Folks from the Yukon know better than anyone that life in Northern Canada requires a dependable and sturdy set of wheels. That’s why so many people from Whitehorse and across the Yukon trust Toyota vehicles for life in the North. When it comes to important features like safety, technology, fuel economy, performance and comfort, Toyotas crush the competition and deliver incredible affordability on top of it all. Don’t just take our word for it - let’s compare one of Whitehorse Toyota's most popular cars, the Toyota Corolla against some of its competitors!
Toyota Corolla Versus Honda Civic
Corolla beats out the Honda Civic in just about every area, from offering LED headlights and brakelights compared to Civic’s dated and inefficient halogen bulbs, to utilizing predictive brake assist technology for added safety on the road. Compared to Civic, Corolla has a gross vehicle weight rating that allows for an extra 90lbs of cargo, which can make all the difference when you’re driving the daily carpool or carrying extra gear for camping or skiing trips in the Yukon mountains. Corolla’s bonus features like a locking glove box and cargo tie-downs add extra convenience, so that you’re ready for anything that comes your way.
Toyota Corolla edges out the Hyundai Elantra in all of the areas mentioned above, while also delivering superior fuel economy. Anyone who has driven throughout the Yukon knows that our highways can stretch on for what feels like forever. If you have a long daily commute in-and-out of Whitehorse, then a sturdy car like Corolla that offers unbeatable fuel economy is a great option. During highway testing, Corolla used 8L of fuel for every 100km, while Elantra used 9.1L every 100km. When you’re commuting 100+ kilometres a day, that savings in fuel adds up quickly! And don’t worry - Corolla had far better fuel economy than Civic too, which offered the poorest efficiency at 9.3L per 100km.
While Corolla still dominates Sentra in just about every category, the most notable comparison with this pairing is the additional space that Corolla offers throughout the cabin. With more cargo space for stashing everything from sports equipment to a stroller, a low body frame designed for easy exit and entry, and a whopping 6-inches more rear legroom, Corolla delivers unparalleled comfort for you and your passengers. Corolla topples both Civic and Elantra when it comes to spaciousness too!
Compared to the competition, Corolla consistently stacks up as the reigning champion! With better lighting, safety systems, fuel economy, spaciousness, performance and so much more, it’s no wonder that more folks from Whitehorse and across the Yukon are choosing the Toyota Corolla as their car of choice. Our knowledgeable staff at Whitehorse Toyota can walk you through all of Corolla’s exciting features, and break down how affordable this value-packed car really is.
