However the Corolla Cross has 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.

Quick Corolla Cross Highlights

All-new Corolla Cross offers class-leading technology and connected services

  • Choice of two-wheel or all-wheel drive, petrol or hybrid powertrains, and three trim levels
  • Corolla Cross offers superb value with 2WD GX petrol priced from $33,0001

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.

What does the Corolla Cross look like?

In short it’s like a mini-me RAV 4.

That’s not a bad thing as the RAV 4 is pretty appealing.

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

What is it like inside

For a smaller SUV there is adequate room

Typically Toyota fit and finish

Reasonable room for someone my size front and back.

I particularly like the new central screen, it’s a vast improvement on the more pedestrian and bland Toyota offerings in some models.

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.

Toyota multimedia system.

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 Services5 functionality 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.
