2023 Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid

When the Toyota Corolla Cross arrived in the latter half of 2021, many people were delighted about the debut of another Toyota-made crossover. What made the Corolla Cross such a commodity was that it capitalized on the success of the long-beloved Corolla sedan by making it in subcompact crossover form. After a year of well-earned praise, Toyota was left with a simple yet at the same time remarkably difficult question: how could the Corolla Cross be improved? It already had the style, the cutting-edge features, and the practicality, but what it lacked was the availability of a hybrid powertrain.

Crossover Gone Hybrid

It's no secret that hybrids have boomed in popularity, and that's why Toyota decided to offer the 2023 Corolla Cross with a gas-electric system. It's currently being manufactured on American soil at the brand-new Mazda Toyota Manufacturing plant in Huntsville, Alabama, and is certain to increase the model's already strong appeal when it's released later this year.

Next-Level Hybrid Performance

The all-wheel drive Corolla Cross Hybrid will be sold in the gas-burning model’s LE and XLE trim levels, along with new S, SE, and XSE grades. All will use the new Fifth Generation Toyota Hybrid System, which produces 194 horsepower and returns a manufacturer-estimated 37 mpg in combined city and highway fuel economy. The Corolla Cross Hybrid will also sit atop the revised TNGA-C platform, which in addition to providing commendable interior space will optimize its performance (especially when combined with the available sport-tuned suspension) and the driver’s view of the road.

Eye-Catching Exterior

The aesthetic quality of the ’23 Corolla Cross Hybrid is impressive, to say the least. It puts forth a sporty presence with its sharp proportions and grounded stance. What’s more, buyers can choose a striking two-tone color scheme to make it stand out even further. Certain trims will be equipped with a range of prominent features, like LED headlights and fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, and rear privacy glass.

Contemporary Interior

The Corolla Cross Hybrid’s cavernous cabin will give occupants the same premium experience afforded by the traditional model. Some of its most notable amenities will include a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, SofTex-trimmed seating, a wireless phone charger, and heated front seats. One of the Corolla Cross Hybrid’s most impressive attributes will be the new Toyota Multimedia System, with an array of connectivity and convenience features like wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice recognition, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. With the available Drive Connect service plan, you’ll have access to enhanced Intelligent Assistance voice recognition, Cloud Navigation, and Destination Assist, which provides access to 24-hour live agents who can help you get to where you’re going.

Advanced Safety Technology

On top of the security provided by the robust TNGA-C platform, every Corolla Cross Hybrid trim will come with Toyota Safety Sense 3.0. This suite of advanced safety tech bundles a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, dynamic radar cruise control, automatic high beams, and a rear seat reminder. Other safety aids to be found on all Corolla Cross Hybrids will consist of blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and hill start assist.
