Taking on the Honda WR-V and Nissan Kicks, the Yaris Cross remains hybrid-only β€“ combining a 91 PS/121 Nm 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated 2NR-VEX four-cylinder engine with a 80 PS/121 Nm electric motor. Rated fuel economy is a pretty sweet 26.3 km/litre, or 3.8 litres/100 km.

With all being front-wheel drive, the trio also share the same suspension/braking components: disc brakes all around, a torsion beam rear suspension setup, and a 210 mm ground clearance. Turning radius is pretty tight too at 5.2 metres, one of the merits of the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) platform.
