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…
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.
As standard, all Corolla Cross variants feature an array of safety items as standard. 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.
As a reminder, the petrol-powered Corolla Cross is endowed with Toyota’s 1.8-litre normally aspirated four-cylinder motor, which produces 103 kW and 173 N.m of torque. The petrol-electric models’ 1.8-litre hybrid powertrain, meanwhile, produces a total system output of 90 kW. All models come equipped with a CVT transmission.
All Corolla Cross models ship with TSAM’s six services/90 000 km service plan and three-year/100 000 km warranty as standard. Hybrid models, meanwhile, feature an eight-year warranty on the hybrid battery.
