Toyota Singapore has launched the Corolla Cross Hybrid and the GR 86 here at the Singapore Motor Show.

The Toyota Corolla Cross comes to Singapore equipped with the firm's fifth generation hybrid system, paired to an eCVT transmission. This drivetrain will offer a total of 196bhp courtesy of a 2.0-litre engine.

The cabin of the Toyota Corolla Cross combines a 12.3-inch digital driver's cluster with an 8.0-inch multimedia system
Drive reasonably and you can expect fuel economy to come close to the claimed 18.9km/L. But if you're in a hurry, the Toyota Corolla Cross will also complete the century sprint in 7.7 seconds.

Further back, there's plenty that will please those looking for practicality. A 12.3-inch digital driver's cluster will offer all the necessary driving information, while an 8.0-inch multimedia system supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Toyota further states that the seats in the Corolla Cross have been designed with a curved backing, which offers passengers at the second row more legroom. The Toyota Corolla Cross also offers a total of 425-litre of boot space.

A new 2.4-litre engine in the GR 86 will offer 228bhp and 250Nm of torque
The car also comes to Singapore equipped with what is said to be the firm's latest Safety Sense suite of safety features that includes Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, as well as Lane Tracing Assist and Lane Departure Alert amongst others.

But if you're in the market for something a little more exciting, there's now also the Toyota GR 86 to consider.

The sports coupe comes with a 2.4-litre boxer engine, offering a claimed 228bhp and 250Nm of torque. The Toyota GR 86 is offfered in Singapore with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Opt for the former and the car will be able to accelerate to 100km/h in just 6.3 seconds.

And once the curves beckon, sport-tuned independent MacPherson front struts and a double-wishbone style, multi-link rear suspension at the rear, alongside a Torsen limited-slip rear differential will prove handy.

Singapore-bound examples of the GR 86 are set to get a 7.0-inch driver's multi-info display alongside a 7.0-inch touchscreen audio head unit in the cabin, as well as a six-speaker audio system.

Car Model Price as of press time (inclusive of COE)
Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid 2.0 Premium (A) $178,488
Toyota GR86 2.4 (A) $146,888 (w/o COE)
Toyota GR86 2.4 (M) $138,888 (w/o COE)
