You must have a general idea of how the all-new Toyota Corolla 2019 sedan will look like thanks to series of spy shots surfaced earlier this year. However, this time, the Corolla prototype puts on much less camouflage than in the previous spy shots, giving us a clearer vision of what the new sedan will look like.

In spite of the disguise thwarting us from minor details, the design of the front end looks apparently lifted straight off the Toyota Corolla Hatchback/Auris 2019. Still, the full-LED headlights are made in the L shape. The upper grille gets slim while the trapezoidal lower grille comes massive.

Take a look at the side which is designed with a new front-quarter window, you may see a more prominent shoulder. Besides, the door mirrors are now relocated to the top of the door panels. The wraparound taillights are joined together by something like a chrome trim piece.

Step inside, the Toyota Corolla 2019 sedan’s dashboard is expected to get the C-HR-inspired design from the Auris with ample use of piano black and matte silver black accents, a longer and wider center console, and a floating infotainment system. It is believed that the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) will be equipped in the model and with it, the Corolla will definitely get a lower center of gravity.

In terms of engine, while the Auris gets the option of the 2.0-liter hybrid, 1.8-liter hybrid, and 1.2-liter turbo petrol, the Toyota Corolla Hatchback only gets a 2.0-liter Dynamic Force with an option of a Direct Shift CVT equipped with a launch gear and a 6-speed manual gearbox. Hopefully, the upcoming Corolla sedan will feature these powerplants options though 2.0-liter Dual VVT-I and 1.8-liter are quite feasible.
