Toyota reveals 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid

The vehicle will have 196 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 42 combined miles per gallon for all trim levels.

Toyota is expanding the Corolla Cross family by adding the new 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid, based on the Corolla sedan. 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.

Available exclusively with all-wheel drive (AWD), the Corolla Cross Hybrid is built on Toyota’s TNGA-C platform, enabling the all-new model to achieve high-quality performance, a comfortable ride and spaciousness, the company says. 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 new Corolla Cross Hybrid offers increased power and fuel economy. The vehicle will have 196 horsepower and an 8.0 second 0-60 time, and an EPA-estimated 42 combined mpg for all grades.

The 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid will be available in three new grades: S, SE and XSE. The S and SE grades come standard with 17-inch Alloy wheels, an 8-inch touchscreen, a sport-tuned suspension, LED head and tail lamps and smart key access. The SE grade adds privacy glass, roof rails and paddle shifters, as well as a standard Blind-Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). When moving up to the XSE grade, the Corolla Cross Hybrid’s sportiest offering builds on the features of the SE and gains standard 18-inch Alloy wheels, premium LED head lamps, taillamps and fog lamps, Softex-trimmed seats with the addition of heated front seats and a power driver’s seat.
