The upcoming 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross is an all-new SUV from Toyota that will be hitting American shores in the future near Sandusky. For now, there is plenty of information that is up in the air. Yet, there are some speculations about what might be in the Corolla Cross regarding the States. Here is what we know so far.

How Similar is the Corolla Cross to the Corolla?

While the two vehicles share the Corolla name, the two differ greatly already. For one, the Corolla is a compact car, while the Corolla Cross is an SUV that sits firmly in between the smaller C-HR and the RAV4. It'll play a similar role to vehicles like the Kia Seltos, the Nissan Rogue Sport, and the Jeep Compass. Expect it to be closer to subcompact SUV.

The Powertrain

While there hasn't been much information on specifics about the engine, transmission, and overall performance, we can speculate on what type of powertrain will be in the Corolla Cross based on the Thailand release. The Corolla Cross features a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with a continuously variable engine and front-wheel drive in Thailand. This produces 138 horsepower. There's also news that globally the Corolla Cross offers optional hybrid powertrains as well. It's possible these could find their way to the States as well.

What About the Interior, Tech, and Safety?

While, again, there aren't many details about things like the cabin, cargo space, and technology, we can guess that there will be plenty of room for passengers on the inside. This is due to its larger exterior frame. Based on released photos, features like a partial digital display, ambient lighting, and a faux-leather wrapped dashboard appear inside. And we expect Toyota to standardize driver-assistance features as it has with most of its other models.

Look Forward to the 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross

While there is still so much more to learn about the upcoming Corolla Cross, it's exciting to brainstorm what the possibilities are. Stay tuned to learn more about this new SUV from Toyota.
