Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) has announced that it will be manufacturing and selling the brand-new Corolla Cross in South Africa in 2021. Based on the acclaimed new Corolla TNGA platform, the Corolla Cross will be built on Toyota South Africa’s Durban passenger car production line alongside the Corolla Quest.
This new passenger vehicle represents a significant milestone for Toyota South Africa, as it is the very first time that the plenty will be manufacturing a Hybrid model. While the Corolla Cross shares the same TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) C platform with its namesake Corolla, it boasts a higher ground clearance and other attributes normally associated with an SUV.
According to Toyota SA, the new compact SUV passenger vehicle offers an exceptional balance between drivability, roominess, comfort and high-tech features. The SUV promises to combine everything consumers love about Corolla with the utilitarian and rugged aesthetics of a segment-leading SUV.
Look out for the new Corolla Cross hitting South Afircan roads in the fourth quarter of this year.
