2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs. 2017 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Civic with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Civic, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the Honda Civic have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is much wider than the Honda Civic, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, which is slightly longer than the Honda Civic.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda Civic.

Handling
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has about the same turning radius as the Honda Civic, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has less horsepower than the Honda Civic, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the Honda Civic. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has less cargo capacity than the Honda Civic, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid than that of the Honda Civic.
