Toyota has finally unveiled the compact SUV for the European market, the Yaris Cross. Originally, the Toyota Yaris Cross was scheduled to make a world premiere at the 2020 Geneva motor show, which got cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Yaris Cross is based on the latest generation Yaris hatchback available in the European market. The compact SUV underpins the company's TNGA-B platform. The Yaris Cross measures 4,180mm in length, is 1765mm wide, 1560mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2560mm. The new Yaris Cross compact SUV will be positioned below the popular C-HR globally.
The new compact SUV features styling cues from the current Toyota SUVs. At the front, it gets a two-tier grille with the Toyota logo right at the top of it, high-placed headlamps with DRLs and circular fog lamps on the lower half of the bumper (all lighting systems feature LEDs). The compact SUV also gets squared-off wheel arches and a blacked-out floating roof design. It also gets a pair of sleek-looking taillamp units and sits on 18-inch wheels.
The Toyota Yaris Cross features stylish interiors with ambient lighting, a larger floating touchscreen display and a digital instrument cluster. Moreover, the cargo area is said to have an adjustable floor and split-folding rear seats for more luggage space.
Mechanically, the Yaris Cross gets a single hybrid powertrain. The unit is a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine mated to an electric motor and together it pumps out 115bhp of maximum power. The compact SUV will also be offered with an all-wheel-drive system.
