The 2017 Toyota Corolla continues the over 50-year legacy of America’s number one sedan, promising comfort, reliability, and performance to drivers in Marietta and near the Smyrna and Vinings areas. Take a look at this side-by-side comparison with the 2017 Honda Civic, and see for yourself how well-rounded the Corolla is when you give it a test drive at Marietta Toyota.


Featuring a 1.8L 16-valve 4-cylinder DOHC engine, the new Toyota Corolla offers drivers a comfortable and casual 140 horsepower. And with 126 lb-ft of available torque, the Corolla is robust enough to handle any road with equal energy. This makes the Corolla exceptionally versatile — it’s ideal for drivers of every style, preference, or experience level. Its front wheel drive train helps you feel confident when driving the Corolla, and Marietta drivers will be sure to appreciate the savings they enjoy with the EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway of the Corolla.

The 2017 Honda Civic comes with a a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine that generates 158 horsepower. However, with its additional weight — 100 pounds at the very least depending on the trim level — that advantage doesn’t translate into a more powerful ride. The Civic does feature an identical wheelbase to the Corolla, which means that they both offer exceptional turning, but only the Corolla comes equipped with a torsion beam rear suspension. This gives it a more assured ride, and drivers will simply feel more confident behind the wheel of the Corolla.


Now let’s take a look at the features available on both vehicles. We’ll start by seeing what the 2017 Corolla has to offer Smyrna drivers:

  • Premium-fabric trimmed seats

  • Heated seats

  • 6-speaker premium audio system

  • Integrated navigation

  • Cloth seats

  • Heated front seats available on premium packages

  • 4-speaker audio system

  • Honda satellite-linked navigation available on premium models

  • USB audio interface
