Toyota launches All-New Corolla Cross SUV
October 12, 2022
The all-new Toyota Corolla Cross small SUV has arrived in Australian showrooms with advanced safety and connected technologies, excellent packaging and practicality, and the choice of petrol and hybrid powertrains and two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Sitting alongside the C-HR between the smaller Yaris Cross and family favourite RAV4, the all-new Corolla Cross is set to raise the benchmark in small SUVs with class-leading technology designed to connect drivers with their cars more than ever before.
Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said that its combination of advanced connected technology, flexible stylish packaging and hybrid performance would help set it apart in the small SUV segment.
“Toyota Australia is always looking to bring class-leading products to market, and we are thrilled to expand our comprehensive SUV line-up with the addition of the Corolla Cross,” he said.
“The Corolla Cross offers the richest suite of active safety and Connected Services technologies of any Toyota model to date, with a range of powertrains and trim levels certain to provide plenty of appeal.”
Built on the same TNGA-C platform as its Corolla hatch and sedan siblings, the all-new Corolla Cross offers significantly higher ride height, interior flexibility and class-leading boot space up to 436 litres (GX & GXL petrol) with the rear seat backs in place.
Its stylish exterior design is reflected inside where high-quality materials and finish give the car a premium ambience, matched by a dynamic and comfortable drive experience.
The Corolla Cross range opens from $33,000 plus on-road costs1 for the petrol-powered GX variant, with three trim levels on offer consisting of GX, GXL and the flagship Atmos.
Customers can also choose the GX with a fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain for just $2,500 extra, with the GX 2WD hybrid priced at $35,5001.
The GX is distinguished on the outside by 17-inch alloy wheels, LED head and tail-lights, automatic high beam, daytime running lights, heated and auto retractable door mirrors and a shark fin antenna.
Inside, GX grades come standard with automatic climate control, a 7.0-inch digital multi information display (MID), electric park brake, smart entry and start, fabric seats, 60:40 split-folding rear seats and a luggage cover.
The Corolla Cross is the first Toyota in Australia to feature the new-generation Toyota multimedia system.
The system can be controlled via a large 8.0-inch touchscreen display or steering wheel controls, and offers wireless Apple CarPlay®2, wired Android Auto™3, DAB+ digital radio4 and superb sound reproduction from a six-speaker audio system.
Building on the infotainment system, the Corolla Cross features the most comprehensive Toyota Connected Services5functionality of any Toyota model to date, using a data communication module (DCM) inside the vehicle and the myToyota Connect smartphone app to provide real-time remote information and convenience for owners.
Through the myToyota Connect app, owners can undertake such things as remotely check the status of the doors and lights, access information such as the vehicle’s last known location and recent trips, or start the engine or climate control.
The upgraded Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver assistance features offers new technologies including lane change assist and safe exit assist, providing further security and peace of mind for drivers.6
The mid-range GXL is priced from $36,750 for the petrol, $39,250 for the 2WD hybrid and $42,2501 for the AWD hybrid, that features an additional electric motor to drive the rear axle for added traction.
GXL grades add high-grade LED headlights, front fog lights, roof rails and rear privacy glass.
Inside, GXL gains combination leather-accented and fabric upholstery, leather-accented shift knob and steering wheel, electrochromatic rearview mirror, dual-zone climate control and two extra USB-C ports in the rear of the centre console.
The upgraded multimedia system features a larger 10.5-inch touchscreen display and gains satellite navigation7 as standard, with extra safety features including a panoramic view monitor and parking support brake6.
The flagship Atmos is priced from $43,550 for the petrol, $46,050 for the 2WD hybrid and $49,050 for the AWD hybrid1, and is differentiated externally by 18-inch alloys, a panoramic moon roof and a power rear hatch with kick sensor.
Additional interior features include leather-accented upholstery, heated front seats and steering wheel, eight-way adjustable powered driver’s seat, a full digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster display, nanoeTM® X8 air conditioning technology, illuminated entry and a wireless phone charger9.
Safety equipment is boosted further with the addition of an enhanced panoramic view monitor, Advanced Park Assist and pedestrian detection for the parking support brake system6.
Power for the petrol variants comes courtesy of a thermally efficient 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder engine developing 126kW at 6600rpm and 202Nm from 4400-4900rpm, driving the front wheels via a sequential ten-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Hybrid versions employ a 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine teamed to an electric motor on the front axle for a combined maximum power output of 146kW and a low 4.3l/100km10 fuel consumption on the combined cycle test.
Hybrid AWD variants add a second electric drive motor on the rear axle while fuel consumption remains as low as 4.4l/100km10 on the combined cycle test.
Eight exterior paint colours are available on the Corolla Cross, consisting of Glacier White, Frosted White, Stunning Silver, Eclipse Black, Atomic Rush, Lunar Blue, Moondust Grey and Jungle Khaki.11
