Take the 2016 Toyota Camry on a test drive to find out why Boerne drivers prefer this vehicle to other sedans. The Camry is among the most popular cars in Boerne, but many residents are also tempted by the 2016 Honda Civic. Although the Civic is a compact sedan and the Camry is a midsize one, they have similar enough dimensions to make them competitors.
Before getting into too many details, it is important to realize that both the 2016 Camry and Civic are available in numerous configurations. The Camry is always a sedan, but it offers two gas engines and a hybrid powertrain. Meanwhile, there isn’t a 2016 Civic Hybrid, although there have been hybrid models in the past. You can, however, choose from a sedan or coupe, and a hatchback will be available with future model years. At the moment, you can essentially say that each 2016 model offers two main options. The Camry has the regular and the hybrid model, and the Civic has the sedan and the coupe.
The Civic lets you choose from two engines while the Camry has three if you include the hybrid. The base Civic engine is a 2-liter 4-cylinder, and the base Camry has a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder. Even with such a size difference, the Camry is only slightly behind in terms of base efficiency. It more than makes up for this with higher horsepower and torque, however. Expect 178 horsepower and 170 pound-feet from the base Camry and 158 horses and 138 pound-feet from the base Civic.
Both models also offer upgrades. The Civic offers a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with 174 horsepower. The Camry has a 3.5-liter V6 with 268 horsepower, giving it a clear lead. The Camry even takes the lead in terms of fuel economy with its 200-horsepower hybrid powertrain that gives you 41 mpg* combined.
The Camry and Civic both give you more than enough space to stretch out in the front seat, since this is almost never an issue for sedans. The rear seat is where it counts and here the Camry has an extra 1 inch of headroom and an additional 1.5 inches of legroom. Even the Camry’s trunk is larger, 15.4 cubic feet compared to 15.1 cubes in the Civic.
Going with the 2016 Toyota Camry instead of the Civic will give you the ability to get more power, better gas mileage, and more interior space. You also get the excellent Toyota warranty and reliability. Visit Toyota of Boerne in Boerne, Texas, to learn more about the Camry or take it on a test drive.
