Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Toyota 86. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota 86, the Honda Civic may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota 86, 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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Civic is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota 86. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Toyota 86 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is a little wider than the Toyota 86, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Honda Civic, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota 86.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota 86.

Handling
The Honda Civic has about the same turning radius as the Toyota 86, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Toyota 86, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Honda Civic offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota 86, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Civic will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota 86.

Warranty
The Honda Civic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota 86.
