As gas prices continue to rise and concerns mount over the impact of our international, domestic, and individual carbon footprint, the things people are looking for in their vehicle have started to change as well. For a few years now consumers have started to look at more fuel-efficient models, but weariness about the heavy initial costs have turned some people back to more traditional powertrains. The 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid has arrived at Community Honda in Orland Park to lay those concerns to rest with first-rate fuel efficiency and performance, a striking redesign, an upgraded interior with more standard equipment than ever, and a price tag that competes with more traditional gas thirsty sedans.

While the Civic Hybrid is a premium option in the hybrid sedan segment, one of its premier competitors is the 2013 Toyota Camry LE Hybrid. Here we’ll take a look at the ins and outs of these ultra-fuel-efficient models to help drivers in Orland Park, Frankfort, and throughout the area determine the best choice available.

Fuel Efficiency

If you’re in the market for a hybrid, chances are a high degree of fuel efficiency is at the top of your list of priorities when you’re searching for your new vehicle. While both the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid and the 2013 Toyota Camry LE Hybrid perform at a high level, the Honda model does beat out the Toyota. The Civic Hybrid has an EPA estimated 44 mpg* in the city and on the highway, while the Camry LE Hybrid gets 43 mpg on the highway but only 39 mpg in the city. For more fuel savings and a smaller environmental impact, the new Honda Civic Hybrid is the way to go.


While drivers will already save money at the tank in the Civic Hybrid, they will also save more money up front. The competitively equipped Civic Hybrid starts at a base MSRP of $24,360**, enough to beat out the Camry LE Hybrid’s $26,140 starting price while also presenting legitimate competition to similarly equipped sedans that don’t offer the Civic Hybrid’s incredible fuel economy.
