TORONTO, Ontario – September 27th, 2022 – Put yourself behind the wheel of a sporty hatchback and grab everything that life has to offer. The Toyota Corolla Hatchback is edgy, dynamic, and athletic – yet also eminently functional and well-equipped with the latest in automotive technology. For 2023, Toyota further changes the game, upgrading the Corolla Hatchback with Toyota Safety Sense 3.0, Toyota Multimedia connectivity, and some hot new body colours.
“Canadians who love driving love the Toyota Corolla Hatchback for its spirited performance, confident handling, urban-savvy footprint, and surprising versatility,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “Now, they can add next-generation safety technology and connectivity services to that list. Now’s the perfect time to discover how the Corolla Hatchback can change your game.”
The Toyota Corolla Hatchback is the complete package. Based on the Toyota New Global Architecture, its powertrain and rigid body with a low centre of gravity work together to deliver an agile, nimble driving experience, enhanced with confident handling and impressive comfort. Drivers will relish Corolla Hatchback’s responsiveness, stability, and feedback.
Performance starts under the hood, with a Dynamic Force 2.0 litre inline four-cylinder engine enhanced with several advanced engine performance and management technologies and mated to a direct-shift CVT with simulated 10-speed sequential shiftmatic steps, Sport Mode, and available paddle shifters. This powertrain delivers a peak 169 horsepower to the front wheels, while enjoying a fuel efficiency rating of 6.7L / 100km (combined city/highway).
Since first impressions are important, the Corolla Hatchback’s driving fun is expressed through sporty styling featuring a wide track, short overhangs, and athletic sculpting that channel the spirit of a rally car.
While sporty, the Corolla Hatchback also delivers class-up comfort. This starts even before one enters the vehicle, with sound-absorbing materials and technologies that insulate the cabin from wind, road, and engine noise. Once inside, drivers and up to four passengers discover an inviting, exciting interior filled with features that deliver premium comfort, style, and amenities. Sport seats in the front row hold driver and navigator securely, while a bench seat in the back makes space for three more. And when hauling cargo is required, the 60/40 split rear seat easily folds out of the way.
All models feature touchscreen display audio systems with Wireless Apple CarPlay and Wireless Android Auto capability. New for 2023, every Corolla Hatchback is standard equipped with Toyota Multimedia. The newest connectivity service from Toyota, this system and its associated smart phone application includes a huge list of new features and enhancements to make it easier than ever to stay in touch with the things that matter to you.
- Toyota Multimedia Service Connect provides access to vehicle health reports, warning light notifications, and maintenance schedules.
- Toyota Multimedia Remote Connect builds on this, adding remote functions and monitoring (engine start/stop, door lock/unlock, Find My Vehicle, Guest Driver Monitor, and window status), plus the features of Safety Connect (automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle locator, emergency assistance button, and enhanced roadside assistance).
- Toyota Multimedia Drive Connect further enhances the connectivity suite by adding Cloud Navigation with Destination Assist, and Toyota’s intelligent assistant that allows the driver to control many functions (eg: the audio system and the climate control system) with spoken commands.
As a Toyota, every Corolla Hatchback also features a comprehensive safety package. New this year, all Corolla Hatchbacks have been upgraded with Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 – the latest bundle of active safety technologies and systems that support driver awareness and decision-making. This bundle includes Road Sign Assist, the Pre-Collision System, Lane Tracing Assist, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Full Speed-Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beams. Other standard safety features include the Toyota Star Safety System, 10 air bags, a tire pressure monitoring system, and a back-up camera. Most trim levels are enhanced with Toyota’s Blind Spot Monitor system with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
