Now that the new Toyota model is out, Modellista has once again worked its magic to deliver an even more distinctive finish to the design. The 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross Modellista is available in two packages, namely the Aero Parts Set and Cool Shine Kit.

The Aero Parts Set comes with a front spoiler or lip that creates a low stance finish. At the sides, it is equipped with side skirts, 18-inch alloy wheels, and body-colored wheel fenders. Lastly, the rear end is installed with rear spats that change color depending on the chosen body paint.

The local crossover segment is getting even more exciting as Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Philippines launched the all-new Corolla Cross. It is a five-seater crossover that’s available in two variants with a starting price of Php 1,285,000 for the gasoline-powered Corolla Cross while the Hybrid version is priced at Php 1,650,000. Designed as the stylish urban vehicle, the Corolla Cross combines Toyota’s signature “QDR” (quality, durability, and reliability) with style and functionality. Its hybrid electric variant further realizes Toyota’s vision of sustainable mobility and makes self-charging hybrid technology more accessible to Filipinos. The Toyota Corolla Cross was initially launched in Thailand and shared the same Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform with the 12th generation Toyota Corolla Altis. The new crossover is the same as the sedan it is based on that is available with a hybrid power plant.
