The newest images Toyota Yaris Cross that surfaced internet recently show us what the new model looks like in real-world conditions

Recently, new images of the Toyota Yaris Cross that show the new model in its full grace have surfaced online. The car in these leaked images is the production version that will soon go on sale in select international markets. As per the leaked pictures, the new Yaris Cross gets smaller dimensions and more conventional styling in comparison to the Toyota C-HR.

According to the revealed specs, the Toyota Yaris Cross measures 4,180 mm long, 1,765 mm wide and 1,560 mm high. With these dimensions, the Toyota Yaris Cross is comparable with the Volkswagen T-Cross. Toyota Yaris Cross is based on the GA-B TNGA platform. In our country, Toyota is offering the Yaris sedan, which has absolutely no connection with the Yaris Cross. Toyota Yaris Cross is actually related to the MK4 Toyota Yaris hatchaback which was revived last year in October.

When going on sale, the Toyota Yaris Cross will be offered in petrol and hybrid variants. The ICE version will receive power from an M15A-FKS 1.5-litre direct-injection 3-cylinder petrol engine while the hybrid variant will come with an M15A-FXE 1.5-litre direct-injection 3-cylinder petrol engine combined with an electric motor. On the pure ICE variants, the maximum power and torque outputs stand at 120 PS and 145 Nm, respectively. On the other hand, the combined power and torque of the hybrid version is 171 PS and 261 Nm.

The petrol engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT gearbox. AWD version of the petrol Yaris Cross is paired exclusively with the CVT option while the hybrid variants, regardless of the drive type, is available with an e-CVT unit.

Some exterior features of Toyota Yaris Cross include LED headlights, LED taillights, and 18-inch alloy wheels. On the inside, the Yaris Cross is equipped to the brim with upmarket features like 10-inch colour head-up display, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatibility. Additionally, there are also built-in navigation function and 40:20:40 split rear seats for the Toyota Yaris Cross.

Thanks to all the goodies it is packed with, the Toyota Yaris Cross is unlikely to be priced very competitively. Toyota has definitely designed the Yaris Cross for the developed markets like Europe and Japan, where the pricing is not the biggest priority of the buyers. Moreover, Toyota has no plans to launch brand new models in the A and B segments of the Indian car market, which means the Yaris Cross won't come here anytime soon.
