Toyota launches Facelifted Corolla Cross SUV In Thailand

The Toyota Corolla Cross SUV made its debut in 2020, initially entering the Thai market as part of the Corolla family SUV lineup.

While variations exist across different markets—such as distinct designs for the American and Japanese markets—the European version, introduced in 2021, largely retained the aesthetic of its Thai counterpart from nearly four years prior. Now, Toyota has unveiled a refreshed version of the Corolla Cross.

In terms of design, the 2024 Toyota Corolla Cross showcases a significantly revamped front fascia. Notably, it features a frameless grille design reminiscent of a blend between Volvo EM90 and Lexus RX models. Notably, this new grille design is not mirrored in the top-tier GR Sport variant.

Regardless of the variant, all models boast updated fully LED headlights, akin to those seen on the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) Corolla Cross. These headlights boast a novel crystal-like light signature that also serves as sequential turn indicators.

Variants with the new front-end design sport headlights connected by a new trim strip, enhancing the crossover’s modern and upscale appearance.

Moving to the rear, all models now feature LED taillights, adopting a design similar to the JDM model. However, these changes largely conclude the exterior revisions.

As with its predecessor, the facelifted model offers two powertrain options: a naturally-aspirated 1.8-liter gasoline engine or a 1.8-liter self-charging hybrid powertrain. The non-electrified version delivers 138 hp (103 kW/140 PS) and 172 Nm (127 lb-ft) of torque, powering the front wheels via the Super CVT-i gearbox.

Meanwhile, the hybrid variant combines the 1.8-liter engine with an electric motor for a total output of 121 hp (90 kW/122 PS), channeled to the front wheels through an E-CVT gearbox.
