From its debut appearance on U.S. shores in 1966, the Toyota Corolla has been the go-to choice for anyone in search of an efficient and user-friendly compact car. The 2019 Toyota Corolla is no different, offering buyers a compelling blend of safety, comfort and efficiency, along with excellent affordability. Not much has changed since last year’s model, but there are plenty of great reasons to make the 2019 model your next vehicle.
- Great Looks
If you were expecting a bland and boring vehicle, you certainly won’t get one from the 2019 Toyota Corolla. The Corolla’s striking front fascia features a bold grille and distinctive, sharply angled headlights that help create an aggressive and assertive design. The SE trim ups the ante with unique 17-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler.
- Plenty of Space
The Corolla also features a spacious interior that comfortably seats 5 adults. Rear passengers will also be impressed with the compact vehicle’s 41.4 inches of rear legroom and 37.1 inches of rear headroom. Getting in and out of the Corolla is also a breeze thanks to its wide door openings, tall door frames and welcoming step-in height.
- Plenty of Tech Features
The 2019 Toyota Corolla is also bristling with tech, from the innovative and easy-to-use Entune™ infotainment system to the standard integrated backup camera and Multi-Information Display, which lets you keep track of current fuel economy, lane departure system settings and more. The advanced voice recognition system lets you access many of Entune’s features via its supported voice commands.
You’ll also benefit from the Toyota Safety Sense™ P suite of advanced driver-assistive safety features, included as standard on the Corolla. One of these features, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, uses an in-vehicle camera and front-mounted radar to monitor vehicles ahead and automatically slow down or even apply the brakes to prevent collisions.
- Available Manual Transmission
For those who love to take charge of their driving experience, the 2019 Corolla SE comes available with a 6-speed manual transmission. You’ll also get a rev matching feature that further enhances the sporty compact’s performance, letting you get the most out of the Corolla’s 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine. Don’t forget that the standard CVT also comes with available paddle shifters so you can make lightning-fast gear changes without taking your hands off the wheel.
- Standard LED Headlights
While LED headlights are an optional feature on other vehicles, the 2019 Corolla offers bi-LED headlights as standard equipment. Combined with Automatic High Beams that adjust automatically to aid drivers without blinding oncoming vehicles, this forward-thinking feature gives you the upper hand when it comes to nighttime visibility on dark roads.
