The 2019 Toyota Corolla is easily one of the longest running small cars in the US. This is mainly because of its very dependable and trustful name, i.e. Toyota, and also a better car for commuting as well. This year or kind of next year, i.e. 2019, the Corolla is very much due for a newer model. There will be both a sedan, as well as a hatchback, that will be released as well. The Corolla hatchback initially will also be available in SE and XSE trim levels – which are both sportier trims for Toyota.
There will be an option for both 6-speed manuals, as well as automatic transmission too. Both will have tricks to help the Corolla feel sportier. The manual has rev-matching downshifts, while the automatic CVT has a dedicated first gear for quicker takeoffs. The car sure does looks very much exciting, to say the least. So, without wasting any more time, let’s look at some of the more important features of this car.
2019 Toyota Corolla Engine And Specifications
The 2019 version of the Toyota Corolla is very much motivated by the new kind, 2.0-liter inline-4 engine, which gives out more power. The car also can change gears easily, and it weighs the same too. The 2019 Corolla can’t be termed as more sporty, but it is definitely a much step up from the previous variant. On the performance scale, it gets a good point for a very thoughtful manual transmission that extracts the most amount of performance from its engine. Definitely, Toyota did some really good things with the car. The car makes about 168 BHP of power, which is up from 132 BHP of last year. Therefore, this version is the global powertrain, that can be expected to be seen in the Corolla sedan and hatchback as well, even though Toyota hasn’t yet detailed that model.
There is both 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions, available. Both are very unique in giving that sporty feeling. Both the manual and automatic have very specific features, as mentioned earlier, that makes the whole experience a lot more enjoyable. There are also paddle shifters, which are standard in the car. The power delivery on the automatic version is just not as better as on the manual version. Therefore, the manual version will always be recommended more, than the automatic CVT version.
The engine mostly makes its power in the high RPM range of 6500. It can easily do 0-60 MPH in just 7.5 seconds. The SE version of the car features 16-inch wheels. While the pricer 18 inches on XSE versions, but neither feels flinty or unnecessarily harsh on the road. There is four independent wheel suspension, for a more better ride on the car.

There is an 8.0-inch center touchscreen, that dominates attention in the front dash. While the rest of the materials seem very much mid type grade, even though the car’s relatively low cost.
Legroom inside the car is fairly generous, depending on the kind of passengers, that is seated inside. The boot space is around 18 cubic feet, which is step down from 20 cubic feet of last year. The difference isn’t that much noticeable though. The boot space is wide enough to accommodate all your luggage. The rear door is much lighter and easier to open than the previous generations.
