2019 Toyota Corolla vs. compact hatchbacks: How they compare

New Corolla vs. Civic, Mazda3, Golf, Cruze and Impreza

So you've read what we thought about the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback.Well, now you must be wondering how that new 2019 Corolla stacks up with all the other hatchbacks. And, despite long thinking that hatchbacks were doomed, there are actually quite a lot of them these days. So many, in fact, that we couldn't fit them all in our space-limited comparison chart.

First Drive
2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback First Drive Review | Corolla of a different color

Not a hot hatch, but an enjoyable – even fun – commuter

This new Corolla could actually be owned by someone who cares about cars and driving. Perhaps not as their top priority in life or behind the wheel, but there's also enough here in terms of style, character and driver engagement to actually put the 2019 Corolla on the map for those with more discerning compact car tastes. And, moving beyond comparisons to that gold Corolla currently parked 23 inches from the curb across the street, the latest version is also a definite improvement over its immed

Spy Shots

It's the hatchback's mild-mannered sibling

We've already seen the Toyota Corolla hatchback and you'll be able to read about what it's like to drive April 30, but we still have yet to hear much about the sedan. That's a bit surprising, since the Corolla is Toyota's compact bread and butter, making up nearly 94 percent of the Corolla's almost 330,000 sales in 2017. We may not have much longer to wait, though, since the Corolla prototype in the spy shots above look pretty close to production. Notably, the heavy black plastic of the last pro

2019 VW Jetta vs. best-selling compact cars: How they compare on paper

We look at how the Jetta stacks up to the competition

As the brand's best-selling car, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta needs to be good to maintain its sales, if not grow them. We just drove it, and found the latest Jetta to be stylish, frugal, and decently priced, if not exciting. But we also wanted to see how it compares on paper to other cars in the segment. So we've assembled the specifications from the four best-selling compacts on the market in order of their sales starting with the best-selling Honda Civic, followed by the Toyota Corolla, Nissan S

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback: Plastic hatch and other fun facts

Who knew a Corolla could be so interesting?

Historically, the Toyota Corolla hasn't been associated with words like "interesting," "exciting" or anything resembling enthusiasm, with the obvious exception of the earlier rear-drive models. But the 2019 Corolla Hatchback seems different. It looks aggressive. It's going to be available with a manual. And since Toyota says that being fun-to-drive is t

Corolla hot hatch? Sporty Toyota Corolla Hatchback coming to New York

If it's not hot, it could be warm, anyway — and it gets a manual

When Toyota showed its new Auris hatchback at the Geneva Motor Show, we expected there to be an announcement about the car's eventual availability on the U.S. market under some other name. Earlier Aurises have been sold as Scion iMs and Corolla iMs. Now, at the New York International Auto Show, Toyota is introducing the car as a sporty Corolla Hatchback.
