Honda Civic vs Toyota Camry Performance

Honda Civic Performance

When you find yourself traveling around town for work, running errands, and meeting up with friends, you’re going to want a vehicle that’s able to keep up with your commuting needs. Fortunately, both the Civic and Camry allow drivers to get around town with few stops.

Although, comparing the fuel efficiency of the Honda Civic and Toyota Camry, drivers of the Civic will have to make even fewer trips.

  • The Honda Civic sees up to an EPA-estimated 32 city/42 highway MPG.1 Pairing this with the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and Eco Assist™ System, and your fuel efficiency will be top-notch.

  • Should you choose the Toyota Camry, you’ll only have a 29 city/41 highway MPG helping you get around town. With the Camry, you’ll have the optional drive mode feature, which includes and ECO mode, but won’t have the Eco Assist™ System informing you how efficiently you’re driving.

Plus, if you want to improve the efficiency of your Camry, you’ll need to add options, whereas with the Civic, these fuel-efficiency enhancing features come standard.

Comprehensive Safety Features

Honda Civic Safety

To help keep you and your passengers safe and secure while on the road, both vehicles offer you comprehensive safety packages. Both the Honda Sensing® suite and Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) include features like:

  • Forward Collision Warning with Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights

These features work by using strategically mounted technology that constantly monitors your vehicle’s surroundings. This way you’ll feel confident each time you get behind the wheel.

Similarly, both safety systems also have optional blind spot monitoring systems. With the Toyota Camry you’ll receive a colored alert on your side mirror letting you know another vehicle has been detected in your blind spot.

With the Honda Civic, though, this monitoring system was given a major upgrade. The available Honda LaneWatch™ system uses a camera mounted to your side mirror. When you enable your turn signal, a live feed will be displayed on your available 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen display, giving you a clear image of your vehicle’s side.

While both systems help with safer lane changes, only the Honda LaneWatch™ gives a real-time feed for extra safety.
