Toyota has officially unveiled the 2022 Corolla Cross SUV. Like other Corolla vehicles, the Corolla Cross is affordable and has features not found in the crossover segment.
Toyota claims the Corolla Cross offers small-car handling and large crossover capabilities. The new Toyota Corolla Cross will hit showrooms in October starting at $ 22,195 for the base front-wheel-drive model. All trim levels are available with all-wheel drive for an additional $ 1,300.
Toyota makes the Cross in the United States at its new plant in Huntsville, Alabama. This manufacturing facility can produce 150,000 Corolla Cross vehicles a year, indicating that Toyota expects strong sales from its new crossover.
All versions use the same 169bhp 2.0-liter Dynamic Force engine. The engine is paired with a CVT with the physical first gear. In addition, the vehicle can tow a load weighing up to 680 kg. All-wheel-drive models use Dynamic Torque Control, capable of transferring up to 50% of the vehicle's power to the rear wheels.
The Corolla Cross is offered in three flavors: L, LE, and XLE. The first two versions have a cloth interior: the L is available in light gray only, and the LE is available with a black interior. XLE buyers receive SofTex seats in Macadamia / Mocha or Black. A 10-way power driver's seat and heated front seats are standard on XLE models. The basic configuration is equipped with a seven-inch multimedia touch screen with an eight-inch screen on other trim levels. All support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
