Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) has revealed pricing and specification for the local line-up of the Corolla Cross, which is scheduled to go on sale in South Africa at the start of November 2021. See pricing below…

Corolla Cross
Three levels of specification will be on offer – Xi, Xs and Xr.

The Cross-badged version of the Japanese automaker’s popular family car will be available with the option of three levels of specification, Xi, Xs and Xr. Xi trim denotes the entry-level model which, TSAM says, is aimed at customers seeking value motoring. As standard, Xi grade includes, among others, LED taillamps, keyless entry, a multi-information display, single-zone climate control, cruise control, and power-adjustable and automatically retractable exterior mirrors.

Mid-tier Xs models upgrade to LED headlamps; dual-zone climate control; a TFT multi-information display, replete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto screen-mirroring functionality; and leather upholstery for the interior. Further included in Xs level of specification are a reverse-view camera, supplemented by park distance sensors, and rain-sensing wipers. Range-topping Xr models, Toyota says, offer customers additional convenience and safety specification and an upgrade to 18-inch alloy wheels.

These include driver, passenger, and driver-knee airbags (Xi and Xs models, with Xr gaining curtain airbags); Isofix child-seat anchorages; ABS and EBD; hill assist control (HAC); and an anti-theft system. Xr models also gain the Japanese car manufacturer’s Safety Sense package (TSS), which comprises adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-trace assist and a pre-collision system.

Hybrid models produce a total system output of 90 kW.
