year, but both the hatchback and Civic Si have received minor refreshes to their front and rear ends. The 2020 Toyota Corolla, however, has been completely redesigned in order to be more competitive in the segment. With that in mind, let us see how these nameplates stack up in our 2020 Honda Civic vs 2020 Toyota Corolla comparison.

Trim Levels - Honda Civic near Macon GA

Honda offers the Civic in five trim levels. The base LX has arguably the best standard equipment package in the class, and the Sport improves on it with popular amenities, such as a larger touchscreen and integrated support for Apple and Android devices. The EX features a turbocharged engine and adds numerous luxuries. The EX-L is defined by its leather upholstery. The Touring has all of that plus integrated navigation and heated seats. The Si also builds on the EX-L but is performance-oriented. The 2020 Toyota Corolla is available in five trims, and there really is no EX, Touring or Si equivalent. The base L is comparable to the LX. The LE and SE are comparable to the Sport with the SE being more sport-oriented. The XLE and XSE are equipped similar to the EX-L but based off the LE and SE, respectively.

Both models feature an advanced infotainment system and driver assistance suite as standard equipment. The base Corolla package includes a 7-inch touchscreen, USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Apple and Android integration.
