2024 Toyota Yaris Cross: technology

The revised model introduces a completely new digital user experience. This includes new instrument displays that be configured and customised to suit the driver’s preference, and a new Toyota Smart Connect multimedia system that is more powerful, quicker to respond and offers a wider range of functions. The size of the displays are now class-leading: up to 12.3-inch for the driver’s combimeter and up to 10.5-inch for the multimedia touchscreen (both grade dependent).

In addition to wireless smartphone integration for both Apple and Android devices, a function of the new multimedia system is its ‘always connected’ cloud-based navigation, which uses up-to-the-moment information on routes, traffic and delays to offer optimal journey planning. The system also offers speech recognition through an on-board voice agent that can recognise and react to natural, conversational language and requests. For example, by saying, “Hey Toyota, I’m cold,” the system will automatically realise the need to raise the climate control temperature.

Convenience and security is enhanced with the availability of a new smart digital key (grade dependent). Linked to the MyToyota app, this digital key grants access to the vehicle through the user’s smartphone, and can be used to lock, unlock and start the vehicle without directly interacting with the phone. The app provides other useful functions, including remote locking/unlocking, pre-journey climate control operation, and activation of the hazard lights to help locate the vehicle, such as in a busy car park.

The revised car is also equipped with the latest generation of Toyota Safety Sense. The advanced features of this system – now with increased scope for detecting risks thanks to a new camera and radar set-up – are provided as standard throughout the 2024 Toyota Yaris Cross range. It is linked to a new data communications module that allows seamless, over-the-air software updates.

Protection is also offered when the car is stationary with the availability of a system that provides a visual and audible warning to help guard against a door being inadvertently opened into the path of approaching vehicles and cyclists.

2024 Toyota Yaris Cross: power and driving pleasure

The 2024 Toyota Yaris Cross joins its hatchback sibling in offering a second, more powerful version of its fifth-generation hybrid electric powertrain to further increase the model’s appeal.

This means that in addition to the established 1.5-litre full hybrid electric system, higher grade GR Sport and new Premiere Edition (see subheading below) models will be equipped with an upgraded system that features a new transaxle and a larger, more powerful motor-generator. Together with adjustments to the power control unit, output rises by 14% (from 114 to 130bhp), and maximum torque increases by 30% (141 to 185Nm). Acceleration from rest to 62mph is now reduced by half a second to 10.7 seconds, while emissions from the revised powertrain remain at a best-in-class 103-122g/km.

Statistics are only part of the story; equally significant is the impact the new powertrain has on the driving experience. It gives the 2024 Yaris Cross a more dynamic and responsive feel, with drive motor assistance also having been tuned to deliver a more linear relationship with accelerator input for faithful feedback.

Improvements have also been applied to how occupants are isolated from noise and vibrations through the powertrain. A dynamic damper has been added to the left-side engine mount; a resonator has been fitted to the intake hose; the inner dash silencer has been changed from a single layer to a three-layer construction; and an extra layer of felt has been added to the cowl top silencer. To combat wind and road noise, thicker glass is used across the windscreen and side windows.

The new Premiere Edition represents the halo model of the 2024 range. Among the body colour options is an exclusive new Urban Khaki bi-tone paint finish (below and lead images), which is paired with exclusive new 18-inch machine-finished five-spoke alloy wheels. Inside, upholstery stitching and deco lines on the instrument panel and doors coordinate with the green paintwork.

  4. Many buyers don’t want big wheels, flashy paintwork and complicated electronics – they do want a comfortable, quiet, gentle riding, easy to use, easy to drive, sensibly priced and reliable car, the last four of which Toyota have always done well. Perhaps as well as ‘sport’ related harder riding themes Toyota might consider ‘comfort’ softer riding themed grades?

  5. Hello,

    Will the new version of the Yaris Cross restore the option of a glass roof? I think the removal of this option puts a section of buyers off.

      Toyota UK

    1. Hi Alex,
      A letter has now been sent out to all Toyota Centres regarding the new 2024 Yaris Cross.
      This model will start from £25,500.
      Please let us know if you have any further questions.

  6. Due to the current state (3rd world) of roads in the UK.
    Would Toyota please add the option of air suspension to your vehicle range, please.

    I have the amazing air suspension feature on my reliable RX SUV vehicle, and when i occasionally drive my sons newer Yaris, the difference in suspension and pothole experience is worlds apart and bone jarring. There are customers that would definitely pay for for the Air Suspension feature, even if its an aftermarket mod advertised and available at your reasonably priced UK dealerships. Its a no brainer business win-win for everyone concerned!
    I remain keen to avoid the deutsch flash trash competition since i switched to your brand, and never looked back. Toyota exterior styling has picked up in past 5 years thankfully.
    thank you
