VIDEO: Toyota’s new ‘high performance’ Corolla Cross Hybrid

Toyota has taken the wraps off its next Corolla Cross Hybrid, which “adds a healthy helping of performance and efficiency to an already incredible package”.

According to the motor manufacturer, its first-ever Corolla SUV boasts increased power and fuel economy, along with newly added features.

Available exclusively with all-wheel drive (AWD), the Corolla Cross Hybrid maximises the “inherent” potential of the high-strength TNGA-C platform.

This, it says, enables the all-new model to achieve “high-quality” performance, a “comfortable” ride and “outstanding” spaciousness.

Moreover, it says, the “surprising” cargo capacity gives it the “versatility to accommodate life’s adventures”.

  • Exclusive All-Wheel Drive System with 194 horsepower, an 8.0 second 0-60 time and manufacturer-estimated 37 combined MPG for all grades;
  • New Toyota Multimedia System, Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and added USB-C charge ports;
  • Connected Service Drive Connect: Drivers and passengers have access to Intelligent Assistant, Cloud Navigation and Destination Assist;
  • AT&T hotspot: Wi-Fi Connect subscription offering 4G connectivity for up to five devices. HD Radio®, USB data and a SiriusXM® Platinum Plan 3-month trial subscription. Also new integrated streaming feature;

  • The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection can detect motorcyclists in certain conditions;
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Lane Tracing Assist;
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist is designed to notify the driver via audible and visual alerts and a slight steering force if it senses the vehicle is leaving the lane without engaging a turn signal. When DRCC is set and engaged, Lane Tracing Assist uses visible lane markers or a preceding vehicle to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane.
  • Automatic High Beams;
  • Road Sign Assist: Recognise certain road sign information using a forward-facing camera and display them on the multi-information display (MID);
  • Toyota’s Rear Seat Reminder: Can note whether a rear door was opened within 10 minutes of the vehicle being turned on or at any time after the vehicle has been turned on;
  • Blind Spot Monitor (BSM): Helps detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) also comes standard;
  • ToyotaCare: A plan covering normal factory-scheduled maintenance for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first, and two years of Roadside Assistance, unlimited mileage;
  • 6-month/36,000-mile basic new-vehicle warranty;
  • Additional 60-month warranties cover the powertrain for 60,000 miles and against perforation from corrosion for 60 months with no mileage limitation.
  • Hybrid-related components that require repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first from the original date of first use when sold as new;
  • The hybrid battery is covered for 10 years/150,000 miles, whichever comes first, and is transferable across ownership.

It comes in three new grades: S, SE and XSE, as well as the familiar LE and XLE grades.
