Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport coming to Malaysia; here’s what to expect

Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport coming to Malaysia; here’s what to expect

UMW Toyota Motor seems to have big plans for 2023, as the automaker is most likely to include the Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport in its local lineup. The sportier version of the ongoing Corolla Cross would be a great addition and surely be a welcomed addition to the range.

Though we are still waiting for an official announcement from the automaker, an advertisement posted on a car-selling website indicates the soon arrival of the Corolla Cross GR Sport variant. The said listing hint towards the arrival of a Hybrid trim and misses out on the conventional 1.8L petrol option completely.

Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport coming soon

Here in Malaysia, Toyota already offers the Corolla Cross Hybrid model for RM 142,000; thus indicating the GR Sport hybrid version of the Corolla Cross costs a little bit more than that, maybe around RM 150k.

The Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport hybrid version is already on sale in Thailand and we feel the upcoming local-spec version might match many of its specifications. Though the actual specs and pricing will be revealed with the car’s launch, there's no harm in taking all the hints we can get.
