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. I notice cruise control is not mentioned in the spec on any model grade, is this just an ommision on spec , or not actually not fitted ? Also wondered why the Dynamic FWD is nearly £300 cheaper than the Excell Fwd ? PS love the gold paintwork !

    1. Hi Roy,

      Thanks for your interest in the Yaris Cross. All grades come with full adaptive cruise control as standard.

      The Dynamic grade is more about visual appeal, whereas the Excel grade has a bit more equipment, like blind sport monitoring, Intelligent Front parking sensors with clearance
      sonar & automatic braking, Intelligent Rear parking sensors with clearance sonar & automatic braking and Rear Cross Traffic Alert with Brake Assist (RCTA-B).

      Your nearest Toyota centre should either have their demonstrator now, or be getting it very soon. Please contact them so you can get booked in to take a closer look!


      1. Do Toyota not think customers would like an option. I know several people besides myself that are put off buying all black interiors. Audi seem to love them.

      2. Hi there,
        Thank you for your comment.
        We have passed on your feedback to our wider Product Team.

    1. Hi,

      Demonstrators are rolling out across the network as we speak. Your nearest centre will have one, or is due to get it very soon. We recommend getting in touch with them to find out.


    1. Hi David,
      Thanks for your comment.
      The Yaris Cross isn’t fitted with an alarm. It is fitted with a Thatcham Approved Category 2 Immobiliser.

    1. Hi Tim,
      Thanks for your comment.
      The boot capacity up to the parcel shelf is 350 litres.
      Including under the deck board, the boot capacity is 397 litres.

  2. Do you have any further details on the differences, if any, of the interior finishing (seats in particular) between the excel and dynamic. And are there any pictures that show the interior? The demos that are arriving seem to be Premiere which is not much use !

    1. Hi there,

  3. We placed a pre order for a Dynamic Cross on 5th May and, to date, have not heard re a test drive etc. I contacted our dealer very recently who stated they were waiting on a demonstrator being delivered, which I understand the roll out of these is underway. Just wondering what (if any) difference pre ordering makes to orders, so far we can’t see how it’s been of any benefit.

      1. Thanks for your reply, so once test driven the pre orders are given priority for delivery – great news!

      Congratulations on your new Yaris Cross! What colour did you opt for?

  4. The width of the Yaris Cross is only given without mirrors. As I only drive the car with my mirrors fitted, can you tell me the overall with, including mirrors, so that I van know whether it will go into my garage?
