Toyota Yaris Cross launched

Published 23 April 2021

Toyota is launching a new small SUV, the Yaris Cross. The rugged cross is available with front-wheel or four-wheel drive. It will go on sale in the UK in May with prices starting from £22,515. 

The Toyota Yaris Cross is the smallest SUV in the firm’s range, sitting below the C-HR and competing against the likes of the Nissan Juke and Volkswagen T-Cross. Toyota’s latest crossover will be built alongside the new Yaris, on which it's based, at the firm’s manufacturing facility in France.

It shares its platform and engine with the latest Yaris, following the brand’s well-established hybrid strategy. As such, the Yaris Cross will use a three-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine combined with an electric motor. Fuel economy figures are yet to be confirmed, but Toyota claims CO2 emissions are less than 120g/km on front-wheel-drive models and 135g/km for all-wheel-drive variants.

Toyota Yaris Cross Interior 

Entry-level Icon trim will offer 16-inch wheels, an eight-inch infotainment system and reversing camera. Design trim adds 17-inch wheels, LED front and rear lights, roof rails and a seven-inch digital driver display, while Excel models are priced from £26,745 — adding 18-inch wheels, a nine-inch infotainment screen and heated front seats and steering wheel.

The more rugged-looking Dynamic trim costs from £26,465 and adds increased body protection, a set of silver roof rails and 18-inch wheels with a dark grey finish. Premiere Edition models offer leather seats, a 10-inch infotainment screen, JBL audio system and bi-tone paint scheme.

The top-spec model is priced from £28,185, with both the Dynamic and Premiere Edition trims being available with optional all-wheel drive. Prices for those versions start at £28,825 and £30,545 respectively.

Toyota Yaris Cross Read

The Toyota Yaris Cross  shares the same 2560mm wheelbase as the Yaris but has been extended by 240mm to offer more interior space. With an extra 90mm in height (including 30mm of ground clearance) compared to the Yaris hatchback, the Yaris Cross will appeal to small hatch drivers who want a higher driving position and more interior space.

The car offers a range of driver assistance systems, including automatic braking and steering intervention. The boot of the Yaris Cross has an adjustable height and an additional underfloor storage compartment.

Shockingly expensive. The same money will buy the all new 2021 Honda HR-V. I know which I would rather have.

Way overpriced.

Can get amuch bigger and possibly better car for same ( or less) money , eg Honda HRV

Toyota no doubt will sell lots, as small SUV is in demand.

Waited for this car, but as I did not know release time frame, bought a Honda Jazz.

Top spec standard Honda Jazz ( not the Cross Star) is less expensive than the Yaris Cross Excel.

The Japanese are following the German car manufacterer's.

Charging silly money for useless accessories (car garnish).
