Numerous leaked images of the new Toyota Yaris Cross have surfaced online – this is only a few days after it was first revealed for the first time in its studio pictures.
The 2021 Toyota Yaris Cross is reinforced by the GA-B version of the TNGA platform and is related to the MK4 Toyota Yaris hatchback, which is sold mostly in the Asian market except in Southeast Asia.

In terms of dimensions, the new Yaris Cross spans 4,180 mm in length, 1,765 mm in width, and 1,560 mm in height – comparable with the Volkswagen T-Cross. Other exterior features include LED headlights, LED taillights, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The Toyota Yaris Cross will be offered with gasoline and hybrid variants. The ICE variants will use an M15A-FKS 1.5-liter direct-injection 3-cylinder gasoline engine that is capable of producing 118 hp and 145 Nm of torque.

On the other hand, the Yaris Cross hybrid variant will use an M15A-FXE 1.5-liter direct-injection 3-cylinder petrol engine combined with an electric motor producing a total power of 169 hp and 261 Nm of torque.
The gasoline engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT gearbox. The AWD version of the gasoline Yaris Cross is paired exclusively with the CVT option. Lastly, the hybrid variants, regardless of the drive type, are available with an e-CVT unit.
Inside, the Yaris Cross is installed with a 10-inch color head-up display, 40:20:40 split rear seats, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay, Android Auto compatibility, and a built-in navigation function.
We are hopeful to see this drive on Philippine highways one day
As of now, we have no reports on whether the Yaris Cross will be brought in the country. Although the Yaris Cross would be a great addition to the Toyota Philippine lineup since it is unlikely to be priced high in consideration to its leaked specs.
The Yaris Cross is said to be launched in Japan in late 2020 and enter the European market by 2021.
