Just before the Scion brand closed its doors for good, they had introduced a number of vehicles that were really starting to raise some eyebrows in a good way. Many people were worried about what would come of these vehicles when the brand closed, but the good news is that they were absorbed into the Toyota lineup. The Scion iA became the sedan version of the Yaris, the FR-S became the 86, the C-HR became a Toyota again and the iM eventually became the 2020 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, now available right here in Palatine IL!
There are two aspects of every compact hatchback sedan that stand out as more important than most others – sportiness and space. A compact sedan is never the most spacious vehicle available, but many drivers want the benefits of a car that size without sacrificing as much space for cargo. That’s where its hatchback nature comes into play. Most also have to be sportier than other models on the lineup and perhaps better performing than one might expect, because of the popularity of European hot hatches.
The Corolla Hatchback might not be the best-performing vehicle on the lineup, nor the spacious, but it certainly ticks these boxes as far as compact hatchback sedans are concerned. Powered by a 2.0L 5-cylinder engine, it’s capable of generating 168 horsepower alongside 151 pound-feet of torque. As for roominess, behind the rear seats it offers 17.8 cubic feet of space to fill, and you can drop the back seats flat to open up even more!
Of course, it’s not all just performance, sporty design and cargo capacity. The Corolla Hatchback is decked out with all kinds of great features and impressive specifications that make it a great option for anyone looking for a smaller vehicle.
