As with Thailand, two engine variants are offered in Vietnam. A 2ZR-FXE hybrid engine pushing a combined 170 PS and 305 Nm, or the 2ZR-FE, the 140 PS, 172 Nm non-hybrid variant.

The engines are paired to a CVT that drives the front wheels.

The SUV is the first Toyota car in Vietnam to be equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 - boasting features such as pre-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and blind spot monitor.

These features are limited to the 1.8V and 1.8HV versions only though.

Depending on specifications, creature comforts inside include dual-zone air-conditioning (including vents for rear passengers) and reclining rear seats.

The 9-inch touch screen (not available on the 1.8G) sorts out the infotainment and it also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

To give the two-tone cabin an upmarket feel, there’s leather upholstery on the centre console, seats, steering wheel and door trims.

The Corolla Cross is priced at VND 720 million (~RM131,218) for the 1.8G, VND 820 million (~RM 149,478) for the 1.8V and all the way up to VND 910 million (~RM 165,478) for the 1.8 HV. 

In Vietnam, it goes against the Honda HR-V which starts at VND 786 million (~RM 143,202).

When is the Corolla Cross coming to Malaysia?

The Corolla Cross has been spotted testing, so it's only a matter of time before we see both of them duking it out on our shores, either by the end of this year or early 2021.

Note that prices indicated in this article will not be the same here due to differing tax structures.
