Toyota Motor Corporation has added the new Corolla Cross compact SUV to its Corolla series. The global premiere of the model was held in Thailand today where sales have now commenced. The Corolla Cross will be launched in a growing number of other markets, going forward.
“Corolla Meets SUV” being the key phrase for the development of the Corolla Cross, the model is designed as a new type of SUV that combines dignified sturdiness in the exterior, and utility in a manner that exceeds customer expectations.
The TNGA platform (GA-C) has enabled the Corolla Cross to achieve high-quality performance, a comfortable ride, and outstanding quietness. In addition to its exceptional comfort, the Corolla Cross provides a spacious cabin, easy entry into and exit from the car, class-leading luggage space suitable for all scenarios, and safety equipment inherited from the Corolla series. In this way, the new model realizes comfort, utility, and peace of mind for customers.
The Corolla Cross was launched 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.
