As we told you in recent weeks, Toyota launched a new midsize SUV globally. Known as Corolla Cross, the first market to receive the model was Thailand, although little by little, its commercial launch will reach other regions of the world.
Among the different Asian countries that were protagonists in receiving this sport utility, Vietnam attracted attention, according to different issues. First of all, the model will launch this week and it is the first time that it has been observed with the steering wheel on the left.
Other details to take into account are some slight design modifications such as the incorporation of a new slat along the grille, an unprecedented front bumper with different contours to the Thai variant, among other appliques that stand out in the rear sector (specifically on the trunk lid).
Regarding the types of configuration, the versions with a hybrid system will have some elements highlighted in blue, while those that are combustion will have different chrome trim.
The Corolla Cross will continue to land in different markets around the world and it is expected that next year it will make its debut in our region, where it will be produced at the Brazilian plant in Sorocaba and will share several components present in the Corolla (also produced in Brazil). Among them, the TNGA modular platform, the motorization (2.0 of 170 CV and 1.8 hybrid of 122 CV), added to different very characteristic elements derived from the sedan. In a rising segment, it is expected to compete with Ford Territory, Jeep Compass y Volkswagen Tarek.
