Pros&Cons

Pros

  • TNGA platform- Based on Toyota’s highly rated TNGA platform that also underpins the Toyota CH-R and the Toyota Corolla Altis, the ride is cossetting and composed despite the torsion beam setup at the rear,

  • Maneuverability- All round visibility is exceptional thanks to the new lower chassis and slimmer pillars. Best-in-class turning radius of 5.2 m makes it highly maneuverable especially in urban area.

  • Safety Feature- It scored the maximum 5 Star in the ASEAN NCAP crash safety rating. The available Toyota Safety Sense system on the 1.8 V greatly enhances safety.

Cons

  • Performance- The 1.8 litre naturally aspirated engine feels outdated and could certainly use some extra grunt.

  • CVT Transmission- The droning sound from the CVT transmission penetrates the cabin especially at high engine RPM.

  • Interior Quality- Material used in the cabin especially the hard plastic on the dashboard leaves much to be desired. The foot-operated parking brake is so 1990s.

    Toyota Corolla Cross Overview

    The 2021 Toyota Corolla Cross is the latest compact crossover SUV to join UMW Toyota Motor’s vehicle line up in Malaysia. Making its Malaysian debut in March 2021, it is based on Toyota’s highly rated TNGA-C platform and presents a larger and more sensible alternative to the funky Toyota CH-R.


    Initially available only in CBU form fully imported from the land of the smile above, locally assembled model will be made available on the second half of 2021, making it the first TNGA-based Toyota to be assembled in Malaysia. Two trim levels on offer are the base 1.8 G and the top of the range 1.8.V with all the bells and whistle, featuring Toyota’s Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), Toyota Safety Sense.

    Price starts from RM 124,000 for the base 1.8 G and RM 129,266 for the 1.8 V (with sales tax exemption). It goes head-to-head with the Mazda CX-30, Subaru XV and the hugely popular Honda HR-V that is punching above its weight class.

  • Exterior

    Toyota Corolla Cross Exterior

    Toyota Corolla Cross, as the name suggests, is a C-segment crossover, designed specifically for the ASEAN demographic. Based on the same TNGA-C platform that also underpins the Toyota CH-R, it occupies a larger footprint despite sharing the same wheelbase, with emphasis put towards interior space and practicality.

    Unlike the Toyota CH-R, it is sporting a more ‘grown-up’ look, featuring a large droopy front grille finished in gloss black and flanked by a pair of menacing slim headlights. Utilitarian design approach is also applied here evident by the black plastic cladding on the bumpers and wheel arches, albeit with more finesse here compared to the more ruggedly styled Toyota RAV 4.


    In favor of practicality, it inevitably loses some of its funky edge. But that is not to say that the Cross is all work and no play. The slopping roofline is less dramatic here but the chrome trims that runs along the window frame towards the D-pillars adds a premium touch to the side profile.

    Front and back skid plates are finished in body colour paint and same goes to the integrated rear spoiler. The rear design is suitably understated with a hint of RAV 4’s polygonal theme with a slightly more rounded edge. The Toyota Corolla Cross is positioned between the Toyota CH-R and the Toyota RAV 4 within Toyota’s crossover SUV lineup.  

    Despite officially classified as a C-Segment SUV, it rivals against the similarly priced B-Segment’s Honda HR-V. In terms of sheer size, it dwarfs in comparison to a proper C-Segment SUV like the Honda CR-V, shorter by a good 136 mm.

  • Interior

    Toyota Corolla Cross Interior

    Thanks to Toyota’s TNGA platform, the sitting position is relatively low compared to the conventional SUV like the Honda CR-V. Outward visibility is excellent thanks to the low windscreen scuttle and the narrow A-pillars.

    The interior layout is almost a carbon copy of the Toyota Corolla Altis with few subtle differences like the instrument panel. Driver gets the same three-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel but with analog instrument cluster featuring a smaller 4.2-inch colour multi-info display on the right.


    A free standing 9-inch infotainment touch screen display sits above the dashboard in your direct line of sight. Unlike the Toyota RAV 4’s more upmarket interior, cost cutting measure is apparent in the cabin with the extensive use of hard plastics on the dashboard, centre console as well as the door panels.

    Black leather seat upholstery with perforation comes as standard and the rear bench feature a 60:40 split with 6 degrees recline angle. Boot space available is 440 L, just a hair bigger than the Honda HR-V’s 437 L.

    Toyota Corolla Cross Features

    Both models are virtually identical on the outside. The only difference between the two models are basically the lights and the wheels. The base 1.8 G comes equipped with automatic halogen headlight, halogen DRL, and 17-inch alloy wheels while the 1.8 V variant comes equipped with LEDs headlights and DRL with 18-inch alloy wheels.


    Standard features on the inside include a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, 8-way power adjustable driver seat, foot-operated parking brake, automatic single zone climate control, rear air vents, powered tailgate with kick sensor, front Digital Video Recorder (DVR) and a 3D Panoramic View Monitor (PVM).

    The 1.8 V model is equipped with a more comprehensive Toyota Safety Sense system that includes Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) and Lane Tracing Assist.

    while the 1.8 G makes do with Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and a basic cruise control system. Standard safety feature includes 7 airbags, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TC) and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) among other things. 

  • Powertrain

    Toyota Corolla Cross Powertrain 


    Power comes courtesy of Toyota’s 2ZR-FE 1.8-litre naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine with dual VVT-I, developing 139 PS at 6,400 RPM and 172 Nm of torque from 4,000 RPM. Top speed is 185 km/h. Power is sent to the front wheels via Aisin’s 7-speed CVT with Sequntial Shiftmatic. Toyota claims that the new incorporated ‘cooperative control’ works together with the electronically controlled throttle for improved drivability, quietness and fuel economy.



  • Ride Comfort

    Toyota Corolla Cross Ride Comfort

    Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) with lighter body construction and lower centre of gravity promises greater stability and superior handling quality without compromising ride comfort. 


    Unlike the more dynamically inclined Toyota C-HR, the Toyota Corolla Cross employs a more comfort-oriented torsion beam setup at the rear as opposed to the more sophisticated double wishbone suspension. 

    Paired with the MacPherson Strut up front, the overall result is a comfortable car that is composed on the highway and hold itself reasonably well in the corners with some noticeable body roll.


     

  • Conclusion

    It remains to be seen whether the Toyota Corolla cross can challenge the Honda HR-V who has been reigning supreme in the popular compact crossover segment. Both variants are competitively priced and comes equipped with generous amount of equipment that makes the Honda feels like a ‘tin kosong’. It is highly versatile, comfortable to ride in and looks the part too, it pretty much ticks all the right boxes for a practical compact crossover SUV.
