New 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross Price and Release Date – The Toyota Corolla Cross 2022 appears to be ready to compete with mini-SUVs at the American cross-over sales battle. The Corolla Cross is positioned between the C-HR and RAV4 in the Toyota SUV lineup. There will be a variety of Toyota Corolla Cross variants, including hybrid and front-wheel-drive versions. Although it might not be the most exciting car coming in 2022 this is the one you are most likely to purchase.
Toyota Corolla Cross 2022 Specs
Although we haven’t had the chance to see inside the Corolla cross, its exterior dimensions are larger than the C-HR or Corolla Hatchback models. This should increase passenger and cargo space. The front of the Corolla Cross is dominated by the Toyota RAV4. This is part of the strategy as the Corolla Cross feels familiar by visually linking the smaller SUV to its larger brother, the Toyota RAV4. The 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross’s robust appearance is enhanced by its black plastic body cladding. The front fascia is tough with its canted and angry-looking headlamps. It also features the bumper that flares out to meet the wheel arches.
Photos show a dashboard covered in faux leather. The interior has ambient lighting and what appears to be a digital gauge display. Optional features include a sunroof, power-adjustable driver’s chair, automatic climate control, heated front seats, and heated rear seats.
Safety system and features
Toyota’s current trend of standardizing driver assistance features continues with the Corolla Cross. It will offer a suite that includes adaptive cruise control and automated emergency brakes on all trims. Although it isn’t the most modern version, the 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross current infotainment interface is quite simple to use. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio are all standard features. However, wireless smartphone charging, rear-seat USB charging port, and a JBL stereo system can be added as an optional extra.
All Corolla Cross models come standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine of 169 horsepower and continuously variable auto transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard but an all-wheel-drive option will be available. Although it doesn’t seem like the most exciting powertrain, it should provide adequate performance and decent fuel consumption.
