There are quite a few different traits you’re probably looking for if you’re shopping for a new small car, but at the end of the day, we think that the 2015 Honda Civic‘s mpg rating is probably one of the most important specs on the compact car. We’re particularly proud of the Civic because it has no trouble taking on competing sedans and leaving them in the dust, as far as mpg is concerned. Let’s see how Honda’s small car stacks up against competition from Chevy, Toyota, and Ford.
Compare the Numbers
While there are many different things that set these cars apart from each other, we thought it best to just cut to the chase and give you the numbers:
The 2015 Honda Civic base LX trim with a continuously-variable transmission produces an EPA-estimated 39 mpg highway, 30 mpg city, and 33 mpg combined.*
- Our first competitor, the Chevy’s 2015 Cruze, falls short of the Civic with 38 highway mpg, 26 city mpg, and 30 mpg combined.
- Then we have the 2015 Toyota Corolla, which comes in at 36 highway mpg, 27 city mpg, and 31 combined mpg.
- Finally, there’s the 2015 Ford Focus, which is rated at 36 mpg highway, 26 mpg city, and 30 mpg combined.
That’s not all that sets the Civic apart, however. Honda has been redefining the idea of “standard features,” making amenities like Bluetooth standard for phone and audio connectivity, giving drivers access to a customizable touchscreen infotainment system (the Honda i-MID), and equipping every new Civic with a standard rearview camera for easier backing up and parking.
Whether you want to look at the features or the fuel economy, we think it’s clear that the Civic has no trouble taking its rightful position at the top of the compact car class. The coupe comes in three different trims and the sedan in four, ensuring that there’s a Civic that fits the needs of practically any of our Detroit Metro drivers.
