All-new Yaris Cross: pricing and equipment

Introducing the new Toyota Yaris Cross compact SUV. The urban sprawl. It’s the context in which modern motorists increasingly appreciate the robust, high-riding qualities of an SUV. But this class of vehicle is often too large and unwieldy for the city, and neither as economical or environmentally efficient as many road-users would prefer.

Yaris Cross Hybrid - 2021

It is into this familiar scenario that Toyota launches the all-new Yaris Cross compact SUV. It is a vehicle that combines our small car expertise and all-wheel drive heritage in one robust model specifically tailored to handle the rough and tumble of urban life, allied to a genuine emphasis on environmental performance.

Toyota Yaris Cross: true hybrid, true SUV

The Yaris Cross benefits from our fourth-generation hybrid powertrain technology. The Yaris Hybrid of 2012 was the first supermini with a full hybrid system, and since then more than half a million have been sold in Europe. Our unmatched experience and ongoing development of this technology ensures that the latest powertrain in the new Yaris Cross delivers exceptional performance and efficiency.

The new 1.5-litre, three-cylinder Atkinson cycle petrol engine in the Yaris Cross is developed directly from the larger 2.0- and 2.5-litre powertrains used in the latest Corolla, Toyota C-HR, RAV4 and Camry. It offers a remarkable thermal efficiency of 40% and a maximum output of 114bhp, the result of which is responsive performance with high torque at low engine speeds and excellent fuel efficiency. Provisional WLTP emissions data suggests that the front-wheel drive model will start from below 120g/km of CO2 and the AWD-i version from below 135g/km.

As part of the next-generation Yaris family (as above, between GR Yaris and Yaris hatchback), the Yaris Cross shares the model’s new GA-B compact car platform. This ensures a high level of body rigidity and a well-balanced chassis, making the car responsive and agile. It also shares the big-small design and packaging concept that has characterised every Yaris model since 1999, presenting a roomy interior within compact exterior dimensions that make it highly suited to urban driving.

Special attention was paid to the new model’s practicality and versatility. Details include a powered rear hatch and a height-adjustable luggage deck, giving the flexibility of either a secure underfloor compartment or more space to carry larger items. The deck board itself can be divided in two and the luggage compartment has a new flexible belt system to keep items secure when driving.

Yaris Cross is also a genuine SUV, featuring a raised ride height, larger wheel and tyre combination, and the availability of intelligent all-wheel drive to reinforce its credentials. It benefits from our experience in originating the concept of the recreational SUV 25 years ago with the RAV4 – currently the world’s best-selling SUV – and more recently in producing the stylish and highly efficient Toyota C-HR. Indeed, arrival of the Yaris Cross will give Toyota an SUV range that spans the B, C and D segments.

The rear drive system is electric and therefore lighter and more compact than traditional mechanical alternatives. In normal driving, the Yaris Cross operates with front-wheel drive, but when low-grip conditions are detected, all-wheel drive is engaged automatically. The system also directs drive torque to the rear axle when pulling away and accelerating.

In terms of size, the Yaris Cross shares its 2,560mm wheelbase with the new Yaris hatchback but is 240mm longer overall, with 60mm added to the front and 180mm to the rear, securing more interior space. The ground clearance is 30mm higher and the vehicle is wider and taller overall – by 20 and 90mm respectively.

  1. We are looking at purchasing a yaris crossover but have been informed that not all models are now available. Please advise what ranges there are now with prices please. Thank you

  2. Yaris cross excel on order due September/October 2022 i was told by my local dealer that any extras i order would push my delivery to 2023 ? I thought when the car goes into production it would built to my specification ?

    1. Hi Philip,

      Thanks for your order. Optional extras can impact the vehicle delivery time, that is correct. A build slot for a vehicle like this may be available later than a build slot for a vehicle without extras.


    1. Hi Mike,

      Yes, that’s correct. Yaris Cross Dynamic is sold out. We’ll have more information on a potential replacement in due course.


    1. Hi Dee,

      The Excel grade gets built in satellite navigation. Icon and Design grades get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which enable you to use map apps from your mobile device and mirror them on the media screen.


  3. I have purchased a Yaris Cross dynamic can you tell me with regards to breakdown cover do you no longer get any contact details you used to get a plastic fob to attach to your keys

  4. We have just ordered an Excel with the standard white paint finish. In the specification, it states the roof lining is grey and the seats are part leather, but what colour are the seats for this model?

  5. I took delivery of my Dynamic AWD last month. It is really disappointing to now see how poorly the AWD system performs compared to it’s nearest rival in a roller traction test. It would seem that the weak rear motor is rather ineffectual when traction is lost to the front wheels.

    1. Hi Leigh,
      We are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with this.
      If there is anything else we can do to assist you at this time, please let us know.

      1. Thanks for the reply. Perhaps the AWD-i system needs a software update? I’d really expect it to perform better in these tests. Trail mode is supposed to minimise wheel spin and keep the car moving forward in tricky conditions.

      2. Hi Leigh,
        Thank you for taking your time to provide us with this feedback.
        Ultimately, the Yaris Cross is not a specialised off-road vehicle like Hilux or Land Cruiser.
        For a vehicle of this type, the AWD-i system provides ample performance in real world conditions, especially when coupled with winter tyres.
        Are you planning on doing much off-roading in your Yaris Cross?

      3. I don’t plan to do hardcore off-roading. My likely use will be unmade “trail” roads and highland roads with snow and ice. Hence buying an AWD SUV with these drive modes. I guess I will have to wait to see how it performs in the winter. I would certainly have more confidence in it’s all-wheel drive capability if it could pass the roller tests. For example, the hybrid RAV4, with a similar electric AWD-i system still moves forward in these roller tests.

      4. Hi Leigh,
        Honestly, tyres can make a huge difference to how a vehicle performs in low grip conditions.
        In the unofficial test video you have shared, it doesn’t state which tyres are fitted, and as it is in a different market, we’re not able to confirm which tyres are fitted.
        In the UK, Yaris comes with one of two sets of tyres, either Falken ZE310AECORUN or Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance, which have a higher rating in low grip conditions.
        As mentioned in our last comment though, if you are going to be driving in icy conditions, winter tyres will make a massive difference and we can’t recommend them enough.

      5. I have been researching different tyre options. The factory fitted Goodyear’s mine came with are classed as a summer touring tyre. It would be nice if the Toyota offered some different options when building your desired spec. There are some well regarded all season tyres which offer improved winter performance without impacting efficiency or road noise. I don’t believe tyres would make a difference in the roller test though. Whilst the rollers simulate loss of grip, the tyre is not actually slipping. The AWD system needs to direct need sufficient power to the wheels with road contact in order to move forward.

  6. Morning, my excel yaris cross ordered in Feb was due for delivery July 6th but was not to be. Anyway I have just received an update that it has now entered build which is good news. How long is there approx between build and delivery please.

    1. Hi Dave,
      Thanks for your order.
      Please contact your Toyota Centre for updates on the progress of your order.

  7. Yaris Cross Premiere Edition AWD delivered mid-May and had a super holiday trip to the Thames Valley – apart from the Sat Nav. I can’t find how to set a route “avoiding Motorways” – can only find avoiding dual-carriageways – obviously not bothered about them just Motorways – is there a way to include this in my settings. Otherwise the Yaris Cross is superb to drive and we both really love it – almost 1,000 miles already

    1. Hi Sue,
      Thanks for your comment.
      We are glad to hear that you are loving your new Yaris Cross!
      Once you have set a destination and begun navigating, tap the ‘no entry’ icon on the side of the screen where you can access avoidance criteria, including motorways.
      If you go to Page 88 of your Navigation Manual, in the section ‘Destination Search’, you will find further instructions on how to operate the system.
      You can access your Navigation Manual here –

      1. Sadly that isn’t the version of Sat Nav I have – we went for the smaller screen if that’s the reason.
        My system is to be found in download OMYPT61 – which is very breif and basically no help at all.
        Is it possibly to change it to another system
