GALLERY: 2019 Toyota Corolla detailed for Europe – three body styles; four powertrains, including hybrids

Toyota Europe has released a large photo gallery of the new Toyota Corolla in all three body styles (Sedan, Hatchback and Touring Sports), along with specifications that will be available for the region. The new Corolla rides on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-C platform, and comes with a choice of four powertrains.

The first is a 1.8 litre hybrid with 122 PS and 142 Nm of torque, which consists of a 2ZR-FXE four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine, an electric motor (72 PS/163 Nm), nickel-metal hydride battery and an e-CVT. This system is offered across all three body styles, although the Hatchback and Touring Sports use a lithium-ion battery instead.

With this powertrain, the Hatchback, Sedan and Touring Sports will take 10.9, 11, and 11.1 seconds respectively to complete the century sprint. The Hatchback also offers the lowest fuel consumption at 3.3 l/100 km and CO2 emissions at 76 g/km (NEDC).

For those who want a bit more power, there’s also a 2.0 litre hybrid that is available only in the Hatchback and Touring Sports, offering 180 PS and 190 Nm. It employs a M20A-FXS Dynamic Force four-cylinder mill, a more substantial electric motor (109 PS and 202 Nm) and a six-speed Sequential Shiftmatic automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddles.

Zero to 100 km/h times for the Hatchback and Touring Sports are 7.9 and 8.1 seconds respectively, with both consuming 3.7 l/100 km and spewing as little as 84 g/km of CO2. All hybrid models, regardless if they are the 1.8 or 2.0 litre versions, have a top speed of 180 km/h. In EV drive mode, the 2.0 litre hybrid models top out at 115 km/h.

Away from the hybrids, there is a 8NR-FTS 1.2 litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 114 PS and 185 Nm (Hatchback and Touring Sports only) and 1.6 litre naturally-aspirated four-pot delivering 132 PS and 159 Nm (Sedan only).

The turbo mill can be had with either Toyota’s iMT (Intelligent Manual Transmission) six-speed manual or a CVT. The former comes with zero to 100 km/h times of 9.3 and 9.6 seconds respectively – the lower figure being the Hatchback – as well as a top speed of 200 km/h. Meanwhile, CVT-equipped models are slower in the run – the Hatchback takes 10 seconds and the Touring Sports at 10.3 seconds – and max out at 195 km/h. Claimed fuel consumption is as low as 5.2 l/100 km.

The 1.6 litre unit is offered with a six-speed manual or a Multidrive S CVT, and the performance for both transmissions differs yet again. The manual is quickest to 100 km/h (9.7 seconds) and has the higher top speed (200 km/h), while the CVT takes 10.2 seconds and is out of puff at 190 km/h.

Focusing on the available equipment, three LED headlamp types are featured – triple LED parabola, a bi-beam LED with Automatic High Beam and a unit with Adaptive Automatic High Beam (Hatchback and Touring Sports only). There’s also a 10-inch head-up display, seven-inch multi-info instrument cluster display, eight-inch central infotainment touchscreen, wireless phone charger, panoramic sunroof, handsfree tailgate access and various connected services in the kit list.

Come in as standard across the range is the Toyota Safety Sense suite of safety and driver assist systems, which include Pre-Collision System (PCS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Road Sign Assist (RSA), Automatic High Beam (AHB), Adaptive Cruiser Control (ACC), Lane Trace Assist (LTA) and Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
