The all-new 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is a head-turner (in a good way), bringing some sorely needed styling updates, inside and out, versus the two 2018 models bearing the Corolla name, the sedan and the Corolla iM hatchback, previously sold as the Scion iM. Though it's easy to get caught up in those more cosmetic updates, don't let the new clothes distract you from the more significant updates to the 2019's technology and safety offerings.
The Corolla Hatchback isn't based on the current Corolla sedan or the Corolla iM, which it replaces (that sound you hear right now is nobody crying because that car also left much to be desired). It has much more in common with the European 2019 Toyota Auris, with a new platform and different enough powertrains and new technology to be considered its own entity. Toyota currently declines to comment on whether the Hatchback is a reliable preview of an updated sedan, but it's logical and likely. If the sedan adopts the Corolla Hatchback's changes, it will be a dramatically better car.
I headed to Toyota's national media drive in San Diego to drive several new variants of the Corolla Hatchback to see how all those changes play out on the road. (Per company policy, Cars.com pays for its airfare and lodging at such automaker-hosted events.) The 2019 Corolla Hatchback will be offered in two trim levels, SE and XSE.
