It seems that the shift towards SUVs is evident in not just Malaysia, but other parts of the world too. The Toyota Corolla Cross has proven to be a runaway hit for the company. In Malaysia, all 750 units of the fully-imported (CBU Thailand) allocated for Malaysia were sold out, less than one week after it was launched.
