When the best keeps getting better, you know you’re on to a good thing. Toyota is well aware of that, and it shines through every athletic curve of the 2019 Toyota Corolla. It may have been a tough job to raise the standard set by the car’s predecessor, but Toyota has done it. And they have even made it look easy!

The 2019 Toyota Corolla quite literally puts the “rev” in revolution with this dynamic, game-changing car. Promising a whole new world of power and performance, this nimble vehicle offers one of Toyota’s most thrilling rides yet.

If you like a car that really holds its own, you’ll fall head over heels for the 2019 Toyota Corolla. Designed on Toyota’s much stiffer TNGA platform, the 2019 Toyota Corolla surges into the market with a stiffer, lighter structure for better handling, more fuel-efficient powertrains, a lower centre of gravity and sexier styling.  This savvy little beast introduces a completely new engine with a selection of two new transmissions. Both come paired with Toyota’s new Dynamic Force 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine that drives the front wheels and creates an impressive 168 horsepower and 151 lb-ft. of torque.

And that’s just the start.

 The 2019 Toyota Corolla raises the bar above and beyond when it comes to transmission design. The incredible fuel-efficient performance of the ground-breaking continuously variable transmission (CVT) model is so intelligent, it’s hard to believe it exists in 2019. Echoing a 10-speed automatic, this ridiculously clever system introduces yet another first to the long list of Toyota’s innovative creations. For the first time, the CVT model uses a single rear gear for first gear, then switches over to the CVT for everything else.

The result, in simple terms?

Much more “va-va-voom” in the acceleration!

The manual transmission, however, is just as sharp. Featuring an “IM” (Intelligent Manual) button, this talented little model automatically matches the engine speed when down-shifting, doing away with that jerky feeling passengers often feel during gear changes.

Performance aside, there is a whole spectrum of other remarkable improvements that feature in the 2019 Toyota Corolla. Looks-wise, there’s no doubt this car has leapt up the sex appeal ladder. Thanks to the new TNGA platform, the 2019 Toyota Corolla is longer, lower and wider than the Corolla IM, offering a newly sharp style that echoes its off-the-scale intelligence and personality. With its ample front grille, flared wheel arches and optional 18-inch wheels, the 2019 Toyota Corolla certainly makes an impact. That’s not forgetting to mention the short front and rear overhangs, the giant black plastic bumper insert, and dominating roof-mounted spoiler that are guaranteed to grab attention. Speaking of attention grabbing, the 2019 Toyota Corolla is even available in exclusive new blue, red and grey colours as well as the traditional subtle shades.

If you’re more of a “it’s what’s on the inside that counts” type of person, you’ll be well matched with this car’s comfortable, well designed interior. With its soft, enveloping seats, mammoth eight-inch central touch display, compatibility with Apple CarPlay and backup camera, the 2019 Toyota Corolla offers a modern play-den for anyone who likes to move with the world.

With enhanced power, better transmissions and stylish features that run laps around its predecessor, the 2019 Toyota Corolla leaves very little not to like, love and then love a little bit more.

Like we said, when the best keeps getting better, you know you’re on to a good thing. Hats off to you, Toyota – you’ve delivered once again.
