The introduction of the all-new Yaris Cross gives Toyota an unmatched line-up of five hybrid electric SUV models, meeting the demands of everything from city streets to driving adventures with up to seven on board. And, of course, beyond the electrified portfolio, the 4×4 range also features the mighty Land Cruiser – the original Toyota off-roader with a heritage spanning 70 years.
Here’s a snapshot of the special qualities featured in each model.
Using the same GA-B platform as the award-winning Yaris hatchback, Yaris Cross brings together Toyota’s expertise in small car design and SUV engineering. It provides day-to-day practicality and easy manoeuvrability that are ideal for urban life while also fitting the bill for owners who want more than a small hatchback when heading off for the great outdoors.
Power is courtesy of the proven fourth generation Toyota hybrid electric system featured in the hatchback, giving brisk performance and generous all-electric EV mode driving capability.
It’s an authentic SUV, currently the only model in its class to offer the option of all-wheel drive –Toyota’s light and compact AWD-i intelligent system that uses an additional electric motor on the rear axle, so fuel and emissions efficiency isn’t adversely affected.
