Building on the incredible legacy of its best-selling vehicle, Ebrahim K. Kanoo is proud to announce the launch of the brand-new addition to the Corolla family at the Toyota Showroom in Sitra. Designed to move occupants in comfort and style, the all-new Corolla Cross hybrid compact SUV delivers outstanding performance and a smooth ride for drivers and passengers alike that makes it the ideal choice for those seeking adventure, doing business, or simply spending time with friends or loved ones.
Since its launch in Japan in 1966, the Corolla series has achieved a cumulative total of over 48 million sales in more than 150 countries and regions around the world. The model has continued to evolve in line with the needs of the times; this latest version caters to the strong demand for SUVs in the region, enabling customers to select the vehicle that best suits their diverse lifestyles.
The all-new Corolla Cross has been designed as a new type of SUV that combines a tough urban-style exterior with a comfortable and convenient interior to exceed customer expectations. The TNGA platform (GA-C) has enabled the Corolla Cross to achieve high-quality performance, a comfortable ride, and outstanding quietness.
Toyota has combined its leadership in HEV development and extensive experience in the SUV arena with its legendary Quality, Durability, and Reliability (QDR) to create the all-new Toyota Corolla Cross HEV.
The 2021 Corolla Cross sports a distinctive look complemented by a comfortable interior with exceptional quality and finishing. The cabin is accentuated with an extensive range of features such a one-touch moonroof, a 7-inch colour Multi-Information Display (MID) in the cluster gauge, 8-inch multimedia display integrated with Apple CarPlay® and Android AutoTM, six-speaker audio system, 60:40 split-folding rear seats, and smart entry and start systems.
The vehicle’s thrilling drive personality is brought to life by a new electrified hybrid system that combines two power sources. Its 1.8-litre Atkinson-cycle petrol engine produces 97 hp, working in tandem with two electric motors that generate 71 hp, with a combined power of 121 hp. The system is mated to an Electrically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) that contributes to an outstanding fuel consumption value of 23.7km/l. Drivers can also choose between ECO, NORMAL, and SPORT driving modes to suit their driving styles. In addition, a separately switchable EV Mode can be combined with any of these three driving modes for electric-only, silent and emission-free driving at low speeds and for short distances.
The all-new model offers remarkable cabin quietness and smooth acceleration, especially when accelerating from a stand-still. The vehicle can be driven entirely on electrical power with zero-fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions, or by combining the power generated from the petrol engine and two electric motors, depending on its speed and driver behaviour. The hybrid-electric batteries are continuously charged by the petrol engine or when decelerating and braking, eliminating the need to plug in a power cord. The HEV features a host of advanced technologies yet drives like any conventional vehicle and does not require special fuel.
As with any other Toyota model, safety remains a top priority for the all-new Corolla Cross. The vehicle’s advanced safety system features a comprehensive array of safety features to protect its occupants, such as seven SRS airbags (including side-curtain airbags and driver’s knee airbag), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Tyre Pressure Warning System (TPWS), among many others.
The vehicle’s eye-catching exterior is highlighted by 17-inch alloy wheels. A choice of seven exciting exterior hues add to its striking visual appeal, including Celestite Gray Metallic, Super White 2, Platinum White Pearl MC, Silver ME, Gray ME, Black MC, and Red M.M. Further personalization is made possible with the addition of two bi-tone variants that allow customers to pair Black MC or Red M.M. with a choice of four attractive colour combinations. Meanwhile, the interior is in earthy Terra Rossa. Interested customers can visit the Toyota Showroom in Sitra, call 17730730 or visit Toyota.com.bh
