Thinking of getting a Corolla Cross as it looks like a practical all round car. Any one got one, or want to share their thoughts?

 

Also considering a Subaru Forrester or CX30. The CX30 is probably the best to drive but least practical.I like the size and 4WD of the Forrester. But the Corolla cross seems to have decent space, plus it would be good to have a hybrid.

  • metisdead changed the title to Corrolla Cross

Maybe just me, while I was having my truck serviced, I went to the showroom to visit, to me it is nothing more than an enlarged Altas into a small SUV?  with a 1.8 motor I didn't noticed anything special except the price 1.2 million baht.

I drove a friend's and found it terribly underpowered for use on the single lane roads that I drive most often. Midrange acceleration is leisurely and makes overtaking dangerous. IMHO, of course. I'm sure it's fine for city use.

I recently got a Forester, and quite like it - roomy and comfortable in the front and back, good visibility through the large windows, and some nice safety features. To me, the Cross feels more cramped, but as you say, it would be great to have a hybrid, and the Forester doesn't have a hybrid option.

Go with the Sabaru, brother had one for 5 years, never an issue.

The Forester is more comparable to a CX-5 of CRV than to the Corolla Cross, and in that regards offers excellent value in Thailand.

For space, safety, and actual 4wd  capabilities, the Forester can not be beaten in Thailand. For a Hybrid small family car mainly used in the city, the Corolla Cross is a good choice. For singles/couples who don't need quite as much space, but value a touch of luxury inside and ever so slight sporty feel (the only one without CVT too), go with the Mazda CX-30.

 

It is worth noting that the claimed weight of the Hybrid Cross is only 60kg more than the non-hybrid variant, at 1,380kg.... which is also similar in weight to the CX-30. The 90kw combined hybrid engine is a lot less powerful than the Mazda's however, which explains the sluggishness when over-taking.

 The MU-X Onyx is is the outgoing model, based on the previous D-Max. There is a brand new MU-X appearing on the market right now.

They are very different vehicles. One is a modified diesel truck based on the D-Max, the other is a passenger car.

 

The Forester pricing details can be found here:

Check out the English language reviews on YouTube (they are from the Philippines). The fact that it's a hybrid and a Toyota plus better looking than alternatives have made up my mind. Apparently there is a 4 month delay due to battery supply that is stopping me from ordering one...

I can't remember the other model, but it is also an Hybrid?  The design is a bit wild with a slope back but the length is about the same kind of takes after the Juke in design. In terms of size and room I thought if one had to have an Hybrid this would be the choice I make when it comes to Toyota in comparison luxury and being solid when I closed the door sticker being the same 1.2 I would give the Cross a pass for sure but that me and I'm not confused about the choice.🤪

I have looked at the cross a few months ago. To change at that time my Toyota C-HR. But was not happy with what you get for the price!

Actually I think the cross is very similar to the C-HR, except the outside look different, which was the problem for some.. As the C-HR looked special.

 

I now moved away from Toyota...

Yes well aware of that which is why I was asking for a comparison between the Forester and the new mu-x, not between this year's and last year's mu-x

There is no Onyx with the new model. It was a limited edition version. The new version of the MU-X looks lovely, it is still however a truck (body on frame) and not a car.

I didn't even know of their existence when this OP was writ. However, yesterday I let a red-plated one ease out of a hotel driveway into traffic in front of me. Then I got stuck behind this brake-dabbing proud new owner, tootling along at 15 kph, braking for bugs, bumpy road paint and what have you. Underpowered did spring to mind but maybe that was just the driver's brain?
