The first images with the camouflaged SUV of Toyota was published in April, and then the lens hit only feed of new items. Now, there are a couple of fresh pictures: one of them depicted the “face” of the car, albeit in camouflage, and the second again back, but without the masking films.
According to preliminary data, the model is “truck” GA-C, developed as part of the architecture TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) – this platform is based and Corolla. By the way, the SUV tipped the name Corolla Cross. Recall that this phrase Toyota registered a couple of years ago, it was believed that it would be used for cross-version hatchback or wagon Corolla. But for the sake of sales reports the company may assign this “name” and a brand new SUV, the proof is presented in the spring the little Yaris Cross crossover, which has the original body, being a relative of the Yaris hatch (both “piatigorski” built on the platform of GA-B).
Because of the camouflage it is difficult to assess the design of the front end, it is clear only that the cross has received massive grille and led strip daytime running lights. But in profile and from behind the SUV looks like the current RAV4 (powered by GA-K): the novelty also has “zakadychnye” the wheel arches with black plastic covers, similar lights and rear door. Curiously, the rear bumper with vertical reflectors made in the style of Toyota Wildlander is a twin Rafiq, he is represented only in China.
However, the Thai blog Car News Update (first footage Corolla Cross was made in Thailand) says that he managed to get specifications of the upcoming SUV. According to the blog, the length of the crossover is equal to 4460 mm, width – 1825 mm, height – 1615 mm. the wheelbase has not yet been disclosed (in related “just” a Corolla, this figure is equal to 2700 mm). For comparison, the dimensions of our Toyota RAV4: 4600/1855/1685 mm wheelbase – 2690 mm. Dimensions Toyota C-HR: 4360/1795/1565 mm, wheelbase 2640 mm.
According to preliminary data, in Asia equipment from the SUV Corolla Cross is the same as “just” Corolla. We are talking about “atmosferica” 1.8 and hybrid power installation on the basis of the same motor. New cross and South America, where the range needs to enter two-liter engine. Most likely, the SUV will be all-wheel drive. Well, the equipment list should include a multimedia system with 9-inch screen, climate control, adaptive cruise control and cameras of the circular review.
Asian specialized media believe that the official premiere of the new crossover will take place this fall. Corolla Cross, obviously, will be cheaper than the RAV4. But you will get such a cross to Europe – information yet.
