I think the rear end of the 2019 Corolla HB looks surprisingly like the front end of the 2018 Yaris.

I guess Toyota is going through a bulge phase now as well. Even the new 2019 RAV4 looks like a hulking, bulging, bloated mess, and I won't even get started on the C-HR design. I must be out of touch with U.S. consumer tastes big time. New cars from every automaker have become a seriously depressing prospect, for a variety of different reasons.

Plus, you wouldn't have that silver metallic trim around the stupid fish-face front, so it would blend even better in black.

The more I think about all the stupid crap they are putting into cars today, the more I appreciate my current car, lol.

So I did this on the builder, and you can literally get the same color and wing,

the XSE has some nicer features like fog lamps (which im pretty sure I could install after the fact)

dual zone climate control,
a bigger touch screen
and leather interior

otherwise the SE has the rest, i think the front bumper is chrome'd vs grey'd out which is what i want anyways.

I did the pricing and heres the dumb of the dumb, you can order a brand new iM from the website, and its only about 400 dollars less expensive ( with the extra's I wanted) from the 19 corolla with the extra's I wanted


I want the wing, the rear bumper molding, the side kicker molding, all weather floor mats (honestly some of the best mats in the world..) and anything that says TRD on it (fanboy)
otherwise, keep everything else basic.
and exactly right, within a few months of ownership Ill probably have a suspension set and tires/rims on the car to suit.


that said

this is a mini rant and most of you can ignore. as I grow up I am finding it hard to appreciate the used car prices of certain hot cars. (s2000, FD rx7s etc etc) when you could buy this Corolla for around 22k (ish)
like the used market is favoring other cars for their exclusivity? Sure I get that, and if its your dream car go for it. I paid about 21k for a 2011 Rx8 R3 and loved it. back in 2015? would I pay that today? no,m it's not worth that to me anymore I guess

Maybe im getting old, but 22k (ish) for a new hatch with a manual and toyota's world famous reliability and ease of maint, that's a pretty good deal


too bad this yaris isnt moving anytime soon ;)

the only thing i'm missing with the se vs the xse is the power lumbar seat. the xe is a 6-way and the xse is an 8-way(i guess it's a big deal in this segment to have that). i could care less about the fogs and 18 inch wheels(i agree with kalispel - they're too big!). right now i have a tempurpedic(sp?) lumbar support that i use with the yaris. it's nice with our camry that i don't have to use it(i've got a bad back). i notice the wheels are 5-lug. does anyone know the actual pattern/offset so i could look for 17 inch summer wheels on tirerack and use the 16 inch wheels for winter? thanks!

There's a few reasons and most of them are crotchy old man related, but more and more it's like they don't care what you want, they care about selling product, and second off is they claim to be "car people" but still don't understand the difference between what I am looking for and wanting, vs just the name of something similar, specifically I had asked for a buildsheet on the new 2019 Corolla Hatchback in manual, the fancy blue color, with the TRD options all spec'd out, instead they want me to look at a current model sedan... cvt... and then calls me Corey. Maybe I am the oddball down here but this astounds me. I doubt I'll go back to this specific dealer for marketing and sales, maybe for maint still because there's two or three mechanics I really like but they are actual car people... anyways just a mini rant

Most dealerships/salespeople only care about selling something - SELLING ANYTHING AS FAST AS POSSIBLE, FOR AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. They could care less what you want or are looking for in a car, or specific model/trim/color. They are like stupid robots following a programmed routine to SELL SELL SELL, and probably don't even read 95% of what any email you send them says. Their apathy & lack of comprehension is astounding.
