2021 Toyota Corolla Cross Debuts With Hybrid Power In Thailand

Size-wise, the Corolla Cross is slotted in between the C-HR and the top-selling RAV4, complementing the former as the more functional crossover. It measures 4,460mm (175.5 inches) long, 1,825mm (71.9 inches) wide, and 1,620mm (63.8 inches) high. The C-HR and Corolla Cross share the same 2,640mm (103.9 inches) wheelbase length.

 

As for the powertrain, the Corolla Cross was launched in Thailand with two options. First is the 1.8-liter 2ZR-FBE gasoline engine with 140 horsepower (104 kilowatts) and 129 pound-feet (175 Newton-meters) of torque, sent to the front wheels via a CVT.

 

On the other hand, a hybrid powertrain option is available, with a 600-volt electric motor supplementing the setup with 72 hp (54 kW) and 120 lb-ft (163 Nm) of twists. The electric motor works in conjunction with a 1.8-liter 2ZR-FXE mill that makes 98 hp (73 kW) and 105 lb-ft (142 Nm) of pull. The hybrid Corolla Cross comes with Toyota's e-CVT.

It's not a bad looking car, certainly much better than the CH-R, which looks like it fell out of a cereal box (not to mention the read light ripped straight off a Civic). Toyota have lifted their game in the last year, with both the new Camry and Corolla looking much more aggressive and stylish in my opinion. 

Very interested to see the pricing. It will be going head-to-head with the Mazda CX-30, which is receiving very positive reviews, and is priced rather competitively. It will be interesting to see if the heavier Hybrid Toyota is as agile and forgiving on the rather less forgiving Thai roads.

Probably, given excise and Thais love of Toyotas, maybe around Thb2 million:))

Much better looking than the truly ugly CH-R.  Very clean, flowing styling.  Too bad we don't get the RAV in Thailand.  My partner and I have a CR-V but might consider the Cross or the equally attractive Mazda CX 30.

Edit: Just saw the copy and paste (from a certain publication) in the post above !

 

The price places it well below the CRV, Fortuna and Pajero.... and near the CX-3 and HRV

No, but they don't need to do their best to sell in LOS.
