The new product debuted on the last day of last summer and in September immediately became a bestseller in Japan among the cars of the SUV segment.
The new Toyota Yaris Cross crossover won the title of best-seller of the Japanese car market in September in the SUV segment. The portal “New cars” reports that at the end of the first autumn month, the novelty sold 12 thousand copies. In the brand’s model range, the new crossover is located 1 step below the C-HR model.
The engine range of the car consists of two engines – the base is a 1.5-liter turbo engine with 120 HP. Much more interesting is the hybrid powerplant, which consists of an internal combustion engine with 91 HP and an electric motor with 80 HP.
The main advantage of this version is very low fuel consumption – it is 3.25 liters per 100 km of travel. Interesting was the all-wheel-drive version of the crossover with a multi-link suspension at the rear.
The all-wheel drive system was named E-Four, and its main feature is an electric motor on the rear axle.
For the basic configuration of the car, the brand’s dealers in Japan ask for 1,798,000 yen ($17,000), and the most affordable hybrid modification will cost 2,284,000 yen ($21,700).
