The 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback XSE is a high-revving hatchback with an easy and enjoyable manual transmission. Watch our review for all the details.

If you need a drinking game, take a swig every time Edmunds special correspondent Elana Scherr calls the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback XSE "fun." It's a lot. But that's because the car is fun, and that surprised our reviewer, who wasn't expecting an enjoyable experience. In a little car that's perfect for the big city, Elana had a blast banging gears around downtown Los Angeles in the Flame Blue Corolla. If you've been considering a manual transmission, but fear learning how to shift or worry about sitting in traffic, consider the six-speed Corolla.

Elana drove the hatchback XSE with the 2.0-liter non-turbocharged inline four-cylinder and the six-speed manual transmission.
