Model Preview

The Toyota Corolla Cross will be a carryover for the 2023 model year. Order guide data indicates the gas Corolla Cross will see no change in specs, though a first-ever Corolla Cross Hybrid is coming at a later date. Here's a look at what to expect with the latest version of the brand's subcompact SUV for 2023.

Despite its name, the Toyota Corolla Cross bears no resemblance to its namesake. Instead, it boasts a brand-new look that borrows outward styling cues from the larger RAV4. Speaking of size, the model bridges the gap between the C-HR and RAV4, filling the demand for a small crossover that can actually haul some cargo.

Under its hood, the Corolla Cross offers one gas engine option: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 169 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. This engine pairs with a continuously variable transmission and ships power to the front or all four wheels. The biggest difference with the smaller C-HR is the option to buy a Corolla Cross with all-wheel drive.

There are confirmed reports that Toyota will launch a Corolla Cross Hybrid, but its powertrain details remain unknown. Logic suggests it’ll be an upgraded version of the Corolla Hybrid’s 121-hp 1.8-liter hybrid unit, as this will likely be too underpowered for this size of the vehicle. There are also unconfirmed reports of a potential plug-in hybrid model. Corolla Cross PHEV range remains an option question.

Like most Toyota models, the current Corolla Cross has a lot of standard safety gear, including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and automatic high beams. LE models gain blind-spot monitors, and XLEs get parking sensors and rear cross-traffic braking. We expect these standard features to remain the same in 2023. The IIHS and NHTS haven’t tested the Corolla Cross yet.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect the 2023 Toyota Corolla Cross to be released in late 2022.

2023 Corolla Cross pricing will start at $24,395 including destination. Based on our analysis, this represents a roughly $600 price increase compared to the previous year. For reference, current Corolla Cross Prices start at $23,780. MSRPs for the hybrid and rumored PHEV have not been announced.

This tiny crossover will battle the Mazda CX-30, Volkswagen Taos, and Honda HR-V.
