Toyota unveils the new Corolla Cross in Thailand, a new compact SUV adding further strength and functionality to the Corolla series.

13 Jul 2020 | International News : Thailand

Toyota has added the new Corolla Cross compact SUV to its Corolla series. The global premiere of the model was held in Thailand, where sales have commenced. The Corolla Cross will be launched in a growing number of other markets subsequently. 

Since its launch in Japan in 1966, the Corolla series has sold a cumulative total of 48 million units or more, in more than 150 countries and regions around the world - it is Toyota's best-selling car.

The Corolla Cross frame is based on the TNGA platform, realising comfort, utility, and peace of mind for customers
The Corolla has continued to evolve in line with the needs of the times and of the regions it is sold in. By adding a new model to the Corolla series to suit the growing demand of SUVs, the enhanced Corolla lineup enables customers to select the model that better suits their diverse lifestyles and life stages.

With 'Corolla Meets SUV' being the key phrase for the development of the Corolla Cross, the model was designed as a new type of SUV that combines dignified sturdiness in the exterior, and utility in a manner that exceeds customer expectations.

The Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform (GA-C) has enabled the Corolla Cross to achieve high-quality performance, a comfortable ride, and outstanding quietness. A new torsion-beam suspension with optimised suspension geometry and the use of large, soft bushings ensure that passengers in all seats enjoy a comfortable ride. An elevated driving position contributes to a wide field of view, and helps minimise blind spots. A class-leading minimum turning radius of 5.2m results in responsive handling. Both combine to give the Corolla Cross superb manoeuvrability.

The Corolla Cross provides a comfortable interior space with outstanding views and ample head clearance
The Corolla Cross features a powerful, sleek, and sophisticated appearance. A relaxed side view hints at a spacious interior and underlines the car's status, as the imposing and powerful front fender moulds underscore the car's sense of energy. The contrast between the rear fenders and the cabin results in an impressive rearview

The Corolla Cross provides a spacious cabin, easy entry into and exit from the car with large spacious door openings, class-leading luggage space of 487 litres when carrying a puncture repair kit, and 440 litres when carrying a temporary spare tyre.

Safety equipment inherited from the Corolla series provides safety and customer peace of mind, as Toyota Safety Sense will be installed as a standard feature for the Hybrid High grade model introduced in Thailand. Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are equipped to the High and Mid grades in Hybrid models for Thailand. Lightening the body has enabled even the gasoline-powered grades to achieve superb fuel efficiency. As a result, both the gasoline-powered and hybrid models boast class-leading efficiency, with 23.2km/L for the hybrid models and 15.4km/L for gasoline-powered models under the New European Driving Cycle.
