Toyota Replaces Corolla iM with the All-New Toyota Corolla Hatchback

June 20th, 2019 by

Raising The Bar Even Further

The Toyota Corolla iM was widely considered to be a solid choice in the crowded and highly competitive compact hatchback class. It was spacious, efficient and reliable. However, “solid” wasn’t quite good enough in Toyota’s relentless pursuit of automotive excellence. This is why Toyota has introduced the new Toyota Corolla Hatchback. The Toyota Corolla Hatchback excels in all aspects of automotive design and immediately debuts at the top of the compact hatchback class. The most notable enhancements that drivers will see in the Toyota Corolla Hatchback are in the areas of safety, performance, and efficiency.

Drivers looking for a new Toyota compact hatchback at a Columbus, GA car dealership can find the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback at Rivertown Toyota. Come in for a test drive today.

Staying Safe On The Road

The Toyota Corolla Hatchback is one of the safest compact hatchbacks on the road today. It gets excellent all-around crash test ratings. It also has a standard package of safety features called Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0. The driver aids included in Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 are:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Alert With Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection

These driver aids work together to seamlessly to enhance the safety of the driving experience.

Sporty Performance

The Toyota Corolla Hatchback has further improved performance over the 2018 Toyota Corolla iM’s already sporty driving dynamics. The Toyota Corolla Hatchback has a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine making 168 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque. This is 31 more horsepower and 25 lb.-ft of torque more than the 1.8L engine in the old Toyota Corolla iM. This is a significant increase in such a compact and light car. Motorists that have driven both the Toyota Corolla iM and the Toyota Corolla Hatchback will immediately notice that the Toyota Corolla Hatchback is much quicker.

The transmissions available on the Toyota Corolla Hatchback are similar to those offered on the 2018 Corolla iM. Its standard transmission is a 6-speed manual that offers an exceptional degree of driver control. The advanced Toyota CVT transmission will no doubt be a popular option, as well.
