All-new for the 2019 model year – the Toyota Corolla Hatchback takes advantage of Toyota’s latest performance, handling, connected, and safety technologies, plus styling that grabs everyone’s attention. And, this hatch starts at just $20,980, that’s $1,770 less than the 2018 Corolla iM.
The newest addition to the Corolla family starts with an all-new way of thinking about automotive design. This is the first compact hatch to be conceived and built using the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) – a platform that enables many desirable features.
TNGA allowed designers to give Corolla Hatchback a low, wide stance to create a poised, athletic vehicle with a performance-enhancing low centre of gravity. The body is evocatively styled and exceptionally sporty, with a rear spoiler and standard features such as LED headlamps and rear combination lamps to impart a premium appearance.
Get inside and even before the drive begins, the Corolla Hatchback engages the senses. For the cabin, designers adopted a modern concept of sensuous minimalism to create an interior that is simple, yet warm and inviting, with a premium look and feel. TNGA optimizes the seating positions even as it helps lower the vehicle’s centre of gravity.
Under the hood, engineers created an all-new two-litre, four-cylinder Dynamic Force engine that gives Corolla Hatchback a competitive 168 peak horsepower plus excellent fuel efficiency.
This spirited engine is paired with a choice of two all-new transmissions. On the automatic side, a Direct Shift CVT has 10 sequential shiftmatic speed steps, a sport mode, and available paddle shifters. It’s also the first passenger vehicle CVT in the world with a launch gear. This improves transmission efficiency and responsiveness in lower gear ratios. For drivers who prefer a manual gearbox, there’s an all-new six speed intelligent manual transmission with downshift rev-matching control to ensure smoother gear shifting.
