2023 Toyota Camry vs. 2023 Honda Civic

Comparison between the 2023 Toyota Camry and the 2023 Honda Civic

1. Design and Exterior Features

The Civic has already been said to have striking lines and a sporty look in general, however when comparing the Honda Civic Si to the Toyota Camry SE, the Si is more appealing, it having more features and a sportier look. The Si has color-coded wing mirrors, stiffer suspension dropping ride height 10mm, and a rear wing spoiler is similar to that of the Camry, giving it a 'tuned' look. The Camry has also dropped ride height by 15mm, and the Si has a ground clearance only 5mm less than that of the Camry at its lowest point, so the two cars are quite similar in regards to size and proportions.

In terms of this year's model of the Toyota Camry, the lines of the vehicle are more curved and subtle than in previous years, making it look a lot less wide and tall even though the dimensions are relatively the same. The SE model comes with a number of extra features to make it look sporty and appealing including a rear spoiler, color-coded wing mirrors and front grille, and custom alloy wheels to enhance the image further.

The Honda Civic is a car that has stood out over the years, and the 2023 version is no different. The new Honda has an eye-catching design with bold lines and sporty curves, giving it a very different profile to the 2023 Toyota Camry's more traditional, wide, and long sedan shape. When comparing the two cars, the design is a great place to start as the variables in design taste often mean that one person may prefer one car over the other, regardless of the features or price.

1.1. Styling and aesthetics

Styling changes of the 2023 Camry have resulted in a more chiseled and expressive look than before, but with a design that is unmistakably Camry. According to Toyota, the intention was to create a more provocative and aggressive design, which is evident in styling cues taken from Toyota's luxury arm, Lexus. With its more athletic stance, it is clear that the Camry's target audience is younger than before without alienating existing customers. When compared with competitors, the Honda Civic does not subscribe to the common belief of conservative styling for compact cars. However, this is not to say the design is unattractive. A stark departure from the previous generation, the styling is much more adventurous and angular and can, in some ways, be seen as polarizing. Already, there are certain people who dislike the new design, whereas others think it is fresh and sporty. This would certainly appeal to a younger crowd, and Honda hopes that the new Civic will also retain its popularity among various tuning and modifying circuits. The front end has been so daring that the design has made the car appear to be a mini Accord rather than a larger Civic.

It is evident the world over of the significance that styling plays in a car's success or failure in the market. This is because it is relatively easy to reproduce mechanicals and develop new technologies or features, but styling is much more difficult to copy and is a big differentiating factor within the market. Both the compact and midsize segments are packed full of consumers who prefer conservative styling, which is what the typical Camry and Civic buyers are looking for. As a large population within these segments are baby boomers or elderly consumers.

1.2. Body dimensions and proportions

Measurements aside, though, both cars are designed to look aerodynamic and sporty. A low hood and rearward tapered cabin give both cars a hint of sportiness, along with sleek lines and a clean, uncluttered approach to their respective designs. Medium to large sedans tend to look rather bloated, but at present, they are looking noticeably better in terms of maintaining a streamlined and sleek design. Both the Civic and the Camry further emphasize this with the addition of separate sport-oriented trims becoming available for both. Aesthetic additions to the cars that distinguish them from more mundane versions are a blessing to those who prefer a sportier-oriented mid-size sedan.

In terms of size, the Civic is noticeably smaller than the Camry. It has a wheelbase of 2730mm and an overall length of 4646mm, making it smaller in both dimensions compared to its predecessor. Its width is 1802mm, and overall height is 1416mm. The 2022 Camry is larger still, with a wheelbase of 2825mm, overall length of 4880mm, overall width of 1840mm, and an overall height of 1440mm. Both cars give off a low, sleek, and wide stance, but proportionally the Camry is longer, wider, and taller, giving it a more grand and imposing look compared to the Civic. Width and length are dimensions that have seen an increase in popularity within consumer car choices. Because of this, the Camry appeals to those who prefer larger sedans.

1.3. Headlights and taillights

The taillights on these vehicles are also very sleek and well-designed. The Toyota Camry has larger taillights, and the SE and XLE models come with clear taillights. The Honda Civic's taillights flow with the shape of the vehicle very nicely. The 2-door and 4-door versions will have the same style, while the Civic Hybrid will feature a more rectangular style taillight. Overall, it really depends on your preference of size and light style. Both vehicles have aesthetically pleasing lights, and it would be hard to say that one vehicle is superior purely based on its lights.

The Honda Civic and Toyota Camry both come from reputable manufacturers, so naturally the headlights and taillights on these cars are very well crafted. The Toyota Camry's sleek and larger headlights give it a more exotic and aggressive feel. The body-colored grill on multiple models also adds a unique touch to the Camry. The different models of the Honda Civic will feature different styles of headlights. The 2-door version boasts one-piece project headlights and one-piece taillights. The 4-door Honda Civics and Honda Civic Hybrids will feature a two-piece design. All models of the Honda Civic will have a very modern look to their lights due to Honda's use of clear lenses and sometimes even LED lighting.

2. Performance and Engine Options

Performance is one of the most significant factors in a car. Many new cars today offer a multitude of powertrain options, and the 2023 Toyota Camry and the 2023 Honda Civic are no different. The Camry is offered with two powertrain options, a 2.5L 4-cylinder and a 3.5L V6 which is newly offered this year. The four-cylinder engine makes 178 horsepower in the Camry L, LE, and SE. The XLE has the four-cylinder engine, but it has been modified for increased efficiency making 168 horsepower. The 3.5L V6 makes 268 horsepower. The 2023 Civic offers a 2.0L 4-cylinder making 197 horsepower. This engine is offered in the DX model, DX-G, and EX. The Si model is offered with a 2.4L 4-cylinder that has been tuned to make 201 horsepower. The car with the most recent changes is the Camry. With an extensive powertrain lineup that offers a powerful V6, the Camry has the upper hand in this category. When comparing acceleration and top speed, the best way to compare the two cars is to match the most comparably powered models. The Camry V6 will do 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds with a top speed of 213 km/h. The Civic Si will do it in 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 228 km/h. The V6 Camry is close to the Si Civic in acceleration, but the Si has a higher top speed. The four-cylinder Camry models and the 4-cylinder Civic have similar acceleration times. The Camry will do 0-100 km/h in roughly 9 seconds, and the Civic will do it in 8.3 seconds. Top speeds for the Camry 4-cylinder models are 200 km/h, and the Civic will have a top speed of 190 km/h. These are fairly similar numbers, and the only exception is the 2.4 Civic which has a much higher top speed than the Camry 4-cylinder. When examining fuel efficiency and eco-friendly features, the Camry is a clear winner. Despite the claims from Honda that the new Civic is "greener than ever," the Camry has a large list of features that are going to leave a smaller carbon footprint. All Camry 4-cylinder models will be considered PZEV vehicles, and all models have an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle rating. The V6 Camry has a Partial Zero Emission Vehicle rating. The Camry offers many fuel-efficient technologies including a lower rolling resistance on new tires, an intake air filter that has less of an environmental impact, and a battery with lower energy capacity. The Camry also offers the option to run E85 ethanol. The Civic has made some changes in fuel efficiency, but doesn't have the same resources as the Camry. The Si model will offer improved gas mileage over the previous 2.4L engine, and they have announced that there will be a new Civic Hybrid offered in 2021. The Hybrid model will likely be the best contender to the Camry for fuel efficiency and eco-friendly features, but it is not yet available for comparison. The regular Civic models are not going to have as good of fuel efficiency or eco-friendly features as the Camry. All things considered, the Camry has better fuel efficiency and more eco-friendly features than the regular Civic models. The only loser between these two cars is the Civic, as it was discovered that the 2006 and 2007 model year Si coupes and sedans have been producing elevated smog emissions. A Honda spokesperson stated "The Civic Si might be one of the models affected." This is a big blow for the Civic as they have only made claims about the Si and still have been unable to confirm which models have higher smog emissions or what the cause of this problem is.

2.1. Powertrain options

Toyota offers the Camry with a choice of three powertrains. Most models will come with a 2.5-liter inline-four, which is more powerful and fuel efficient than the optional V-6. The base four is rated at 178 hp, and the special edition's new 4 will make 169 hp. Four-cylinder Camrys can be equipped with a 6-speed automatic or the same gearless CVT that comes with the V-6. We found the 4 and the CVT work well together, and the EPA rates this combination at 25-28 mpg in the city and 35-40 on the highway. The more basic 6-speed automatic and the 178 hp 4 should be a little more efficient. Toyota's V-6 is a smooth and potent powerplant, but its mileage is much worse than the 4s, and the increase in acceleration hardly seems worth paying more money every time you fill up and at the time of purchase. The V-6 comes mated to a 6-speed automatic and is rated at 20-21 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway. The base engine for the Civic is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. Now that a manual gearbox is no longer offered with this engine, a 5-speed automatic is the only available transmission, unlike the five or six speeds and CVTs offered with the Camry's four-cylinder. The EPA rated fuel economy for the automatic is 25-26 mpg in the city and 36-39 on the highway depending on body style. Though the Honda is less powerful in base form and less efficient than the Camry four overall, potential fuel savings for Camry buyers will be offset during the automatic Civic's higher resale value and lower available prices for insurance on more basic trim levels. The Civic's powertrain lineup is topped off by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This engine has slightly more power than the Camry's 4 at 174 hp with a more impressive 162 lb-ft of torque, and it's rated at 31-32 mpg in the city and 41-42 on the highway. A six-speed manual is available on some trims, while most will come with a CVT. Overall, the Civic has an edge in fuel efficiency without sacrificing much in the way of acceleration, but the cost of a more efficient base engine and the potential long-term costs of the turbocharged engine's complex components may or may not be offset by fuel savings for buyers within the length of a typical car loan or ownership period.

2.2. Acceleration and top speed

The Camry gains an available 3.5-liter V6 that gives 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission are standard. In Edmunds testing, a V6 Camry quickened from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds, a brisk time for a six-chamber fair size car. EPA-assessed efficiency is 28 mpg joined (25 city/34 interstate), however we found the V6 to be very productive in our genuine testing, accomplishing 35.4 mpg on our 115-mile assessment circle. Tragically, much lower efficiency ought not out of the ordinary for the AWD Camry, which is appraised at 25 mpg joined. The four-chamber Camry is bested by the V6-and AWD prepared opponents, which can pull 2000 or 3000 pounds, separately. Its most extreme rating is 1000 pounds. The term "Top speed" alludes to the most extreme speed an engine or vehicle can accomplish. Since a vehicle can't achieve this speed except if changes in accordance with the wheels and streamlined wing parts have been effective. While neither the Camry nor the Civic guarantee their top speed, Toyota will probably give careful attention to its V6 display's managed top speed of 112 mph. This is on the grounds that Japanese automakers generally keep a 200bhp vehicle's top speed constrained to 112 mph. This is kind of an implicit agreement came to amid a significant part of the 90's horsepower wars an endeavor to avert liabilities emerging from the rate and severity of auto crashes. Step by step, a significant number of the Accord and Camry's rivals began derating motors to achieve best efficiency figures, so the poorly characterized Japanese brilliance wasn't lost.

2.3. Fuel efficiency and eco-friendly features

Both Camry and Civic are very good fuel efficient vehicles, but Civic is the winner here. Camry's 2.5-liter engine has been posted at 28 miles per gallon around the city, 39 miles per gallon on the freeway, and 32 combined. While Civic has 27 city, 38 highway, 31 combined. And for the 3.5 liter V6, it drops to 22 around town, 33 on the highway, 26 combined. Civic, on the other hand, offers 4 different engine options including a hybrid. The base 2.0L inline 4 offers an astonishing 31 around town, 40 on the highway, and 35 combined. With the 1.5L turbo down 1-2 miles per gallon, the race inspired 205 HP turbo increases to 23 city, 33 highway, 27 combined. The real true winner here and the difference maker in efficiency is the 2017 Civic 2 mode hybrid. A vehicle that offers sports inspired styling and a 40 miles per gallon rating. Compared to Camry's 2015 Hybrid model, with 43 city, 39 highway, and 41 combined. According to Toyota, the 2018 model is supposed to resume the long lost efficiency the original hybrid model used to have. It was price competitive and people loved the mileage. While Civic has had a hard time matching the MPG's of the first generation Hybrids, a 40 MPG rating is quite impressive. Toyota has a new roadmap towards a global environmental initiative and plans to get 90 percent of their vehicle sales from hybrid electric vehicles. Out of the two stated here, a residual direct impact has been made in racing inspired performance vehicles that are efficient. But Honda truly has more options in the market. Camry does come up on top still for standard stock ratings compared to the 2L turbo and Si models. Both the Camry and Civic are proven vehicles that have generated long time sales and a loyal market segment. But in comparison of these two durable cars, the Honda Civic clearly has more performance staying power.

2.4. Handling and driving dynamics

The Camrys are again quite different in terms of handling and performance. Those V6 XLE buyers who want the luxury suspension have only one choice: the XLE 4-cylinder with its standard suspension. This version is similar to the pre-2015.5 XLE models in both comfort and performance, the main difference being that the older models had quite a bit slower acceleration. With its standard suspension, the XLE V6 simply feels only a touch sportier than the SE 4-cylinder. The LE 4-cylinder and all V6s use a similar MacPherson strut front, dual-link rear suspension to the previous generation, although some differences in the finer details produce a slightly better drive. All Handling and Driving Dynamics past this point do not apply to these models. With the growing popularity of crossovers, Toyota hopes to keep mid-size sedan driving dynamics competitive by giving the counter-Camry, the 2021 RAV4 Prime, an identical TNGA-K platform and all-wheel-drive. Note that the engine and drivetrain combinations in this review are only specific to the 2021-2023 Camry, and although Toyota's EU TGNA sedans use different model designations and a slightly different platform, many aspects of this review are also applicable to these markets.

The Camry has been consistently highly praised for its comfort, isolation, and ease of driving. Recent generations are no exception, with commendable ride quality, graphically responsive steering, and ample chassis composure. Also available in the SE and XSE is an (uncommon in the intermediate segment) higher performance bent, with a more firmly-sprung suspension and 18-inch wheels shod with P225/45R18 all-season tires. The XSE V6 meanwhile goes a step further with a unique Y design 18-inch wheel and adds Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management. All told, it is the best handling Camry ever, although it is by no means a substitute for a legitimate sports sedan. Beyond XSE, the XLE is divided by the 4-cylinder and V6 into two very different sorts of Camry. The 4-cylinder version uses the SE's same sport-tuned suspension, while adding 17-inch wheels with P215/55R17 tires. This is different from the pre-2015.5 XLE 4-cylinder, which used to share its underpinnings with the equivalent grade LE; in other words, non-Sport.

3. Interior and Comfort

The Toyota Camry has a more spacious interior than the Honda Civic. Although the Honda has more front and rear headroom than the Camry, the Camry offers more front and rear legroom as well as more rear hip room and more rear shoulder room. This means that we can assume the Camry is a more comfortable car for people with long legs. Both cars can seat 5 passengers. The Camry has a 60/40 split rear seat for more versatile cargo carrying. Both cars are available with leather seats. The quality of the upgrades are available in the Camry for dual zone climate control and a moonroof. Honda offers available upgrades of leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Overall, the Camry offers a slightly more spacious and comfortable interior with more amenities than the Civic. Both cars offer a tilt and telescopic steering wheel and power windows. The higher-priced models of both cars have steering wheel-mounted audio controls. The Camry LE includes power lumbar support, an 8-way power driver's seat, and remote keyless entry, which are not included in the Civic LX but are included in the Honda Accord's base model. The Camry only offers a 6-way adjustable front passenger seat for the top 2 models and no available lumbar support for the higher-priced models. The LE and SE models have a 3.5-inch amber tint screen for the display of audio and climate control. The Civic's highest-priced model offers a 6.8-inch display. A moonroof is available in the higher-priced Camry and the Civic, giving the cabin a more open feeling.

3.1. Cabin space and seating capacity

The front seats provide plenty of comfort, making them quite suitable for long road trips. Headroom is excellent thanks to the Camry's height, and the seat is mounted high and provides good thigh support. The base LE's seats are decent but the SE and XSE's seats are better bolstered and more supportive. Step up to the XLE and XSE and you'll get an 8-way power driver seat with 2-way power lumbar. Not to be outdone, top-line models feature a 10-way power driver seat with 2-way power lumbar and a 4-way power passenger seat. A power sunroof is optional on the XLE and XSE, standard on the XLE Hybrid.

Toyota has the edge in window real estate, which can contribute to the feeling of spaciousness inside a car. In the Camry, it certainly does. With a relatively high roof and low beltline, the cabin feels open and airy, and outward visibility is excellent. The cabin also feels wide for a midsize car, with plenty of shoulder room and space for elbows to rest on the center console. That center console also aces a family-friendly test with a wide bin beneath the climate controls and a large storage area beneath the armrest.

3.2. Infotainment and connectivity features

The Camry has six speakers as the standard audio setup, with the option of upgrading to a 9-speaker JBL system. The Honda uses either a 4-speaker or 8-speaker setup, depending on the trim, but only the Touring model offers a 9-speaker premium audio system. Both manufacturers have a strong emphasis on broadcast and podcast functionality with their base trims, as the availability of satellite radio requires an upgrade to a midlevel or optional package.

Meanwhile, the Honda uses a 7-inch touchscreen which looks relatively out of date next to the Camry's setup. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are standard on all trims except the base model, which uses Display Audio and has these features as an optional installation. This system doesn't offer in-dash navigation, but does display the phone's map interface, and those who choose to upgrade to the Touring spec will also be able to connect to onboard navigation using a higher-quality head unit.

The Camry offers an 8-inch touchscreen, while higher trims use a 9-inch screen. For 2022, Toyota added a new multimedia system with a remodeled screen and faster software. All Camrys now come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Those who would rather use in-dash, integrated navigation will have to upgrade to at least the Camry XLE trim. The 8-inch screen uses Toyota's more typical floating style, and those who opt for in-dash navigation will also get a higher-quality head unit.

3.3. Comfort and convenience amenities

While both cars offer a plethora of comfort amenities for their owners, the Toyota Camry has more to offer considering the HomeLink system is available in the car's second-level trim. The power sunshade offered with the Toyota Camry is also a unique amenity, as no other car in the Camry's class offers this option. Although these amenities will vary with different trim levels, the Toyota Camry still offers more comfort options in comparison to the Honda Accord.

For the Honda Accord, the comforts are very similar to that of the Toyota Camry. The EX-L and Touring Accords both come with a power-adjustable driver seat, and both models have leather-trimmed seating. Honda takes it one step further with heated front seats in the EX-L and Touring models. All Accords have a split folding rear seat, and the Touring model comes with a rear seat armrest to add to the Accord's rear seat luxury. The Honda Accord offers an available HomeLink remote system, but only with the purchase of the Accord's available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System. This is unlike the Toyota Camry, which offers HomeLink in the mid-level trim.

Interior comfort amenities for the Toyota Camry include a power-adjustable driver seat, while the passenger seat has 6-way adjustability. The Toyota Camry offers a HomeLink universal transmitter to avoid clipping garage door openers onto a car visor. HomeLink is integrated into the Camry's rearview mirror. The combination of leather-trimmed seating with Ultrasuede offers buyers a luxurious feel without the high price tag. Power sunshades are available for the rear window to block out the sun's rays, a feature that isn't available in the Accord nor on any other vehicle in the Camry's class.

3.4. Quality of materials and finishes

The interior quality in a car plays a big role in a vehicle's perception, as a quality cabin generally denotes a quality car. For Camry and Civic, both cars offer minimalist designs that are easy on the eyes. The Civic includes many upscale features inside making it feel more luxurious. For the base level models, the Civic includes a fully digital gauge cluster and a 7-inch touch screen at no extra charge. The Camry starts with a 4.2-inch digital gauge cluster and a larger 7-inch touch screen, but to get more you're digging into more expensive trims. The Civic also includes a power driver's seat on all but the base model, while the Camry only includes it on the more expensive trims. The Civic gets more upholstery options, and the higher-end trims include leatherette or leather which is likely more comfortable than the cloth in the Camry. The Camry offers wood interior trim, which is nice for some people but probably an unnecessary luxury in a budget sedan. Overall, the Civic's extensive interior features make it feel like a more expensive car compared to the Camry.

4. Safety and Advanced Technology

The Camry is feature-packed when it comes to safety and advanced technology integration. With Toyota's Safety Sense active safety features, it comes standard with autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control. It has 7 airbags and averaged 4.59 stars out of 5 from Australia's ANCAP testing. The Camry also detected a collision and applied full braking power avoiding an obstacle completely at 20 km/h and braked to reduce speeds by 32 km/h at 40 km/h. The Civic also comes standard with Honda Sensing active safety features. It has autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning with active lane-keep assist, and road departure mitigation using a windscreen-mounted camera. The Civic has 6 airbags and has a 5-star ANCAP rating. The Civic also demonstrated excellent performance in its AEB system, avoiding a collision at 20 km/h and 40 km/h.

4.1. Active safety features

The Camry offers most active safety features standard. When comparing to the Civic, the Camry has standard blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, and a rearview camera. Accord offers an available comprehensive Honda Sensing suite on all trims. This suite includes lane departure warning, lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and collision mitigation braking. In IIHS safety testing, the Toyota Camry received a "good" rating in all crashworthiness tests, including the small overlap front test on both sides but only received an "acceptable" rating in the headlight category. The Honda Accord fared better with a "good" rating in all crashworthiness tests as well and received an "acceptable" rating in the headlight category and a "superior" rating on the crash prevention and mitigation test. The Camry received a 5-star overall safety rating in NHTSA testing, with a 4-star rollover test result. The Honda Accord has not been fully rated yet by NHTSA.

4.2. Driver-assistance systems

The Civic is available with "Honda Sensing" which is standard on the VTi-LX and optional on the VTi and VTi-S. The sensors designed to avoid frontal collisions are less intuitive than those in the Camry. When getting close to a car in front of it, the Civic will fully apply the brakes when it senses an emergency situation. Although it sounds the same on paper, the Camry has the added benefit of reducing vehicle speed thus reducing collision severity and the likelihood of being involved in an accident. The Civic does not have an adaptive cruise control system and is not as effective in its lane keep assist as the Camry. While the Civic can determine lane position only above 72 km/h, the Camry can read road lanes at 50 km/h which is useful for slow moving traffic in city areas and road work zones. This Honda system does not have a lane departure warning in lower grades with no lane keeping assist. This is similar to the Camry which has no lane keeping assist on the base Altise; however, it has full FCW and AEB.

Toyota's Camry comes with a "Safety Sense" package which is standard across all its models. This includes a forward-collision warning system, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. One of the Camry's options is its blind-spot monitoring system. Using radar in the rear quarter panels, the system detects when a vehicle is in the driver's blind spot and will begin to flash a warning light in the appropriate side mirror. If the turn signal is turned on in the direction of the detected vehicle, the light will flash more rapidly and be accompanied by a warning sound. This is a helpful feature if the driver is slow to react to a vehicle in their blind spot. This is a similar setup to the Civic, as it also has a warning light in the side mirror and beeps if the turn signal is turned on. The Civic also has a useful maneuver where if the car starts to merge into the detected vehicle, the steering wheel will apply torque to alert the driver and correct the situation.

4.3. Advanced technology integration

Toyota and Honda are competing for the best "bang for your buck" with the inclusion of advanced technologies and connectivity features in each of their offerings. Toyota has chosen to equip both models with their exclusive T-Connect infotainment system. The XSE and XLE models of the 2023 Toyota Camry come standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen. The base level LE model gets a 7.0-inch screen that can be upgraded with the same 8.0-inch screen, available on the Camry Hybrid SE and XLE trims. Integrated into the T-Connect system is the standard backup camera and optional ETC/digital radio/TV tuner. Android users are offered seamless integration with the Camry's T-Connect system with an included "Smartphone Navigation" feature. The Smartphone Navigation feature uses the phone's data stream to feed the user real-time directions from T-Connect navigation, instead of data stored on the phone. Although this feature is optional with the standard system, it allows the user to upgrade to the T-Connect navigation interface at their convenience. Honda has preferred to install their adequate Display Audio system to the 2023 Honda Civic. Each model version gets a 7.0-inch touchscreen complemented with buttons and knobs for more traditional or tactile users. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility will facilitate smartphone integration for all Civic users. Optionally available on the Civic EX, EX-L, and Touring models is an additional Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System. This navigation system receives input from the built-in GPS module combined with an integrated voice command functionality, providing directions without the need for the driver to divert attention to the unit. Key to the 2023 Toyota Camry's T-Connect system is the optional installation of the "T-Connect ETC" interface. This dedicated hardware unit provides updated traffic information and alternate route suggestions to the driver in addition to highway toll gate integrated payment. This service is free of charge as a trial service for 3 years from subscription. The service is available in the metropolitan Tokyo and Kansai area, which covers Mie, Shiga, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hyogo Prefectures. Preinstalled Honda Civic units are equipped with a Honda HD Digital Traffic system for navigation-equipped models. This system provides continuously updated real-time traffic information for the driver and also uses it to generate route suggestions, which may help the driver avoid traffic congestion. Subscriptions for the Honda HD Digital Traffic service are complimentary for 3 months, then require a fee. Both navigation systems use the data stream to display GPS location on a server and transmit traffic information and suggestions to the user from roadways to individual street locations.
