In 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.

In celebration of the company’s 50th Anniversary of selling cars in the U.S., Subaru announced special commemorative editions of each of its vehicles at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.
Fiat announced at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show that gas-powered 2018 editions of its little 500 would all sport turbocharged engines.
