Hatch is Back! All-New 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Wows at the 2018 New York International Auto Show.
Talk about going big in the Big Apple! For the first time in North America, Toyota's newest, stylish, and most technologically-advanced compact car in the world, the all-new 2019 Corolla Hatchback, makes its debut at the New York International Auto Show.
Don't let its diminutive dimensions fool you - the hatchback, in either S, SE or XSE grades, is all about making a huge impression. With its lengthy list of standard features that includes Entune 3.0 with Apple CarPlay; a revised sport-tuned suspension and new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform; and the first North American application of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, Corolla Hatchback strikes a resounding chord with drivers who value authenticity, utility, practicality, and style.
Corolla Hatchback has flair extraordinaire. With a theme of Shooting Robust, along with a design goal of Agile, influencing their every pen stroke, designers created a form that is simultaneously distinct, dynamic, muscular, and sophisticated. Shooting references the design's sport coupe traits implemented in all facets.
With those concepts in mind, Corolla Hatchback is a meticulously mixed cocktail of emotive lines, creases, and surfaces. It's lower (by 25 mm), wider (by 30 mm), and longer (by 40 mm) than its predecessor, Corolla iM. It also has wider front and rear tracks, and a longer wheelbase. Its hood sits 47 mm lower than before, affording passengers excellent forward visibility. The new frontal styling with a rounded nose and trapezoidal-shaped under grille is a further evolution of Toyota's Under Priority Catamaran and Keen Look design philosophies, both of which emphasize Corolla Hatchback's increased width. Slim, J-shaped Bi-Beam LED headlamps wrap deep into the front fenders and accent the front in both stylishness and precise illumination. Front overhang has been cut by 20 mm; at the rear, it's 20 mm longer. Chiseled character lines at its profile link both ends' protruding flanks making for an active, well-planted expression that is uncommon amongst its peers. Wheel sizes range from 16-inches to 18-inches in diameter.
Its new rear style articulates Corolla Hatchback's overarching emphasis on athletic presence. The relationship between front and rear design is closely aligned given the rear's more rounded physique that encompasses simple, condensed, yet powerful, three-dimensional landscapes. Its hatch - now made from TSOP (Toyota Super Olefin Polymer) and ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) - is not only lightweight to aid fuel efficiency, it is set at a steeper angle (moved 14 degrees forward) for that ultimate sporty look. The rear all-LED taillamps feature a diffusing inner lens designed to highlight the hatchback's stout stance. And the rear bumper styling echoes the frontal Under Priority Catamaran design with its thin lower lip and chrome diffuser.
Differentiation between S, SE and XSE is distinct. All grades receive LED headlamps, LED taillights, and a rear spoiler. XSE ups the ante with 18-inch wheels, LED fog lights and chrome front grille surround. The Bi-Beam LED units move vertically and horizontally to provide optimal light output by analyzing steering angle, vehicle speed, and the vehicle's longitudinal axes angle to adjust lamps.Corolla Hatchback's colour range includes the new-for-2019 color Rival Blue, as well as Blizzard Pearl, Silver Metallic, Midnight Black, Galactic Aqua Mica, Scarlet, and Oxide Bronze.
Simple. Warm. Inviting. Sensuous. Descriptors like these inspired designers' efforts when visualizing Corolla Hatchback's cabin. Sensuous Minimalism marinates the entire capacious space. From their supportive sport seats, front passengers are faced with a neat instrument panel that lends an open, harmonious feeling thanks to its 22 mm thinner upper surface and 43 mm wider centre console dividing passengers. At the centre of the instrument panel resides a standard high-resolution 8-inch multimedia touchscreen. The centre stack screen provides access to vehicle settings, audio controls, navigation, smartphone, and Entune 3.0 apps. Climate controls, located below the multimedia portal, are fashioned in a bright, highly visible digitized configuration.
In addition to being wider, the centre console is also longer to accommodate a larger variety of passenger physiques and comfort preferences. It incorporates a centre tray ahead of the gearshift that can hold small items such as a smartphone or wallet, or if outfitted, serves as the Qi wireless device charging area. A 140 mm smartphone can easily fit inside the centre console box. High-gloss materials are paired with matte elements - silver accents with Piano Black and available contrasting stitching - to best accentuate a premium look and feel. The elimination of unnecessarily lettering on switchgear, plus, the unification of all materials' and elements' shape, colour, grain, and gloss, maximize continuity and aesthetic cleanliness. Tactility, too, is minded with the utmost consideration. Keen eyes will appreciate the minimized gaps between buttons and switches; again, furthering Corolla Hatchback's sophisticated character.
The standard amenity list is as impressive as the cabin's aesthetic. S grade is equipped with single-zone automatic climate control, 4.2' multi-information display and push-button start with three-door SmartKey system. An electronic parking brake, automatic up/down windows, and two front USB outlets are standard as well.
