The facelifted Corolla Hatch has landed in South Africa, with Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) announcing pricing and spec for the updated variant. See pricing below…

Corolla Hatch

Similar to the refreshed Corolla sedan (see pricing here), the exterior of the Hatch has been given “subtle yet effective” cosmetic enhancements. These include a broader front air dam incorporating C-shaped fog-lamp bezels at the outer edges. Xr models gain bright chrome detailing. The revised headlamp clusters feature Bi-LED lighting elements with larger J-shaped DRLs. The lower bumper features an all-black design. Xs models ride on 16-inch alloys, while Xr variants gain turbine-shaped 18-inch wheels. Exterior hues include Glacier White, Satin Silver, Graphite Grey and Platinum White Pearl, Vibrant Red, Luminous Orange, Attitude Black and Dark Blue Metallics. Xr models can also be had with a contrast roof. 

Inside, all variants are fitted with a new digital instrument cluster. Xs models feature a 7.0-Inch unit with a large centrally housed speedometer and integrated multi-Information display. Xr derivatives gain a 12.3-inch item. Xs models further feature an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The new-generation set-up in the Xr models features voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and built-in sat-nav. All variants feature Toyota’s Safety Sense 3.0 suite of safety systems as standard. 

Corolla Hatch

Toyota has discontinued the previous model’s 1.2-litre power unit for the facelifted model. The hatchback is now available with the Japanese firm’s fifth-gen hybrid system and 2.0-litre petrol engine. 

The 1.8-litre petrol-electric engine has a peak power output of 103 kW. Toyota claims an average fuel consumption figure of 3.5 L/100 km. The 2.0-litre internal combustion engine produces 126 kW and 203 Nm, 1 kW and 3 Nm more than before. This model has a claimed fuel consumption figure of 6.0 L/100 km. All engine options are coupled with a CVT. 


As standard, all models are sold with a six services/90 000 km service plan. The petrol model comes with a three-year/100 000 km warranty, while the hybrid variants feature an eight-year/195 000 km warranty.
