The exterior details of the two variants will also differ slightly.

- Pakistan will receive two variants of the vehicle.
- The starting price of the Corolla Cross will be Rs. 8.5 million.
The Toyota Corolla Cross will make its official entry into the Pakistani auto market next month. The car is reportedly being brought in from Thailand as a Complete Built-up Unit (CBU) as it has proven to be one of the hottest sellers in every market.
Toyota Indus Motor Company (IMC) recently revealed the car’s specs and features to let Pakistanis know what they are bracing for. Here is all you need to know about the upcoming Corolla Cross:
The car flaunts a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder hybrid petrol engine and an electric motor. The two combine to deliver 168 horsepower at 3600 RPM and 305 newton-meters of torque at 3600 RPM. All this power is sent to the front wheels via an eCVT automatic transmission.
Safety and Convenience
According to reports, Pakistan will receive two variants of the Corolla Cross. Both the variants will feature ABS, Hill Start Assist, parking sensors, passenger seat sensors, a panoramic sunroof, a shark fin antenna, a rear wiper with auto sensors, push start, smart entry, and multiple drive modes as the standard.
Talking about the differences, the finer variant will come loaded with seven airbags for the driver, passenger, sides, drive knee, and curtains, while the base-variant car will only have dual airbags. Lastly, the finer variant will feature adaptive cruise control and power + kick sensor trunk door, while the base variant will only have an electronically locking boot.
On the inside, the finer variant will have 8-inch touchscreen infotainment, leather seats, Dual-Zone Climate Control, and rear AC vents. On the other hand, the low-end variant will have fabric seats, a basic audio system with CD/BT, and Single-Zone Auto climate control, but no AC vents for the rear seats.
The exterior details of the two variants will also differ slightly. The finer version will showcase LED headlamps and DRLs, while the base variant will flaunt halogen headlights. It is possible that the two variants may also have different wheels.
The starting price of the Corolla Cross will be Rs. 8.5 million, which is more expensive than the larger and better-equipped Toyota Fortuner – a midsize, 7-seater SUV with a price tag of Rs. 7.7 million.
Considering that the Corolla Cross seems to be missing many basic SUV features, some speculate that the road ahead will be challenging for the vehicle. However, only time will tell whether the Corolla Cross will defy the odds and do well in the Pakistani auto market.
