TOYOTA REVEALS THE ALL-NEW YARIS CROSS COMPACT SUV

Post by Rob » Fri Apr 24, 2020 1:41 pm

Toyota today revealed the all-new Yaris Cross, a compact, authentic SUV that will go on sale in the UK and Europe in 2021.

Yaris Cross has been designed and developed for Europe and is an authentic SUV, with a raised ride height, higher driving position and the option of an intelligent all-wheel drive system (AWD-i).

It is built on Toyota’s new GA-B compact car platform, which is also being used for the new Yaris hatchback, due for launch in summer 2020. This ensures a high level of body rigidity and a well-balanced chassis, making the car responsive and agile to drive.

Yaris Cross has the same 2,560mm wheelbase as the hatchback, but is 240mm longer overall, securing more interior space. The ground clearance is 30mm higher and the vehicle is taller and wider overall.

It will be powered by Toyota’s new, fourth generation self-charging hybrid electric system. This has a maximum output of 114bhp, with CO2 emissions starting from below 120g/km for the front-wheel drive model (WLTP provisional data, subject to homologation).

AWD-i provides extra stability and traction in everyday driving, in poor conditions and on low-grip surfaces. An electric system, it is more compact and weighs less than mechanical AWD units, helping the Yaris Cross Hybrid achieve better fuel consumption and CO2 emissions than any of its all-wheel drive B-SUV competitors.

This is so nearly a CHR. Just a few inches shorter. Strange that Toyota seems to be competing with itself?
All the best
