Toyota Yaris Cross, made for the urban



The Yaris Cross is all-new model that brings together Toyota’s rich experience and know-how in small car and SUV design and engineering, developed for Europe and specifically with European customers in mind from the initial concept phase.

It carries the key qualities of the new generation Yaris hatchback, the reigning Car of the Year in Europe: “Big-Small” packaging that maximises interior space and practicality, fourth-generation hybrid electric power, the highest safety standards with second-generation Toyota Safety Sense and a genuine Fun to Drive character.

Under the skin, the Yaris Cross is constructed on the GA-B small car platform part of the Toyota New Global Architecture philosophy, giving it the basic strengths that have been so successfully delivered in the Yaris hatchback.

The Hybrid Dynamic Force engine is quieter during acceleration and the engine’s maximum power and torque are achieved at lower engine speeds – 92 DIN hp/68 kW at 5,500 rpm and 120 Nm between 3,600 and 4,800 rpm.

In tuning the suspension, there was a focus on crisp cornering performance and enhanced line-tracing, whether driving around town or on the open road, with optimised inertia specifications and a reduced roll ratio that also contributes to overall ride comfort.

For Yaris Cross’ initial launch period, the Premiere Edition model extends the Adventure specification with a bi-tone exterior paint design, exclusive-design 18-inch bright machined alloys and a power back door with a kick sensor.

In addition, via the connected services smartphone application, owners can remotely control a number of features such as locking and unlocking the car, onboard climate controls (market dependent) and hazard lights which helps when searching for the car in crowded car parks.


DESIGN


  • “Easy, Fast, Smart” design concept for small car convenience and agility Exterior references Toyota’s SUV design cues Interior packaging provides versatile cabin and load space The design theme for the Yaris Cross was “Easy, Fast, Smart,” defined with the goal of creating a car that is an ideal partner for day-to-day activities.

  • At the same time, the design allows for an interior with plenty of comforts and generous load capacity, following the well-established Yaris “Big-Small” approach to packaging.

  • Larger-diameter wheels and tyres – up to 18-inch rims – add visual emphasis and also contribute to the car’s ability to tackle different driving conditions.

  • The rear is defined by the wide tailgate and a square central section that expresses the car’s functionality, framed by the wide rear haunches and C-shaped character lines cut into the lower corners.

  • From Mid+ grade, all the rear lights use LED technology and offer sequential turn indicators.

  • According to model grade, Yaris Cross offers 16-inch silver alloys, 17 and 18-inch bright machined or dark grey painted alloys or 18-inch machined alloys with black paint.



Interior


  • The Yaris Cross’ interior design carries forward the modern, quality appearance of the hatchback while focusing on a “fast access” theme that prioritises day-to-day convenience.

  • There are new treatments for elements such as the front pillars, sills and centre console, and new trim finishes for the door panels and armrests.

  • The centre console gains prominence, reflecting the car’s SUV status, forming a strong vertical feature that flows down from the multimedia display to the shift lever and incorporates the heating and ventilation controls.

  • Driving function controls, including the Drive Mode Select and (where specified) all-wheel-drive mode switches, are grouped immediately in front of the shift lever.

  • The optimised higher driving position gives the driver good visibility expected of an SUV, with a seat and steering wheel design that delivers both comfort and a strong sense of connection and command of the vehicle.
