Yaris Cross extends hybrid-electric SUV line-up

9 The new Toyota Yaris Cross compact SUV

The Yaris Cross is the latest addition to Toyota's line-up of hybrid electric SUV models.

The B-segment crossover uses the same GA-B platform as the Yaris hatchback and has a 1.5-litre hybrid electric powertrain, with power outputs of 114bhp and 85kW.

It has a maximum speed of 106mph and 0-62mph acceleration in 11.2 seconds (2WD)/11.8 (AWD-i).

The Yaris Cross has fuel economy of (mpg, WLT combined) 54.3-64.1 (2WD)/55.3 (AWD-i) CO2 emissions (g/km, WLTP combined) 100 – 117.2 (2WD)/115 – 116 (AWD-i) and load space capacity 397 – 460 litres (2WD)/320 – 401 (AWD-i).

Destined to boost Toyota dealers sales, the car joins the line up of five hybrid electric SUV models, including the C-HR and RAV4.

Toyota is expanding its Corolla production in Burnaston with a new hybrid commercial van version that will launch in summer 2022.

Toyota has revealed that it plans to cut its global vehicle production by 40% in September because of the impact of COVID-triggered semiconductor shortages.
