2021 Toyota Corolla Cross debuts in Thailand

KUALA LUMPUR: Crossovers and SUVs are two popular segments with the highest sales figure, and therefore automakers are seen investing most time and money in these two areas. The trend seems to continue as Toyota has revealed the all-new Corolla Cross in Thailand. As the name suggests, the car is based on the automaker’s 54-year-old nameplate, the Corolla.

On the design front, the Corolla Cross looks nothing like its counterparts. Like the Yaris Cross, Toyota can give the Corolla crossover version a distinct look from its pears - the Altis, Corolla Hatchback, and Corolla wagon.
