Posted on June 15, 2023
The 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross is a compact crossover that fits snugly between the RAV4 and CH-R. It offers buyers the value and reliability of the Corolla while throwing in more cargo capacity 1,500 pounds of towing capacity and higher ground clearance. Combine that with a more spacious interior and a great list of standard features and we know a lot of buyers are going to love the new Corolla Cross. In fact, here are five reasons why it might be the perfect choice for your next vehicle.
#1 There is a Corolla Cross Trim For Everyone
The 2022 Corolla Cross is available in three trim levels: L, LE and XLE. All come with a 169-horsepower four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission.
The 2022 Corolla L comes with 17-inch steel wheels, heated side mirrors, LED headlights, heated side mirrors, keyless entry, 60/40-split folding rear seat, 7-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system and satellite radio.
The 2022 Corolla LE includes upgrades such as 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, push-button start and keyless entry, leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic climate control, heated side mirrors, an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless charging pad, three USB ports and blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.
The 2022 Corolla XLE adds even more luxuries with 18-inch alloy wheels, auto-dimming rearview mirror, simulated leather upholstery, fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable driver seat, heated front seats, rear-seat folding armrest, front and rear parking sensors and Rear automatic braking.
All Corolla Cross trims come standard with Toyota Safety Suite 2.5+ which includes Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Mitigation, and Lane Keeping System. You can also add upgrades like a power lift gate, sunroof and nine-speaker JBL sound system to the Corolla Cross XLE.
All this is to say — with an abundance of options and variations in trims and offerings, there is a Corolla Cross trim that suits everyone. Whether you prefer keeping things economical or want all the creature comforts at your fingertips, the 2022 Cross can be modified to suit your specific style and needs.
#2 The Corolla Cross is Fuel Efficient in Winter & Summer
Let’s face it — in Edmonton, we spend 8 months of the year driving in winter conditions. So all-wheel-drive is essential. But with gas prices soaring, blending fuel efficiency with winter-time control can be a struggle. Thankfully, Toyota was able to do it.
Buyers can add Dynamic Torque Control All Wheel Drive system on four of the six available models for an affordable step up of just $1,400. On easier roadways, the system operates in FWD mode to get you maximum fuel efficiency. But when things get icy, the system automatically directs up to 50 percent of power to the rear wheels to help drivers stay in control. And it does this with an estimated fuel efficiency of 7.8 L/100 km. Drivers looking to get the most out of each tank of gas can choose between two front-wheel drive models, which boost fuel efficiency to an estimated 7.8 L/100 km combined.
#3 The Corolla Cross Offers a Value You Can’t Say No To
The compact crossover market is on fire these days as buyers look for vehicles that offer a little more space, and a lot more utility all for a lot less in cost than a full-sized SUV. The Corolla Cross was designed specifically with this in mind.
The 2022 Corolla Cross has a starting MSRP under $25,000 and for just a slight step-up, buyers can add the confidence of AWD. That puts it at almost $5,000 under the Toyota RAV4 and about $5,000 above the Corolla — smack dab in the middle.
For that price point, the Corolla Cross offers a ton of added value. Inside, the cabin is comfortable, spacious, and functional. With 60/40 split rear seats that fold to free up 608 L of space, the Corolla Cross is the perfect companion to have on your next adventure. It even tows up to 1,500 pounds should you want to bring a toy or two along with you on the road.
#4 The Corolla Cross is Geared For Adventures
Adventure enthusiast? The Corolla Cross is a perfect option for buyers who need to keep things under 30 K. In addition to available AWD and a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds, the Corolla Cross also has some more ground clearance than some of its rivals, making it far easier to clear ruts or rocks when cruising off the beaten path.
Blend all that with a full set of standard driver assistance features and you have a vehicle ready to take you on your next adventure.
#5 The Corolla Cross Bests The Competition
The Corolla Cross is up against some pretty solid competition in the Honda HR-V, Hyundai Kona and Mazda CX-30. So how does this crossover fair? To sum things up, the Corolla Cross offers a better fuel economy, more interior space and standard safety features than its rivals.
