2019 Toyota Corolla vs 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback 

Split screen images of the 2019 Toyota Corolla and the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

The 2019 Toyota Corolla and the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback are now both available at Toyota dealerships nationwide including the Serra Toyota dealership in Birmingham. Car shoppers will recognize the 2019 Corolla as it hasn’t changed from the previous outgoing 2018 configuration, but they may not recognize the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback that is brand-new for the 2019 model year.   

The 2019 Corolla offers a full lineup with six available trim levels and a base model with a more-affordable starting price tag, so it’s a great choice for drivers who don’t have a lot of hauling needs and want to stick to a smaller budget. The 2019 Corolla Hatchback offers just two trims but they are well-equipped and its cargo area is a lot more versatile which is appealing for drivers who occasionally need to haul larger items or equipment.

Passenger and Cargo Space Specs  

The 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback variant was created to offer drivers a Corolla with a roomier cargo space so, naturally, drivers are going to find more space for belongings inside the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. It offers up to 17.8 cubic feet of space behind the second-row seats and even more when they are folded flat compared to the 2019 Toyota Corolla trunk space that offers just 13.0 cubic feet.   

However, to accommodate the added cargo space dimensions, the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback interior was reduced slightly, and the traditional 2019 Toyota Corolla comes out on top in terms of space for passengers to stretch out. If you plan on hauling adults in the rear seats, the 2019 Toyota Corolla with up to 97.5 cubic feet of total passenger space may be the better buy, though adults should be comfortable in the rear seats of the 2019 Corolla Hatchback for shorter trips.
