By adopting the all-new hybrid system and the TNGA platform (GA-B) for compact cars, the 'Yaris Cross' offers a higher dimension of basic and environmental performance. Also, the vehicle achieves an easy-to-handle body size while providing SUV-like interior comfort and luggage room. The all-new Toyota Yaris Cross takes the origins of the Yaris city car and turns them into a high-riding crossover. It’s a well-worn formula, yet one Toyota hopes to. The Toyota Yaris Cross comes with a 116hp petrol hybrid engine that emits less than 90g/km of CO2 in front-wheel-drive models.

In Europe, the Yaris (a hatchback) is an entirely different story, and it got even more so after in early 2020 Toyota presented a new version of the model, this time tweaked by Gazoo Racing (GR), just like the Supra.
Later in the spring of 2020, Toyota threw another Yaris-badged vehicle into the mix, the Cross. It too is meant solely for the European market (it will likely not make it stateside), this time targeting the small SUV segment that is growing rapidly there.

2021 Yaris Crossover Suv
The Cross is 240 mm longer than its hatchback sibling for a total of 4,180 mm (60 mm added to the front overhang and 180 mm to the rear), is 1,765 mm wide (+20 mm) and 1,560 mm high (+90 mm). The car rides much higher than its sibling, by 30 mm.
Designed to be robust and minimalistic, the appearance of the Cross is inspired by the hatch, of course, but it is not at all the same. The front end looks a lot more tamed compared to its sibling, with the much smaller grille and smoother look of the bumper and hood making it appear more user-friendly.
The side look is pure crossover, with the special wheels surrounded by special cladding (also found at the front and rear). High up above the four doors (the GR has only two) there’s a black roof that contrasts the specially-created paint called Brass Gold.
The part of the Cross that looks more like the smaller Yaris is the rear, where the same sculpted and bulging lines (modified to suit the new dimensions) can be seen.
The Yaris Cross comes with a power back door and adjustable deck height. The deck can also be split into two, meaning it can be used to benefit either from an underfloor compartment or increased trunk space.
There is no official word on the materials used for interior surfaces at the time of this writing, but we are likely to see the same ones as on the regular Yaris.
The HVAC controls, located right under the center touchscreen (which will likely be at least Android Auto-compatible), still makes use of knobs, but the cockpit is otherwise digitized.
Just like the regular Yaris, the Cross makes use of a hybrid 1.5-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine that combined has been rated at 116 hp.
The Cross is offered both as a front-wheel-drive and a all-wheel-drive. Fuel consumption rating for the Cross in the former configuration has been measured at 120 g/km under WLTP, while for the latter the figure is 135g/km.

Toyota Yaris Suv
Toyota is already a major player on the continent, and has SUVs in most of the available classes. The Yaris Cross allows it to enter the B-segment, and there’s no mistaking the plans the carmaker has for the model: 150,000 of them are planned to be produced each year, accounting for 8 percent of the market.
