Toyota has revisited the concept of a hatchback once more in the 2019 model year, providing a new and updated and stylish body build for its Corolla that enhances the little car’s sportiness and spunk. Decades ago back in 1976, the car that inspired this new model was originally known as the LIftback. It was only the third generation of Toyota cars sold in America, but instantly drivers fell for this efficient and long-lasting reliable vehicle, cementing Toyota as a staple car brand in the North American market. Since then, Toyota has only improved upon the Corolla’s great efficiency, fun, and personality. The new 2019 Corolla Hatchback is an all-new high-function, dynamic design that loudly advertises the quality handling and speediness you’ll experience every drive!
Flair Extraordinaire: The Exterior
The Hatchback offers just the right balanced look with its preserved sedan-style low 5-inch ground clearance, sizeable 16- or 18-inch wheels, and well-sloped windshield and roof to high spoiler and rounded rear with tapered tailpipe diffusers. It’s a build that connotes an eager need for windy roads and adventurous journeys. Wider 60-inch front and rear tracks and a slightly longer 104-inch wheelbase provides plenty of superior stability and handling to really hug those curves. The sharply angular LED headlights are well complemented by its large, aggressive matte black grille. This beautifully accents available matching black roof racks, really emphasizing the extra utility the Hatchback has been designed with. There’s two trim models available to select from–either the LE or SXE–differentiated distinctly with the SXE possessing a slightly more sporty appearance and ride thanks to bigger 18-inch wheels, chrome accent detailing, and available Adaptive Front Lighting System, focusing distribution of light in response to how fast and at what angle the car is driving. Colors are bold and definitely attract attention to this great, stylized car; you can find the 2019 Corolla Hatchback in Blue Flame, Galactic Aqua Mica, Blizzard Pearl, Scarlet, Oxide Bronze, Silver Metallic, or Midnight Black.
Inside accommodates five passengers to come along for the ride and soak in the matching inner artistry of the cabinspace to the exterior. Its 85 cubic-foot passenger pace is strikingly quiet while on the road thanks to improvements in the revised drivetrain as well as soundproofing materials throughout the cabin. Of course, the trunk space has been enhanced thanks to its design, providing you with a total of 18 cubic-feet for gear, supplies, and packs. Piano-black accents contrast white stitching on the black upholstery and soft-touch dash and panel materials. The sport seats are supportive and comfortable with six- or eight-way driver’s side adjustment, deeply contoured to keep you in place when the ride gets exciting. The SXE further enhances the quality of the ride with heated front seats, automatic dual-zone climates, leather-trimmed upholstery, and larger seven-inch driver gauge display with greater stats and system displays. Next to the steering wheel occupying center dash is an eight-inch touchscreen that comes programmed with standard GPS navigation, smartphone integration, Bluetooth with voice commands, and two USB ports. For those who want to further the technological prowess of the Corolla Hatchback, there’s available SiriusXM and 4G LTE WiFi subscriptions.
Lending the 2019 Corolla Hatchback its sporty acceleration and performance, the 2.0-liter Dynamic Force Engine is a responsive and raring-to-go four-cylinder that provides plenty of power matched with great Toyota-signature efficiency (maximum 32/42 mpg city/highway). An all-new suspension handles the 155 lb-ft of torque and 168 horsepower well. Both these systems have been engineered to be lighter, and the engine has a smaller design than previous years’ Corolla engines, giving the car a lower center of gravity and superior balance. The four-cylinder is equipped with standard variable valve timing, unique in that its powered by an electric motor instead of a typical oil pressure control. This overall enhances engine output, power, and fuel mileage while cutting harmful emissions. You can find the Hatchback with one of two transmission options. Both trims have choice of an intelligent six-speed manual or the bit more sportier option of an available all-new Dynamic-Shift continuously variable automatic transmission option. This system imitates a ten-speed, and comes equipped with paddle shifters as well as a Sport Mode to really bring out the Hatchback’s potential.
Every system has been carefully considered to make the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback a joyous drive that maximizes fun. There’s nothing like a car that makes every drive an exciting one thanks to great technology, comfort, and handling. The efficiency will save you a bunch too throughout the lifetime of the vehicle, guaranteed to accompany you on countless adventures over years of reliable and durable service.
