The all-new 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross small SUV, which is based on the popular Corolla, has been generating a lot of interest since its debut earlier this year. How could it not? It’s roomier and more powerful than the low-selling C-HR, yet cheaper than the popular RAV4.
We already know pretty much everything about this model, set to go on sale at Canadian dealers this month. Today the company announced the final missing piece of information: pricing.

Around $1,000 above the C-HR, the base Corolla Cross L starts at $24,890 (plus destination) in FWD configuration. Add an extra $1,400 for the AWD option, which bumps the price to $26,290. Standard equipment includes 17-inch steel wheels, LED headlights and taillights, 7-inch multimedia display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, 4.2-inch colour instrument display and heated front seats.
Next up is the Corolla Cross LE, which also offers FWD and AWD models priced at $27,090 and $28,490, respectively. It gets 17-inch alloy wheels, 8-inch multimedia display, leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, Smart Key with push-button start, cargo cover, anti-theft alarm, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
An LE Premium package sits at $30,590. Offered with standard AWD, this model stands out with roof rails, power sunroof, wireless smartphone charging and Toyota Connected Services allowing remote assistance, control and monitoring of the vehicle.
Finally, the top-line Corolla Cross XLE is available from $33,990, also with standard AWD. Some of the exclusive features here include 18-inch alloys, power liftgate, 9-speaker JBL audio system, 7-inch colour instrument display, ambient interior lighting and synthetic leather-appointed seats with power adjustments for the driver.
All Corolla Cross models benefit from Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, a bundle of active safety technologies that includes Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection, Automatic High Beams, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian and Bicycle Detection, Lane Tracing Assist, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
What’s more, customers have a choice of seven body colours: Wind Chill Pearl, Barcelona Red Metallic, Blue Crush Metallic, Jet Black Mica, Celestite, Cypress (pictured above) and Sonic Silver Metallic.
Motivation for the Corolla Cross comes from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 169 horsepower via a continuously variable transmission. Combined fuel consumption is 7.3-7.8 L/100 km depending on the drivetrain. As previously reported, a hybrid variant will be added next year, likely as a 2023 model.
