Here are five things to know about Toyota’s newest hatchback:

XSE’s instrument panel and doors receive unique stitching, and behind the multifunction steering wheel, a 7-inch TFT Multi-Information Display (MID) shows vehicle information, turn-by-turn navigation, and various vehicle settings (including those pertaining to Lane Departure Alert, Lane Tracing Assist, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Blind Spot Monitor).

The Corolla Hatchback’s seamless unification of comfort and sporty controllability begins with the Toyota New Global Architecture C (TNGA) platform. An all-new TNGA-based powertrain is the heart of Corolla Hatchback’s Fun-To-Drive identity.
