Replacing the 2018 Corolla iM is the all-new redesigned 2019 Corolla Hatchback. Built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, the Corolla Hatchback combines driving enjoyment and superior efficiency with sporty exterior styling and a premium interior.

New Powertrains, Better Efficiency

A new four-cylinder Dynamic Force engine improves peak horsepower by 31 to 168 and from 125 to 151 lb-ft of torque. It is also more fuel efficient than before for a best-in-class combined 6.7 L per 100 km in the CVT model, better than the Honda Civic Hatchback, Mazda3 Sport, and Volkswagen Golf.

Toyota offers two new transmissions with the Corolla Hatchback. The Direct Shift CVT comes with a sport mode, available paddle shifters, and it’s also the first passenger vehicle CVT in the world with a launch gear for improved efficiency and responsiveness at lower speeds. For drivers who prefer a stickshift, there’s an all-new six-speed intelligent manual with rev-matching control on both downshifts and upshifts.

The Benefits of TNGA

Wider and longer than the iM, the new model boasts an aggressive stance with a 2-cm lower centre of gravity for improved performance and handling. The body is also 60% more rigid than the previous model to optimize stability and ride comfort while minimizing road noise and vibration. With an advanced front strut/rear multi-link suspension, going over potholes and bumps on Alberta’s roads has never been smoother.
