Toyota has introduced a new version of the Corolla Cross crossover called GR Sport. This modification of the model, developed by the specialists of the sports division of Gazoo Racing, appeared in Taiwan.
Externally, the new crossover differs from the standard car with a modified front bumper and a radiator grille framed in black chrome. In addition, enlarged air intakes with fog lamps integrated into them appeared at the front. In the lower part of the body, plastic protective plates with an “aluminum” color were installed.
Inside there is a 9-inch touchscreen display of the multimedia complex with special graphics, as well as sports seats with “GR” emblems on the headrests.
In terms of technical changes, Gazoo Racing engineers redesigned the suspension with sport springs and shock absorbers to improve handling. In addition, the chassis has been reinforced.
The engine lineup remains the same. The crossover is available with a 1.8-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine with 140 horsepower, as well as with a 122-horsepower hybrid unit based on a unit of the same volume. In both cases, a variator is used as a transmission.
Prices for the new Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport start at T $ 875,000.
