With its 194 horsepower that allows it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.2 seconds, the Corolla Cross Hybrid is pleasant to drive while offering a combined fuel consumption rating estimated by the manufacturer at 6.4 L/100 km for all versions.
In addition to the crash protection provided by the TNGA-C platform, all 2023 Corolla Cross trims come standard with Toyota Safety Sense 3.0, Toyota’s suite of active safety systems, which includes enhancements made possible through to sensors with better detection capability. The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection is also capable of detecting motorcyclists under certain conditions. When turning or approaching an intersection, the system is designed to detect oncoming traffic, from the front or from the sides. It can also issue visual and audible alerts, and activate automatic braking in certain conditions. Improved lane recognition improves the performance of the Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Lane Keep Assist systems.
