Exterior & Interior Design
The 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid breaks the mold of uninspiring crossover SUVs with its modern styling and impeccable attention to detail. Highlighted by its distinctive black grille and LED headlamps, followed by flared fender arches and sweeping body lines, as well as its integrated rear spoiler and unique lighting fixtures, the 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid is a stand out vehicle in every sense of the word.
Small and nimble on the outside and surprisingly spacious on the inside, the Corolla Cross Hybrid features seating for up to five and a rear cargo compartment that can accommodate up to 609 L or 21.5 cu-ft of gear. The vehicle’s interior is also exceptionally versatile, with its 60/40 split-folding rear seats that allows owners to maximize cargo or people carrying space or both!
To make loading and unloading a breeze, Toyota engineers designed the Corolla Cross hybrid with wide rear doors, ample trunk space, and a low cargo-loading height. Whether it’s work or play, the Corolla Cross Hybrid can take you, your friends and all of your things, thanks to its versatile & flexible design.
Comfort & Convenience
8-inch Toyota Multimedia Touchscreen Display
All 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid models come equipped with Toyota’s latest 8-inch touchscreen display that features wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto capabilities. Both hybrid models of the Corolla Cross also feature a 4.2-inch full-colour multi-information driver display that houses vital driving information right in your field of view. Toyota’s suite of connected driving technologies such as Drive Connect, Safety Connect, Service Connect and Remote Connect are also compatible with this multimedia system, with the XSE AWD receiving a complimentary three-year trial period while the SE AWD requires a subscription to activate these services.
JBL Premium Audio System
Available exclusively in the top-of-the-line 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid XSE AWD, owners can equip a JBL Premium Audio System to replace the standard 6-speaker audio system in other Corolla Cross models. This premium audio system delivers crisp and clear sound through nine strategically placed speakers throughout the vehicle’s cabin.
Standard All-Wheel Drive
Both 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid models come equipped exclusively with Toyota’s intelligent all-wheel drive system as standard. Enjoy ample traction on the road, no matter how harsh the conditions may be, thanks to the Corolla Cross Hybrid’s ability to send up to 40% of the vehicle’s power to the rear wheels, if necessary. The vehicle also features a Macpherson front strut suspension, as well as a double wishbone rear suspension set up to aid in overall ride comfort.
Self-Charging Hybrid Powertrain
Corolla Cross Hybrid Features Toyota’s 5th generation hybrid system with its 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, paired with motor-generators for increased performance and stellar fuel economy. Generating 196 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque, the Corolla Cross Hybrid delivers impressive fuel economy metrics of as low as 4.3L/100km! The vehicle also never needs to be plugged in. The hybrid battery recharges on the go, using innovations like regenerative braking to capture and transform energy into electricity and store it in the battery.
The 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid is available in two well-equipped trim levels, the entry-level SE AWD and the sporty XSE AWD. Both models come exclusively with Toyota’s intelligent all-wheel drive system, perfect for the winter weather conditions and unpaved roads around Northern Ontario. Standard features on both models include the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 suite of safety technologies, an advanced blind spot monitoring system with rear cross traffic alert, an 8-inch Toyota multimedia touchscreen display, as well as heated front seats and steering wheel.
