2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

Consumer Guide Automotive

First, let me allay your fears: This is not THE redesigned 2019 Corolla; it’s the redesigned 2019 Corolla Hatchback, which will be sold alongside the existing 2018 Corolla sedan when the Hatchback hits dealer showrooms in July. (When asked about a corresponding 2019 Corolla sedan, a Toyota rep gave the usual, ”We can’t comment on future products” line. But chances are strong it’s coming by the end of 2018.)

Aston Martin Cygnet

Why would Aston Martin, a British company known for building ultra-luxury high-performance coupes, contract with Japanese automaker Toyota to build an Aston-branded version of one of the smallest, least-powerful Toyota-built cars on the market? Turns out there’s a good answer to that question, but it gets a little complicated.

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

New York Auto ShowIn advance of the car’s debut at the 2018 New York Auto Show, Toyota has unveiled its redesigned 2019 Corolla—and the new model is a hatchback instead of a sedan.

In addition to the body-style change, the new Corolla is a bit longer, lower, and wider than the outgoing-generation model. It utilizes the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) Platform, versions of which also underpin the current Toyota Prius and the unconventional C-HR crossover. Toyota says the torsional rigidity of the new Corolla’s body structure is improved by 60 percent over its predecessor.
