The new 2019 Toyota Corolla has been redesigned and has more character and appeal than ever before. It features new technology and styling of its own that buyers in Harrisburg and Reading will appreciate. Whether you are commuting around town, or traveling on a long road trip, the Corolla Hatchback gets you where you need to go, all while having a little fun behind the wheel.
What are the Available Trims for the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback?
The 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback has two available trim levels: The base SE and XSE to fit the needs of customers in Harrisburg and Bethlehem.
SE - The SE is armed with standard equipment that includes modern LED headlights and taillights, 16-inch alloy wheels, heated power mirrors, an electronic ignition, and a Smart Key which can always remain in your pocket. Inside, you’ll find an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, two USB ports, split-folding rear seats, a tilt-telescoping steering wheel wrapped in leather, and 6-speaker audio system with App Suite and Apple CarPlay. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Toyota without Toyota's Safety Sense 2.0 package to provide worry-free driving for buyers in Allentown. The automatic transmission trims will have a few more features compared to the manual gearbox trims. The starting price for the SE with a manual gearbox will be approximately $21,000 while the CVT model will be around $22,000.
XSE - The XSE builds on the standard features of the SE, and adds leather seats for a more elegant look and feel, that can be heated for those cold winter days in Reading and Hazelton. You’ll also find an 8-way power driver's seat for ultimate comfort control and dual climate control to allow passengers to tailor temperatures to their liking. The wheels have been upgraded to 18-inch alloy wheels, and included is blind spot monitoring to prevent other drivers from colliding with vehicles in their blind spot. The starting price for the XSE with a manual gearbox will be approximately $ 24,000 while the CVT version starts at $25,000.
What are the Performance Features of the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback?
Both trim levels are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 168 hp and 151 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine can be connected to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission (CVT) to spin the front wheels. Either combination will provide excellent acceleration and overall performance for your daily needs in Hazleton. Unlike some other CVT's, this one was designed with a 1st gear for good low-speed response and takeoff at stops. The CVT also comes with steering wheel paddles to allow shifting through its 10 simulated driving speeds. The new 6-speed manual gearbox with Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) technology is very impressive and seems to be the best fit for the Corolla’s engine. The technology makes any driver shift like a pro because it automatically senses downshifts and upshifts and matches engine RPM's accordingly. This ensures smooth shifting at all speeds. The steering feels natural and is firm and responsive. The ride quality is excellent and quiet due in part to a new rear multilink suspension system. Fuel economy for the manual gearbox on both trims is 28 mpg city/37 highway. The CVT for both trims is rated at 30 mpg city/38 highway.
What Safety Features Come with the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback?
No matter which trim you choose, both Corolla Hatchback models will provide the latest safety aids, airbags, and other features to keep you and your family safe at all times. The 2019 Corolla Hatchback comes standard with a forward collision avoidance system with automatic emergency braking, dynamic radar cruise control to maintain speed and direction, lane tracing assist equipment, lane departure alert if you or other drivers start to drift into other lanes, and automatic high beam headlights to ensure you have adequate lighting in dark conditions. The Corolla Hatchback also comes with pedestrian and cyclist avoidance system with automatic emergency braking, just another way Toyota works to keep the roads in Allentown and Bethlehem safe.
