2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Review
When Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler drivers choose a hatchback over a standard sedan, they’re not just getting a car with more cargo room. They’re getting a vehicle that’s more stylish and, in some cases, has a sportier feel.
The Corolla Hatchback is a perfect example of this. Read this 2019 Corolla Hatchback review by the Baierl Automotive team to see why.
Toyota Corolla Hatchback: Sporty Performance
The first thing you might notice about the 2019 Corolla Hatchback is its peppy performance. It comes standard with a 2.0L Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine, which produces 168 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque.
Certainly, that has some zip while you’re out cruising. It’s got some pretty smooth handling, too. That has a lot to do with its redesigned suspension, which puts the hatchback closer to the ground. A low center of gravity means that it has greater stability around turns and far less body roll.
While you’re out joy-riding, you won’t burn through too much gas. That Dynamic Force engine is optimized for higher fuel efficiency. The Toyota Corolla Hatchback maintains an EPA-estimated 37 MPG highway and 28 MPG city.1 Clearly, the extra miles won’t break the bank.
Updated Hatchback Styling
The Toyota Corolla Hatchback was clearly designed with a sense of sportiness and sheer fun in mind. That’s obvious enough in some of its sharp new accents.
The 2019 model has a wider and lighter stance. Clearly, this makes the car a bit nimbler on the road, but it gives it a more aggressive look, too.
Its body shape—including bold character lines that flow off the fascia—is underscored by some of its shinier accents. Its glossy hatch in the rear, as well as chrome tailpipe diffusers and a chrome grille surround, tend to frequently catch the eye.
The Toyota Corolla Hatchback also comes standard with an integrated rear window spoiler. It flows off the back of the car at a sharp angle that really gives it a speedy look.
Toyota Corolla Hatchback Interior
In your hatchback, you’re pretty much guaranteed to have more cargo space than in your standard sedan. In the Corolla Hatchback, for instance, there’s 17.8 cubic feet behind the second row just for any luggage you might have.
As far as passenger space, this hatchback seats five, and it offers up 84.6 cubic feet of room that you can stretch out in while on the go.
As driver, you’ll have 38.4 inches of headroom and 42 inches of legroom. The front legroom in particular is something as a surprise, as this number bests many other hatchbacks in its class.
With the space that this car has to offer, you should be good to go on your next road trip!
