Available in front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD), the compact SUV maximizes the inherent potential of the high-strength TNGA-C platform and a 169-horsepower 2.0-liter Dynamic Force Engine. This enables the Corolla Cross to achieve high-quality performance, a comfortable ride and outstanding spaciousness. What's more, the surprising cargo capacity gives it the versatility to accommodate life's adventures.
Well Appointed, Yet Powerful
Offered in three grades – L, LE and XLE – the versatile design of the Corolla Cross is spacious, modern, powerful and high quality. From an engineering perspective, it offers an approachable exterior as well as a higher line-of-sight thanks to the revised TNGA-C platform. Key design cues include a distinctive black grille flanked by LED lighting with black body accents – giving the entry SUV a confident appearance. And from the rear, the stylish design elements continue, with an integrated rear spoiler and LED lighting. Wheel options range from 17-inch steel on L to 18-inch alloy on XLE.
For exterior color options, the 2022 Corolla Cross is offered in:
- Wind Chill Pearl ($425 extra-color cost)
- Sonic Silver
- Jet Black
- Barcelona Red Metallic
- Blue Crush Metallic
Inside, Corolla Cross' spacious interior offers many of the same desirable features as its sedan and hatchback siblings. The all-new model can be outfitted with a power moonroof, as well as either single- or dual-zone automatic climate control, with all grades featuring standard heating and air conditioning vents for rear seat passengers.
For interior color options, the 2022 Corolla Cross is offered in:
L: Fabric-trimmed seats in Light Gray
LE: Fabric-trimmed seats in Light Gray or Black
XLE: SofTex®-trimmed seats in Macadamia/Mocha or Black
A 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar and heated front seats, standard on XLE, put the driver in a comfortable and commanding position.
In back, storage space can be maxed out thanks to the 60/40-split folding rear seats that come standard on all grades, while XLE models also include a center armrest with two additional cupholders. To make access to the roomy cargo area even more convenient, the Corolla Cross has an available power liftgate with height adjustability.
Available accessories, including a roof rack with crossbars, an activity mount for carrying items such as bicycles, a tow hitch and all-weather floormats keep you equipped for any adventure.
Small But Mighty
The Corolla Cross is equipped with the mighty Dynamic Force four cylinder, 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve with Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) engine. That means a punchy 169 horsepower engine paired with CVT with a physical first gear provides a truly engaging driving experience, all while delivering exceptional efficiency.
Corolla Cross' suspension also plays a role here, as it's fully independent for all-wheel-drive models, while front-wheel-drive vehicles feature a brand-new torsion beam system in the rear.
Additionally, every Corolla Cross is capable of towing up to 1,500 lbs. (enough to pull a trailer with a personal watercraft for a day of fun on the lake).
For those who choose AWD, Toyota's clever Dynamic Torque Control system directs up to 50% of power to the rear wheels when it's needed – and disengages completely when it's not. This feature helps Corolla Cross maintain great fuel economy – another strong suit for this powertrain – with an estimated 32 combined MPG for the FWD model and an estimated 30 combined MPG for the AWD model.
Connectivity for the Long Drive
However, passengers choose to listen to music or connect with their worlds, the 2022 Corolla Cross is ready with the latest multimedia systems. A 7-inch multimedia touchscreen comes on the L grade, while LE and XLE feature an 8-inch touchscreen.
The vast range of in-car entertainment and connected functionalities, including standard compatibility for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, will be sure to keep passengers engaged. Mobile devices will stay topped off through wireless charging (standard on LE and XLE), or through the conveniently located USB media port. LE and XLE grades offer two USB charging ports for rear seat passengers, welcoming all devices along for the drive!
The available Audio Plus multimedia with Remote Connect and a nine-speaker JBL® sound system is the perfect complement to a road trip playlist. And when it's time to turn on the tunes, Amazon Alexa connectivity keeps Amazon's digital assistant just a question away. Other connected features include a standard three-month SiriusXM Platinum subscription to more than 300 channels accessible throughout the country.
XLE owners can get key info at a glance, courtesy of an available 7-inch Multi-Information Display with various vehicle and systems info to choose from.
