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 really think you need to be clearer on this point. The thousand of people with cars who need to leave them in – for short periods and never in Summer obviously – really need a better answer than this. Both my Skoda Yeti and Mini Countryman have a special way to lock the car so that if the dog moves/turns around (and I have a big Pointer) they do not set off the alarm which is very scary for most dogs. Surely there must be a way to lock the Yaris Cross without the alarm – if not then after waiting so long the order will most likely be cancelled. Your answers need to be clearer.

      2. This is vety odd as my older Auris has an interior alarm disablement. This is also a must if travelling on a Ferry.

  1. Hi I’ve ordered the excel version due for delivery July. I have seen pics of cycles being carried in the rear of the vehicle with the seats down. How is this achieved , that is how are the bikes secured and can two cycles be carried in the back.

    1. Hi Dave,
      Thanks for your comment.
      There is no specific Toyota accessory for this.
      We apologise that we cannot assist you further.

      1. Not sure you answered my question here. Can two cycles be accommodated in the rear of the vehicle? Also how are the bikes secured to the anchor points , is it using the seat belts or maybe bungee chords ? If you don’t know just say you don’t know I won’t think bad of you.

      2. Hi Dave,
        This will depend on the size of the bicycles.
        But unfortunately, we do not have any further information on how these are secured.

  2. I have recently purchased the Design option and are very impressed. Is it possible to upgrade the multi media option to include satellite navigation. If the answer is yes how much is the cost. Regards Geoff

    1. Hi Geoff,
      We are pleased to hear that you are pleased with your Yaris Cross.
      Unfortunately, this upgrade is not possible.

  3. I have an AWD Yaris Cross on order – delivery March/April – along with a compact spare tyre to be fitted by dealer can you confirm that this will fit in the boot.
    Also I have 2 dogs your answer about the alarm system was a concern. Can the car be locked without the alarm on at all as with our mini Countryman

    1. Hi Sue,
      Thanks for your comment.
      A space saver spare wheel can be fitted to the Yaris Cross if desired. It should be fitted by your Toyota Centre to ensure correct fitting.
      Furthermore, unfortunately the car cannot be locked without the alarm system enabled.
      We hope this helps.

      1. Thanks for the reply -But just to be sure does the space saver tyre comment apply to the All Wheel Drive version that we have on order

      2. Hi Sue,
        Thanks for your comment.
        Our technical team have advised that you double check this with your parts department at your Toyota Centre.
        We hope this helps.

  4. Can you tell me if the Yaris Cross Excel is available in the bi -tone paint combination either prepubescent red or white with black roof?

    1. Hi Julian, thanks for your comment.

      The Excel grade of the Yaris Cross is not available with the bi-tone colouring. This option is unique to the Dynamic grade.


    1. Hi Jill,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Advanced Parking Assist does not come as standard on the Yaris Cross Excel, it is available in the City Pack.

  5. Hi Toyota I have ordered the yaris Cross premier, now at build stage 😀, does it come with locking wheel nut? .Also how much is a skinny Toyota spare wheel to suit. Thanks

    1. Hi Dave,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Our Product Team have advised that your Yaris Cross comes with a locking wheel nut.
      Furthermore, your Toyota Centre would be best placed to advise on the pricing of a spare wheel.

  6. I picked up my Yaris cross premier edition today and my first question was how to stop the dogs setting off the alarm while I’m paying for petrol etc. I was told that the car doesn’t have any internal sensors, so the car can be locked and the dogs will be safe and won’t set the alarm off.

  7. Really pleased with Yaris Cross Premier …. only surprise is that there is no rear interior light. Very dark with black head lining. Might be a consideration for upgrades

    1. Hi Clare,
      Thanks for your comment, we are pleased to hear you are happy with your Yaris Cross.
      We also thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback, we will pass this onto our wider product team.

  8. Hi, is it correct that Toyota are no longer producing the Premiere and Dynamic editions please? I wanted to place an order for a Premiere edition for September but have been told by the lease company that Toyota GB have recently advised they have now stopped production of those models. Thanks

    1. Hi Amanda,
      Thanks for your comment.
      The Yaris Cross Premiere Edition was a launch edition, only available for a limited time.
      The Yaris Cross Dynamic is still available to order, just the Yaris Cross Dynamic with City Pack has been discontinued.
