2. Toyota Corolla 2019 Cons

“Not a hot Hatch”

This is the verdict of many driving enthusiasts. It is pretty good but it is still lacking in performance compared to its rivals. (Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf, and Mazda3)

Small Cargo Space

Has maximum storage of 0.51 cubic meter this is smaller compared to other classes. 

The Etune

This feature does not please everyone especially the Android users. They do not have an Android option at the moment. This is a drawback since other rivals already offer android options.
