    Toyota Corolla Cross facelift: what’s new?

    The mid-life update for the Corolla Cross gets styling tweaks that bring the model more in line with other Toyota SUVs sold globally. The facelift comes nearly four years after the SUV’s debut and brings in a redesigned grille with a distinctive honeycomb pattern, which is unique for Toyota models. The front bumper gets design tweaks too and the headlights have been reprofiled as well, replete with sequential turn signals. A new trim piece connects the Toyota logo in the centre with the updated headlamp design.

    On the inside, it gets a digital cockpit setup now with a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 10.1-inch infotainment screen. It also gets a new panoramic sunroof with a frameless design coupled with an electric sun shade. An updated Toyota Safety Sense ADAS suite and a few minor tweaks to the interior complete the list of upgrades on the Corolla Cross facelift.

    The facelift does not see any updates to the powertrains on offer. A naturally aspirated 138hp, 1.8-litre petrol with a CVT automatic or a 1.8-litre petrol-hybrid is on offer that churns out a combined 121hp mated to an e-CVT gearbox.  

    Toyota Corolla Cross India launch shelved

    The Corolla Cross SUV, which is internally known as Toyota C SUV, was actively considered by the carmaker to be a new made-in-India product for domestic and export markets. Toyota had announced that this new SUV will roll out from the brand’s third facility in Karnataka. However, sources say that the project – codenamed 340 D – planned for June 2026 with a potential annual volume of 75,000 units did not meet the technical commercial viability and hence the company has decided to shelve the plans.

    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
