2019 Corolla Hybrid Hatch

2019 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Hatch

Most of the trouble in the world is caused by people wanting to be important. (T.S. Eliot).  I can’t help but think that the rising fuel prices and other costs motorists have to deal with are caused by what T.S. Eliot describes as people who want to be important.  Hybrids are a great way of cutting your fuel costs, particularly if you do a fair few miles in urban environments.  New from Toyota is the latest Corolla Hybrid Hatchback; and quite a nice looker it is!

The 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatch offers improved comfort, greater refinement and a premium feel with an all-new interior design that reflects the bold styling of the exterior.  I love the new headlight design that almost adds as a border accent to the front nose.  The premium feel is carried throughout the cabin with a variety of materials and finishes including silver metallic and piano black trim highlights, exposed stitching and soft-touch surfaces.  Being a hybrid Corolla doesn’t mean that you miss out on any of the new Corolla style.

It’s an all new Corolla Hatchback with an athletic, muscular and yet sophisticated styling.  The lower grille emphasises the increased width the new Corolla dimensions provide.  Also, the LED headlights wrap around into the front guards making quite a striking visual impact.  The rear of the car is more rounded, strengthening the visual relationship between front and rear while a rear upper spoiler completes the new racy looks.

Toyota Safety Sense is a package of active safety systems designed to keep you and your passengers protected in all types of traffic and in the event of a serious collision.  New 2019 Corolla Hatchbacks are some of the safest cars in their class thanks to a wide range of excellent safety features you’ll find in cars twice its price.  Toyota equip the new Corolla Hybrids with features like automatic high beam, Lane Departure Alert, auto emergency braking, pedestrian detection, dynamic radar cruise control and a suite of airbags which all add up to help make the brand new Corolla Hybrid Hatch a strong and safe choice.

There is plenty of space in the new Toyota Corolla Hybrid Hatch, with rear seat legroom very good and seat comfort excellent.  Boasting over 500 litres of luggage space behind the new Hybrid hatchback’s rear seats makes for the ability to carry plenty of schoolbags and groceries should the need arise.

The upgraded Hybrid Synergy Drive system in the 2019 Corolla complements the car’s new found dynamic capability while providing the optimal balance between fuel economy, low emissions and performance.  The latest self-charging petrol hybrid electric powertrain from the Prius is utilised in the Corolla hybrid, and the 1.8 litre petrol engine has a combined system output of 90 kW.  A combined fuel consumption of 4.2 litres/100 km is impressive, yet better fuel efficiency is gained with a change from the required 95 octane fuel to 91 octane in the new generation model.

On the road, the new hatchback handles extremely well, with plenty of grip, control and steering precision.  Road bumps are soaked up very nicely, and inside the cabin outside noises are well muted.

Various accessories are available for new car buyers to make life with your new Toyota Corolla ECVT Hybrid a little more suited for your lifestyle.  Things like a cargo liner, carpet or rubber floor mats, seat covers, headlight and bonnet protectors, weather shields and tow bars are small additions that can add up to make a big difference for every day driving.

Two Hybrid Corolla Hatchback models are available.  The GX model comes equipped with plenty of nice features.  Dual-zone climate control, touchscreen entertainment, a six-speaker audio, satellite navigation, smart entry, push button start, LED DRLs and parabola headlights keep the GX in the premium hatch league.

For around $5.5k more, the new Corolla Hatch ZR Hybrid model comes equipped with just a few more gizmos and luxury items.  Things like Head-Up display, leather and suede upholstery, an 8-speaker JBL audio system, a Qi wireless device charger, Bi-beam headlights and LED front fog lights are standout features that make the ZR just that littler bit more luxury focused and upmarket in taste.

Even though the launch of the new Corolla was a few months back, I’m still grinning about the 2019 exterior design.  I love it!  Racy, striking and pleasantly different from everything else, the new Toyota Corolla Hybrid hatchback has plenty of panache.
