Toyota adds a new version of the Corolla Cross

OCTOBER 02, 2023
Toyota Corolla Nightshade

The SUV range is updated with the Nightshade version for 2024. With a more powerful engine and aesthetic changes, will it have any impact on the model offered in Argentina? One of the great phenomena of the decade in the automotive industry is the irruption and remarkable sales performance of the Toyota Corolla Cross not only in our country, where it competes for the dominance of the segment with models such as Tracker (Chevrolet) and Taos (Volkswagen), but also in the United States. In North America in particular, Toyota announced the inclusion of the Nightshade version that stands out mainly for including additional details to the model such as darkened badges, exterior door handles and black mirrors, an integrated rear spoiler and a roof rack as a standard accessory. Available exclusively with electronic all-wheel drive on demand (e-AWD), the Corolla Cross Hybrid maximizes the inherent potential of its heavy-duty TNGA-C platform, enabling the model to get the most out of its hybrid system, which, as a result, develops 196 hp of power and a 0-60 mph time of 8 seconds. Among the elements included in the Corolla Cross range in the U.S. are 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels (depending on the version), Toyota Audio Multimedia infotainment system integrated to an eight-inch central touch screen with wireless connectivity to Apple Car Play and Android Auto, SoftTex upholstered seats with heating system for the front seats, premium LED headlights, taillights and fog lights, single- or dual-zone automatic climate control, among other details. In terms of safety, the Japanese brand's fleet stands out for including a wide variety of driving assistants, being the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 package the best example with features such as the pre-collision system with pedestrian and motorcyclist detection, blind spot monitor, cross-traffic alert and hill start assistant. Meanwhile, in our region, the Corolla Cross is expected to be updated soon with more technology, safety and a new engine for next year. Fuente: Parabrisas
