Whether you're commuting to work in Hamburg, going on a weekend adventure near Allentown, or planning a road trip, the 2019 Toyota Corolla is a car you'll want to have. This year, the Corolla features a spacious interior with plenty of room for five passengers. The back seat is especially roomy, which gives passengers plenty of space to spread out and relax. The Corolla's sporty seats enhance its athletic look and help you ride in comfort, even after hours of driving. It’s the Corolla that you know to be reliable, but even better than ever.
How Does the 2019 Corolla Perform on the Road?
The base model of the 2019 Toyota Corolla, which drivers in Bethlehem can test out, comes standard with a 1.8L, four-cylinder engine that produces up to 132 hp and up to 128 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). This engine is standard on all Corolla trims except for the Eco, which gets a slightly more powerful engine that gets you easily through the highways around Reading. The engine in the ECO produces up to 140 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque. Along with its ample power, this engine is also designed to maximize fuel economy.
Another area where Toyota excels is safety. In fact, it's one of the industry's leaders in safety technology. Naturally, the 2019 Corolla is jam-packed with safety features. A winning combination of active and passive safety amenities are designed to keep you as safe as possible if you have a fender-bender in Hazleton, or better yet, help avoid accidents in the first place. Standard in all trim levels is the Toyota Safety Sense package, which offers a generous (and rare) combination of driver aid amenities, even at the base level. This standard package gives you a rearview mirror, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane-departure warning to help your Corolla back into its lane if the car drifts without the turn signal on the highway. As for passive safety features, a total of eight airbags in Toyota's advanced airbag system offer protection in case of a rollover or a collision. In the front, the seats have a whiplash-reducing design to reduce the likelihood of serious head, neck, and back injury if your car is hit from behind. In the backseat, a LATCH system keeps children's seats locked firmly in place. Completing the 2019 Corolla's safety features is a tire pressure monitoring system that displays a warning message if your car's tire pressure is too low.
What kind of Technology Features does the 2019 Corolla offer?
In the latest model year, the Corolla stays up to date with a plethora of modern amenities. With Toyota's own propriety infotainment system, you can take calls, listen to your favorite movies, and plug in your smartphone to get directions as you're cruising around Hamburg. A USB port keeps everyone's devices connected on the go, and the infotainment system conveniently pairs with Bluetooth. The infotainment system also has a voice control feature so that you can use it safely without having to take your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road.
What trim levels are offered with the 2019 Toyota Corolla?
In 2019, there are six levels of the Toyota Corolla to choose from. From the base level up, here's what this year's Corolla offers.
L - The L is the base model, but comes with many standard features. In it, you'll stand out among other drivers in Reading and Bethlehem with highly visible LED headlights and daytime running lights. The windows are power-operated, and you get the signature Toyota Safety Sense safety package. On the inside, a USB port and Bluetooth connectivity are the L's signature creature comforts. The starting MSRP is an affordable $18,700.
LE - Next up is the LE, including everything from the base model but also adding a 6.1-inch infotainment display screen and premier audio system. Automatic climate control is a standard feature on the LE, and the seats are a step up with a premium fabric finish. The LE has a remote keyless entry to make it easier to get into your vehicle with an armful of belongings. A backup camera with gridlines to help you see your rear path of travel more easily is also standard. Starting MSRP is $19,135.
LE Eco - The LE Eco is a variant of the LE, but features a more powerful engine and available 16-inch alloy wheels to complete its more athletic look. A rear spoiler adds to its appearance, and it has a more aerodynamic shape to shave those extra minutes off your morning commute. In the back row, a split-folding design allows you to make room for more passengers or cargo as needed. The starting price for the LE Eco trim is $19,535.
XLE - The XLE comes standard with LED headlights and LED accent lighting. The trunk has a push button start for convenience, and you'll get a moonroof with a sliding sunshade as a standard feature. Both front seats are heated on the XLE.

SE - The SE builds on the XLE's amenities with a sporty fascia and a grille with a glossy black finish. It also has a rear spoiler, and instead of the standard 15-inch wheels found on the other trim levels, the SE rides on head-turning 17-inch wheels with black accents. The interior of the SE is more luxurious and refined with the addition of leather seats, which are also heated, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. Starting MSRP is $20,645.
