2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback To Repeat Chevy Cruze Mistake?

By  | 

It is official. Toyota has made it known that they will be spicing up their line-up with more exciting vehicles in the near future and one of them will be a hatchback variant of the Corolla.

Also dubbed as the Corolla Hatchback, the vehicle will not only have a sporty appearance but also a performance that can attract the mass-market. Today, new information on the Corolla Hatchback has surfaced and it led the hype into a decline.

This cannot be avoided as Toyota has revealed that the Corolla Hatchback will have 168hp and 151ft-lbs of torque to offer from a naturally aspirated engine. The numbers are decent but far from being as attractive as its rivals in the same segment.

The only comparable vehicle on this front is the Chevrolet Cruze and we have seen how the compact car from GM has never been able to acquire good monthly sales. Will this be the outcome for the Toyota Corolla Hatchback.
