2019 Toyota Corolla vs 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

If you are a fan of the Toyota brand, and especially the Corolla, you now face one tiny problem; should you get the 2019 Corolla, or the 2019 Corolla Hatchback? We already know that hatchbacks generally have more room, so what makes the Corolla stay in the game, instead of being completely passed up for the Corolla Hatchback? We’re about to find out.

For the purposes of this comparison, we’ll be taking a look at the lowest trims of each vehicle. That means we’ll look at the 2019 Toyota Corolla L, and the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback SE. This way, if you like what you see on one of the models, you’ll know where exactly we pulled everything from. Now, let’s take a look at what makes the Corolla sedan a good option for anyone looking for a new car.

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback SE

$19,620 Starting MRSP $20,910

Advantages of the 2019 Toyota Corolla

So, while you may not get quite as much space in a normal sedan as you would a hatchback, there are some perks of driving the Corolla sedan over the Corolla Hatchback. Many of these perks come in the form of more options. For example, you’ll have 6 trim levels to choose from on the Corolla; L, LE, LE Eco, XLE, SE, and XSE.

For the Corolla Hatchback, however, you’ll only have 2 trims to choose between; the SE, and the XSE. Likewise, you’ll have more options with technology features. While both the keyless ignition and the sunroof are not available on this particular trim of the Corolla, you’ll be able to have them on different trims, whereas these particular features are not available at all on the Corolla Hatchback.

So, you’ll be able to potentially have more features on the Corolla, with the added perk that the starting MRSP on the base trim of the Corolla is lower than the starting MRSP on the Corolla Hatchback’s base trim.
