The history of the Japanese model in the US market has been chaotic. It was first introduced in the 1980s, then discontinued for several decades before making a comeback in 2019 and receiving an update for the 2025 model year.

This week, the Japanese automaker revealed the grades and pricing for the 2025 Corolla Hatchback, and for those anticipating more accessible pricing, the revelation may prove somewhat surprising, as Toyota positions the top-tier XSE grade at prices closely aligned with those of entry-level muscle cars from American manufacturers.

Comprising three grades – SE, Nightshade, and XSE – the model lineup shares notable features, including Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 and an 8-inch Toyota Audio Multimedia system supporting wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Built on the TNGA-C platform, all variants feature MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension, powered by a singular 2.0-liter Dynamic-Force direct-injection inline four-cylinder engine, delivering 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft. of torque. Remarkably, Toyota projects a fuel economy of 33 mpg combined for the top-tier XSE trim.

Distinguishing the three grades are various special features, most notably the wheels. The SE rides on 16-inch alloy wheels, while the Nightshade upgrades to 18 inches. Similarly, the XSE employs 18-inch wheels, albeit in a graphite finish, distinct from the bronze option. Offering a diverse color palette, Toyota presents seven main hues alongside two-tone combinations, including a Midnight Black metallic roof option.

The 2025 Corolla hatchbacks, although not yet officially listed by the Japanese automaker, maintain pricing consistency with previous iterations. The entry-level SE, equipped with features such as single-zone automatic climate control, electronic parking brake, and four USB ports, starts from $23,505, while the XSE, boasting dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, and a JBL audio system, commands a price of $26,805. Nestled between them, the Nightshade begins at $24,505.
