Comparing Interior Space

It is important to note that though the Corolla Hatchback has more cargo space, it does sacrifice some passenger room.

While the Corolla Hatchback only has 95.7 cubic feet of total passenger volume and 29.9 inches of rear-seat legroom.

They produce 139 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque and 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque, respectively. The Corolla Hatchback comes standard with the 2.0-litre.
