Corolla Cross is built on the modular TNGA-C platform. The length, width and height of the new items are 4460, 1825 and 1620 mm, respectively, the wheelbase is the same as that of the Corolla and C-HR – 2640 mm.
The engine range consists of atmospheric “fours” 1.8 and 2.0, their power, depending on the specifications – 140 and 177 hp. There is also a 122 hp hybrid modification.
Earlier in May, the American media published a photo of camouflaged Corolla Cross vehicles driving along the roads of the United States. This is another reason why this particular model is going to be presented by Toyota.
