Is the ALL NEW 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross the BEST small SUV to buy?

Joylandi 3-Iyn, 2021
The FIRST ever Corolla Cross is here and Toyota wants to bring their Corolla sedan magic into a SUV. On the outside you will find a large functional grill, LED lighting, optional 18in wheels, and roof rails. On the inside you will be greeted by the familiar sights of the Corollla sedan. Under the hood is the tried and true 2.0L inline-4 that produces 169HP \u0026 mated to a CVT. Is the ALL NEW 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross the BEST small SUV to buy?

  • I'm a Honda guy but actually like the look of this

  • Great review, convinced me it's not for me.

  • wow. all-time amazing review. 10/10

  • Where's the "real bumper"? Stupid Ugly Vehicles are nothing more than a profit padding scheme that has been sold to those who are either insecure or questionably competent in their driving skills.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts and input!

  • oh my god this car is so ugly I dont get why they did this

  • CVT 👎🏼

  • They should’ve brought the matrix name back for this

  • Toyota cars are getting uglier and uglier

  • Corolla is all grown up 🥲

  • Can't wait to see the new Mazda Cx5 review

  • I work for Toyota and we can't keep the Rav 4 on the lot. Camry use to be the best seller but the Rav have blown it away. Can't wait to see how this will sell

  • That is a neat car . Just the right size.

  • Taller car is needed as i don't like normal cars hitting or touching the roadside kerb as i have done many times. I will not buy any sports cars bullshit.

  • I want to see an SE, XSE, SR5, and TRD versions of the Corolla cross.

  • Is it v4 or v6 ?

  • Why does this exist? Like seriously the CH-R and this thing are almost the same size? Why keep building both of them. Kill the CH-R and just replace it with this. I get it crossovers sell I don't hate them hell I own one. But this insane vehicle for every mark on a ruler mentality is nuts. Also WTF did people just look at Mitsubishi and their "Eclipse Cross" and say..."Yeah that's a good idea. Turn an iconic name into a lifeless sub-compact midsized lifeless crossover for active lifestyle singles with a family ranging from ages 18-54.5 years old!"

  • Delivering the iconic Corolla name in a SUV foemat was a good idea. That CVT is going to soul the plan tho.

  • Actually for this class suv. The upper dash made of hard plastic is necessary to be more sun durable, it wont crack or vanish the color.

  • Is it shorter then the rav 4?

  • I really like this Toyota Corolla Cross. I like this SUV. It is a new model.

  • I was just looking at the Toyota website this car is amazing in style. I think this car is going to sell very well, just with 2 key points the styles and colors along with the pricing what is the pricing going to be all about hit the right price and expect a blockbuster sale with this little car.

  • what a surprise,,,Corolla SUV what the heck wowwwwwwww! it is a budget friendly for people not interest to the RAV4 nor Highlander!!! Awesome work Toyota!! Honda is slack behind for sure of the SUV lines!

  • As soon as I heard “CVT transmission”, I stopped watching the video. Toyota Corolla is coming off my list permanently. No disposable transmissions for me!

  • Joe, do Toyota Cross in US hybrid? Toyota first launched in Thailand and it is hybrid.

  • Joe this or a Taos?

  • It's pretty interesting for sure. All depends on price as needing a 3rd kids car but being tall and over 50 gettingi in/out of the small cars is a pain for me. Hoping maybe this one is a bit higher up (would expect it to be).

  • hi, one question , please - what is the size of the back part of the car?

  • Not impressed! They need to spend more money in design

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one!

  • Sooo No Stick? Sadness

  • Good lord, that front end. How much pot do they smoke in Japan?

  • im off roading this thing

  • how about reviewing some of the cheaper version of these cars... if I'm looking at this type vehicle, I'm probably looking at the basic or possibly mid version.... very rarely to never would we consider these optional junk laden models... review the BASIC trim please for the majority of us.

  • CVT transmission!! Really sucks, Nissan moving away from CVT other companies embracing it.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one!

  • 1.8 would have been better

  • Man this car is PERFECT

  • sick of these obnoxious grills

  • No 12v charging outlet WTF

  • Guac is the best part!! Don't disappoint me, Joe!!

  • The tail light reminds me of a first gen Toyota Sienna. Not a bad thing though.

  • I DISAGREE. ITS HYUNDAI THAT IS BRINGING THE BEST LINE UP. I AM STICKING TO MY PLAN TO BUY 2022 HYUNDAI P

  • I'm a Toyota girl and mama likes what she sees but I'm gonna need then to go ahead and add back that driver seat pocket please!!!! One on now! Lol

  • Is this on a new platform or an existing?

  • When highlander and rav4 spend the night together 😂😂😂

  • Why does Toyota continuously try to reinvent the RAV4? Corolla Cross? BZ4Z? It all looks very similar if not the same. Maybe this is for a different generation. Toyota could've use different trims on the RAV4 instead of reinventing the same car over and over. Like a broken record player.

    • Thanks for sharing your great input and perspective on this one.

  • Corolla was around since 1966.

    • @Raiti's Rides First sold in the USA in 1968.

    • @Raiti's Rides Corollas were in the USA prior to '73.

    • They were not selling cars in the USA though.

  • The Toyota Cross should be available with a hybrid just like the Asian version! Why no hybrid? You have a hybrid Corolla, RAV4, Highlander. Come on Toyota you’re missing the boat !

    • Thanks for sharing your great input and perspective on this one.

  • its the perfect size , but i wish they had a bigger engine & better tranny , looks like hyundai wins again ,, too bad

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • Can’t wait for the 4Runner coupe cabrio spider EV, to race my neighbor’s electric Hummer.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • The Corolla Cross is so popular in Taiwan. There have been 17,618 cars running all over the street. This car has successfully monopolized the small SUV market in Taiwan. This car that is not even sold by the Japanese original car before, and now it is decided to enter the market. The United States, but unlike the United States, the Taiwan version has a 1.8 gasoline-eletric hybrid engine! This car was banned as a ''sacred car'' in Taiwan, making other brands quite fearful! Breaking Taiwan's sales record for domestically produced cars in the past 20 years!

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • Will the dash melt!??

  • this car is already on the roads of my country since last year and I have watch all the local reviews but I still see and enjoy your review anyway 😄

  • I like the Toyota Corolla Cross better than the CHR - it’s not over-styled like the CHR, it’s available with a sunroof (the CHR is not), and it has more cargo volume partly because of its more upright rear end. The only downside is, like the usual Toyota, it’s a bit too plain for my taste. However, no vehicle is perfect so I would consider buying it, as well as the Ford Bronco Sport, 2022 Ford Maverick, the 2021/2022 Hyundai Tucson, and maybe the 2022 Kia Sportage.

  • Here in the Philippines we have a hybrid of the Corolla Cross.

  • There is something wrong with designers at Toyota/Lexus! For some reason, they seem to think that the grills on their vehicles need to be excessively large, ugly and cheap looking! I've had Toyota/Lexus vehicles for years and have noticed a gradual lean towards UGLY. Great quality and reliability but no looks.

  • Does this sit as high/low as the 61" height of the CH-R? Anything higher and I get nervous driving it. PS: always enjoy your food analogies. 🍪🍩🍬🍭🍫🥤🌯

  • It looks better than the Rav 4!

  • Does ur come in hybrid ?

  • Thanks, now I have an idea of car I want to trade in my Toyota Prius V next year.

  • Raiti - could u pls include legroom in your reviews, especially from the driver's seat...I am 6' 3" and have found oddly over the years that some compacts offer great legroom

  • Will it be available with Navi?

  • Nope, new model is never the best to buy.

  • Another great review!

  • It is beautiful!! I'm waiting for it! Welcome to Quebec!

  • Nice, how much smaller is it than the RAV and how much cheaper?

  • It is AWD ?

  • Man ! Toyota is all " milking " suvs or crossovers . . . just like ford with all those trucks . . . 🤦‍♂️

  • I appreciate your attention to design details! I have heard that the Corolla sedan has a flimsy ride on highways, so I’m hoping the Cross has a more substantial highway ride to it.

  • I'm waiting for the Avalon crossover.

  • I like it…

  • Manual transmission, AWD with center locking diff, and higher ground clearance, 1st gen Rav4 born again , perfect rally rig

  • Cost?

  • The Corolla Cross makes sense for many people. I’ve enjoyed driving a Crosstrek and I wonder if the Toyota will eat into Subaru’s dominance in the AWD market. The Corolla may occasionally be expected to go off the beaten path, in which case I hope in the future Toyota offers a TRD package with a more stain resistant interior color scheme.

    • @Raiti's Rides thank you for the great content. I’m not a big fan of Twinkie’s but your channel almost makes me want to fill my center console full of em.

    • Thanks for sharing that great input and perspective! I appreciate that!

  • Design review only. I expected on the road driving review.

  • That front end view is beautiful!👀👀🍺🍺

  • Toyota’s exterior always turns me on but it’s interior always turn me off.

  • Love iiit!

  • This will sell like hot cakes! great review. Is CVT on all trims? Major Zonk

  • I dont like the two tone seats...

  • hybrid model available ?

  • He could sell mash potatoes to a potato farmers always spot on ,Great review o. Vehicles as always

  • Will there be corolla cross hybrid?

  • We don't need another cross over 🙄😒😂

  • Yet another ugly front end brought to you by Toyota.

  • How much

  • Love it! How does it ride? Is it a smooth ride?

  • Fantastic review, I can see this vehicle selling like hot cakes…

  • No test drive? It is difficult to review a car if you cannot test drive it. You pretty much would not buy the car unless you can test drive it first and have an idea of how it drives, the engine performs, transmission performs and the cost to own it. I would not want a CVT transmission (ever), had one and hated it, or turbo charger which will ultimately wear the engine out. The CVT transmissions can be problematic and along with turbochargers are not known for longevity. Toyota infotainment has always lagged behind the competitors with innovation,. I would like to see the magic you are talking about with this car that I am guessing could match the functionality of any car within it's class. I would be very interested as to how much this corolla would cost, for each of the trim levels available. Why not test drive it?

  • It looks like they r playing 3 card monty with Mazda (with whom Toyota had/has a collaborative relationship with). This screams Mazda CX3 - just sayin

  • Better looking than the RAV4

  • As soon as he said “cvt” i stopped watching

  • This guy is the reason i bought my 21 rav and venza. Thanks Joe

  • I believe the CH-R and the Corolla Cross should be listed as CUV's, Compact Utility Vehicles!

  • What’s the difference between this and the rav4?

  • I like my rav4, wouldn’t go for this. I like the feel of the rav4. Feels more like a suv then others to me.

    • @Alvin Simba That’s true I didn’t even think of that..

    • @ZEROKOOL-20 its mostly baby boomers buying these CUV. That CVT engine size with the body im not sure.. for a sedan and the hatchback it's perfectly fine but with this Cross hmm..

    • @Alvin Simba Yeah and is more space, more power. So anyone buying a Corolla would go for this. Let’s see.

    • I wonder what will happen to corolla sedan sales now with this being introduced

  • I wish they brought the Corolla Touring Wagon to the US instead. It combines the practical cargo space of the Cross with the driving feel of the hatch!

  • came for the zonks, stayed for the deadpan food storage remarks. Love these reviews! everything you want to see and hear & nothing you don't!

  • Rear lights could be better...looks like many other rear lights.

  • Is This Corolla coming to Australia .We don't even have the Toyota Yazi or Avgo yet . Toyota Australia complaining there expensive for Australia .😆

  • Eclipse is a way better option than this

  • bet the 2022 Tundra will share similiar front end
