While we've yet to drive Toyota's latest compact sedan, our experiences with the mechanically similar Corolla hatchback leaves us confident that the 2020 Corolla will expertly combine quality and refinement in a manner that's sure to put it near the top of its class. Think we'll see this in 2019?

Will going hybrid give the Corolla a sales boost?

Toyota will introduce the new Corolla in China and Japan around the same time. The engineering team widened the track to improve handling, but the roof is 0.8 inch lower than it is on the outgoing Corolla, the front overhang is 1.3 inches shorter, and the center of gravity is now 0.4 inch lower. And the driver's seating position has been moved nearly an inch lower and 1.57-inches farther rearward, adjustments said to improve both comfort and the car's weight distribution. This is a significant increase in both power and fuel efficiency from the last engine which now generates a maximum power of 140 HP.

Underpinned by the same Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) as the hatchback, the auto will be offered with "many of the features and technology of the hatch" launched locally in August.

Engine line-up is expected to only offer the 121bhp 1.8-litre hybrid from the hatch and Touring Sports.

Base Corollas may get 16-inch steel wheels with hubcaps, but for the first time ever, you'll be able to order yours with 18-inch wheels.

The Chinese launch will take place after the middle of the same year. Toyota also stated during this occasion that the latest Corolla will be launched in 150 countries throughout the world.

As per another report by, since its very first advent in 1966, Toyota Corolla has been a world leader, in terms of luxury vehicles, throughout the world. The TNGA structure also features additional seals in its body panel gaps to insulate noise penetration and enhance air-sealing performance.

In addition to eight airbags, stability control, traction control, and anti-lock brakes, the 2020 Corolla comes with several more advanced safety features.

There's also a host of electronic driver aids including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control. Technically, it's considered a safety feature, but it should make highway driving much more relaxing, too.
