What you can buy for the same price as the cheapest Toyota Corolla Cross

The new Toyota Corolla Cross was recently revealed, with its South African starting price coming in at R349,900.

For this amount, you get the entry-level Xi specification – which comes with a generous list of features.

This includes automatic headlights, LED taillamps, keyless entry, powered mirrors, a multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, a manual air conditioner, all-round electric windows, and a multi-information display in the analogue gauge cluster.

Furthermore, this model has a Bluetooth-capable radio with a six-speaker sound system with Toyota Connect support as standard.

In conjunction with the MyToyota app, Toyota Connect lets you check the health of the vehicle battery, call for roadside assistance, manage services, and share vehicle locations.

All Corolla Cross models are equipped with hill assist control, ABS, and four airbags, too, and score a 5-star Asean NCAP crash rating.

Driving the Corolla Cross Xi is a 1.8-litre, naturally-aspirated, petrol engine producing 103kW and 173Nm.

The motor pairs to a CVT transmission that directs power to the front wheels, and combined fuel consumption is rated at 6.8l/100km.

Toyota has not provided the official acceleration figures for the Corolla Cross yet, but top speed is pinned at 185km/h.

As such, the new SUV is likely to slot in below the Toyota RAV4 in the company’s line-up, as it measures smaller in every dimension and is more affordable.

The market

The Toyota Corolla Cross Xi has a South African price of R349,900 – which includes a 3-year/100,000km warranty and a six-services/90,000km service plan.

Its feature-set and relatively-affordable price tag therefore pin it against the country’s most popular small SUVs.
