  • Say hello to the 2019 Toyota Corolla wagon

In combination, these measures allow the Corolla Touring Sports to have a low center of gravity. However, it isn't just merely a variation of the hatchback.

The new wagon rides on a 2700mm wheelbase, up 60mm from the hatch.

The new Corolla Touring Sports has the additional benefits of a front to rear seat couple distance of 928 mm for ample rear seat passenger space, and a generous, 598 litre VDA loadspace incorporating numerous aids for to practicality and convenience.

On the outside, the look of the Corolla hatchback also appears to have been carried over to the Touring Sports model.

Available features include a head-up display, the Toyota Touch infotainment system, wireless smartphone charging, and the JBL GreenEdge Premium audio system.

The new Corolla Touring Sports features an all-new interior designed to create a spacious, modern and cohesive cabin environment in which new textures, colours and trim combine to offer the highest levels of visual and tactile quality. There's still the aggressive looking front fascia with angular headlights coupled with a wide front grill.

Further back, a rising shoulder line and flared wheel arches mark it out from the side view, while a sloping roofline and steeply raked rear window are meant to give the estate an appearance more akin to a shooting brake.

With a new 2.0 liter full hybrid powertrain joining the engine line-up, the new 2018 Corolla model range also marks the debut of Toyota's dual hybrid strategy.

Under the hood, the Touring Sports uses the same engines as its hatchback sibling. Other variants are powered by a 1.8-liter powerplant that puts out 122 PS or a 2.0-liter powertrain that pushes 180 PS; both of which are hybrids.

Exclusive to the segment, the Corolla Touring Sports' dynamic design is further emphasised through a range of four optional bi-tone colour schemes available from launch.

Toyota has previewed the new Corolla Touring Sports. By two-tone they mean a black finished roof, roof pilars and a front lower grill surround combined with the vehicle's base color. It accompanies the latest Corolla hatchback that was first revealed in Geneva a few months ago.
