The 2019 Toyota Corolla sedan is a budget compact, available for just over $19,000. It comes in six trim levels, one of which offers a choice between automatic and manual transmissions.
What's New for 2019
An all-new Corolla sedan is due later this year, but for now, Toyota’s veteran compact is available with a single gas engine and a limited choice of optional extras.
Choosing Your Toyota Corolla
The 2019 Corolla is a four-door sedan, powered by a 1.8-liter gas engine outputting 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. The LE Eco model generates 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque, using Toyota’s Valvematic technology to adjust engine airflow and reduce fuel consumption at higher speeds.
Every Corolla is fitted with a version of Toyota’s familiar continuously variable transmission (CVT) as standard, though the SE can be acquired with a six-speed manual transmission for a $1,220 premium. This knocks one mile per gallon off the EPA-estimated 28 miles per gallon city and 36 mpg highway recorded by most Corolla sedans.
The 2019 Toyota Corolla is as dependable and a no-nonsense economy car as ever. Pricier Corollas fail to justify their premium over the LE trim, which represents a good value compared to the poorly-equipped L model. Anyone doing significant amounts of highway driving should consider an LE Eco to capitalize on the fuel savings offered by its Valvematic engine.
