Toyota Corolla Cross Out of Stock?

Toyota Corolla Cross

UMW Toyota Motor today announced that the locally assembled all-new Toyota Corolla Cross will be available for delivery towards the fourth quarter of the year. The company also disclosed that the model has been receiving overwhelming response from customers since its launch.

Including the Corolla Cross, UMW Toyota Motor sold more than 17,000 Toyota and Lexus vehicles in the first quarter of 2021 with a market share of approximately 12.1%, which is an increase of 62% year-on-year compared to the sales volume for the same period in 2020.

Hilux is still king

2020 Toyota Hilux

The best-selling models were the Toyota Vios and the Toyota Hilux, accounting for approximately 56% of the pick-up truck market for the first quarter. The updated versions of the Toyota Innova and Toyota Fortuner were also introduced early in the year with fresh new styling and extra value-added features.

The Toyota Yaris has been consistently No. 1 in the Non-National hatchback segment with Q1 estimated market share of 73%. The Vios and Vios GRS has also achieved positive response with approximately 5600 numbers sold since their launch.

Toyota GR Yaris

toyota gr yaris

As for the GR Yaris, most of the units allocated for the Malaysian market (out of 25,000 units for worldwide sales) were booked within a month of launch. The GR Yaris is one of three models in Toyota’s high-performance GR brand which are available in Malaysia.

The other models are the GR Supra and Vios GR-Sport. These models are exclusively sold through dealerships with the GR Garage that is dedicated to the brand.

Commenting on the achievement, President, Ravindran K said, “During the first quarter of 2020, the market was already declining due to the pandemic. This year, it’s a different story; with the situation easing as well as the support by the government through the PENJANA program that exempts sales tax partially or fully until June 30 this year, new vehicle sales have been consistently high. In fact, for Toyota, our momentum started in December when we launched the Toyota GR Yaris and Vios GR-Sport which excited the market and set a positive note to enter 2021,” he added.

Hari Raya ‘Countless Rewards’ promotion

Separately, with the Hari Raya festive season coming up during the second quarter, UMWT will be running the ‘Countless Rewards’ promotions for customers to drive Toyota for Raya and catch it before the SST exemption period ends. Savings for customers also include exemption on sales tax that is applicable to CBU models so customers should not miss this opportunity for big savings.

The EZ Beli financing scheme offers customers low instalments (depending on the model). Additionally, savings are available with Toyota Service Savers. This provides Toyota customers with peace-of-mind vehicle ownership with lowered maintenance cost of their Toyota vehicles.

Interior

Inside, the Fortuner 2.8 VRZ has a trim with a new design and colour, while the seat upholstery also has a new design.  

The new instrument panel features a revised Multi Information Display (MID) opening animation. Ambient illumination is provided to add a touch of class at night, while the key cover has been redesigned.

A balance shaft reduces vibrations and lowers noise levels while high efficiency is achieved with the electronically-controlled common rail injection system that can deliver fuel at a maximum pressure of up to 250 MPa.

The Fortuner also comes with Variable Flow Control (VFC) Power Steering, which helps to improve fuel economy by reducing the power steering pump consumption torque. Toyota’s engineers have enhanced the steering feeling to achieve natural handling that matches the speed.

For the Fortuner 2.8 VRZ, there is also a SPORT mode which enhances the power steering for responsiveness.

The part-time 4×4 drivetrain provides for maximum capability on all surfaces, from smooth highway to muddy jungle tracks. With the shift on-the-fly capability, the driver does not have to stop the vehicle to engage 4×4, which can be selected by simply turning a rotary knob.

TSS, though available in many Toyota models today, has different elements and for the latest Fortuner, it comes with Pre collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) and Yaw Assist Function.

Unlike the TSS in passenger vehicles, the system in the Fortuner (as well as Hilux) has a Yaw Assist Function.

The systems are also calibrated taking into account the usage conditions.

The other variants are the new Hilux 2.4 V AT Double Cab, Hilux 2.4 E AT Double Cab, Hilux 2.4 G MT Double Cab, and Hilux 2.4 MT Single Cab.

Customers would be able to order their new Hilux in one of seven exterior colour choices: Bronze Mica Metallic (new colour), Crimson Spark Red Metallic, Attitude Black Mica, Phantom Brown Metallic, Medium Silver Metallic, Silver Metallic and Super White II. The Hilux Single Cab is available only in a Solid White colour.

The new Hilux takes on a bolder appearance with a redesigned front grille and stronger styling elements.

Inside, a more premium image is evident with the new trim. For the flagship Hilux Rogue, the premium interior ambience is elevated with the use of clear blue door trim illumination.

The 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine of the Hilux Rogue has received technical improvements which raise both power output and torque. Maximum power output is now 204 ps at 3,400 rpm while maximum torque is 500 Nm between 1,600 and 2,800 rpm. In spite of the higher output, fuel consumption has actually been lowered by 4% to an average of 10.9 kms per litre.

 The 2.4-litre engine, which also has a Variable Nozzle Turbocharger (VNT) and an intercooler as well as a common-rail system, has received refinements that improve cooling and fuel economy. Thanks to increased pressure in the common-rail system, fuel efficiency has been improved by 5%.

In addition, this refined and improved engine for the new Hilux allows longer service interval from 5,000 kms/3 months to 10,000kms/6 months which will help to reduce maintenance costs.

Two driving modes can be selected if the driver wants to prioritize fuel economy or have strong acceleration. Both modes can be selected while on the move using a rotary switch.

The power-assisted rack and pinion steering system for the new Hilux (except for the Single Cab variant) now has a Variable Flow Control (VFC) system with reduced demand on the power steering pump, benefitting fuel economy.

For better grip and stability in difficult off-road conditions, there is Auto Limited Slip Differential (Auto LSD) which uses the Traction Control System (TRC) to control braking and engine output when one of the rear wheels start to spin. The Auto LSD is faster compared to the mechanical 4×4 system.

Although it has tough workhorse capabilities, the Hilux is also comfortable for daily motoring. The ride comfort has been noticeably improved through various measures, including optimization of cabin mounts to reduced shaking, roughness and noise transmission into the cabin.

In line with Toyota’s aim of making motoring safer and reducing accidents, Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) is provided for the Hilux Rogue. The TSS consists of three systems that assist drivers: Pre-Collision System (PCS), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), with Steering & Brake Assist.

Other driver-assist systems (depending on variant) include Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Downhill Assist Control, Hill Start Assist Control, Trailer Sway Control, Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control, Brake Assist and, of course, ABS with Brakeforce Distribution.

Inside the vehicle, there are up to 7 SRS airbags to help reduce injuries during an accident. The Seat Belt Reminder now has sensors on front and rear seatbelts and ISOFIX points are provided at the rear for easy and secure installation of compatible child seats.

Every Hilux variant comes with a customized security system consisting of an engine immobilizer, alarm and cabin intrusion sensor. Additionally, a Vehicle Telematics System (VTS) is installed as standard in the Hilux Rogue and 2.4 V (option for the other variants) and this enables real-time tracking of the vehicle using GPS signals.
