The 2019 Toyota Corolla version may come to us with an update which will address some of its past issues. But since there are not many things that could possibly be changed for the model we can only predict that they will merely tighten a few things up. One of the problems will be addressing the expansion of safety technology which will help the Corolla get even better rates than it had before. But besides that, the Corolla is a nice looking and well-dressed vehicle allowing us care-free commuting ability. But the rise of the competition does not do it good, so dealing with some of the issues and creating a better setup is crucial and is what the makers in Toyota are aiming for 2019.
The Corolla brand is one of the more lucrative models that the Japanese automaker has produced. In fact, the car has been around for approximately 50 years already and during that period has managed to sell more than 40 million cars. It went through 11 generations and also offered various special and very memorable forms that will certainly be remembered.
The growing class of compact vehicles demands that the 2019 Toyota Corolla expands its offer and receives a freshening up so the model can manage to keep up with the competition that it faces. It needs to do that by upping the ante on technology as well. Going with the times is very important in the automotive industry and since Corolla has been lacking on some modern takes, they can fix them here.
Based on the currently available pictures, the 2019 Corolla looks very engaging and interesting and will certainly be a very good looking model onward. But there are a number of details that have not been released or are still covered with camo as the camouflaged version is the only thing that we are able to see from the spy photos. Nevertheless, it could be a wonderful new addition to the Toyota lineup. We cannot wait for the release date to come and here are our thoughts in this review.
When is the Release Date for the 2019 Toyota Corolla Going to be?
The new 2019 Toyota Corolla vehicle is expected to drop in around a year. In fact it will most likely be offered by the end of next year as they are comprising their offer. The model is merely going to be updated and we do not see to big updates to be slanted now so it may take even less to create the new version. But still it will require them some time to make the necessary adjustments. Since there are no exact elements given the assumptions about its release are going to be made when more of the details are known. So as they release more and more information about the car we can hope to see newer details being given about it. All in all, our expectations are still set for the 2019 Toyota Corolla to make its debut by sometime next year.
What is the Price for the 2019 Toyota Corolla?
When it comes to the compact segment, the 2019 Toyota Corolla will still be one of or the more affordable models. In fact it will probably be priced around the same as it is now, with perhaps a few tweaks. The price will start at 19,000 dollars for starters, but the model may enhance in terms of the price and we may get to see an expanded price range for the elements that could be offered additionally. Also higher trims are going to be available and these will also inflate the price a bit. But still, the affordability of the car is its stronger sides so do not expect the people from Toyota to make the price too large.
Exterior Updates and Changes
There are probably only going to be a few updates made for the 2019 Toyota Corolla model. It is essentially the same car for now which could do with a little bit more reinvigorating. The model has been made to resemble the Camry in some of its features and next year we also get some new trims for the Corolla, namely the XSE and 50th Anniversary Special Edition. The base Corolla models will include the L, LE and XLE trims which have now been expanded a little bit. The sporty lineup consist of S and SE trims which will noticeably have some sporty lines and curvy features to them.
The Corolla 50th Anniversary Limited Edition will be much different than the other cars. Essentially it is an SE model but with 17-inch alloy wheels and bundles of gloss-black additions. It also offers three special colors only for this model to choose from, the Black Cherry, Blizzard White, and Classic Silver. The base version will make all kinds of elements available which will tweak the car a bit and make it sportier. Modern elements are also expected to be made and those will help the model stay fresh a bit longer when it comes to the style. Much of the 2019 Toyota Corolla update is still up in the air but our take is that they will soon make much of it known and available.
The 2019 Toyota Corolla will most likely take the same approach for the inside as it did for the outside. It will essentially be an updated version which provides more technological additions and will make things a little bit smoother. The XLE trim, which is the top commuter version, will add the most standard kind of updates which will update its technical abilities. Expect an upgraded center display and also paddle shifters for this trim. The base version now sports a 6.1-inch infotainment screen and these might get updated as well and we get a larger one, but most of the additions are going to be saved for higher trim levels.
The Anniversary Limited Edition also takes the best out of this update and adds a black interior with “Black Cherry” contrast stitching, 7.0-inch high-resolution touchscreen, dash and door accents, a moonroof, special floor mats and badges to help it distinguish it even further as an anniversary model.
The 2019 Toyota Corolla will certainly keep the style of the inside similar to what we had so far. It is going to be the same in some way but also different. This means that we are going to get a kind of a change that will reshape the car a bit but mostly retain the same elements. Other changes are going to include all kinds of new trims and materials which will make things comfortable.
Engine-wise, the 2019 Toyota Corolla will most likely make a carryover of the existing powertrains from its previous model. These are in fact two 1.8-liter inline-4 engines which in its base form makes 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque while its secondary form outputs 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of twist. But we are not sure if the Corolla will still operate using the 4-speed automatic transmission. It will add a continuously variable transmission (CVT) this time and update things that way. But there are certain possibilities which state that the powertrains are going to be updated and that the engines are going to add some more power. These are still to be confirmed and they will probably require more engineering, so another possible solution could be adding a completely new powertrain. But there are no current candidates for them to do that so it still remains to be seen which one could be used here. All in all, the 2019 Toyota Corolla will look to make certain changes happen.
0-60 mph Acceleration and Specs
The two engine versions for the upcoming 2019 Toyota Corolla are going to mean two different acceleration abilities. The base version will be able to get to 0-60 mph in 10.5 seconds with the secondary stronger one doing so in 8.5 seconds. But it will still depend on the changes if these rates remain the same. If they decide to incorporate some bigger changes for the powertrain they might shave off a few seconds off. But our impression is that it will not make the cars too powerful so the acceleration ability is going to be close to this one. The top speed for both remains the same at 110 mph and it will probably be kept limited to this amount no matter the changes that get to be introduced.
Fuel Economy Characteristics
The 2019 Toyota Corolla model is probably going to transfer the fuel efficiency as the current car is pretty much a low consume already. It does not have a hybrid version as this technology is meant for Toyota’s other brands like the Prius and the Camry. But this one still manages to offer great rates even in the base form and it even has an Eco version as well. This gives the EPA rating to the LE Eco trim of 30 mpg city, 40 highway, 34 combined. Btu if we take into account non-Eco options we still get a pretty good rating which range between 27/35/30 mpg and 28/36/32 mpg for the available Corolla cars. There are no words on making improvements here and there is certainly not going to be a hybrid powertrain included, so the new car will not improve so much when it comes to the fuel economy changes.
What is the Size of the Car?
The dimensions of the newly updated 2019 Toyota Corolla will not change. This model will retain its characteristics when it comes to size. The model has a full length of 183.1 inches and a 106.3 inch wheelbase. The height stays at 57.3 inches and the width is 69.9 inches. The inside is still quite spacious offering us 97 cu ft of interior volume while the cargo bay is 13 cu ft. Although some aesthetic parts of the car are bound to improve and change, the size of the car is not one of them. They are staying true to the already established formula that they have.
Safety Specs Expansions
The new 2019 Toyota Corolla will introduce some new active safety features to its new car. These are going to be transferred from the Prius models and this also makes the Toyota Safety Sense-P safety package available for this car. The active safety features which are now present here are the forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and lane-departure warning with active lane control to help steer drivers back into their lane, while pedestrian detection is included within automatic emergency braking option. Also new is the Toyota’s Safety Sense-P system.
The Corolla will still be using some of its old and standard specs which are eight airbags with driver’s side knee bag and a front passenger seat cushion bag, driver and front passenger front and side airbags, side-curtain bags and a rearview camera. This way the 2019 version will see to it that they expand the safety and attract new audiences with a newly announced safety offer. They are maybe using other vehicles for inspiration but it helps to have those at your disposal.
The compact segment is one of the most competitive ones and the 2019 Toyota Corolla will do well with the changes and updates that are planned for it. The models which are competing here are numerous but since the popularity of Corolla is already great we will see how much of an impact will the update for the car have. The cars included here are the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra. This is probably the segment which has the most competition so far. There are rivals left and right and one cannot afford to make a slip up. This is one of the reasons why a Corolla model is being made and why they see it as important to introduce it. It can bring us a new offer which will prompt other makers to become equally better.
