2022 Toyota Corolla Cross for Sale in Warwick, RI
Corolla is a storied nameplate, going back to the 1960s and building in popularity when the gas crisis hit in the early ‘70s. The sedan and hatchback versions of the Corolla have maintained steady sales over the decades, and the first-ever gas-electric hybrid version of this nameplate came out for model year 2020. Now, with crossovers at the height of popularity, Toyota has introduced the Corolla Cross, a vehicle for drivers who want a higher perch above the road and a tad more space and utility than they get in the more traditional body styles.
The 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross shares some aesthetic traits with the Corolla Sedan and Hatchback: it’s clear that these are automotive siblings. It slides into a slot between the C-HR and the RAV4, giving crossover shoppers a lot of choices that wear the T emblem, which has come to be known as a symbol for reliability.
Trims and Performance
The debut Corolla Cross is offered in three trim levels, which are L, LE, and XLE. Under their hood is a 169 hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that connects to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available to enhance performance and provide superior traction. With FWD, the ’22 Corolla Cross accomplishes an EPA-rated 31 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. There’s only a slight efficiency tradeoff with the AWD version, which achieves 29 city/32 highway. The Corolla Cross is able to tow a small amount (up to 1,500 pounds).
The base-level L comes with LED headlights, automatic high beams, heated side mirrors, cloth seats, air conditioning with air filter and backseat vents, and a 60/40-split fold-flat second-row seatback. The LE upgrades its side mirrors with turn-signal and blind-spot indicators and adds roof rails, push-button start, front-row door handles with touch-sensor lock/unlock, rear privacy glass, automatic climate control (single zone), a wireless phone charger, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The top-of-the-line XLE pampers its occupants with heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, ambient interior lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped shift knob, synthetic leather seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, LED fog lights, a 7-inch multi-information display, a rear-seat folding armrest, and a tonneau cover for the cargo area.
Every ’22 Corolla Cross trim gets the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of advanced driver aids, which contains a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, lane departure warning with steering assist, lane keep assist, lane tracing assist, adaptive cruise control, and road sign assist. A blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert is added at the LE level, and the XLE also gets front and rear parking sensors and reverse automatic braking.
The infotainment system in the L has a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a six-speaker sound system. The LE and XLE move up to an 8-inch touchscreen and are eligible for a more sophisticated nine-speaker JBL sound system with a subwoofer and amplifier.
