2021 Toyota Corolla – The famous Japanese automaker launched Cross Corolla in Thailand last week and from what we heard it could end up on US soil. The upcoming model will use a new Toyota Global Architecture C (TGNA-C) that is used in many of today’s Toyota models. The upcoming Toyota Corolla Cross 2021 is a new crossover that looks fantastic. In general, the same Toyota New Global Architecture C (TGNA-C) is used as the C-HR crossover.
Overall, it seems similar to C-HR, but much more stylish. According to the manufacturer, the Corolla Cross should be one centimeter wider, two centimeters higher and three centimeters longer than the C-HR. Corolla Cross’s body shape is quite similar to that of the RAV4. The new cross is 175.5 inches long, 71.9 inches wide and 63.8 inches high, complete with a 103.9 inch wheelbase. This model offers an identical upright appearance and a distinctive front end.
In general, we like the much more angry headlights of the Toyota Corolla Cross and a black-framed grille that improve the look. RAV4 similarities also continue at the back. Basically, we see the same thin LED taillights and a bumper with black trim and an artificial underride protection plate.
Cabin with new 9-inch touchscreen
Inside, the brand new Toyota Corolla Cross 2021 looks modern and unique. Of course, the design is recognized by a dashboard, which mainly comes from the regular Corolla models. The center console looks fantastic and the manufacturer used a new 9-inch touchscreen that is compatible with the Apple CarPlay system. The comfort is great and we like the new electric front seat system. Further standard features of this model are the two-zone automatic climate control, an electric tailgate, a 360-degree camera system and the comprehensive Safety Sense Suite from Toyota with driver assistance functions.
Release date and price
The arrival of the Toyota Corolla Cross 2021 should take place this year. After news of the Yaris Cross model, there is more and more news that the Toyota Corolla Cross will enter the US market. In addition, the price is still a mystery, but we can expect it to be announced soon.
