"The Corolla has been a legendary success for Toyota - and now it's time for a new vehicle to join the Corolla family and write the next chapter in that legend," said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. "The all-new, 2019 Corolla Hatchback represents an unprecedented change to the Corolla. The result is a very sporty design with the powertrain and handling to ensure it's absolutely as fun as it looks - and a whole lot more."
The 2019 Corolla Hatchback benefits from revolutionary new performance and modern styling, all built off the foundation of the Toyota New Global Architecture design and engineering process.
An all-new, two-litre inline 4-cylinder Dynamic Force engine boosts horsepower and overall performance compared to previous Corolla models, and the Corolla Hatchback will be offered with a choice of two transmissions, including an all-new direct shift CVT. With a lower centre of gravity, reduced weight, widened stance, and more, the Corolla Hatchback benefits from intuitive control and superior, more dynamic performance.
Inside and out, sportier styling and high-quality fittings ensure that every drive engages all the senses. The Corolla Hatchback will be available exclusively in Sport trims, with high-grade LED headlamps and rear combination lamps, a rear spoiler, piano black trim accents on the instrument panel, push button start, a smart key, 8" display audio, automatic air conditioning, and more. Plus, Apple CarPlay and the Entune system deliver advanced yet easy to use information and entertainment services.
As a Toyota, the Corolla Hatchback is extensively equipped with advanced safety technologies. These include TSS 2.0 - the second generation of the Toyota Safety Sense system, with even more active safety features.
