The compact 2024 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is currently being shipped to dealerships across the U.S. for $23,355. In addition, the mid-level Corolla Hatchback Nightshade can be had from $24,355, while the range-topping Corolla Hatchback XSE comes in at $26,655.
The Toyota Corolla features a 169-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a CVT and front-wheel drive. The sedan also offers a hybrid option. Acceleration is considered inadequate in tests. The Corolla offers a comfortable ride and improved agility compared to previous models. The SE and XSE trims have sportier suspensions and larger wheels.
However, the steering is not as engaging as rivals like the Mazda 3 and Honda Civic. Braking performance was average in our tests, with stopping distances ranging from 174 to 183 feet.
