The popular Corolla Cross has received a mid-life facelift, bringing fresh styling and more features to the table. However, Indian fans hoping for a local launch will be disappointed as Toyota has shelved plans for the C-SUV in the country.

What’s New?

  • Sharper Looks: The facelift features a redesigned grille with a unique honeycomb pattern, new bumpers, and updated headlights with sequential turn signals.
  • Tech Upgrade: Inside, the Corolla Cross boasts a digital cockpit with a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 10.1-inch infotainment screen. It also gains a panoramic sunroof with an electric sunshade.
  • Safety First: The Toyota Safety Sense ADAS suite has been updated, offering enhanced driver assistance features.
  • Powertrain Stays Put: The 1.8-liter petrol and hybrid powertrains remain unchanged.


India on Hold

While the Corolla Cross facelift seems promising, Toyota has decided not to launch it in India. The project, codenamed 340 D, did not meet the company’s technical and commercial viability requirements. However, sources suggest that Toyota might reconsider in the future if market conditions change.

Key Highlights:

  • Facelifted Corolla Cross gets bolder styling and tech upgrades.
  • Digital cockpit with large screens and panoramic sunroof add premium feel.
  • Safety features receive an update.
  • No India launch for now, despite initial plans.


So, while the refreshed Corolla Cross might tantalize Indian car enthusiasts, they’ll have to wait and see if Toyota changes its mind about a local launch.
