Toyota has taken the covers off its all-new Corolla Cross which will be launched in Australia in the second half of 2022.
The small SUV version of the world's most popular passenger car joins the new Yaris Cross launched last year as Toyota continues to expand its SUV range.
The all-new model will be available in Australia with a choice of front-wheel drive (2WD) petrol and hybrid drivetrains and an AWD model that introduces the latest 2.0-litre hybrid powertrain for the first time in a Toyota vehicle. All models will also include a raft of improved Toyota Safety Sense features.
Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the all-new Corolla Cross will meet the demands of small SUV buyers as a practical, versatile and stylish small SUV.
"We know Australians love their SUVs and Toyota is continuing to meet that demand by offering an ever-growing range of models, all of which are introducing our fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain and advanced safety technology," Mr Hanley said.
"The all-new Corolla Cross delivers the sort of style, versatile space and dynamic driving characteristics that will appeal to young families and couples alike," he said.
Built on the TNGA-C platform, the all-new Corolla Cross will slot into the Toyota SUV range between the Yaris Cross and RAV4, alongside the C-HR.
Inside, the Corolla Cross receives the latest multimedia system with wireless Apple CarPlay1 and wired Android Auto2.
Further details will be announced closer to the Australian launch.
