What's New for the 2019 Toyota Corolla?

All new for 2019, Toyota has completely redesigned the sporty hatchback version of the Corolla, giving buyers a quirky alternative to the standard sedan. Both models remain spacious for their class, and the sedan retains the exterior upgrades that give the Corolla its signature look. It may not appear as exciting when placed next to its hatchback sister, but the sedan still retains an appeal of its own.

2019's hatchback is the biggest redesign of the Corolla line-up in years. The hatchback is sporty in a way the more sedate sedan doesn't try to be, and its predecessor hatchback, the Corolla iM never quite achieved.

The Wide Lineup of Corolla Trims

The 2019 Corolla comes with the choice of 6 different trims. From the basic L to the top of the line XSE, there is an option to fit most budgets. One step up from the L is the LE (also available in the LE Eco with the same bells and whistles but better fuel economy) that lands with LED headlights, 16-inch steel wheels, a multimedia touchscreen device, automatic climate control, rear view camera, cruise control, and the Toyota custom-built driver assist system, Safety Sense.

For a premium, the SXE adds a sporty front grille, 17-inch wheels, rear spoiler, larger touchscreen, SiriusXM, power driver's seat, heated seats, and Sport mode.

All models come loaded with a navigation system with a touchscreen and Siri Eyes Free programming for iPhone owners.

The hatchback comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and impressive touchscreen display, as well as the most comfortable seats in the line-up.

What Is Under the Hood of the Corolla?

2019 Toyota Corolla Passenger SideThe front wheel drive Corolla comes standard in most trims and models with a 132-horsepower, 1.8 liter 1-4 engine. The LE Eco, which is upgraded to a 140-horsepower engine, has a line-leading estimated 30 hwy / 40 city mpg rating. In addition to the standard automatic, both a six-speed manual and CVT version are available.

The hatchback has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that achieves a 168-horsepower rating. While its horsepower may not make the Corolla the strongest hatchback on the block, it is low to the ground and fun to drive, with plenty of pep and agility. Driving can be shifted between three bespoke modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport.

Toyota Safety Sense Brings Innovative Safety Measures
