Take a First Look at the All-New 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback!

The 2018 New York International Auto Show on March 23 was abuzz as Toyota revealed what it billed as its "most technologically-advanced small car" yet, a model of "utility, practicality, and style." A "haute hatch" with a sport coupe aesthetic, the new 2019 Toyota Corolla wowed audiences in what will soon become SE and XSE trims, to be sure. But what else do drivers from Plano and McKinney to Gainesville, TX and Durant, OK have to look forward to from the "Let's Go Places" moniker?

For one, a build based on the new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, packing an energetic new 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine paired with your choice of a sporty six-speed iMT manual or smooth Dynamic-Shift CVT transmission. Perhaps most excitingly, it'll feature, in tandem with a revised sport-tuned suspension, a CVT-integrated launch gear, a world's-first among passenger vehicles, improving transmission efficiency in lower gear ratios and resulting in acceleratory capability to make the adrenaline rush.

True to the Toyota edge in forward-thinking technologies, the new 2019 Corolla is also set to showcase a sprawling 7-inch TFT Multi-Information Display (MID) for critical driving metrics readout as well as Entune 3.0 with Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, putting you in touch with your mobile lifestyle for the pleasure cruise. Likewise, we can expect first-rate Dynamic Navigation features like Dynamic POI Search and Destination Assist Connect, as well as entertainment features to keep you and your fellow road-trippers occupied, from an HD Radio and SiriusXM support to Wi-Fi Connect ability and an 800-watt, eight-speaker JBL audio system with Clari-Fi. Even Qi wireless device charging will come available to keep your peripherals energized and ready for the outing.

What's more, the new Corolla will remain a model of our automaker's commitment to security, with a standard Toyota’s Star Safety System, to be sure. But it'll also mark the first iteration of the new Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite, showcasing driver-assist tech from the celebrated Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control to Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Automatic High Beams. Joining the TSS-P lineup for 2019, Lane Tracing Assist comes standard for center tracking alongside Road Sign Assist for visual and audible warnings of local regulations.

We're willing to bet you're as stoked as we are for the new Toyota hatchback to appear. Until it does, we wait. But that doesn't mean you have to. You can get the Toyota hatch experience to whet your sport-driving appetite behind the wheel of a new Corolla iM or Prius right here at Classic Toyota of Texoma. Take the short drive out to see us at 1920 N US Highway 75 in Denison, and we'll take you for a spin!
