2018 SEMA Super Street Toyota Corolla Hatchback

Ever since the all-new 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback was introduced, fans have been clamoring for a more track-focused variant, something you could call a true hot hatch.

Well, thanks to Super Street magazine, we’ve already got it: a custom Corolla Hatchback with a meaner face and even meaner, track-ready parts.

Appearing at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the Super Street Toyota Corolla Hatchback boasts improved handling courtesy of an RS-R coilover suspension and Falken FK510 high-performance tires wrapped around lightweight Volk wheels.

Under the hood, Super Street added an HPS intake and A’PEXI quad-outlet exhaust with titanium tips. The team also added a front big-brake kit with Wilwood components to enhance braking performance.

Inside, little has changed other than the seats. It’s out with the stocks and in with a pair of Corbeau buckets, which will do a better job of keeping the driver — and likely terrified passenger — stable during the much more spirited driving this Corolla Hatchback can handle.

“Super Street offers its followers the latest and greatest automotive stories on the scene,” said Samuel Du, the magazine’s editor-in-chief. “Our Corolla Hatchback combines Japanese-inspired styling and custom-fitted parts. We wanted to make it into something you might see on the floor of the Tokyo Auto Salon.”

Super Street also installed a custom aero kit, which slightly sharpens the car’s appearance. It’s more subtle than a lot of exterior kits you see on these kinds of projects, but we like it. The Corolla Hatchback is already a looker to begin with.
