    2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback To Begin $20,910*

      Also, we have fuel economy figures

    Before the new Corolla hatchback hits dealers later this summer, Toyota has revealed pricing and fuel economy numbers.

    The base SE will set you back $20,910 (includes a $920 destination charge), while the XSE begins at $23,910. That will net you a new 2.0L four-cylinder with 168 horsepower and a six-speed manual. A CVT is available for an additional $1,100.

    This is what you get on either trim:

    • SE:  Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning; 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay compatibility, and 16-inch wheels.
    • XSE: 18-inch wheels, LED fog lamps, upgraded infotainment system, leather-and-fabric upholstery, and heated front seats. 

    As for fuel economy, the SE with the CVT is the mileage leader with EPA estimates of 32 City/42 Highway/36 Combined. The XSE CVT is next with figures of 30/38/33. For the manual, Toyota only has figures for the SE which are 28/37/31. Numbers on the XSE manual are coming soon.

    I would definitely drive one of these. I wouldn't want a CVT though. That would leave me with a manual or a different car.

    give it a 0.33 inch lift, slap some cladding on it, Matrix Returns.

    You are so right, This could easily pass for an updated Matrix or Pontiac Vibe! :P

    No need for a Matrix when Toyota already has the RAV4 built on the same platform.

    You must not have gotten the memo. Every brand needs 14 crossovers with only 2 inch difference between them in size

    Sounds rather wasteful, especially when gas prices are already up 30 cents in a month and will probably get more expensive for the rest of summer.  The real question is whether the crossover thing will peter out if gas prices breach $4 a gallon just like SUVs did in 2008 and the culling began apace.

    But we’re assured that is what people want

    Well you should have seen me yesterday trying to haul some PVC picket fence sections in my Compass.  Just call me Jed Clampett.  Only a n00b would get rid of a pickup truck in the name of 8 MPG.

    That is correct, plus a luxury brand with another 14 crossovers that are 2 inches apart.   The car buying public will not be satisfied until Toyota/Lexus has 50 crossovers to pick from.

    As far as the Corolla goes, this looks pretty ugly, the sedan looks better, and the sedan isn't winning any design awards either.

    Ask yourself this : When CUV sales were nowhere- did toyoyo/lexus have 50 sedans/coupe to chose from?

    That isn’t how it works, it is commonly know that every sedan made by every manufacturer in the past 20 years loses money and every crossover makes at least $10,000 profit.  This statement hangs on the wall of auto execs around the world.

    Sure that's how it works. Plus, at one point, sedans made $10K profit per and all CUVs lost money.

    Or not.

    As usual, discussing automotive trends is nearly impossible to separate the wheat from the chaff.

    Trends come and go, some types of vehicles are popular at various points in time.  What is popular today may not be popular in 5 years.  Reality occurs.

    I like this car. It’s got a decent little motor, NO EcoTurbo bull shyte; and finally Toyota has stylistically a vehicle with effort on design even though it’s still more ‘meh’ than the new Focus, incumbent Cruze, Civic hatch and the Elantra GT.

    And I hope it sells like crazy just to prove that Dearborn when it comes to cars has made forever only retarded decisions.

    That was a bit cheeky and trolling by me. Yes. Of course Dearborn has made great cars before!

     

    and all automakers do have bad periods, we all know unintended acceleration and the massive recalls that Toyota has. 

     

    Panther cars made for badass cop cars and the Mustang is good, but yeah I just had to find some kind of new dig against them, same with General Moronics.

     

    my biggest mistake is that in my view I hold domestic makes to higher standards, because I believe they can be much better if they weren’t so short sighted.

      Next up on the review vehicle playlist here at C&G's Detroit Bureau is the 2020 Toyota 86, a vehicle I haven't driven since it was called the Scion FR-S. A lot has changed with this model aside from its name since the one I drove back in 2013. The styling has been refreshed, various tweaks made the suspension, and minor updates to the interior. What hasn't changed is the 2.0L boxer-four from Subaru that produces 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. My test vehicle has the standard six-speed manual.
      The as-tested price for this 86 comes to $34,783, partly due to a couple of TRD options being fitted. Here's some first impressions,
      The 2.0L boxer-four isn't a great sounding to begin with, sounding like a bucket of bolts being shaken. The optional TRD exhaust only makes the noise worse. Handling is still this car's strong suit, offering minimal body roll and crisp steering. The touchscreen radio is very barebones, but does offer Apple CarPlay. I'll have more thoughts throughout the week, and will be doing my best to answer various questions from you.

      The Toyota Tundra holds the title of being the oldest full-size truck, coming in at thirteen years without any sort of redesign. On one hand, this makes the Tundra a very reliable and dependable truck. On the other hand, the Tundra isn’t able to fully compete with the likes GM, Ram, or Ford with their more modern designs and hardware. But there is one exception to this where the Tundra can be a good alternative to the Detroit Three, and it comes in the form of the TRD Pro.
      Color can do a lot to a vehicle such as making an older model look modern or highlighting some of the polarizing elements of a design. This Army Green paint, which is new on all TRD Pros for 2020 makes the Tundra look younger and a bit more aggressive.  Inside, you can tell that the Tundra is getting up there in age. The design hasn’t changed much and material quality cannot even compare to the likes of GM and Ram’s trucks. But I like the large buttons and knobs for various controls. Not only does it make it easier to find, but it means you can have a set of gloves on and easily control various aspects. One key improvement for 2020 is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto being added to the Tundra’s Entune system, which gives drivers another choice in their infotainment choices. The Crewmax model seen here is huge. Step into the back seat and you might think you entered a limo with an endless amount of head and legroom on offer. I do wish the seats had a little bit more padding. Only one engine is available on the 2020 Tundra; a 5.7L V8 with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. This is teamed with a six-speed automatic and four-wheel drive. This engine provides plenty of thrust and provides an engine burble that you might expect from one of the Detroit three’s V8 trucks. The automatic is very smooth when changing gear and seems to where it needs to be in any situation. The downside to this V8 is fuel economy. The EPA says TRD Pro CrewMax will return 13 City/17 Highway/14 Combined. I saw an average of 14.2 mpg during my week of a 60/40 mix of highway and city driving. Maybe a couple more gears for the automatic could improve this. Toyota has kitted the Tundra TRD Pro with some serious off-road chops; Fox internal bypass dampers for all four corners, TRD springs that increase wheel travel, and a set of Michelin LTX off-road tires. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to try it off-road. But other reviewers who have taken it off the beaten path report the TRD Pro is very capable.  What I can report is the changes to the suspension makes for a surprisingly comfortable ride. This suspension does mean you will experience a fair amount of body roll when cornering, but that is to be expected with a truck like this. My Tundra TRD Pro CrewMax starts at $52,780. With some accessories and destination, the price climbs $55,020. The Tundra is getting long in the tooth as evidenced by the interior and poor fuel economy from the V8 engine. But the TRD Pro helps freshen the Tundra a bit and makes a compelling option for those who plan on spending more time off the beaten path.

      The Toyota Yaris and Yaris Hatchback will be no more in the U.S. come the end of June. That's according to a leaked memo posted to Reddit and found by CarBuzz. Sent to "All Southeast Toyota Dealers and General Managers" by Toyota, the memo says the Yaris will "cease production" at the end of June.
      "The Yaris sedan and Yaris Hatchback will not be available for model year 2021. Model year 2020 will be the last year for Yaris. June 2020 will be the last month of production for the Yaris sedan and Yaris Hatchback for the US," wrote Christine N. Henley, Toyota North America's Western Communications Manager in the memo.
      Toyota confirmed the memo, and gave Car and Driver this statement;
      "The entry-subcompact segment has new regulations that require additional homologation. Those regulations, coupled with declining sales in the segment, are some of the reasons behind the decision."
      (Author's Note: We're wondering what Toyota means by the statement we bolded here, and we'll update if we get some sort of clarification. -WM).
      The declining sales makes sense as Toyota only moved 21,917 Yaris models in 2019, down 5,293 units when compared to 2018. To give more perspective, the Corolla moved 304,850 units last year.
      So if you're interested an affordable Toyota, we would hurry down to your nearest dealer ASAP.
