If you want a car for city commutes, the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is one of the more eye-catching vehicles currently available. A front-wheel-drive car that can accommodate five occupants comfortably, it comes in two models: the SE and the XSE. Let’s look at some of the top reasons to own the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback.
The All-New Sleek Exterior is Edgy
With its chrome-surround, front mega-grille and the expressive placement of the LED reflector headlights and LED daytime running lights, this is an attention-getting car. The LED taillights and chrome diffuser on the well-sculpted rear add to its distinctive look. The XSE model also has integrated LED fog lights. The16-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels on the SE and the 18-inch machined alloy wheels on the XSE further enhance the Corolla Hatchback’s dynamic appearance.
The Classy Interior is Well-Designed
The Corolla Hatchback’s cabin has dual-zone automatic climate control and is spacious for its size. The well-shaped front sport seats are fabric-upholstered in the SE and leather-trimmed and heated in the XSE. The passenger seat is four-way adjustable in both trims while the driver’s seat is six-way adjustable in the SE and eight-way adjustable in the XSE. In both trims, you can fold the rear seat in a 60/40 split.
The tilt-and-telescope leather-trimmed steering wheel has mounted controls for operating the driver information center. You can see the information on the 4.2-inch and 7-inch digital screens of the SE and the XSE, respectively. Both trims have an 8-inch touchscreen that is smartphone compatible and controls the Entune 3 infotainment system. With the smart key system, keep the key fob in your pocket and access and start your car with just a button press.
The Vehicle Packs A Decent Performance
The 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback’s 2.0-liter dynamic force four-cylinder DOHC engine creates 168 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. It works with a six-speed manual transmission that has a rev-matching feature to control speed and to transition smoothly between gear changes or a dynamic shift CVT that starts with a launch first gear and then, as the engine picks up, lets the continuously variable transmission takes over. Along with this, the all-new suspension helps the Hatchback navigate winding roads in a stable, responsive way, without too much body roll.
The Vehicle Has Advanced Safety Features
To protect occupants in a collision, the Corolla Hatchback comes fortified with airbags, side-impact door beams, crumple zones in the front and rear, and a steering wheel that collapses on impact to prevent injuring the driver.
It also comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, which has several driver-assist features to help avoid collisions. These include dynamic cruise control, lane tracing assist, lane departure alert, pedestrian detection alert, road sign assist, and automatic high beams. The vehicle also has a blind-spot monitor, a backup camera, LED headlights, a radar badge, and an in-vehicle camera.
Toyota’s Star Safety System, which offers an anti-lock braking system and an anti-theft system that can immobilize the car engine, and ToyotaCare, which gives you a no-cost maintenance plan and 24-hour roadside assistance for two years, are also excellent benefits of the Corolla Hatchback.
With all these great reasons to own a 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, the only real question is why you haven’t bought yours yet?
