Corolla Hatch leads the attack on Toyota's model


The second event of the SOMI (State of the Motor Industry), organized by Toyota South Africa Motors in Johannesburg last week, provided a preview of the manufacturer's busy 2019 campaign.

Toyota's first breakthrough in vehicle attack is the new Corolla Hatch, which is being launched this week to replace Auris in SA as the brand's C-segment hatchback.

The new generation car has a more attractive design and introduces a version 1.2I turbocharged engine, as used in the C-HR crossover. Customers will have the option of either a six-speed manual transmission or continuously variable transmission (CVT) with 10 pre-programmed shift steps.

The Corolla Hatch is powered by Toyota's TNGA platform, which promises to provide engaging driving along with improved driving comfort. Three offers will be offered – 1.2T XS Manual, 1.2T XS CVT and 1.2T XR CVT flagship, priced at R336,800, R347,400 and R367,100 respectively.

All models offer a generous level of specification, including LED headlamps and DRLs, intelligent entry, sports seats, two-zone climate control and vehicle stability control with an auxiliary ramp function.
