DAYTON, Ohio, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- With so many vehicles saturating the automotive market, it can be difficult for consumers to determine which vehicle best suits their needs. One of the most common methods of narrowing down the options is to look exclusively at one of the automotive segments. For example, consumers looking for an extremely efficient car at an affordable price are likely to limit their choices to the vehicles in the compact car segment.
Even when shopping in a particular segment, however, choosing a vehicle can be difficult as many offer similar capabilities. To make it easier for consumers to determine which of the vehicles in the compact segment is the most capable, Matt Castrucci Honda has added a brand-new comparison to their website which takes an in-depth look at the 2014 Honda Civic vs 2014 Toyota Corolla, two of the best-selling compact cars currently available.
For the last couple of years, the Toyota Corolla has found itself at the top of the compact car segment, but that changed last year when the Corolla was dethroned by the Honda Civic. The change is likely due to the fact that the Honda Civic was completely redesigned for the 2013 model year, which allowed it to out-perform the Corolla in the capabilities that matter most to buyers in the market for a compact car.
For one, the 2014 Honda Civic is more fuel efficient than the Corolla. The Civic is capable of traveling up to 39 mpg on the highway while the Corolla is only able to reach 36 mpg. Despite the added efficiency, the Civic is still more powerful than the Corolla by a difference of nearly 10 horsepower. The four-cylinder engine of the Civic is able to produce an output of 143 horsepower, making it one of the faster compact cars currently available.
Consumers are also sure to appreciate that the 2014 Honda Civic received the coveted Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ rating. The compact car performed extremely well in all five IIHS tests, including the new, rigorous small overlap front test, allowing it to earn the rating. The Corolla on the other hand, did not perform well in all five tests and was not able to achieve the same rating.
To view the complete model comparison, consumers are encouraged to visit the Matt Castrucci Honda website at www.mattcastruccihonda.com. The dealership is also conducting a series of in-brand comparisons on their informative blog. Questions about the comparisons or about the services provided by the dealership can be directed to the Matt Castrucci Honda sales staff, which can be reached through the website, or by phone at 855-699-4147.
