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. A redesigned Corolla sedan debuts for 2020.

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.

Bad experience !

15 days after I bought the car, I was heading to work and I received a phone call from my wife that the car it won’t start I don’t know why! And then she requested a neighbor a jump starter to start the car. Later on I took the car for battery testing and it failed. I went to three locations, I couldn’t believe what happened.because, It Has only 24,000 mileage,with Toyota‘s original battery on it.then the results came bad battery! So, I ended up buying a new one.pathetic!!!

3.1

Speed control

I have to agree with another review. Yes the cruise control needs to be addressed. The car WILL SPEED UP 5MPH BEFORE IT DOWNSHIFTS. i spoke to a Toyota mechanic. He stated it was the band transmission. NOT THE CRUISE CONTROL. Who pays the ticket when I get stopped doing 60 in a 45. Going over an overpass... Think. Up hill. Fast. Down.

4.9

The best

I’ve been driving Toyota’s since 2009 and I love Toyota Corollas I don’t think I will ever buy anything else but Toyota they are the best
