If you’re looking for an efficient small car then you owe it to yourself to try out the new 2013 Honda Civic. This latest version has all of the traits that have made the Civic one of the most popular compact cars for the last forty years: great handling, fuel efficiency, smart design, style, the list just goes on and on. We wouldn’t want you to miss out, so come visit Community Honda, located less than 20 minutes northeast of Frankfort at 8340 W 159th St in Orland Park.

Of course, there are competitors — in fact there seems to be another fuel-efficient sedan on the market every time you turn on the TV. Let’s see how the Civic compares to another popular model: the Toyota Camry

Powertrain and Performance

When shopping for a new car, numbers can make all the difference: they can tell you how much you’re going to spend on gas and how much power you have under the hood. By the numbers the new Honda Civic is a clear winner over the Camry.

  • The Civic produces 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque while the Camry only manages 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.
  • Despite superior power, the base-level Civic LX with automatic transmission has an EPA mileage estimate of 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway.* The Camry is only good for 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.

Safety and Convenience Features

Beyond the numbers you have to consider other important factors, like stars. The Civic gets more stars for safety from the NHTSA and boasts a Top Safety Pick Award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Civic also gets a rearview camera standard to make backing up and parking safer and easier. Also on the Civic but not the Camry is automatic dual zone climate control and cruise control for your comfort and convenience.
