The 2019 Corolla Hatchback vs Competition

A hatchback vehicle can provide you with more cargo room and additional styling when compared to a standard sedan. The Toyota Corolla hatchback does just that, borrowing all of the great features from the sedan Corolla. The hatchback shape is not only unique, it is quite functional as well. It is often seen as a sort of niche market by those who have not driven one and experienced the great benefits of the added cargo space and passenger room.

The 2019 Toyota Corolla redefines the hatchback with innovative technology and features not seem on hatchbacks of the past. The Corolla hatchback, to simplicity, is a Corolla sedan with the added room. The hatchback version carries over all of the same equipment and features as the sedan making it an easy upgrade for those wanting a hatchback.

With new body styles come new competition. The Corolla sedan has its competitors, but with the hatchback, you get a new set of competition. Today we are going to look at a few of these competitors and see exactly how the Corolla hatchback stands out.

Toyota Corolla Hatchback Vs Volkswagen Golf

The ever popular Volkswagen Golf could possibly be one of the most famous hatchbacks of the past few years. Volkswagen is widely known for their attention to detail and extravagant features. While this may appeal to some people, we cannot ignore the most important features and this is where the Corolla hatchback really makes a name for itself. These features include:

  • Better Highway Fuel Economy (42 Highway Miles Per Gallon Vs 37 Highway Miles Per Gallon
  • More Horsepower ( 168 Horsepower Vs 147 Horsepower)
  • Smart Key Capability (Yes Vs No)

Toyota Corolla Hatchback Vs Civic Hatchback

One of the Corolla’s most popular rivals, the Honda Civic, makes a reappearance in its hatchback model giving the Corolla a run for its money. The Civic has always featured the latest technology and offered great fuel mileage across each of its trim levels. However, the Toyota Corolla has bested the Civic in several aspects on the 2019 hatchback model. These standout features include:

  • Better Fuel Efficiency (31 Miles Per Gallon Vs 29 Miles Per Gallon)
  • More Horsepower ( 168 Horsepower Vs 158 Horsepower)
  • More Torque (151 ft-lbs Vs 138 ft-lbs)

Toyota Corolla Hatchback Vs Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback

One of the newest hatchbacks to hit the scene over the past decade is the Chevrolet Cruze. The Cruze, much like the Corolla is offered in both a sedan and hatchback version to cater to many different consumers. As you may know, Chevrolet has always been a Best In Class leader in many of its vehicle classes. The hatchback is no exception providing great competition for the Corolla. As the closest comparison on this list, the Cruze is one to watch in the coming years. For 2019 however, the Corolla stands out with the following features:

  • Better Interior Accents (Leather Vs Urethane)
  • More Horsepower ( 168 Horsepower Vs 153 Horsepower)
  • Larger Interior Cargo Volume (18.0 Cubic Feet Vs 14.8 Cubic Feet)
