The current Toyota Corolla sedan is a stunning vehicle. Unfortunately, we can't say the same when it comes to the Corolla Cross. It hits the current major Toyota design cues, particularly with the grille, but it is on the bland sign of design. The designers tried to spice it up with accents on the front and rear wings, but these elements won't stop the Corolla Cross from disappearing in crowded parking lots. It's a generic take on the small crossover, which will still find favor with most customers. All models get LED headlights with automatic high beams, while XLE models get LED fog lights and DRLs additionally. The L trim comes standard with 17-inch steel wheels with silver covers, while the LE gets 17-inch alloys. The range-topping XLE rides on 18-inch alloys with a black-painted machined finish.
The 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross is wider and significantly taller than the Corolla sedan, but it isn't as long. It's 175.6 inches in length and is 71.9 inches wide without the mirrors, and 64.9 inches tall when measured to the tip of the antenna. The ground clearance is rated at an impressive 8.1 inches for the XLE and 8.2 inches for the lower two trims. All models ride on a 103.9-inch wheelbase.
The lightest Corolla Cross is the LE in front-wheel-drive guise. It weighs 3,115 pounds. The heaviest model is the XLE with all-wheel drive, weighing in at 3,325 lbs. Compared to the XLE sedan, the Corolla Cross weighs almost 300 lbs more. Given the current appeal of a crossover body, we think most people will be happy to carry that extra weight around.
