What’s New for the 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross?
The Corolla Cross 2022 has a similar name to the simpler Toyota Corolla, but this vehicle comes in the shape of an SUV, where its tall ride-height feature makes it a typical compact hatchback. This car is also powered by a hybrid powertrain which allows the driver to access the all-wheel-drive option. This car comes in three different models:
- Toyota Corolla Cross L
- Toyota Corolla Cross LE
- Toyota Corolla Cross XLE
The Toyota Corolla Cross XLE is the most expensive of the three models, where it is priced around $27,540, but it is the model that offers the most features. This car is ideal for anyone who is an SUV buyer. Toyota Corolla Cross 2022 offers a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, the front seat heating option, automatic climate control using dual-zone, blind-spot monitoring alongside some beautiful aluminum 18-inch wheels. The all-wheel-drive feature of this car comes for an additional $1300 of the original price.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The latest version of the Toyota Corolla Cross in 2022 will feature a 169 horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an ongoing variable automatic transmission. The car comes in both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive options for different prices. The powertrain installed in the Toyota Cross is not thrilling, but it is reliable and produces a decent fuel economy alongside an adequate performance. If we talk about the towing capacity of the SUV, this vehicle can tow-haul up to 1500 pounds of weight. The CVT transmission available in the vehicle produces a very smooth acceleration and possesses the needed on-demand power. If we discuss the fuel economy of this vehicle, if the buyer chooses the front-wheel-drive-mod of the car, then the car gives 31 miles per gallon in the city and 33 miles per gallon on the highway. On the contrary, if the buyer is the all-wheel-drive-mod, then the car gives around 29 miles per gallon in the city and 32 miles per gallon on the highway.
The Interior and Comfort of the car
All those Toyota customers who are already familiar with the Toyota Corolla simple model will find themselves right at home inside the Corolla Cross.

But there’s a difference, Toyota Corolla Cross has a larger dimension that adds more room for passengers, especially in the back seat area. Because of the larger dimensions, the vehicle also has more cargo space available for use. The XLE model of Corolla Cross is more expensive than the other models; that is why it has a beautiful faux-leather upholstery alongside heated front seats.
