2019 Toyota Corolla Review and Comparison in Colorado Springs, CO

The 2019 Toyota Corolla Sedan Sees the Return of Its Hot-Hatch Heritage!

As one of the most-famous and recognizable four-door sedans in the whole world, you can surely spot plenty of Toyota Corolla models whenever you go out for a drive around town. Since 1966, a whopping 44,000,000 sales have been made for the Corolla, and it's likely that this figure will hit a half-billion sometime in 2025. 

Certainly it's the remarkable reliability, resale value, and longevity of the Toyota Corolla Sedan that has made this model so incredibly popular across the industry. However, for the 2019 model-year, we are seeing the return of a different breed of the Corolla altogether; the Toyota Corolla Hatchback! 

Get Familiar with the All-New 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

For the first time since the 1980s, the Toyota Corolla model is now available in not just one, but two different body styles. Our customers can take their favorite pick between the sleek Corolla Sedan and also the larger, more versatile Corolla Hatchback here on our lot. With the return of this hot hatchback design, we fully expect that the exceptionally hot-selling Toyota Corolla will continue to dominate its competitive segment of the marketplace. 

On the other hand, the new 2019 Toyota Corolla Sedan remains largely unchanged from its highly-praised predecessor, because why fix what isn't broken? The new Corolla Sedan offers the L, LE, LE Eco, XLE, SE, and the XSE trims, while the Corolla Hatchback offers the SE and XSE. 

Exploring the Corolla's Sedan & Hatchback Designs

The Toyota Corolla Sedan has been heavily redesigned and enhanced over the recent years, which is probably why there wasn't too much added for 2019. Compared to that of its old appearance that some shoppers found to be somewhat mainstream and perhaps even a bit boring-looking, the 2019 Corolla Sedan model is now far more sophisticated, refined and eye-catching. 

Take one look at the all-new Corolla Hatchback and it becomes crystal-clear that this is one undeniably handsome five-door hatchback model. Sure, some of its competitors may appear to be more sporty and seductive, but the Toyota Corolla Hatchback is attractive in a more mature and tasteful manner. Of course, a key benefit of a hatchback is the additional cargo space in the back, and the 2019 Corolla Hatchback offers plenty of it. 

Practical Blend of Power & Efficiency

Standard equipment for the 2019 Toyota Corolla Sedan includes a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood, providing an impressive maximum of 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque, which is plenty for passing those huge 18-wheelers along the highways. The LE Eco trim kicks things up a notch with a tuning for improved power as well as fuel-efficiency. But if you really are seeking the most-fun-to-drive Toyota Corolla out there, then certainly you will be drawn towards the new Corolla Hatchback. Not only does this vehicle look far sportier than the sedan, it delivers a much sportier drive too, as its 2.0-liter engine provides up to 168 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque with the push of the gas pedal. 

In true Toyota form, the 2019 Corolla is very fuel-efficient in addition, with an excellent EPA-estimated rating of up to 30/38 city/hwy for the hatchback. 

Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) Is Standard Across the Board

That's right, all trim levels of the 2019 Toyota Corolla Sedan and the Hatchback come with the brand's generous suite of state-of-the-art safety features, for no additional cost at all for buyers. Thanks to the features included with TSS-P listed just below, the new Corolla earned a 2018 Top Safety Pick raking from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)! 

  • Lane Departure Warning with Steering Assist
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Automatic High Beams

You can always drive with confidence when you jump behind the wheel and take a spin with the new Toyota Corolla. 

The New Corolla Gets a More In-Tune Entune™ Infotainment System

While it may be a result of peer pressure, Toyota has now finally added full compatibility with Apple CarPlay™ to their Entune™ Infotainment System. With this clever technology, it really could not be any easier for you to connect with your iPhone and access your must-have mobile applications when you are on-the-go. Unfortunately for Android users, compatibility with Android Auto™ isn't available for the Toyota Corolla just quite yet, but it most likely will be very soon. 

Other technologically-advanced creature comforts for the 2019 Corolla include an available premium audio system, built-in navigation, an intuitive touchscreen display, and tons more. 

Savvy Shoppers Will Find the Sensible Corolla Quite Tough To Resist

It is not the fastest or the most luxurious sedan or hatchback out there today, but that is because the new Toyota Corolla focuses on far more important factors for daily drivers like yourself.
