The Yaris will soon give birth to a big brother. The Toyota Yaris Cross, that’s its name, is similar to an urban SUV, soon to be assembled in France.

(Updated on 04/23/2020 at 12:41 p.m.) New Toyota Yaris Cross (2021) – Initially planned at the Geneva Motor Show, the city SUV finally reveals itself at the end of April. Closely derived from new Yaris, it takes its name and even the factory, since it will made in Valenciennes in some months.

Big outside, small inside?

While the Toyota Yaris is compelled to remain below 4 meters long, its backpacker derivative extends over 4.18 m. A template ideally located between the small Volkswagen T-Cross (4.11 m) and the Renault Captur (4.23 m). From his little sister, the newcomer does not inherit any bodywork element, in favor of a line that we will consider to be more successful. But the platform is identical, since it is an extrapolation of the GA-B base, particularly optimized in terms of compactness, while ensuring first-class habitability. However, we are surprised that the wheelbase measurement has not undergone any change compared to that of the Yaris, only 3.94 m long. This Cross variant should not excel at accommodating rear passengers. Hopefully it will catch up on the trunk volume side, although this measure remains secret for the moment.

116 hp hybrids

Under her dress, the Toyota Yaris Cross takes over the fourth generation hybrid system inaugurated a few months ago by the Yaris 4. It is a 1.5 l petrol backed by an electric block which allows him to cumulate 116 hp. This non-rechargeable powertrain has the distinction of being coupled to a all-wheel drive, optional. And this via the addition of an additional electric motorization on the rear axle. Toyota does not indicate whether this addition will result in an increase in total power. Anyway, this 4×4 version announces 10 g of additional CO2 emissions per kilometer (100 g), compared to simple traction.

Toyota Yaris Cross Award

The marketing of the new Toyota Yaris Cross will take place mid-2021, after starting production at the end of the year. The Japanese firm intends to assemble more than 150,000 copies of its new baby each year on the French site. On the price side, this exclusively hybrid model for France should claim between 25 and 28,000 euros on a base basis.
