Many different facets of the Toyota Corolla will be discussed in the coming sections, including the performance specifications, the interior measurements, and the active safety features. Once you feel you have a grasp on this sedan, we’ll be happy to arrange a test drive!
What’s Under the Hood of the Toyota Corolla?
Creating a Toyota Corolla that fits your everyday lifestyle is simple thanks to the diverse performance specifications you can select from.
For example, the same engine can undergo mechanical tweaks to generate separate outputs. The 1.8L 4-cylinder churns out 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque in base form. If you want a little more juice, the same engine can be altered to generate 140 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque. The choices don’t stop here, however.
Various driving modes are available, giving you the chance to customize your on-road behavior. The modes include Normal, Sport, and ECO. Selecting your transmission is another key choice, although both the 6-speed manual transmission and continuously variable transmission are viable options.
How Much Room is in the Cabin?
Despite its diminutive stature, the 2019 Toyota Corolla carves out plenty of interior space for yourself, your passengers, and everyone’s cargo.
The headroom, for instance, measures 38.3 inches up front and 37.1 inches in the rear seats. Hip room also checks out favorably, measuring 53 inches in front and 43.9 inches in the rear. Lastly, tall passengers will appreciate the legroom at both levels thanks to 42.3 inches up front and 41.4 inches in the rear.
Overall, the Toyota Corolla is a comfortable place for five passengers to relax. If you need a bit of cargo room, open up the trunk and 13 cubic feet of space will be available to you!
