Default Spied: All-new 2019 Toyota Corolla

The sedan version of the all-new 2019 Toyota Corolla has been captured on camera.

Based on the NGA-C platform which is a new derivative of the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture), the 12th-gen Corolla is said to share it's underpinnings with the C-HR crossover and the new Prius hybrid.

Just like the hatchback, the first things that grab your attention are Shrek’s ears. Specifically, the way the side mirrors stick out. Considering that the turn signals are operational, it’s very likely that the mirrors will make it into production.

Then there’s the front fascia, which has an uncanny resemblance to that of the fourth-generation Prius. Instead of the round-shaped headlights fitted to this test prototype, the production version of the 2019 Toyota Corolla sedan will pride itself on more modern clusters.

The side profile reveals a more masculine shoulder line, small-diameter steel wheels with five lug nuts, as well as a more generous glasshouse, especially at the C-pillar. At the rear, the exhaust tip exits at the right-hand side of the rear bumper.

They may look weird, but imagine sitting in the car and the mirrors will fall directly in your line of sight , without having to look down ( Similar like a truck I believe )

Bear in mind the simple round headlights are temporary and will make way in the months to come for the production-ready clusters. At the back, the taillights are sourced from the current U.S.-spec Corolla. As for the side profile, the first thing that catches our attention is the position of the mirrors, which have been moved farther from the A-pillars and are now sticking out.

When it will arrive, the new Corolla is going to be entirely different in terms of hardware. It’s because the compact car will switch to the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which has already underpinned models such as the latest Prius and the funky C-HR crossover we had the pleasure of reviewing earlier in the week.

The rumor mill indicates Toyota will install a BMW engine underneath the hood, as part of a tie-up between the two automakers signed some years ago. If the reports will pan out, the 2019 Corolla will follow the BMW-powered Verso MPV and the Avensis midsize sedan and wagon.
