Toyota Yaris Cross Subcompact Crossover

NEX score 68%

Product Overview

The all-new Yaris Cross is Toyota's latest effort in its wide crossover lineup. Based on the popular subcompact Toyota Yaris (4th-gen, XP210), the Yaris Cross is raised for 30mm higher ground clearance than the hatchback; its roof line is also modified to be 90mm taller. Its wheelbase is also 240mm longer than the Yaris.
Drawing on Toyota's strong heritage of hybrid technology, Yaris Cross features Toyota's latest, downsized 1.5L hybrid system. At its heart is a new, inline-3 Atkinson-cycle petrol engine with a 40% rated thermal efficiency—greater than comparable diesel engines.
Toyota's intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD-i) is available on the Yaris Cross, too. AWD-i provides extra stability and traction in incremental conditions. An electric system, it is more compact and lightweight than traditional, mechanical AWD systems, thus minimizing the efficiency penalty of all-wheel drive.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Yaris Cross uses Toyota’s fourth-generation 1.5-litre parallel hybrid, offering 114bhp and a 0-62mph time of 11.2secs. It's built on the same TNGA-B platform as the Yaris and has an identical wheelbase, but is 240mm longer and has 30mm more ground clearance and a bigger boot (397 litres versus 286 litres) It's less extreme than a Juke, and more rugged than a Puma, but certainly not bland. The steering is direct and responsive, making it superbly practical for urban manoeuvring and surprisingly engaging on faster, flowing roads.

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The new Toyota Yaris Cross effectively packages what we've come to like about the latest Yaris Hybrid into a compact SUV body. It's exceptionally efficient, if not the most startling performer. The hybrid drivetrain takes little getting used to and is easy to extract fantastic efficiency from. It could be a great company car option too, thanks to CO2 emissions from as low as 102g/km.

The top of the range is split in two, between Excel and Dynamic. Both get 18-inch alloys, a nine-inch infotainment set-up with wireless smartphone integration, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. Dynamic features a two-tone paint finish with a black roof, and gets the option of AWD-i four-wheel drive. For the first year of the car's life, the Premiere Edition will offer well-heeled customers black leather upholstery.

Pros
  • Powerful e-CVT

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Yaris Cross has the capacity to surprise and delight in its fourth-generation hybrid drivetrain. Its unstressed 1.5-litre triple is smooth and eager, and mates beautifully with the E-CVT transmission and motor to create an effortless drive. There are four models to choose from, plus a fully featured Premiere Edition version, available for one year only.
