The NHTSA is yet to conduct a Corolla Cross safety review but the IIHS has tested the 2022 Corolla Cross and it emerged with Good scores all-round and a 2022 Top Safety Pick+ award, the agency's highest accolade, so safety appears to be top-notch.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Toyota provides two safety systems as standard. The first is the Star Safety System, which consists of basic safety systems like stability and traction control, ABS, and EBD. In addition, it gets nine airbags, with protection including a driver's knee airbag, curtain airbags, and side airbags for all outboard seating positions. In addition, the Corolla Cross gets LATCH anchors, tire-pressure monitoring, and a rearview camera.
All models also get the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 driver assistance suite, consisting of full-speed dynamic radar cruise control, a pre-collision system with pedestrian/cyclist detection, lane-trace assist, lane-departure alert with steering assist, road-sign assist, and automatic high beams. LE trim adds safe-exit assist and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and the XLE gets dynamic gridlines for its backup camera, plus front/rear parking sensors with automatic braking.

Even though the Corolla Cross is still so new, it steps into the ring with exemplary reliability ratings so far, with J.D. Power scoring the 2022 model a very good 82 out of 100 for quality and reliability. In an impressive showing for a new product, the 2022 Cross wasn't recalled at all, and at the time of writing, the 2023 model was still recall-free as well.
Each Corolla Cross is sold with a three-year/36,000-mile comprehensive warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. We're impressed to see that the Corolla Cross comes with a two-year/25,000-mile scheduled service plan at this price level.
