blogentry-114362-0-98126600-1530070383_thumb.jpgFor the first time in North America, Toyota's newest, stylish, and most technologically-advanced small car, the all-new 2019 Corolla Hatchback, makes its debut at the New York International Auto Show.

 

blogentry-114362-0-38657700-1530070789_thumb.jpgDon't let its diminutive dimensions fool you―the hatchback, in either SE or XSE grades, is all about making a huge impression. With its lengthy list of standard features that includes Entune 3.0 with Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa Connectivity; a revised sport-tuned suspension and new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform; and the first North American application of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, Corolla Hatchback strikes a resounding chord with drivers who value authenticity, utility, practicality, and style.

 

blogentry-114362-0-04937200-1530070793_thumb.jpgCorolla Hatchback has flair extraordinaire. With a theme of Shooting Robust, along with a design goal of Agile, influencing their every pen stroke, designers created a form that is simultaneously distinct, dynamic, muscular, and sophisticated. Shooting references the design's sport coupe traits implemented in all facets.

 

With those concepts in mind, Corolla Hatchback is a meticulously mixed cocktail of emotive lines, creases, and surfaces. It's lower (by 1.0 in.), wider (by 1.2 in.), and longer (by 1.5 in.) than its predecessor, Corolla iM. It also has wider front and rear tracks, and a longer wheelbase.

The new frontal styling with a rounded nose and trapezoidal-shaped under grille is a further evolution of Toyota's Under Priority Catamaran and Keen Look design philosophies, both of which emphasize Corolla Hatchback's increased width.

 

blogentry-114362-0-22777700-1530070811_thumb.jpgSlim, J-shaped Bi-Beam LED headlamps wrap deep into the front fenders and accent the front in both stylishness and precise illumination. Front overhang has been cut by 0.8 inches; at the rear, it's 0.8 inches longer. Chiseled character lines at its profile link both ends' protruding flanks making for an active, well-planted expression that is uncommon amongst its peers. Wheel sizes range from 16-inches to 18-inches in diameter.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAd_I4TJqHEIts new rear style articulates Corolla Hatchback's overarching emphasis on athletic presence. The relationship between front and rear design is closely aligned given the rear's more rounded physique that encompasses simple, condensed, yet powerful, three-dimensional landscapes. Its hatch―now made from TSOP (Toyota Super Olefin Polymer) and ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)―is not only lightweight to aid fuel efficiency, it is set at a steeper angle (moved 14 degrees forward) for that ultimate sporty look. The rear all-LED taillamps feature a diffusing inner lens designed to highlight the hatchback's stout stance. And the rear bumper styling echoes the frontal Under Priority Catamaran design with its thin lower lip and chrome diffuser.

 

blogentry-114362-0-42460700-1530070803_thumb.jpgDifferentiation between SE and XSE is distinct. Both grades receive LED headlamps and taillights, chrome rear diffuser, and alloy wheels. XSE ups the ante with 18-inch wheels, LED fog lights, chrome front grille surround, and an available innovative Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS). AFS―available only on XSE CVT―allows for the focused distribution of light in an area that matches the vehicle's speed and steering angle. The Bi-Beam LED units move vertically and horizontally to provide optimal light output by analyzing steering angle, vehicle speed, and the vehicle's longitudinal axes angle to adjust lamps.

 

Corolla Hatchback's color range includes the new-for-2019 color Rival Blue, as well as Blizzard Pearl, Silver Metallic, Midnight Black, Galactic Aqua Mica, Scarlet, and Oxide Bronze.

 

Corolla Hatchback's seamless unification of comfort and sporty controllability begins at its TNGA C platform. The compact structure employs a mixture of adhesives, spot welding, and additional bracing―top to bottom, side to side―for the benefits of driver controllability and low fuel consumption. On-road feel and fuel efficiency is further refined through the extensive use of aluminum and high- and ultra-high tensile steel in the lighter-weight chassis and body. In fact, torsional rigidity is improved a massive 60 percent compared to its predecessor.

 

blogentry-114362-0-76517400-1530070807_thumb.jpgAffixed to this musculature are revised front and rear suspensions. Its front MacPherson strut setup's geometry is changed (i.e. updated bound stopper clearance; stabilizer location) and incorporates other key augmentations like revised coil spring rate and damping force, and reduced friction in sliding parts. This all makes for a high-quality steering feel, ride comfort, and handling stability.

 

 

blogentry-114362-0-74383400-1530070796_thumb.jpgAt the Corolla Hatchback's rear multi-link suspension with stabilizer bar, responsiveness is sharpened through updated shock absorbers and springs, and like the front, geometry is slightly modified. Lower arm locations have moved (for improved toe-in angle during higher-speed maneuvering), as has shock absorber placement (moved forward for better cargo capacity and reduced longitudinal low frequency input). Overall, front and rear suspension friction has been reduced by 40 percent, and its center of gravity is cut by a substantial 0.8 inches.

 

The end result: A Corolla Hatchback that possesses an uncanny blend of balance, composure, and feel that'll have its driver pining for windy roads―time and time again.

wasted that they did not use the BRZ chassis and just extend it to cater to rear wheel drive. Add a 48V hybrid and can have a bit of a balanced car

We can understand as the no. of cars coming daily on the roads, congestion level increased. This time COROLLA finds the solution with a compact size so far as other company doing in the market. In Dubai there are many Rental Cars company are also using such kind of compact sizes of cars to delivers the best cars for clients.

looks like a refresh auris

    Does a coupe have to be pretty? We test the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe!

    Idris is back and this time we are testing another controversial BMW! We get down low with the car to look at the details that make the 2 Series Gran Coupe more than just a four-door with a sloping roof. Of course, what many of you would be concerned about would be if there is sufficient space at the rear for those unfortunate enough to have to use the rear doors. Idris looks like he is alright back there (matching clothing and seat colours entirely coincidental). But you will want to watch the video if you're planning on regularly squeezing three in there. And if you're looking for an interior that will wow passengers, the 2 Series Gran Coupe sports BMW's latest Operating System 7.0, delivering you the suite of BMW's connected services. Join us for the drive in the video! If you like your steering wheels thicc, this is something you'll want to consider.

    We do not encourage this, but here's how you can ride 'like a boss'

    As the demand for food deliveries increase due to our current circuit breaker situation, it is only natural to see an increase in the amount of bikes fulfilling the food delivery demand.  Check out how this motorcyclist takes in a hard day's of work by riding in a relaxed manner on the road. Spotted by someone on the SLE on the 4th of May, this grabfood rider can be seen in the video with his legs crossed while using his mobile phone simultaneously. This is definitely not the safest way to ride but we doubt he is breaking any laws from doing so. That said, some of the comments by neitzens on SG Road Vigilante's page didn't agree and weren't so kind... What do you guys think? Let us know in the comment box below! 95500445_2129716763840421_303453959922408449_n.mp4

    Kudos to our Special Operation Command for stopping this cyclist!

    Our Circuit Breaker measures sure bring up quite a few weird incidents. I mean why would you even cycle in an expressway tunnel? As seen on ROAD.sg's website, it did seemed like someone cycled along our Marina Coastal Expressway on the 9th of April and was stopped by a Special Operation Command Police vehicle. As uncommon as it is to see a cyclist on an expressway, it is even rarer to see someone from the SOC stop a traffic offender as it is not part of their job scope. Kudos to the fellas for going the extra mile!  Even netizens on the facebook page were also grateful to police force! videoplayback.mp4

    Honda Stream gets Covid-19 slammed out of it by BMW 6 Series at Changi Village

    This accident happened at Changi Village hawker centre carpark. You can watch the full video of the accident below courtesy of Roads.sg (if you haven't already seen it)   What’s happening Honda Stream exits the carpark and attempts to make a right turn on a two-way road. The driver seems oblivious to the fact that there's a stop sign and inches the car onto the main road. The Honda Steam driver then jams the brakes and in less than a second, what looks like a BMW 6 Series crashes into it. Hard. Different points of view If you replay the video, you'll notice that even after the crash, there were no cars that went past on the other side of the road. Meaning, the Honda Stream had more than enough time and space to avoid the accident. Jam break for what? The driver also ignored the stop sign and failed to do proper checks before moving off. On the other hand, based on the sheer force of impact, the BMW was going pretty fast too. What the people say This sounds legit. I think it's the Honda Stream driver's fault. The BMW driver sway balls. Also, there's a lesson here people - Stay the #$%& at home.
