Standard on every 2019 Toyota Corolla Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.

As sedans go, the 2019 Toyota Corolla stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is simple to fold down to fit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Toyota Corolla includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
