Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Toyota has some excellent laurels on which to rest: a history of outstanding reliability and affordability are nothing to sneeze at, as are many of its past and current vehicles of high status. But that doesn't change the fact that it feels like Toyota is resting on its laurels with the 2019 Corolla.Corolla sedan carries over unchanged from last year

Pros
Comes with a long list of standard convenience and safety features
Plenty of room inside, especially in the back
Sport seats remain comfortable after hours of continuous driving

Cons
Acceleration is slow, even for this class
Most interior materials feel cheap
Fuel economy isn't great
Rivals achieve the same with more power
A snooze to drive

Pros
Responsive CVT
Comfortable front seats
Roomy backseat
Touchscreen graphics quality
Estimated gas mileage

Cons
Ride quality
Steering feel
Droning sounds from CVT
Modest power at highway speeds
Some low-grade plastic interior trim
No Apple CarPlay, Android Auto connectivity

The 2019 Toyota Corolla is a fun choice as a hatchback, but we’d skip the sedan in favor of its competitors.

Pros
Entertaining hatchback
Spacious hatchback
Well-equipped hatchback
Good safety gear
The hatchback, period

Cons
Outdated sedan
CarPlay only on hatch
CVT can drone
Shop the competition

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone
