2014 Toyota Prius c vs. 2015 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius c than the Honda Civic. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Prius c and the Honda Civic in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Prius c as you will with the Honda Civic, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Toyota Prius c is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Civic. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Prius c and the Honda Civic have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Prius c is much slimmer than the Honda Civic, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota Prius c, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Civic.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Prius c has much less torque than the Honda Civic, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota Prius c has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Prius c is significantly less powerful than the Honda Civic. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Prius c and the Honda Civic.

Warranty
The Toyota Prius c comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic.
