Improved comfort and refinement on the road

This point requires you to head out on the road in the 2023 Honda Civic. There you will discover a very impressive compact sedan that delivers a perfect balance of comfort, agility, and handling. The Civic stands out from the Corolla because of this balance and its ability to meet a variety of needs by the way it behaves on the road. The Civic delivers a quieter interior and a more compliant suspension while also delivering quicker accelerations from 0 to 100 km/h. Both the Civic and the Corolla deliver similar levels of performance on paper, but on the road you quickly and immediately notice the 158 hp you have under your right foot in most Civic versions.
