MILFORD, Conn., Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ --

The 2019 class of Toyota vehicles have been slowly arriving at the Colonial Toyota showroom. However, there are still two highly anticipated models that seem to be on the minds of potential buyers. The all-new 2019 Toyota RAV4 and 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback are among the most technologically advanced vehicles the manufacturer has ever produced in these automotive industry segments. Shoppers considering their options for a vehicle with a flexible interior, excellent fuel economy estimates and proven reliability really won't have a bad choice to make. In order to give potential customers the best information available, the two models have been compared against their most likely in-segment rivals.  

In the long history of Toyota selling vehicles in the United States, no other model has been as successful as the Corolla compact sedan. That story is getting a new chapter for the upcoming model year. A comparison of the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback vs. 2019 Chevy Cruze Hatch actually reveals some very interesting information. The all-new 2019 Corolla Hatchback is equipped with an updated naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine making nearly 170 horsepower.  

Not only does the new Corolla model have better performance output scores than its Chevy counterpart, but it also records better fuel economy scores. The 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback has Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy estimates of 32 miles per gallon in the city and up to 42 miles per gallon on the highway. Buyers choosing the hatchback version of the Chevy Cruze can expect efficiency scores of 29 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. 

Crossover SUVs are the most universally popular vehicle platform currently on the market. Comparing the 2019 Toyota RAV4 against the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport shows just how far apart the options in this segment are. Official performance specs for the 2019 RAV4 haven't been released yet, but previous models have made more power than the Mitsubishi crossover SUV. However, where the new RAV4 really outshines the Outlander Sport is available technology. Toyota has equipped its popular crossover SUV with an embedded Wi-Fi hotspot and the next generation of its active safety systems.
