Toyota Corolla iM 2018

Car Review: 2018 Toyota Corolla iM

One last hurrah for this former Scion-badged hatchback before its replacement comes next year


Your last chance to get a new Toyota Corolla iM is approaching quickly. Although the iM was added to Toyota’s lineup just last year after it spent a year as a Scion, it will soon be replaced by the 2019 Corolla Hatchback, which is completely redesigned, sportier, and will be arriving at dealers in August. But even though it’s at the end of its life cycle, the Corolla iM still has more to offer than the Corolla sedan, and buyers will likely see some incentives as dealers clear it out of their showrooms to make room for its replacement.

While the Corolla iM’s somewhat aggressive styling makes it look like a potential hot hatch, its lukewarm performance and handling make it more of an everyday workhorse rather than a corner-carving speedster. Suspension is tuned for comfort rather than for keeping the body parallel with the ground while cornering aggressively. There’s a fair amount of body roll through curves that belies its sporty silhouette, and steering is light and lacks engaging feedback. This is a fair trade off for most drivers though, since the iM’s cushy and compliant suspension soaks up bumps competently and without harshness, and provides a comfortable, quiet ride.

The iM is powered by a 1.8-litre, 137-horspower four that produces 127 lb.-ft. of peak torque, and again it emphasises the iM’s more pedestrian Corolla lineage. Although those numbers don’t seem that impressive, the Corolla iM actually launches with gusto from a stop and gets up to cruising speed quickly. You’re reminded of its modest output, however, when you pull out to make a pass and have to drop two or sometimes three gears on its six-speed manual to complete the task quickly. The engine is mechanically very quiet from the cabin, so much so that you often find yourself pulling a gear longer than unusual, especially if the sound-system is adjusted at a moderate level.

The one redeeming feature in the iM that does make driving it entertaining is the availability of a manual, which despite a longish throw shifts with near buttery smoothness. Clutch effort is also remarkably light, feeling almost like the pedal isn’t connected to anything. If you find manual gear changes too laborious you can also get a CVT for $835 above the manual’s $22,650 starting price.

Aside from the destination charge and taxes, that price won’t change much because there’s only one trim level to choose from, and it includes power locks and windows, manual tilt and telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, a seven-inch touchscreen, a great-sounding, Bluetooth-enabled six-speaker Pioneer sound system, a rear-view camera, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Unfortunately there’s no embedded navigation system, not even as an option, so you’ll either have to use your smart phone, or buy an aftermarket GPS unit. If you do use an add-on system, though, there is a highly polished vertical surface to the right of the touchscreen that makes an ideal and secure mounting point for a suction-cup base that puts the unit within easy reach.

The sub-compact five-door segment isn’t renowned for high luxury, so the iM’s interior is unembellished, but nonetheless inviting and roomy. There’s nothing in the interior that is designed to overwhelm or impress, but what is there is functional; the front seats are manually adjustable but they are comfortable; there’s a centre armrest the opens up to reveal a small storage compartment. Controls are within easy reach, though curiously the seat heat switches are located behind a door at the bottom of the centre stack, where you’ll also find the USB and auxiliary ports and a smart-phone cubby.

Two adults can fit in the rear seats unencumbered (Toyota claims the iM seats five comfortably but that’s an optimistic goal), and there’s plenty of storage space behind the rear seats for a full load of groceries with space to spare. Drop the 60/40-split seatbacks and you can fit surprisingly large boxes of Ikea furniture back there. One minor oversight is that there are no grab straps on the seatbacks to allow you to pull them back up from behind the car, so you have to lift them up through the rear doors. Access to the cargo is easy with a low rear deck height, and the floor is flat. Lifting the floor of the cargo compartment exposes a space-saver spare tire.

The iM includes Toyota Safety Sense with forward collision mitigation, auto high beams, and a lane departure warning that’s probably the least intrusive I’ve ever experienced, emitting a gentle beep when you sway off centre.

Despite its modest performance, the iM returns good fuel mileage, averaging 7.5L/100 km of about two-thirds urban driving, which is a bit better than the claimed 7.9L combined. That makes its 53-litre fuel tank good for about 700 km of driving before needing a fill up.

If you’re into hot hatches, you might be turned onto the Corolla iM by its sporty silhouette, but you’ll soon discover that it looks sportier than it drives and might be disappointed by its road manners. What it is, is a comfortable commuter that is very well equipped, and if you factor in potential future dealer incentives, it’s certainly worth taking one final look.

Specs & Features



If you’re looking for a safe and reliable small car, we think the 2018 Toyota Corolla iM is a very good choice. The hatchback allows easy loading of bikes, skis or cargo, a bonus for drivers with active lifestyle, and standard driver-assist safety features include pre-collision warning and braking.

If you’re looking for a low-priced hatchback, the Nissan Versa Note undercuts the Corolla iM by about $5,000, although it’s not as well equipped. You’ll find more features in a Mazda3, VW Golf or Chevrolet Cruze, options such as leather seating, Apple CarPlay, a power moonroof and heated seats.

What’s New for 2018

There are no major changes for the 2018 Toyota Corolla iM.

2018 Toyota Corolla Im Expert Review

Offering a bit more sportiness and a lot more versatility than the Corolla sedan, the 2018 Toyota Corolla iM hatchback gives budget-minded buyers all the quality and high resale that come with owning a Toyota at a price that won’t break the bank. Because most cars bundle popular options into pricey packages, the iM’s one-size-fits-all mono-spec equipment list gives customers popular features that can cost hundreds, even thousands more on a comparably equipped Mazda3, VW Golf or Ford Focus. And, although its fuel economy is impressive, the Corolla iM’s modest 137 horsepower pales in comparison to the competition. Need another reason to buy a Corolla iM? Toyota Safety Sense C (TSS-C) is standard on every car.

What the 2018 Toyota Corolla iM lacks in power, it more than makes up for in efficiency. The 137-horsepower 1.8-liter engine is a mileage champ, but if you’re looking to get the most of the engine’s ability, we suggest opting for the 6-speed manual. The story improves when we get to the ride and handling department. The Corolla iM’s light body and taut suspension make it quite enjoyable on curving mountain roads, yet amazingly maneuverable in tight city confines. We dare say it’s as enjoyable as the more robust Mazda3 and far more connected to the road than a Kia Rio or VW Golf. Best of all, unlike a Mini Cooper or Fiat 500, the Corolla iM’s ride isn’t harsh or punishing over rough pavement. The cabin is fairly quiet at highway speeds, and what noise does get through can quickly be mitigated by turning up the iM’s excellent standard 6-speaker Display audio system.

The 2018 Corolla iM comes as one, well-equipped model, taking all the hassle out of buying a car. Most of the iM’s best features are optional on other cars, leaving buyers with only two choices: transmission and color.

TSS-C is Toyota’s comprehensive suite of driver assists that includes pre-collision braking, lane-departure alert and auto high beams. Where other manufacturers make you buy expensive packages or top-line trims to get these features, the Corolla iM delivers them as part of its standard-equipment list.

Boasting an edgy-yet-tasteful layout, the Corolla iM’s cockpit emphasizes functionality. The audio and climate controls are as straightforward as they come, while symmetrical armrests and an adjustable steering column yield an appropriately neutral driving position. Power seats are not available, but the 6-way front buckets leave nothing to be desired in comfort or lateral support. And while rear legroom can’t measure up to rivals like the Mazda3, Kia Rio5 and Volkswagen Golf on paper, the Corolla iM’s rear quarters feel plenty roomy in the outboard seating positions. Space behind the rear seat stands at 20.8 cubic feet, topping the Mazda3 and Rio5.

Design-wise, the Toyota’s Corolla iM hatchback for 2018 keenly embraces the tuxedo T-shirt philosophy: It wants to be formal, but it’s also here to party. A sweptback roofline, aggressive lower body panels, and LED running lights and taillights suggest all the makings of a hot hatch, while projector-beam headlights and a versatile liftback speak to the iM’s practical side. For those who desire some additional show without the go, Toyota offers a host of dealer-installed accessories like TRD lowering springs, carbon-fiber window trim and body graphics.

Every Corolla iM comes with 17-inch alloys, LED running lights and taillights, power-folding/heated side mirrors, power windows and door locks, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a nifty 4.2-inch driver-information display, a rearview camera, plus a 6-speaker Display audio system with Bluetooth and a USB port. Toyota’s Safety Sense C driver-assist suite adds pre-collision braking, lane-departure alert and automatic high beams, as well as eight airbags including front-seat side, side-curtain and a driver’s-knee airbag. Moonroof lovers, you’re out of luck.

The Corolla iM’s mono-spec packaging structure means that aside from the transmission and exterior color, your options are limited to some dealer-installed equipment such as a navigation system, the aHa Radio app, body-side ground effects, side graphics, rear wind deflector, paint protector and interior lighting.

The Toyota Corolla iM is powered by Toyota’s 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine with Valvematic continuously variable-valve timing, which is also used in the Corolla sedan. Developing 137 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque, it can be paired with a standard 6-speed manual or optional continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) featuring a 7-speed simulated sequential-shift mode. Beyond altering shift points, there’s a Sport setting that also quickens throttle response and adds weighting to the electric power steering. Combined fuel economy averages rank in the low-30-mpg range and, as you might have guessed, all Corolla iM’s run on regular gasoline.

1.8-liter inline-4
137 horsepower @ 6,100 rpm
126 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 27/35 mpg (manual), 28/36 mpg (automatic)

The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the 2018 Toyota Corolla iM 5-door compact begins just under $19,750, including destination and delivery fees. Adding an automatic transmission to the mix still keeps the price under $20,500. If this sounds like a terrific value, you would be right. Similarly equipped models from Mazda, Ford and Volkswagen linger in the $23,000 range and up, and none of them can match the Toyota Corolla iM when it comes to long-term ownership costs and resale value. But regardless of which model you choose, checking out KBB.com’s Fair Purchase Price tool is the best way to ensure you get the best deal on your next car.

Best Deals on a 2018 Toyota Corolla for November

This November, Toyota is luring used-car shoppers with Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) finance purchase options applicable to the 2018 Corolla sedan and hatchback.

The 1.99% financing can be extended for up to 60 months, and the offer officially expires November 30, 2020.

While it’s generally true that a CPO used car costs more than a regular used vehicle, the pros outweigh the cons. That’s because a CPO car or truck comes with extras like extended warranties and roadside assistance.

Advantages specific to Toyota’s CPO program include an extended and transferable 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. All Toyota CPO vehicles need to have a fully documented service history, clear Carfax report, and pass a 160-point quality inspection.

Хэтчбек Toyota Corolla отличился от Ауриса силовой установкой

Длина модели равна 4370 мм, а колёсная база — 2640, всё как у Ауриса. В ширину пятидверка насчитывает 1791, а в высоту — 1438 мм.

Пятидверка Toyota Auris всегда была тесно связана с Короллой (седаном). Машина прошлого поколения в США продавалась как раз под вторым именем (точнее, как Toyota Corolla iM, а перед тем как Scion iM). Потому не стало сюрпризом появление модели Toyota Corolla Hatchback нового поколения вскоре после европейского Ауриса. Но автомобиль, чей дебют на публике состоится через несколько дней в Нью-Йорке, не повторяет Auris полностью. У американской сестры оказалась иная гамма двигателей.

Напомним, что Auris, а значит и его клон под именем Corolla Hatchback, перебрался на модульную архитектуру TNGA. На ней же вскоре выйдет Corolla-седан.

В Европе Аурису подарили один бензиновый наддувный агрегат 1.2, а ещё две гибридные установки на базе бензиновых «атмосферников» 1.8 и 2.0 (с дизелями машина распрощалась). На рынке же Северной Америки де-факто та же пятидверка появилась с бензиновой двухлитровой «четвёркой» без гибридной добавки. Во всяком случае пока заявлен только один такой агрегат. Это мотор M20A-FKS из сравнительно новой серии двигателей Dynamic Force Engine.

В базовое оснащение Короллы для США входит мультимедийная система Entune 3.0 с экраном на восемь дюймов, интерфейсами Apple CarPlay, Siri Eyes Free, Amazon Alexa, Wi-Fi и шестью динамиками. За доплату или в старших версиях их будет восемь (на 800 Вт), плюс цифровое радио, навигация и так далее.

Мощность и крутящий момент американское отделение Тойоты огласит чуть позже (ранее, при рассказе о линии Dynamic Force, фирмой озвучивалась предварительная отдача двухлитровой версии — 171 л.с. и 205 Н•м). К особенностям мотора относятся: комбинированный впрыск (распределённый и непосредственный), изменяемые фазы газораспределения на впуске (VVT-iE, с электрическим актуатором) и выпуске (VVT-i), высокая степень сжатия 13:1 и длинный ход поршня, сёдла клапанов с лазерным плакированием, оптимизированные рубашки охлаждения блока и головки блока и, конечно, изменённые (по сравнению с предшествующими моторами) угол наклона осей клапанов и форма впускных и выпускных каналов. Тут принят ряд мер по снижению трения и шума. При всём этом новый агрегат 2.0 меньше по размерам и легче, чем «четвёрка» 1.8 на Королле iM уходящего поколения.

По сути, Dynamic-Shift CVT — это то же самое, что ранее было названо Direct Shift-CVT, то есть вариатор нового типа, скрещивающий принципы обычного вариатора и «робота».

Покупателям американской Короллы предоставлен выбор коробок передач: вариатор Dynamic-Shift CVT или шестиступенчатая «механика» iMT с автоматическим согласованием оборотов двигателя при переключении вниз. Вариатор особенно интересен. Разгон тут начинается на паре шестерён launch gear, идентичной по конструкции первой передаче в классической «механике» или простом «роботе». Затем автоматика переключается на вариаторный блок. Такая комбинация позволила увеличить диапазон передаточных чисел до 7,5 и обеспечить линейный отклик на нажатие газа при интенсивном ускорении с места. А ещё коробка Dynamic-Shift CVT умеет симулировать десять фиксированных ступеней. У неё есть спортивный режим и подрулевые лепестки.

Королле инженеры отрядили фары Bi-Beam LED и полностью светодиодные фонари. Ради снижения массы задняя дверца сделана из полимеров TSOP (Toyota Super Olefin Polymer) и ABS.

На Королле-хэтчбеке состоялся дебют нового комплекса безопасности Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 в США. Он включает в себя автоматическое торможение с детекцией пешеходов и велосипедистов, слежение за разметкой и ассистент движения в полосе, динамический радарный круиз-контроль и автоматическое переключение дальнего света. Камера заднего вида на Королле входит «в базу», как и семь подушек безопасности, а вот контроль за слепыми зонами зеркал зависит от комплектации. В продажу Toyota Corolla Hatchback поступит летом.

The 2018 Toyota Corolla iM is the compact hatch that’s always ready for the next epic adventure – and no wonder: It combines everything that Canadians love about the Corolla, plus the versatility and extra capacity of a hatchback.

2018 Corolla iM Brochure

“Hit the road and embrace your weekend: that’s the message of the Corolla iM,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “This stylish compact hatch is a perfect daily driver that adds plenty of versatility for getaways, shopping trips or a night out with friends – whatever your adventure is, the Corolla iM is ready to help make it epic.”

All 2018 Toyota Corolla iM models feature modern, aerodynamic styling, with side skirts and a rear lip spoiler. The body style is equipped with many premium features as standard – including 17” alloy wheels, dual power adjustable/folding and heated exterior mirrors with integrated signal lamps, LED daytime running lights and rear tail lamps and more.

Inside, the 2018 Corolla iM features a sporty interior with room for up to five adults. The 60/40 split folding rear seat maximizes versatility, opening up 0.588 cubic meters (20.8 cubic feet) of space for packages, luggage, sports gear, or whatever you need to make your next trip an adventure.

The interior features piano black instrument panel trim and is packed with premium features – including heated front sport seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, 7” touchscreen Display Audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel-mounted controls, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, a 4.2” multi-information display, illuminated vanity mirrors, map lamps, 12v power supply for personal electronics, keyless entry and more.

Under the hood, a 137 peak horsepower 1.8L VALVEMATIC four-cylinder engine is paired with a choice of six-speed manual transmission or a Continuously Variable Transmission with intelligent shift (CVTi-S). Either way, this translates into big driving fun, enhanced with highly responsive electric power steering, a double-wishbone rear suspension, and the confidence of front wheel drive.

The 2018 Toyota Corolla iM also packs impressive safety features, headlined by Toyota Safety Sense C. This bundle of active safety technologies – including the Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams – enhances driver capabilities to mitigate collisions, stay in lane, and see at night. Other safety technologies standard on all 2018 Corolla iM models include the Toyota Star Safety System, eight air bags, a back-up camera, front seats with whiplash injury-lessening headrests, tire pressure monitoring system and more.

The 2018 Toyota Corolla iM is offered in a single, fully loaded model with a choice of manual transmission (Starting MSRP: $22,650) or CVTi-S (Starting MSRP: $23,485, and is now on sale.

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback vs 2018 Toyota Corolla iM

Like the 2018 Toyota Corolla iM, the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is a five-door variant of the popular Toyota Corolla sedan and perfect for drivers who want versatility and increased cargo storage. The 2019 Corolla Hatchback is all-new for the 2019 model year and is replacing the outgoing Corolla iM in the Toyota lineup. Both vehicles share similar footprints, and the name change for the 2019 model year is likely just highlighting the transition from a bare-bones model to a feature-stacked yet practical counterpart that is more in line with driver demand.

The 2019 Corolla Hatchback was recently released, and car shoppers will likely be able to find both the 2019 Corolla Hatchback and 2018 Corolla iM available at Toyota dealerships for quite some time.

2018 Toyota Corolla iM

Standard and Available Features

Like we mentioned above, the 2018 Corolla iM has a focus on budget and practicality and comes with features that drivers need for a comfortable and safe ride but not much more. It’s great for car shoppers who are most concerned about the bottom line and don’t need all of the frills traditionally found in a new vehicle purchase. The 2018 Corolla iM comes in just one trim level with a standard manual transmission or an optional automatic. Standard features include LED daytime running lights, heated side mirrors with LED turn signals, dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, split-folding seats, two USB ports, and the Toyota Safety Sense C bundle.

The 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback with a manual transmission comes with a slightly higher starting MSRP than the 2018 Corolla iM, but we feel the price is fair considering it’s a small bump and comes with a long list of additional features including LED headlights, selectable drive modes, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 bundle, and more. Corolla Hatchback models with the automatic transmission add even more features including the all-new Adaptive Front Lighting System.
