Toyota has just unveiled an all-new version of its highly popular Corolla compact sedan, a vehicle that promises to be sportier, more luxurious, and more high-tech than today’s model. But while this upcoming 2020 Corolla is drawing headlines, what about the 2019 Toyota Corolla sedan that’s on sale today? Can it keep up with the newly updated 2019 Chevrolet Cruze?
As you compare the Corolla and Cruze sedans, you’ll find some areas where each model was designed for different tastes — and others where one of the two is simply superior. (There are also Cruze and Corolla hatchbacks, but the 2019 Corolla hatch is related to the upcoming 2020 sedan rather than today’s model; it has its own unique pros and cons. We’re focusing today on the more popular four-door sedans.) We’ll break down the details and crown an overall winner.
