2014 Honda Civic 800 2At Central Illinois Honda Dealers, we know that there are many reasons why drivers choose the 2014 Honda Civic, and horsepower is certainly one of them.

The Civic has long defied the rules of the small car, and that includes in the power department, besting competition like the 2014 Toyota Corolla with ease.

Let’s take a closer look at what separates these two small cars, and why we think you should make yours a Honda.

The Civic is Better, All Around

What’s the 2014 Honda Civic horsepower rating, then, if it tops the Corolla? Honda’s small car kicks out as much as 143 hp, compared to the Toyota’s 132 hp. That’s a difference you’ll notice every time you try to merge onto the highway.

As if the power weren’t enough, the 2014 Civic’s got a better fuel economy rating too. The Civic LX Sedan with automatic transmission has an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 39 mpg,* compared with the Corolla’s 36 highway mpg.

To round things off, Honda includes a suite of modern features like Bluetooth and a touchscreen infotainment system on the Civic at the entry-level LX trim. Features that you would have to upgrade for on the Corolla.

Higher power, higher fuel economy, and better equipped. What’s not to love about the Civic? Honda even makes it in a slew of different trims and builds to let you get the Civic that fits your needs the best. Don’t just take our word for it, though, spend some time behind the wheel and see the excellence for yourself.
