Remember when we reported about the leaked photo of the supposed Toyota Corolla Cross? Well, it looks like we will soon be seeing it without any camouflage as the automaker appears to be gearing up for its launch tomorrow in Thailand.
While the automaker hasn't stated exactly that it will be the Corolla Cross, our friends over at Headlightmag managed to get some key details regarding the all-new crossover. Beginning with its exterior dimensions, the Corolla Cross will supposedly measure 4460mm long, 1825mm wide, and 1620mm tall. This puts the new crossover on par with its closest competitors like the MG ZS, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-30, and the all-new Nissan Kicks.
As mentioned before, the Corolla Cross will supposedly be available in four distinct variants (1.8 Sport, 1.8 Hybrid Smart, 1.8 Hybrid Premium, 1.8 Hybrid Premium Safety) and could come with two 1.8-liter engines. The first engine is a naturally-aspirated inline-four that puts out 140 PS along with 175 Nm of torque. It is then paired to a CVT and only comes in front-wheel-drive. Meanwhile, the other engine is a gasoline-hybrid which appears to have been derived from the Corolla Altis Hybrid. It has a total system output of 122 PS with 142 Nm of torque and is also mated to a CVT.
The Corolla Cross will also reportedly come with a wide array of standard features and amenities. These include dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable driver's seat, 360-degree around-view camera, electric sunroof, and an automatic tailgate. It will also be available with Toyota Safety Sense features such as lane departure alert with lane tracing assist, dynamic radar cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beam assist, and a pre-collision system.
As to what the Corolla Cross may look like, we have yet to see the car without any camouflage. The only clear image we have of the upcoming crossover is the one that we found last April. The crossover in question is draped in heavy camouflage, although we do see some Corolla Altis-like design cues on the tailgate and on the taillights.
Will the supposed Corolla Cross make its way here in the Philippines? Well according to an insider, Toyota Motor Philippines has plans for it to be offered locally. The only question now would is when will TMP actually launch it in the country. For now, all we can do is patiently wait and hope that we won't have to wait long for the Corolla Cross.
