Toyota reveals the all-new Yaris Cross compact SUV
Toyota has revealed the all-new Yaris Cross, a compact SUV designed to take on the Nissan Juke.
The new model is built on Toyota’s new GA-B compact car platform, which is also being used for the new Yaris hatchback. However, it will boast a raised ride height, higher driving position and come with the the option of an intelligent all-wheel drive system (AWD-i) - an electric system that provides extra stability and traction in everyday driving, in poor conditions and on low-grip surfaces.
The Yaris Cross will have more interior space than its hatchback counterpart. Although it has the same 2,560mm wheelbase as the hatchback, it's 240mm longer overall. The ground clearance is 30mm higher too, making the SUV taller and wider overall.
It will be powered by Toyota’s hybrid system, which 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).
The Yaris Cross is expected go on sale in the UK and Europe in 2021. No prices are available at this stage.
