Is the new 2022 Corolla Cross an SUV or a sedan?

Brand-new 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross Announced!

For all of us here at Arlington Toyota in Palatine, IL, this past week has been crazy. Toyota has revealed a bunch of new trims for our favorite Toyota models. Not only that, but they also revealed a brand-new model: the 2022 Corolla Cross.

The Corolla has always been a sedan or a hatchback. What is the 2022 Corolla Cross? Is it an SUV or a sedan?

New Compact Crossover Revealed

On June 2, 2021, Toyota officially revealed the 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross, a compact crossover based off of the Corolla platform. Unlike the Corolla Sedan or Hatchback, however, the 2022 Corolla Cross will have available AWD. That’s a first for the Corolla line since the 1992 Corolla Deluxe All-Trac wagon 30 years ago. 2022 Corolla Cross models with AWD are estimated to get 30-combined mpg. The standard FWD models are estimated at 32-combined mpg.

Connectivity Features

While we don’t know all of the things that the 2022 Corolla Cross comes equipped with, we do know a few of them. Here are the available features that have been confirmed so far:

  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • Amazon Alexa
  • SiriusXM satellite radio
  • 8-inch touchscreen
  • 2 USB ports
  • Premium 9-speaker JBL stereo system
  • 7-inch multi-information gauge display
  • Remote Connect functionality

While it has yet to be confirmed, it seems likely that the Corolla Cross will also get Bluetooth and a Wi-Fi hotspot somewhere in the lineup given how other Toyota vehicles are equipped. We may see GPS-linked navigation and HD Radio, too.
