Corolla hot hatch? Sporty Toyota Corolla Hatchback coming to NY

Toyota is bringing its 2019 Corolla Hatchback to Canada beginning summer 2018, and notes the auto boasts a new four-cylinder with an "intelligent" manual transmission; and a host of mobile device connectivity and active safety tech.

For a company that seemingly offers dozens of vehicles across every automotive segment there is, Toyota is notably lacking in the hatchback department...that is, until today at the New York Auto Show, where it unveiled 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback.

That's no bad thing, it turns out.

Toyota Vietnam is recalling 20,490 Corolla and Lexus cars whose faulty airbag inflator modules could be broken, and metal debris could injure passengers.

The 2019 Corolla gets off to a good start, too. Quite similar to Toyota Auris, the latest Hatchback is longer, lower and wider than the previous model. Most will probably end up wearing the 16-inch standard wheels, but there's no denying it looks good on the optional 18-inchers.

Aberdeen Native and WWE Star to Return to the Ring
Honestly speaking, it would be great if Daniel Bryan finally gets redemption for his infamous loss at the 2015 Royal Rumble. But if it happens, WWE needs to be very careful about things because they don't want to upset their sponsors.

Earth Hour to take place at 8:30pm on Saturday
Dermot O'Gorman from the WWF says the 2018 theme is about recognizing the risk climate change poses to our iconic wildlife. It is also encouraging people to talk about what the Earth means to them by sharing stories online.

Customers can choose between two transmissions: the Dynamic-Shift CVT (simulating a 10-speed gearing) with Sport Mode and paddle shifters or the six-speed iMT manual gearbox. Weeks after the Auris debut, a new Corolla variant shares plenty with its Geneva sibling but has a name that's quizzical no more. We do not know what is in the egg but based on the hashtag on the egg, we are guessing that it is a hatchback model.

Rough-road durability testing for Toyota's North American vehicles is being conducted on a course in MI that the Japanese auto maker has specifically designed with potholes, dips and other track surface defects that recreate all the road-induced punishment that the average vehicle can expect to encounter during its lifetime in a single proving ground-conducted evaluation. A premium system adds an 800-wat 8-speaker JBL sound system with navigation and more.

The touchscreen will get the most attention, certainly, but it's not the end of the tech. Toyota notes its pedestrian detection technology "sees" pedestrians even in the dark, and the pre-collision assist function applies the brakes if it detects a collision can't be avoided.

Expect a more involving drive and a more resolved ride quality, given that Toyota has installed a multi-link rear suspension system in the Auris for the first time.

The Corolla hatch is the second Toyota, after the new Avalon large sedan, to have Apple CarPlay, a feature the automaker was a longtime holdout on. We'll find out more at the NYIAS 2018 next week.
