Toyota announces 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid specs

Based on the Corolla sedan, Toyota has debuted its new 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid in the U.S. Available only with all-wheel drive, the Corolla Cross Hybrid uses the TNGA-C platform.

With the new fifth-generation Toyota hybrid system under the hood, coupled with the electronic all-wheel drive system that’s new to the Corolla nameplate, the Corolla Cross Hybrid offers increased power and fuel economy, the company says. Corolla says the Cross Hybrid comes with 194 HP, an 8.0 second 0-60 time and a manufacturer-estimated 37 combined miles per gallon for all grades.

The 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid will be available in three new grades: S, SE and XSE, as well as the LE and XLE grades. The S and SE grades come standard with 17-in. alloy wheels, an 8-in. touchscreen, a sport-tuned suspension, LED head and tail lamps and smart key access, the company says. The SE grade adds privacy glass, roof rails and paddle shifters – not to mention standard blind-spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert. The XSE grade model of the Corolla Cross Hybrid’s sport offering builds on the features of the SE and gains standard 18-in. Alloy wheels, premium LED headlamps, taillamps and fog lamps, softex-trimmed seats with the addition of heated front seats and a power driver’s seat, the company says.

The 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid, along with the gas model launched in 2021, will be assembled in the U.S. at the new Mazda Toyota manufacturing plant in Huntsville, Alabama – a new facility that will have the capacity to roll out up to 150,000 Corolla Cross vehicles per year, the company says.

In contrast to the magnet-free concepts of separately excited synchronous motors (SESM) already available today, ZF said its I2SM (In-Rotor Inductive-Excited Synchronous Motor) transmits the energy for the magnetic field via an inductive exciter inside the rotor shaft. This makes the motor uniquely compact with maximum power and torque density.
