Texas, April 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Toyota
Corolla Cross Hybrid's efficiency not only helps further Toyota's
commitment to a carbon neutral future, but it does so in style.
Value-priced and packed with features not typically found in a
small crossover, Corolla Cross hits the sweet spot with the
engaging driving experience of a small car and the functionality of
a larger crossover. Arriving in dealerships this June, Corolla
Cross Hybrid will have a starting manufacturer's suggested retail
price (MSRP) of $27,970.
The all-new Corolla Cross Hybrid is sporty by nature,
representing the perfect next step for this model line. From a
design perspective, it offers an approachable exterior as well as a
higher line-of-sight thanks to the revised TNGA-C platform. For all
three Sport grades, the Corolla Cross Hybrid offers eye-catching
details that set it apart from its gas sibling, such as unique
front and rear styling. There's even available two-toned paint and
18-inch alloy wheels with sporty looks that are destined to
"Corolla Cross is an incredibly packaged vehicle and adding the
hybrid powertrain to the lineup is truly the cherry on top," said
Michael Tripp, vice president,
Toyota marketing. "Overall, Corolla Cross Hybrid is jam-packed with
features and spec at a great price point that we know customers
The 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid, along with the gas model that
launched in the 2022 model year, will be assembled in the U.S. at
the brand-new Mazda Toyota Manufacturing plant in Huntsville, Alabama. As part of Toyota's
diverse approach to its carbon neutrality goal, Corolla Cross
Hybrid is yet another vehicle that supports the "beyond zero"
effort. Beyond Zero represents Toyota's vision to reach beyond zero
emissions through our products, services, and operations that make
a net positive impact on our planet and society. It's no
coincidence that Toyota offers the widest range of zero and
low-emission powertrains in the market. This provides customers a
way in which they can reduce carbon as much as possible while still
meeting their current lifestyle and mobility needs.
Toyota is committed to helping reduce carbon emissions by giving
customers 15 electrified vehicles for customers to choose from,
including 11 hybrid models, two plug-in hybrid models, the
all-electric bZ4X battery electric vehicle, and the zero-emission
hydrogen fuel cell electric Mirai (currently available in
Performance and Efficiency
The Corolla Cross Hybrid is fun to drive. Available exclusively
in all-wheel drive (AWD), the TNGA-C platform and hybrid powertrain
combo enables the Corolla Cross Hybrid to achieve high-quality
performance and efficiency, while also providing a comfortable ride
with outstanding spaciousness.
With the new Fifth Generation Toyota Hybrid System under the
hood, coupled with the Electronic All-Wheel Drive system that's new
to the Corolla nameplate, the new Corolla Cross Hybrid offers
increased power and impressive EPA-estimated fuel-economy ratings.
With 196 horsepower and an 8 second 0-60 time, the Corolla Cross
Hybrid is fun to drive. It also has an impressive
EPA-estimated 42 combined miles per gallon rating for all
grades. The Corolla Cross Hybrid is equipped with a
Lithium-Ion battery, which is more compact and lighter without
compromising on power. Additionally, the cooling paths have been
optimized to reduce cabin fan noise. Even better – the
battery that powers the Fifth-Generation Hybrid System is
located under the rear seats, further maximizing cargo capacity and
giving a nice, low center of gravity.

Standard Across All Grades: Toyota Audio Multimedia
Standard across all Corolla Cross grades for 2023 is the new
Toyota Audio Multimedia System, with Wireless Apple
CarPlay® and Android Auto™, and added USB-C charge
ports to keep all your devices ready for action.
Thanks to the Toyota Audio Multimedia system, designed and
engineered by Toyota's Texas-based
Connected Technologies team, Corolla Cross drivers will be at the
ready thanks to a wide range of enhanced connectivity and
convenience features, including Over-the-Air (OTA) update
capability. Users can interact with the system through intuitive
touch and voice activation controls. With the available Connected
Service Drive Connect trial or subscription, drivers and passengers
have access to Intelligent Assistant, Cloud Navigation and
Destination Assist. With Intelligent Assistant, simple phrases like
"Hey Toyota" awaken the system for voice activated commands to
search for directions, find Points of Interest (POI), adjust audio
controls, change the cabin temperatures and more. Cloud Navigation,
the available onboard navigation solution, utilizes the cloud to
download the latest available map, traffic and routing information.
To ensure users have the most up-to-date search capabilities, POI
search is provided by Google® Points-of-Interest data.
Destination Assist also gives access to 24/7 live agent assistance
to locate the next destination.
The new Toyota Audio Multimedia system allows for dual
Bluetooth® phone connectivity, with support for standard
wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility.
With further connectivity, the Corolla Cross has an available Wi-Fi
Connect subscription that offers 4G connectivity for up to five
devices – turning the Corolla Cross into an AT&T Hotspot.
Adding to the already robust offering of audio playback ability
with HD Radio®, USB data and a SiriusXM®
Platinum Plan 3-month trial subscription, Wi-Fi Connect also
enables the new Integrated Streaming feature,
providing customers the ability to link their separate
Apple Music® and Amazon Music subscriptions to the
vehicle for onboard control.
Standard Toyota Safety Sense 3.0
In addition to collision protection provided by the TNGA-C
platform, all 2023 Corolla Cross models come standard with Toyota
Safety Sense 3.0, Toyota's suite of active safety systems, which
includes enhancements made possible by system sensors with improved
detection capability. This suite of safety features includes:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) is
designed to help detect a vehicle or pedestrian and provide an
audio/visual forward-collision warning under certain circumstances.
If you don't react, the system is designed to provide automatic
emergency braking. Depending on the system, a bicyclist and
motorcyclist may also be detected in certain circumstances.
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- When white/yellow lane markings or certain road-edge boundary
lines are detected at speeds within the system's operating range,
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) * is designed
to issue an audio/visual lane departure warning if an inadvertent
lane departure is detected. If the driver does not take corrective
action, the system is also designed to provide gentle corrective
steering for lane-keeping assistance.
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
- Intended for highway use, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
and Full-Speed Range DRCC are adaptive cruise control systems that
are designed to be set at speeds above 20 mph and use
vehicle-to-vehicle distance control to help maintain a preset
distance from the vehicle ahead of you.
- Lane Tracing Assist
- When Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is enabled and lane
markers are visible, Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) uses the lines on
the road and/or preceding vehicles to provide active driving
assistance and help keep the vehicle centered and in its lane.
- Road Sign Assist
- Using an intelligent camera, Road Sign Assist (RSA) is designed
to detect speed limit signs, stop signs, Do Not Enter signs and
yield signs, and display an icon of the sign on the
Multi-Information Display (MID).
- Automatic High Beams
- Automatic High Beams (AHB) are designed to help you see more
clearly at night at speeds above 21 mph. The AHB system is designed
to detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of
preceding vehicles, then automatically toggle between high and low
The Toyota Safety Sense features has been enhanced for TSS
- The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection has enhanced
detection capabilities thanks to new system sensors. It receives
enhanced intersection support with improved detection capability in
certain circumstances. It also adds the capability to detect a
motorcyclist, in addition to a bicyclist and pedestrian.
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist has enhanced lane
recognition that includes detection of certain 3D objects, like
guardrails, that may be used to help define the lane.
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control adds a fourth following distance
setting, from the previously available three. Enhanced vehicle
detection allows for the ability to detect more than one preceding
vehicle, as well as vehicles in adjacent lanes. This helps the
system to provide smoother, more natural speed adjustments,
especially when the driver changes lanes.
- Like Lane Departure Alert, lane recognition is enhanced for
Lane Tracing Assist. This system now also helps provide more space
between vehicles being passed in adjacent lanes. It works by
offsetting the vehicles' driving path with minor steering
adjustments while keeping the vehicle within its lane.
- An Emergency Driving Stop System has been added to Lane Tracing
Assist. It's designed to monitor the driver's inputs, such as
steering operation, to determine if they're inattentive or
non-responsive, such as during a medical emergency. This feature
can bring the vehicle to a stop if the driver doesn't respond to
alerts to take control.
- Road Sign Assist gets expanded sign detection capabilities that
now include certain intersection signs and warning signs, like
In addition to the TSS 3.0 system, other standard safety
features include Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), which is designed to
help detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in
the adjacent lanes and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) for added
peace of mind by helping to detect vehicles approaching from either
side while backing out and alerting you with a visual and audible
warning. Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) also comes standard.
