2023 Honda Civic vs. 2023 Toyota Camry

Comparison between the 2023 Honda Civic and the 2023 Toyota Camry

1. Exterior Design

The 2023 Honda Civic has always been known for its sleek and modern styling, and the 11th generation car is no exception. With a long, low and wide stance and sporty proportions, the new Civic has an aggressive look compared to the outgoing model. It is also the first time the car has been developed with a full design led by a female designer. The new car has been designed with a commitment to human-focused design which aims to enable new values for the customer through innovative and practical design. Although the styling is aggressive, Honda has also prioritized exceptional visibility with sleek A-pillars and dropping the window line around the front of the car, as well as securing the same front quarter window view as the outgoing model. Honda has also continued with the global sedan design, endowing a sophisticated and universal presence for the compact sedan. The 2023 Toyota Camry has only minor changes to the car's exterior. The base model 18 steel wheels have been changed to a new aerodynamic styled hub cap and the SE model receives new 17 alloy wheels. There have also been changes to some of the colors available for the car. The Camry was, however, updated in 2021 with a new front fascia, redesign of the front grille, and new 17 and 18 wheel designs, so Toyota is still satisfied with the look of the Camry. (Mariano et al., 2023)

1.1. Sleek and modern styling

Moving to the side, this is where the Civic really flexes its newfound premium look. A footwell is carved into the lower part of the doors, and there is a sharp crease running just below the window sills, which goes upwards towards the rear wheel arch. At the rear, the boot lid gets a slight lip spoiler, and the taillights, which are connected by a gloss black strip, are now wider than before and are a combination of brake lights and LEDs. Completing the new look is more of a coupe-like profile thanks to the elongation of the cabin, but perhaps the most impressive part of the body is the under panel. Honda has installed a flat panel under the car to cover and protect the important bits and to smooth the airflow, which is something you'd expect to find on a high-end luxury car. Overall, this is a design of a car of higher class and definitely not an entry-level offering.

The front end of the car, much like the rear, is wider. The grille is surrounded by a body-colored wing that sweeps across the front of the car and meets the edge of the front fenders where it turns upwards. Just below the Honda badge, there are two deep air intakes that are connected by a body-colored center section, which gives the suggestion of a front splitter. The front headlights are now positioned higher and have been made deliberately thin to give an intense look. Honda has continued its philosophy to reduce visual clutter, and the top models get a set of slick-looking 9-spoke alloys finished in shark grey.

The Civic has always been associated with a modern and stylish design, and the 2023 Honda Civic is no different. Upon first sight of the car, you'll notice that it looks low, wide, and it sits on its large wheels perfectly. The wheelbase has been extended by 1.4 inches, and the rear track is an inch wider, both of which contribute to a more athletic stance. The new shape gives the Civic a more premium look, moving it away from looking like an entry-level car. Honda has maintained its clean but sporty look, which has been seen on Civics in the past, and combined it with a bit more aggression to create what is the best-looking Civic yet.

1.2. Eye-catching LED headlights

On the outside, the Toyota Camry has set out to create more sophistication with its new XSE model, which includes a more aggressive front bumper, a small trunk lid spoiler, smoked back taillights, a set of two puffy exhaust tips, and 19-inch black wheels along with the Camry name replaced by the Toyota emblem. On the other hand, the Honda Civic has taken a more traditional approach. With LED lights coming standard on all trims, the new Civic has included an improvement on visibility with the lights that became longer and wider. Right here is where Toyota has taken a better approach at engineering high power lights. An exclusive feature on the XLE model is a set of LED daytime running lights and high power headlights that make turns along with the steering wheel. Going to the lights, it seems Toyota takes this battle with the high power lights along with the LED lights for the Camry. When discussing the Honda Civic, we have to make a mention of the Civic Si, which has rear LED lights along with a set of LED daytime running lights. The Camry and Civic have both taken a different approach to better lighting and having powerful headlights that last longer than traditional bulbs. In the end, Toyota may have passed the Civic by including LED lights in all its models and taking the step further with the XLE model's high power lights. LED lights will be the norm for cars in the future, and this is a good step for both manufacturers. (Levin et al.2020)

1.3. Aerodynamic body shape

The all-new 2023 Honda Civic also puts a large emphasis on the aerodynamics of the vehicle. Engineers conducted extensive testing at the company's advanced aerodynamic research facility in Raymond, Ohio, using a 50 percent scale model in a wind tunnel. The aerodynamic testing facility is also used by some of Honda's performance vehicles such as the Civic Si Coupe, the Civic Type R, and the NSX Supercar. The wind tunnel testing produced a more efficient underbody and reduced aero-drag performance at high speed. The testing has also led to improvements in cooling as the wind tunnel tests identified problems in the cooling systems and the efficiency of heat transfer from the components in the engine bay. The problems were amended with sizing changes to cooling apertures and additional heat transfer between components into the low-pressure high-speed air flowing underneath the car. This is evident by the visual changes to the top grill shape and the hidden air vents next to the fog lights on the new Honda Civic. With the improvements in cooling efficiency, the car has also attained an increase in fuel efficiency, ambient cabin temperature, and performance reliability. High wind noise was also a concern with earlier model Civics. Noise was reduced by detailed testing of the A-pillars and side mirrors to identify airflow characteristics and a reduction of aero noise at high speed. This has led to Honda's quietest compact car interior. A big factor for Joy Retreat customers is the drive to the snow fields during the winter season. Snow driving requires a vehicle with consistent stable handling at low traction conditions. The Civic has improved high-speed stability and reduced aero noise at any speed. The reduced aero noise is also due to the extensive testing of sound performance, which is evident by the decrease in NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) from earlier models. (Ferré Gras, 2023)

The body shape of a car plays a major role in improvements in fuel economy, thus cost effectiveness for the driver. Aerodynamics is a big part of reducing drag forces acting on the car. Reduced air resistance allows the car to accelerate faster – hence changing the dynamics of the car. With less air resistance at high speed, the car will be more stable, reducing the likelihood of 'floating' at the front of the car due to lift. Stable high-speed behavior is also a safety factor. The 2023 Toyota Camry has an impressive coefficient of drag of 0.24Cd. The objective of the car was to create an "athletic and elegant" design. The fine-tuning of the aerodynamic shape has led to improved driving performance, fuel efficiency, and reduction in wind noise.

2. Performance and Engine Options

Honda Civic is equipped with a superior 2.4 litre, 16 valve, DOHC, i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine delivering power of 125kW at 6,200rpm and 200Nm of torque at 6,200 rpm. In contrast, Toyota Camry has a 2.5 litre VVT-i, 16-valve DOHC 4-cylinder engine with an output of 117kW at 5,200rpm and 218Nm at 4,400rpm. Civic gets the edge on power and torque, whilst maintaining competitive fuel economy ratings. Both vehicles have 5-speed automatic transmission options, with the Civic also offering a 5-speed manual transmission. All Camry models continue with an electronically controlled 5-speed automatic, which has Artificial Intelligence shift control and Flex Lock-up control. Step off acceleration with the Camry is also impressive. Transmission options in these vehicles are well geared to the engines in regards to maximizing power and efficiency. Civic provides a spirited drive through its advanced engine technology and improved suspension system. Drive-by-Wire Throttle System provides a more natural and direct drive feel on acceleration, with significantly reduced engine noise. Low friction engine components, high efficiency multi-point fuel injection, and more efficient use of engine heat all contribute to improved fuel economy and reduced emissions. MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension systems have been tuned for improved ride comfort and enhanced collision safety performance. Improved front compliance pivot and increased kingpin inclination improve handling response and linearity. Toyota Camry, while not claiming to be a sports sedan, does provide a smooth and quiet ride. Dual VVT-i has been newly adopted to the 2AZ-FXE engine. Reduced friction, more efficient combustion, and the increased efficiency of the electric system (power assistance) have allowed further fuel economy enhancements. This unique system with vehicle-speed integration provides electric motor power to assist engine output, and also electric motor regeneration for the internal battery, via automatic gears. This results in improved vehicle acceleration. Electric motor-powered engine start (no idle) allows for smooth and quiet starts. Continuing with the success of dynamic and acoustic performance, the newly adopted Active Control Engine Mount (V6 only) reduces engine noise and vibration. With the introduction of a newly developed 6-speed automatic transmission on some models, or 4 or 5-speed automatic transmission on others, Camry has excellent transmission options to maximize engine performance and fuel economy. Both systems provide outstanding performance, fuel economy, and clean emissions. Camry has long been regarded for high quality, reliability, and durability.

2.1. Powerful and efficient engines

Civic and T-Cam have powerful engines, but they are different. While T-Cam has more powerful engines, it still lacks good fuel efficiency. This generation of Civic has a DOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine. The DX, LX, and EX models have SOHC i-VTEC engines that use regular unleaded gasoline, while the GX has an ultra-clean-burning, 113-horsepower engine that qualifies as an AT-PZEV (Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle), and the HX has a VTEC-E engine that is designed for maximum fuel mileage and ultra-low emissions. The DX, LX, and HX models are ULEV (Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle) rated. The RSX shares the same base engine. The 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine in the Civic runs very smoothly while providing great fuel efficiency. It has a 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC valvetrain and a high compression ratio, with 166 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 177 ft-lb torque at 4500 rpm. This provides the car with very good acceleration and overtaking power. It comes with either a 5-speed automatic or manual transmission. An Si model is available in the coupe version of the Civic; it uses a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 170 ft-lb torque at 4300 rpm. Honda Civic's engine options provide both a powerful and fuel-efficient driving experience.

2.2. Smooth and responsive handling

Automotive engineers made several key mechanical changes to the 2023 Civic Si in order to extract more performance from the chassis, while also adding useful technology that is unique to Si. Compared to the standard 2023 Civic, the Si suspension is improved with higher spring rates, firmer damping force, and reactive damper bearings. This setup gives the Si better handling and quicker steering response. New active shocks are employed to better soak up body pitch and roll when cornering, for more precise handling. Larger front brake discs and high-performance brake pads at all four corners improve stopping power to match the Si's additional speed. A front air dam and rear wing spoiler were both wind tunnel tested and provide enhanced aerodynamics at higher speeds. Finally, the 2023 Civic Si model exclusive 18" alloy wheels are wrapped in high-performance 235/40R18 tires. These tires feature a unique sidewall design and were developed alongside the car to achieve optimal performance on the new Si. High-performance driving requires quick and responsive shifting, and the 2023 Civic Si's 6-speed manual transmission has several revisions to improve shift feel. The transmission itself is now a low inertia unit for quicker shifts, and new higher strength gears are paired with a helical type limited-slip differential for improved FWD acceleration out of corners. An all-new gear change mechanism utilizes an active gate system and a weighted shift knob to improve accuracy and shift feel. Finally, a new inching clutch system uses active engine torque control to allow smoother and more precise starting and stopping for the driver at low RPM. These combined upgrades contribute to Si having one of the most enjoyable-to-drive manual transmissions in its class.

2.3. Available hybrid options

The Camry has been historically very successful with its hybrid model, and it is expected only to be improved with the newer generation model. Between the Camry's overall success and the new technology from Honda, this should be an interesting competition.

The Civic's hybrid powertrain has long been criticized for being inconsistent with its real-world fuel economy and its inability to replicate the EPA numbers. Well, Honda is vowing to rectify this situation with the MSD (Multi-Mode Drive) system. The MSD system allows the Civic to run in three different modes dependent upon driving conditions. In this case, one of the modes operates the vehicle's gasoline engine exclusively to recharge the battery, and one mode completely shuts down the engine allowing the electric motor to take over operations. This ultimately should allow the Civic to optimize fuel economy and increase the likelihood of achieving its 50/50 city/highway mpg rating.

The Honda 2023 Civic offers the availability for a hybrid option. Much like the many generations prior to it, consumers can choose the hybrid powertrain on the economy-minded model. The Toyota 2023 Camry, however, is being offered with the hybrid powertrain in every one of its trim levels.

2.4. Advanced safety features

Let us start by telling you about the all new 2023 Honda Civic and its safety. The 2023 Honda Civic comes with the standard Honda Sensing Safety and Driver Assist Technology. The goal of this Honda Sensing suite is to assist and help protect every driver and passenger on the road. This features 7 safety and driver assistive technologies that include Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist. The all new Civic also comes with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. Honda had also made improvements in its airbag technology. The all new Civic comes with a new front airbag technology that is designed to frame the head and lower the acceleration of the head to help reduce the chance of brain injury in frontal collisions. The airbag is intended to utilize a donut-shaped chamber designed to catch and slow the head to reduce rotational violence to the brain. Talk about safety!

3. Interior Features and Comfort

The 2023 Camry boasts a 7-inch touch screen with traditional buttons and knobs, giving off high functionality. All the controls are easy to reach and understand, keeping the drivers' eyes focused on the road. Although the 2016 Civic comes with similar features to the Camry, such as electric parking brake and push button start, it lacks the size of the touch screen in comparison. The higher trim levels in the Civic will feature a 7-inch touch screen, while the lower level trims will have a small and plain color LCD screen. The Camry's touch screen size ranges from 6.1 inches to 7 inches depending on the trims, with a 10-inch color head-up display on the highest trim level. Therefore, with all tech features being equal, the Camry's larger touch screen trumps the Civic's offering and separates the two vehicles in terms of interior technology. As well as a larger touch screen, the 2023 Camry will offer a 10-speaker JBL stereo for the higher trim levels. The JBL stereo is known for its high-quality music production. The highest trim level Camry will also offer a wireless phone charger. This is an optional feature that does not come with the lower trim levels, possibly the only area where the Civic may have an advantage in comparison. Wireless charging is both useful and convenient but still not an essential feature for some car buyers. The Civic has the option for a similar offer, a wireless charger located in the center console, but lacks the availability. Both vehicles offer heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. However, the Camry offers a larger number of heated seats with a total of 4 compared to 2. This contrasts the Civic heating option of only one trim level. Offering a large number of heated seats is a rarity among most vehicles, offering the Camry a unique and appealing interior comfort feature. The Camry and Civic both offer Honda Sensing and Toyota Safety Sense driver assist technologies, but the features may differ slightly. The Camry offers dynamic radar cruise control, an advanced pre-collision system with pedestrian protection, lane departure alert with steering assist, and automatic high beam headlights. High-level trims will also feature a rear cross-traffic alert and a blind spot monitor. All these features come as standard, compared to the Civic where these features are either Honda Sensing package additions or come with higher-level trims. Dynamic radar cruise control does not come with the Civic nor does the steering assist, the rest of the features are the same as the Camry.

3.1. Spacious and comfortable seating

The 2023 Honda Civic offers spacious and comfortable seating compared to the Toyota Camry. The Honda Civic has 94.6 cubic feet of passenger space, which is better than the Toyota Camry's 100.4 cubic feet. The Toyota Camry has lost its edge recently by offering less rear legroom than the outgoing model and less than both the newer Accord and Civic. The Civic offers a number of new standard comfort features at every level. The optimized front seat design includes a new frame structure that stabilizes the back and lumbar support, and utilizes springs and urethane padding to enhance comfort. The LX and Sport trims also apply high-resilience urethane to the seat padding for the first time, while the EX adds leather and the Touring uses an all-new type of seat frame and a combination of spring-and-resilience urethane padding to enhance comfort. These seating upgrades are matched by a quieter and more inviting cabin that significantly reduces NV, particularly among compact segment competitors. The Civic offers best-in-class rear seat bottom angle and heel point height, and for the first time, the rear outboard passengers can recline just like those in front. The new rear seat design places the passengers in a more natural seating posture and provides adequate upper body support. The new rear seat cushions also allow the right and left seat to be interchangeable. The Camry and Civic are very similar in terms of leg, shoulder, and hip room. Both Civics and Camrys have a standard driver's seat with 6-way power adjustment, lumbar back support, and height adjustment. Both models also have reclining front seatbacks to allow easy entry to the rear seats. With the driver's seat in the full back and full up position, the Civic offers more distance between the front seat and the rear seat. From the sitting position, the Civic has more clearance between the front and rear seat headroom. The Camry exceeds in terms of rear headroom and shoulder room, but the Civic has more rear leg and hip room.

3.2. High-quality materials and finishes

The new Camry has an elegant interior design. The combination of wood, satin-metallic accents, and also the contrast stitching is perfectly combined with the leather-trimmed seats, making the Camry look very luxurious. Also, the smartly placed intermittent wipers have their own benefit. They now come with a sensitive sensor to automatically start when it rains and also slow down once the rain stops. The new Camry also offers more space for the driver to move since the scheme of the new Camry's seats is much lower. For the rear seat, there is also an increase of 1.8 inches in legroom and the headroom is also raised a bit and accessible from the increase in door opening.

Overall, buying the new 2023 Toyota Camry and the 2023 Honda Civic has its own benefits. Both offer good things within their price. The Camry is sitting above its class. It offers luxury and comfort of a higher-class car with only a few thousand dollars more expensive. On the other hand, the new Civic also provides a high level of comfort too. But the main issue here is whether to get the base model Camry or the new Civic. Between the two, the Camry would still be a better choice. Take an example of the Camry LE, which is one step up from the base model. Compared to the new Civic, it is only $500 more expensive. And the features that it offers already exceed the new Civic. But if you're going into the higher level, the new Civic is the better choice. With a price that is still cheaper than the Camry, it offers more features than the Camry.

3.3. User-friendly infotainment system

The Camry infotainment options start with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, while higher grades get the 8.0-inch display. SE and XSE trims also feature a 10.0-inch color head-up display that furnishes vital data, such as speed and directions, right into the driver’s line of sight. Entune 3.0 is standard across the board and includes a 6-speaker stereo, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. There is an available upgrade to an 800-watt 9-speaker system with Clari-Fi software that may not impress audiophiles, but the sonic quality is a noticeable upgrade. Options include a JBL sound system. All models feature three USB ports, while top trims get two extra ports on the rear of the center console. JBL setups and built-in navigation are available options, but navigation costs more on top trims where it is standard on all Civics with the 8.0-inch touchscreen. Altering settings can be somewhat cumbersome and, while response time is much improved from previous Toyotas, it still lags behind that of the Hondas. CarPlay worked almost seamlessly in the Camry, save for some minuscule lag time. Overall, the Honda’s infotainment system is marginally superior to the Camry’s, although the latter’s gap has considerably closed. Again, a major deciding factor may be perceived reliability. With respect to the screen freezes and nonresponsive touchscreens that were virtually ubiquitous on previous Toyotas, the Camry system definitely has not carried the best reputation. Honda also possesses one of the best records for reliability in all segments, as demonstrated by countless Consumer Reports rankings and long-term studies.

The Civic’s infotainment system is located high on the center stack and is operated using either a 7.0- or 8.0-inch touchscreen. Volume and tuning are controlled by physical knobs. It generally works well, but the lack of a tuning knob in the 7.0-inch system makes it more convoluted to use. The 8.0-inch system includes a second audio volume knob that we appreciate. Overall, the menus are logically arranged and the system responds quickly to inputs. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio are standard. Navigation is offered only in the 8.0-inch models. The top-of-the-line Touring model includes a 10-speaker audio system that’s a noticeable upgrade from the other versions.

3.4. Advanced driver assistance technologies

Honda Sensing offers collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition. The system will automatically engage the brakes to prevent or mitigate a collision or road departure. All of these functions have been bundled together under the marketing term calling it ongoing adaptive cruise control. Personally, I am not sure why they have done this as it oversimplifies the fact that there is actually a lot packed into this paragraph. Maybe they needed a catchy term to counter Toyota’s Safety Sense.

Starting with the Honda Civic, Honda Sensing is now standard on all trims and for the 2022 model year has been improved with a new camera and radar system. This allows for improvements in both the adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. Adaptive cruise control with low speed follow can maintain a set distance from the car in front all the way to a stop, as well as maintaining it on a freeway with lane centring assist. It is rare to find this function on a vehicle at the Civic’s price point and is often the preserve of luxury vehicles such as Acura, Infinity, and Lexus. The lane keep assist has been a criticism of mine in past Hondas, where most of the time I find myself turning it off. However, the CC/LKA system on this 2022 Civic performed better than anything I have previously tried from Honda and in my opinion the lane centring assist is almost on par with the system found on my 2019 Acura RDX. High praise for this price bracket.

This is becoming an increasingly important area of differentiation between cars. As we make progression towards self-driving cars, the technology that exists to assist the driver is becoming more and more sophisticated and is seen as a sign of future-proofing a vehicle. There is a plethora of systems and the terminology is not consistent between brands, so I will present what I found the Civic and Camry to offer and how they compare.

4. Pricing and Value

The Toyota Camry certainly is not inexpensive, but it is priced at a level suitable for the value it offers. When a vehicle is known for quality and reliability, asking price becomes less of an issue and the Camry is known for both. Test drivers found that there are better alternatives to the Camry if you are concerned with the most car for the money. One critic wrote: "The primary dissuasion from recommending a Camry is that a similarly equipped Toyota Avalon is not much more expensive, but a significantly better car." The Camry has no doubt had its share of record high resale values, but due to recent increases in pricing combined with alternatives to the model, Camry's resale value may not be as high as it once was. Still there is no question that a Camry is money well spent as for many it has provided years of trouble free driving. Heirs might even be driving their grandparent's old Camry because the vehicle is also known for its longevity. A new car is always an investment and nothing says investment like reliability and value. The Camry's strong suit has always been value. Although it might not be right for everyone, what it does it does very well. Long live the Camry.

The new Honda Civic offers its car buyers competitive pricing compared to rivals. Honda wants their vehicle to be priced at a level societies perceive as fair. They want to offer their customers value. Honda wants to offer practicality, durability, safety, and a good long-term investment that offers economical transportation. The Civic offers all these things to its consumers. Honda cars have always had a reputation for being well-built. The Honda Civic is known for its quality, durability, and reliability. The vehicle offers an array of standard features and accessories at a very competitive price that should meet most budgets. Honda Civic continues to be one of the best values in the automotive marketplace. Because of its reputation for quality and reliability, as well as the car's low relative cost, a Honda Civic has always been strong in resale value most of its loss in value.

4.1. Competitive pricing compared to rivals

The starting prices of the Toyota Camry are $22,165 for the 4-door sedan to $25,565 for the XLE 4-cyl. The Honda Civic, on the other hand, starts at $15,010 for the 2-door coupe and goes to around $24,590 for the GX. Now there is really no doubt that the Honda Civic is the clear winner here in terms of pricing. Honda's lineup is praised for its superior blend of style, comfort, and technological content, and the fact that the Civic can offer all of that but remain at a lower price than the base model of the Camry is remarkable. It is also the key to why the Civic is the best-selling compact and the third best-selling car overall in the U.S. The main reason for the cheaper pricing of the Civic is largely due to the fact that the platform has not changed since the 2006 model. This has enabled Honda to spread out the development and tooling costs. Through research, I also found that in October 2018, Honda was offering the Civic on a $209 monthly lease for 36 months with $2499 due at signing, while Toyota was offering the Camry for $199 per month with $2999 due at signing. This makes a lease on a Civic even more enticing and affordable than a Camry and is likely to persuade customers toward the Civic. Although while the Civic does have the upper hand in terms of pricing, the Camry offers a luxurious and upmarket alternative to the near-luxury Avalon with the top-line XSE and XLE versions. This makes the Camry still a desirable choice for customers who are willing to spend a little extra for a more luxurious midsize sedan. The greater quality and features of these higher-end models may still entice some Civic customers to make the switch, especially if they are long-time or previous Camry owners. So although the Civic is cheaper, the wide range of Camry prices could still result in customers of both ends of the pricing scale choosing a Camry over a Civic.

4.2. Excellent resale value

The Camry's expansive appeal in the market Toyota vehicles are recognized for their trusty dependability and higher-than-average resale value, and the 2023 Camry is no exception to this unspoken rule. Despite viewing the vehicle from an aesthetic standpoint, the Camry's residual overall cost is sure to catch the eye of sensible consumers. As noted in the 14th annual Automotive Lease Guide study, the 2023 Camry is expected to have a 2% higher residual value than the previous model. This factor alone provides potential buyers with a smart financial reason for purchasing or leasing a new Camry. Resale value is the projected private party resale value set to be received for a vehicle under average accrued mileage over a 24 to 48 month period. According to Toyota Motor Sales USA, the Camry received a segment leading score of 57.4% residual value after 3 years, in a recent IntelliChoice study. Owner confidence is another benefit of the Camry's higher resale value. Due to the fact that the vehicle maintains a high percentage of its original value, owners can expect to receive more money when trading in for a new vehicle. This money saved can be used to purchase a new Camry or applied towards the purchase of another Toyota vehicle, with the comfort of knowing they received the best overall value for their purchase. Higher resale amount is also influential in easing the consumer's mind when thinking about selling their vehicle in the future – it's nice to know that the vehicle you are buying today will translate to more money in your pocket tomorrow.

4.3. Comprehensive warranty coverage

The Honda Civic and Toyota Camry overlap in some areas, but the Civic definitely has the upper hand in terms of comprehensive warranty coverage. Buyers of a new Civic will have the benefits of a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty (that includes 24-hour roadside assistance), a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a 5-year/unlimited-mile corrosion warranty. This is magnitudes better than Toyota's Camry limited 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. With the Honda warranty, buyers have the luxury of extended protection on all fronts, giving peace of mind throughout the first years of new car ownership. This is something that will definitely factor into the decision between purchasing a new Civic or new Camry. If the new car buyer is the type of person that feels safer fully covering their new car with an extended warranty through the first 5 years, then the Civic is the clear choice. This is a very important issue because many new car buyers purchase a certain vehicle because they want a reliable stress-free commute, in which nothing beats knowing your car is fully covered with warranty and roadside assistance. The Honda Care Service Contract is a valuable tool used in further extending coverage on a Honda vehicle. Honda owners enjoy the high quality of service provided by Honda Care. Honda Care offers a wide range of coverage options for those that like to be prepared for any unexpected repairs in the future. Providing benefits and services that will enhance the owner's satisfaction with their Honda vehicle. Honda Care is transferable and can be prorated, which means that if the owner ever decides to sell the car before the contract ends, he/she can receive a refund on the unused portion from the dealer. This is a great selling point if a car buyer is torn between two similar vehicles. It's an extra comfort in knowing that he/she can get that money back and put it towards a new Honda. This is unavailable with Toyota's extra care protection plan, which acts as an extended warranty, providing that the new car buyer is buying a Toyota to replace his current Toyota. This eliminates any flexibility for the buyer and really takes away from the selling point of the plan. The Honda Care contract ranges coverage on many parts of the vehicle such as the engine, transmission, air conditioning, and fuel system, outer body, and many other components. This is a surefire way to keep your Honda vehicle running smoothly. The Honda Care plan is again a great way to not only maintain coverage but also peace of mind throughout the ownership of the vehicle. With all these plans and warranties combined, there is no doubt that Honda has gone all out in making sure that their vehicles are well covered for years to come. This is a huge benefit for new car buyers and another selling point in choosing a new Civic over a new Camry.
