Toyota Corolla Cross

After a series of teasers and social media campaigns, UMW Toyota Motor Malaysia has finally launched the first ever Toyota Corolla Cross SUV.

Going against models like the Subaru XV, Mazda CX-30, Honda HR-V and also the Proton X50, the Toyota Corolla Cross is available in two trim variants with prices as mentioned below:

  • Toyota Corolla Cross 1.8G – RM124,000
  • Toyota Corolla Cross 1.8V – RM134,000

Dimensions & powertrain

Measuring 4,460 mm in length, 1,825 mm in width, and 1,620 mm in height, with a 2,640-long wheelbase, the Corolla Cross is built on the same TNGA platform as the Toyota Corolla Altis. In fact, it would not be wrong to say that the Corolla Cross is essentially an Altis on stilts with a slightly different rear suspension setup.
