2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Review

  • Enjoyable handling as well as a smooth ride quality
  • Lots of standard advanced driving aids
  • Easy to see out of
  • Rivals offer more cargo and cabin storage space
  • Not much rear legroom
  • A sporty-looking Special Edition trim debuts
  • New rear-seat side airbags and broader availability of the blind-spot monitor
  • Part of the 12th Corolla generation introduced for 2019

For much of its existence, the Toyota Corolla has been practical and comfortable but not particularly bursting with character. But the 2021 Toyota Corolla hatchback might surprise you with its stylish looks and appealing driving performance. Even better, these qualities don't diminish comfort or utility. Compared to the Corolla sedan, the hatchback has more cargo space and makes it easier to load bulky items.

Changes for the 2021 model are few, but the addition of more safety equipment and the new Special Edition trim level are certainly welcome. Overall, the Corolla hatchback is a solid pick for a small hatchback alongside other top rivals such as the Honda Civic hatchback, Hyundai Elantra GT and Mazda 3 hatchback. Read our Expert Rating below to learn more about whether the Corolla hatch is right for you.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
Toyota's engineers could have gone without making the Corolla hatchback fun, but they have. And we're happy they went to the trouble. When equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, the Corolla is engaging yet remains comfortable and easy to use. Only a smallish cargo space and a mediocre infotainment system hold it back.
It has a relatively small engine, but the Corolla hatchback's power is adequate. Our manual-equipped test car covered 0-60 mph in 7.8 seconds, which is an average time for this type of car. The brakes are also adequately powerful for emergency stops and are easy to control for smooth stops in typical driving.

The steering doesn't give you much of a feel for the road, but it's quick to respond. Along with the car's balanced handling, the Corolla hatchback makes a sporty initial impression. On a twisty road, this little hatchback is surprisingly fun and engaging.
The Corolla hatchback strikes a great balance between comfort and composure. It might be a bit soft over freeway undulations, but the body stays well under control. Go with the SE trim and its smaller 16-inch wheels for maximum comfort. The XSE rides a bit rougher because of its bigger wheels and skinnier sidewall tires.

On the open road, you'll appreciate the fairly quiet interior. The front seats will also appeal to a wide variety of drivers and are relatively comfortable even over long journeys. Airflow from the climate control system is effective at both heating and cooling.
The Corolla's climate control buttons are a bit crowded and the infotainment buttons are a bit small, but you can figure things out relatively quickly. There's ample access to the front seats thanks to a large door opening, and the seat height makes getting in and out a breeze.

Adjustments can be made quickly, and drivers of varying sizes will be able to get comfortable behind the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. The rear should be OK for most passengers, but taller passengers will desire more legroom. As you'd expect from a compact hatchback, there's great visibility in every direction. A low hoodline aids forward visibility, while plenty of side glass makes lane changes stress-free.
The Corolla hatch comes standard with automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, auto high-beam control and lane keeping assist — an impressive array for a car in this price range. The high-mounted 8-inch touchscreen is visually appealing, but various speed-related lockouts and a lack of a native navigation system make for a frustrating experience. The decent audio system helps, but other cars have much better.

The native voice recognition system is reasonably accurate as long as you follow the tutorial and set up the system to recognize your voice. Thankfully, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now included and are effective voice command work-arounds.
A small, practical hatchback can be a surprisingly versatile car, but a high floor spoils the Corolla's cargo space. Behind the rear seats you get 17.8 cubic feet. But competitors such as the Honda Civic and the Hyundai Elantra GT offer more.

The door pockets and decent cupholders mean there's some room for small items. In front of the shift lever, there's a shelf that looks to be for a phone, but it's not really big enough to hold one. The center console bin is also a bit small and awkward to reach into. For family duty, the Corolla has a decent amount of space for rear-facing child safety seats. The car seat anchors are easily accessible.
The Corolla hatchback gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined with the six-speed manual transmission or up to a rather impressive 35 mpg with the automatic. Our manual-equipped test car returned 30 mpg on our 115-mile evaluation route. Our total test fuel economy with random driving mixed in was a more lackluster 25.9 mpg, but we believe the EPA estimate should be achievable for most drivers.
The Corolla hatchback is well built, offers good fuel economy, and comes with a lot of standard safety features. Overall warranty coverage is average, though you do get free scheduled maintenance for services such as oil changes and tire rotations for the first two years/25,000 miles.
"Surprising" might be the best word to describe the Corolla hatchback. Its styling and upscale interior push the Corolla name a little more upmarket. And its compliant ride, fun handling and willing engine make it genuinely fun. All that and an available manual transmission give it real potential as a fun-to-drive hatchback even if it doesn't quite make it into hot-hatch territory.

Which Corolla Hatchback does Edmunds recommend?

We suggest going with the top-level XSE model with the continuously variable automatic transmission. Yes, it's the most expensive version in the lineup, but features including dual-zone automatic climate control and a power-adjustable driver's seat make it worth the premium.

Toyota Corolla Hatchback models

The 2021 Toyota Corolla hatchback is available in three trim levels: SE, SE Nightshade and XSE. There's also a Special Edition package that's based on the SE trim. All Corolla hatchbacks are powered by a 168-horsepower four-cylinder engine that sends power to the front wheels. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is typically standard but you can get the SE and XSE trims with a six-speed manual transmission. Feature highlights include:

SE
The base SE comes fairly well equipped with:

  • LED headlights
  • 16-inch alloy wheels
  • Automatic climate control
  • Keyless entry with push-button ignition
  • Two USB ports
  • 8-inch touchscreen display
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
  • 60/40-split folding rear seat

All Corolla hatchbacks also come with a suite of safety features and driver aids (Toyota Safety Sense 2.0). It includes:

  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)
  • Lane keeping assist (steers the Corolla back into its lane if it begins to drift over the lane marker)
  • Adaptive cruise control (adjusts speed to maintain a constant distance between the vehicle and the car in front)

Options on the SE include:

  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert (alerts you if a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot and warns you if a vehicle is about to cross your path while in reverse)
  • Special Edition package that adds 18-inch wheels, special red paint and an aerodynamic body kit

SE Nightshade
As the name implies, the SE Nightshade is a dark-trimmed take on the standard SE. Features mirror those on the SE but with changes such as black-painted wheels.

XSE
The top-level XSE starts with all of the SE's standard features, adding:

  • LED foglights
  • 18-inch wheels
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • 7-inch multi-function display in the instrument cluster
  • Leather and fabric seats with a power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert

Options on the XSE include:

  • Wireless charging pad
  • Upgraded infotainment system with integrated navigation and JBL audio system

4th time toyota owner,
SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Let's face it all these cars are pretty damm similar. Toyota has quality, reputation, dependably and value. Nice touch screen up front, nice ride, decent leg room up front.
5/5 stars, Amazing Car
Amazing car,
XSE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
This is a great car that drives as good as it looks. 6 speed manual shifts like butter & the appearance is very sporty & nicely appointed interior.
5/5 stars, Sporty, Reliable, and FUN!
Tina A,
XSE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Dependable, good-looking, comfortable, and convenient. All very relatable adjectives to describe what the Corolla Hatchback delivers to its user. If you want the full experience, get the 6-speed. This car has just the right amount of spunk to take corners with high RPMs.
5/5 stars, Great 2nd car
Richard T,
XSE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Got great deal from Toyota of El Cajon. My sales man was the best. Corolla Hatchback is fun to drive and I got all the bells and whistles to make the ride enjoyable.

2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback video

[MUSIC PLAYING] ELANA SCHERR: Toyota's marketing of the 2019 Corolla has been a focus on youth and fun. It's available in a hatchback, and hatchbacks are fun. But can the Corolla really escape its dull reputation and compete with cars like the Veloster and the Mazda 3? I have to say, I was kind of dreading doing this review. Like, ugh, Corolla. What is there even to say? It's like a boring car, right? It's just boring. But then I saw this. Hello, hatchback. And it's a six-speed? And look at that color? You could call the 2019 Corolla XSE a lot of things, but boring is not one of them. I'm going to show you just how exciting the Corolla is. But first, subscribe to our channel. And if you're shopping for a car, visit Edmunds. For years, we've been giving Toyota a hard time about designing bland cars. And now, the new Toyotas-- the Corolla, in particular-- are full of body lines, and dips, and bulges-- it's definitely not bland. But just because something isn't boring doesn't mean that it's attractive. The big mouth front end is growing on me. I kind of like it. But the back-- well, the kind of thing I can say about the back is that it looks like a robot with an underbite. It's not that pretty. What is pretty, though, is this color. Toyota calls it blue flame, and it is like driving a summer sky. You know, so many of us live in these dull, gray, concrete worlds. Why not add a little pop of color to your commute? I took some friends out to lunch in the Corolla, and they got inside. And both of them were like, oh, this is nice. And since they showed up in Porsches, I'm going to assume they knew something about nice interiors. I'm not going to say that the interior is as nice as a Porsche, but there's soft-touch materials where previous generations had hard plastic. There's a lot of really nice details, like stitching, interesting different textures, these great seats with a pattern in them. And for $25,000, this is well-dressed. The seats in the Corolla are really comfortable. In fact, the whole front of the cabin is spacious. There's plenty of room, plenty of personal space between you and your passenger. The seats are just bolstered enough to be comfortable if you're going around a corner, but they're not real tight-fitting like a race seat. And the seats go up far enough that I can put the clutch in without ramming my knee into the dash, and I still have plenty of space. It's super comfortable. It really makes this car a joy to drive. While there's plenty of room for people in the front of the Corolla, there's not a whole lot of room for stuff. The cup holders are small. There's only one little pocket for a phone, and it's kind of inconveniently out of the way. Console's pretty tiny, and there's not a lot of space in the side pockets for the doors, either. Also, I do have a little rant, which is about USB ports. There are two USB ports in the Corolla-- one in the console, where you would expect it to be, but that one doesn't connect to Apple CarPlay. The one that connects to Apple CarPlay is all the way over on the passenger side. And you can't even see it from the driver's seat, so it's a little weird. It's only going to be a problem once when you first get the car, but it would've been nice if they'd made it a bright color, or just a little bit more obvious. This is not a problem for you if you use Android Auto because Toyota doesn't support Android Auto. Although there are rumors they might in the future. Anyway, rant over. Oh, no, wait. I have another rant. The eight-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment is fine. I mean, it's well-placed. It doesn't get all glary. But the actual infotainment system for Toyota is, like, what are they thinking? None of it really makes sense. It takes so many clicks to get anything done. For example, if you want to just adjust the volume for the navigation directions, in most cars, you can do that with the volume knob. You just do it when a direction is being spoken, and it doesn't change your music or anything like that. But in the Corolla, you've got to go to-- OK. It's Menu, Setup, Voice, Voice Volume, and then you can click it up and down. That's like four or five clicks to adjust something that you might need to adjust while you were driving. For a car that won't even let you release the parking brake unless you have the foot on the brake, I was sort of surprised they made it that complicated. Toyota's safety suite all comes standard, so you get things like pedestrian detection, and lane departure assist, backup camera, a bunch of airbags, everything you need. Here's what you get in the backseat of the Corolla. You have a very comfortable seat, enough leg room for a night out on the town, although you might not want to live in the backseat, especially if you're tall. I think you might run out of headroom. You've got an armrest, cupholders, there's another cupholder in the door, a little slot for putting phones or change or very, very small pets. Here's what you don't have-- a USB port. I guess you can use the one in the console since you can't use that to use Apple CarPlay in the front. I would not use it for five people unless you were in an emergency, because this middle seat is really, really tight. The new Corolla hatch is wider, lower, and shorter than the previous one, and that mostly affects cargo space. There's 17.8 cubic feet back here, and that's a lot less than the competition. The Civic hatch has 22 cubic feet. And even the Veloster, which is small, has 19.9. Do you want to see a magic trick? I'm going to take this perfectly adequate commuter car Corolla and make it super fun. Ready? Ta-da, it's a stick. When people say that driving a stick is more fun than an automatic, that is absolutely the case. That's why it's so exciting to see a stick shift available in a car at a very low price point. If you used to own a stick shift, and you haven't in a long time because you just didn't feel like there was a sensible daily driver car that offered one, right here, guys. And if you've always sort of wanted to drive a stick, but you've been intimidated by it, or just seems too scary, this is the easiest manual car I've ever driven. I've been driving this car all week long. I am not kidding. I've put about 600 miles on it in one week-- a lot of traffic, a lot of hills, all the things that somebody who's new to driving a manual might be intimidated by. And not one time have I wished that it was the automatic transmission. Not once. I'm going to say that the most intimidating thing about driving a stick is what do you do when you're on a hill? Because you stop, and then if you let off the brake, you're going to roll backwards. Oh, my god. What if there's somebody behind you? Well, modern stick shift cars are great because first of all, it automatically has a hill assist. So there's a moment where you can let off the gas and it'll hold it for you. Like I was off the brake for about a second before we started rolling back. But let's say you need more than that, like a second isn't enough time. Well, we've got a hold button, and it'll hold the brakes indefinitely. I am not on the brakes right now. I'm on the clutch, not on the brakes, not on the gas. And then we're ready to go. It automatically releases, and we're moving. Where was this when I was learning to drive stick? It's stuff like this that makes this car such a perfect city run-about car because everything that would have made you not want it as a daily driver, or not want to stick shift as a daily driver before-- irrelevant. They have solved all of your problems. If you just write out the specs for this car, it doesn't seem very impressive. It's a 2-liter 4-cylinder. It's not turbocharged. It's naturally aspirated. And it only makes 168 horsepower, which isn't very much compared to the competition. Both the Civic SI and the Veloster have quite a bit more. But everything in the Corolla is perfectly balanced that it makes it a lot of fun, even if it isn't super fast. The suspension, the ride quality, the way that it shifts, the way the power is delivered-- naturally-aspirated engines are kind of nice for power delivery because it's just real smooth and it's real predictable. There's no jump from a turbo. There's no turbo lag. It's just there when you need it. And because it's not a super high horsepower car, you get to shift a lot, which is kind of the most fun part about a stick shift car. And it's got a kind of rev match. Toyota calls it IMT-- intelligent manual transmission. It's not like the rev match that you've seen in muscle cars and performance cars where you shift from third to second and it goes like wing, ding, ding, ding, pop, pop, pop, pop. And it's like really dramatic, and you sound like you're, I don't know, at the 24 hours of Daytona. It's a lot more subtle than that. But what it does is it just makes the shift a little bit smoother so you just feel a little bit better at it. And your passengers spill a little less coffee on themselves. If I could change one thing about the way they built this car, I might've gone with the slightly lower gearing. I like a first gear that you can really lug along, and I found that I was barely ever using sixth gear. So they could have had a lower gear, and I don't think they would have given up that much in mileage. I also really like the visibility in this car. The mirror doesn't block anything when you're turning. There's a lot of glass all around you. And the B pillar, which in four-doors sometimes can be like a huge blind spot, isn't. I can see out the window behind me. And it's got blind-spot monitoring, so it'll light up in the mirror if I don't see it. Some of the things I'm talking about in this car are going to apply if you get the CBT automatic transmission. But I don't want you to go and get the CBT and then call me up and be like, Elana, you said this car was super fun, and it's not fun. It'll still be nice. It'll still have a nice interior, and it'll still be a good deal for a daily driver with the automatic. But if you want fun, you've got to get the stick. That's the only way that this car competes with the other fun hatches, like the Mazda 3 or the Veloster. If, for some reason, you're looking at this car and you have no interest in fun, it is still a totally usable car. It's not loud inside. Ride quality is comfortable. You could hate fun and still like this car. It's been a long time since anyone's described the Corolla as a fun car. I'd say maybe late '80s before it went to front-wheel drive? But with the new 6-speed hatchback, it's a real competitor to the Civic SE, the Mazda 3, and the Hyundai Veloster. Go forth and slam some gears, my friends. This Corolla is fun.

Toyota Corolla Hatchback vs. Hyundai Veloster

The Hyundai Veloster is a bit of an oddball, but that's what makes it charming. It uses a three-door setup (one door on the driver's side and two on the passenger side). We really enjoy the way the Veloster drives, though its base engine is underpowered. For greater practicality, go with the Corolla.

Compare Toyota Corolla Hatchback & Hyundai Veloster features 

Toyota Corolla Hatchback vs. Honda Civic

The Honda Civic hatchback takes everything we enjoy about the Civic sedan — a powerful but fuel-efficient engine, a comfortable ride and athletic handling — and adds more cargo space thanks to the hatchback design. Our biggest complaints are with the tech and driver aids, both of which aren't as refined as the Toyota's.

Compare Toyota Corolla Hatchback & Honda Civic features 

Toyota Corolla Hatchback vs. Mazda 3

The Mazda 3 hatchback has a more premium-looking and -feeling cabin than anything else in this class. You also get more rear-passenger legroom and more cargo space with the 3 compared to the Corolla. But the Corolla counters with superior fuel economy and an available manual transmission and optional sporty-looking styling kits.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
