After the introduction of the subcompact Toyota Corolla Cross SUV, I was wondering when Toyota would release a hybrid version of the SUV. Well, it’s finally time for Toyota to launch the 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid. The addition of the Corolla Cross’ electrified powertrain certainly raises the question of which Corolla to buy in Toyota’s lineup, including comparisons to the Corolla sedan. We believe the comparison is well established and will likely be determined by the price of the SUV.
Toyota The Corolla Cross Hybrid has been confirmed to be available in three trims: S, SE and XSE. Pricing for the Corolla Cross Hybrid S starts at $29,305 (including destination), while the top-tier XSE starts at $32,400. All things considered, the Corolla Cross Hybrid’s starting price isn’t bad for a standard all-wheel-drive electric subcompact SUV. Also, comparing the Corolla Cross Hybrid with the regular Corolla Cross doesn’t mean that the price jumps significantly.
of Corolla Cross manufacturer’s suggested retail price Starting at $24,395 for the L trim, this is for front-wheel-drive models. With AWD, the Corolla Cross L jumps to $25,695. So for $3,610 you get a Corolla Cross Hybrid with a more powerful engine and improved fuel economy. These upgrades may be worth the extra money.
on the other hand, corolla cross Equipped with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 169 horsepower, the Corolla Cross Hybrid combines a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with three electric motors. The hybrid makes a more substantial 196 horsepower. The extra power makes for a spirited SUV with better acceleration.
The Corolla Cross Hybrid isn’t just more powerful, it’s also more efficient. Toyota estimates the electrified SUV will get up to 45 mpg in city and 38 mpg on the highway, for a total of 42 mpg. Those numbers are far better than the non-hybrid Corolla Cross which is rated up to 29/32/30 mpg (city/fast/combined). Most people see the extra 27 horsepower as a worthy bonus, but the real reason to upgrade to a Corolla Cross Hybrid is the significant improvement in fuel economy.
The Corolla Cross Hybrid has a combined fuel economy of up to 42 mpg, so most people will likely cross-shop for an electric SUV versus the Corolla sedan and its hybrid option. The base Corolla Hybrid LE starts at $23,895 for the FWD model and $25,295 for the AWD model. So it’s $4,010 cheaper than the Corolla Cross Hybrid with similar equipment. It’s also much more efficient. The Corolla Hybrid is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 50 mpg in combination with two electric motors. Even in AWD, the Corolla Hybrid can combine up to 48 mpg.

The new Corolla Cross Hybrid lags slightly in terms of fuel economy and is noticeably more expensive. Comparing the Corolla Cross Hybrid to the regular Corolla Cross is a close race. The 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid is the most affordable hybrid SUV on the market. With Toyota’s good track record in hybrids, an estimated 42 mpg total figure for the SUV, and $3,610 separating the hybrid and petrol models, the Corolla Cross Hybrid is expected to do very well. I think it will sell better than the regular Corolla Cross.
