The 2022 Corolla Cross will arrive spread across 3 trims of L, LE and XLE. Built on the TNGA-C platform you’ll enjoy a higher level of sight unseen in any Corolla of previous, thanks to its crossover construction. This bold subcompact can’t be missed with a black grille, powerful LED lighting, and further black body accents that provide the perfect complement to its dynamic frame. Confidence is further instilled through 17-inch steel or 18-inch alloy wheels, on the L and XLE, respectively.
Inside sees an interior similar to its sedan and hatchback family members, with the availability of a moonroof, SofTex-trimmed seats (with heated ability standard for the front seats for us Canadian drivers). Given that the Corolla is now a crossover, take advantage of its cargo space through 60/40 split fold rear seats that come standard, an XLE model with centre armrest and two cupholders, along with an available power liftgate for improved loading and unloading convenience.
A lot of pep has been added to the Corolla Cross’s step with the 2.0L Dynamic Force engine, paired together with the Direct Shift CVT (which was borrowed from the sporty S trim sedan Corollas). You’ll see 169 horsepower produced out of this crossover, giving you a punchy acceleration that soon transitions to a smooth driving experience that stays efficient all the time. Available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the suspension is fully independent on the AWD, while the FWD sees a torsion beam system at the rear. For those AWD drivers, Dynamic Torque Control allows you to route 50% of power to the rear wheels when you need to, and disengages when it’s no longer needed. This keeps the crossover incredibly efficient, no matter the city or highway roads you’re travelling down. Last, but certainly not least, each Corolla Cross can get up to 1,500 lbs of towing capacity, so get ready to take your favourite toys and gear on your next camping trip.

Additional highlights include Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert as standard on the LE and XLE, with the XLE receiving as standard Front and Rear Parking Assist.
