2019 Toyota Corolla Reviews -Interior, Exterior, Engine, Release Date, and Price

This year certainly seems to be one for surprises and the 2019 Toyota Corolla certainly has not let us down as far as surprises go; for one, Toyota Corolla is one of the few cars that are getting launched in July rather than by the end of the year and for another it still manages to hold on to its diminutive size. 

The hatchback, for all intents and purposes, does not seem to have changed much from the last variant until you take a closer look under the hood then it becomes apparent that the car, despite how it looks had indeed undergone some major changes.  The hatchback is the first one to get launched and you can expect the sedan to make it to the market later this year.

This small diminutive car is indeed quite popular as it is more affordable and more to the point,  it is easy to drive around, easy to handle and change gears, and quite fast as well.  Let’s take a closer look at the 12th generation of the Toyota Corolla right away.

2019 Toyota Corolla Reviews

The 2019 Toyota Corolla is finally here, the good news is that both the front and rear sides are expressive without too much change for the overall design to start jarring. This model will initially be available in both the SE and XSE Trim levels, which makes the car look sportier and the size certainly helps it to do just that.

It also comes with trendy colors which certainly makes it stand out from its earlier models;  If we talk about Engine details of 2019 Toyota Corolla it comes with a 2.0 liter inline 4 powers along with 186 horsepower which is indeed a much-needed improvement over its earlier model. 

You can either use the 6-speed manual or go for the CTV and yes, the 2019 Toyota Corolla comes with enhanced CTV as well; that can be a drawback for some in which case, you can always stick with the 6-speed manual.


The overall design for the 2019 Toyota Corolla is indeed a much-needed improvement over the last model; although it follows the same premise as other automakers about expressive exteriors it certainly does not go overboard with the same which is indeed much needed. So other than sporting trendier colors, with better trim, there’s not much change on the exterior; the grille is not reworked too much which can indeed be jarring for the small sized car.

The overall design is pleasing on the eye and certainly does not resemble some anime, for which Toyota owners would indeed be glad.


The 2019 Toyota Corolla comes with sleeker LED headlights, a sharper look than the earlier models. This new model also comes with a better looking lower fascia which is after given the size of the car itself. There are more creases on the side of the body and apart from this, is the fact that rearmost window which was the norm in the earlier model has gone AWOL which is good news indeed.


The interiors are as spacious as it can get with a small sized car with hardly much change other than the slightly larger spacious front area and a similarly sized cargo area as well.

The rear area is a tad short which may not suit tall people and they may have to cramp a bit to sit in the rear. But overall the improvements over the previous model is indeed much welcomed, especially the advanced safety features, emergency braking, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, the 8-inch touchscreen on the dashboard and much more.
