DALLAS -- Toyota's redesigned Corolla hatchback, aimed at first-time buyers and manual-transmission fans, will go on sale in showrooms this summer for $20,910 for the entry-level model, including shipping.
The 2019 base SE comes with a six-speed manual transmission, LED headlights, 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and alloy wheels, Toyota said in a statement Friday. Estimated fuel economy is 28 mpg city/37 mpg highway/31 mpg combined.
The SE model with an automatic continuously variable transmission bumps the price up to $22,010, including shipping. Fuel economy rises to 32 mpg city/42 mpg highway/36 mpg combined.
The priciest Corolla hatch, the XSE with the automatic, comes in at $25,010, and fuel economy drops to 30 mpg city/38 mpg highway/33 mpg combined. The XSE adds bigger 18-inch wheels, LED fog lamps, chrome front grille, an upgraded interior with leather and available adaptive front headlamps.
All Corollas come with suite of safety equipment, Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, that includes automatic braking to avoid a front collision, full-range dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist and automatic high beams.
Toyota has not given an on-sale date, and fuel economy figures for the manual XSE trim were not available.
