2019 Toyota Corolla review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Toyota Corolla?

The value-oriented Toyota Corolla is a front-wheel-drive compact sedan that seats five. Power comes from a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a standard continuously variable automatic transmission. Competitors include the Honda Civic, Chevrolet Cruze and Hyundai Elantra.

What’s New on the 2019 Toyota Corolla?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2019 Toyota Corolla Are Most Important?

A long list of standard active safety features includes forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with steering assist, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam headlights. Other standard features include LED headlights, air conditioning, a touchscreen multimedia system with iPod connectivity, Bluetooth streaming audio and a 60/40-split, folding backseat.

Should I Buy the 2019 Toyota Corolla?

The Corolla is a spacious compact sedan with comfortable front seats, and it has an efficient, responsive drivetrain. A few characteristics, however, drag down the overall experience; ride quality and steering feel aren’t great, and the four-cylinder engine’s power at highway speeds is modest. The Corolla also lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, two relatively common connectivity features. You might be able to find better deals on the 2019 Corolla as dealers look to clear their lots of them, but we’d recommend also driving the redesigned 2020 model to see which one you prefer.
