Interestingly, the first time since the 2018-2019 Toyota Corolla is the 10th generation of the bestselling original name is used only for the sedan, the hatchback has received a completely new 2018-2019 Toyota Auris name and a completely different design of the body, similar to the appearance of 2018-2019 Toyota Yaris.

Let us return to our party to review 2018-2019 Toyota Corolla sedan and look at the car as it is offered in the market in and (after a full renovation in 2010).

The harmonious and flowing lines of the body on the one hand demonstrate friendliness and totally devoid of aggression, on the other hand show the solidity and solemnity. The narrow headlights with broken lines and sharp edges nicely highlight the trim of the radiator grille with two chrome slats. The massive body of the front bumper with large slotted lower vozduhozabonika organically supplement spotlights protivotumanok wind and bright lip. Smooth surface of the bonnet is adorned with stylish splashes, forming the transition to the front wings.

Sides of body sedan – with smooth transitions panels. There is a desire to touch the car and pat the metal surface in order to make sure that the machine is of a hard material, not soft and airy fabric. So harmoniously, tidy and looks weightless profile Japanese sedan. Looking at Corolla idea how designers create from clay the future of the auto body, gently vyleplivaya and bringing to perfection body panels and wheel arches ideal radii. Despite the image of harmony kings sedan 2018-2019 Toyota has correct and convenient for planting in interior doorways, a flat roof line, high sill side glass, door handles for a comfortable grip usual, large and thus netyazhelovesnoy stern.


The back of the body seems simple and fresh. Unable to give a stern bright personality or original headlights overall lighting with a complex combination of colors or a powerful rear bumper with aerodynamic elements and additional reflectors. Practicality and functionality at the same time at a high level – a rectangular opening and a large luggage trunk lid with a vertical surface will provide convenient access to the trunk of a sedan that can take 450 liters of cargo.

External dimensions of the sedan 2018-2019 Toyota Corolla with 4545 mm long, 1760 mm wide, 1470 mm high, 2600 mm wheelbase, 150 mm ground clearance (clearance) are far from a record in class C, but thanks to the harmonious and proper proportions of the car looks more than their size. We catch myself thinking that the 2018-2019 Toyota Corolla – it’s like a little 2018-2019 Toyota Camry, at least outwardly. Drag coefficient of aerodynamic drag the sedan is 0.28 Cx.

The car body is made of durable and high-strength steel, high-quality anti-corrosion treatment is applied, but the paint quality is questionable. After 2-3 years of operation there are chips and scratches, Where did the Japanese quality – is unclear. In the opinion of the owners of the cabin noise insulation is not satisfactory, especially front and rear wheel arches.

  • The colors of enamel when buying a car, you can choose from base Pure White (white) and seven metallics: Ultra Silver (Silver), Ash Grey (Grey), Frost Blue (light blue), Island Blue (blue), Pacific Blue (dark blue ), Barcelona red (red) and Night Sky black (black).

sedan interior to match the exterior of the car – a modest, simple, but functional, comfortable and high quality. Soft plastics, gray cloth upholstery seats Trinket or Tatami, aluminum inserts on the center console, door panel and steering wheel. Against the background of classmates Ford Focus 3, of Opel the Astra J and Hyundai Elantra saloon 2018-2019 Toyota Corolla and a simple gray, but cozy, and even after a few years of operation looks soundly.

Chairs of the first row in the initial assembly heated, comfortable, but virtually devoid of lateral support. Profile of chairs, in our opinion, unfortunate, and if you do not notice this during short urban trips, then the long-term presence of the driver behind the wheel of body demands mercy and stop in order to stretch your back. The range of adjustment of seats in the first row provides a comfortable location of the driver and passenger growth up to 185 cm.

The steering wheel is trimmed in sport from the bottom and can be adjusted in height and depth. Optitron instrument panel with amber backlight (two radius inscribed on the center screen trip computer) not only looks stylish, but also offers excellent descriptiveness. The driver with a competent and correct placement of controls is not satisfactory, even to seat comfortably.

Three second-row passengers can complain only to the minimum reserve cabin width. At the height of the passenger compartment, the stock legroom and ease of planting questions asked. Get in and out of cars comfortably, sit comfortably and snugly. Split back seats can be folded, significantly increasing the luggage compartment while allowing for transportation of goods.

Starting equipment 2018-2019 Toyota Corolla Comfort is equipped with a fairly modest and in addition to the above mentioned chips available are 4 airbags, air conditioning, audio training, mirrors with electric and heated mirrors, electric front windows, central locking, ABS with EBD and BA.
