Toyota to Launch All-New Corolla Cross in Japan
The Corolla series continues to evolve and embrace new challenges in line with the needs of the times; Toyota launches the first-ever Corolla SUV, which boasts the functionality and performance required in this present day and age.
Toyota City, Japan, September 14, 2021―Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) has announced that it will launch the all-new Corolla Cross today, on September 14, 2021. Since the launch of the first-generation in 1966, the Corolla series has continued to evolve and embrace new challenges based on the "plus alpha" concept, via which it seeks to exceed both the expectations of customers around the world and the needs of the times. Today, the Corolla series is sold in more than 150 countries and regions around the world, and in July 2021 it achieved some cumulative sales of 50 million units.
Comfort that takes full advantage of its high body style
The front seats provide a high viewpoint expected of an SUV, while slender front pillars and an uncluttered instrument panel result in a cockpit with a full field of view and easily accessible controls; the rear seats are conveniently accessed through large rear side doors and, since they can be reclined, they promise superb comfort and convenience. The Panorama Roof*4 helps realize an outstanding sense of spaciousness: its large glass surface provides views of the sky to passengers in every seat, expanding their scope of vision, while the motorized retractable shade allows control over the amount of sunlight entering the vehicle.
Convenient luggage space with a variety of layouts
The all-new Corolla Cross offers some of the best luggage capacity in its class, with 487 liters*5 available even when seating five. Folding the rear seats further expands the luggage area, providing sufficient space even for carrying road bicycles. The highly functional Luggage Active Box*7 has been specially designed for the Corolla Cross; it allows users to store luggage out of sight, while its lid can be shut flat to open up more luggage space.
Commanding, powerful exterior
The all-new Corolla Cross has been designed to be "urban and active," with the dynamism and sophistication of an SUV. The vehicle is available in a total of eight colors that accentuate its urban and sophisticated design.
