Corolla Cross GR Sport Crossover Priced At Just RM142,000
This Corolla Cross GR Sport will be sold out before you reach the showroom tomorrow.
The GAZOO Racing spirit cuts across all models and now it comes with the popular Corolla Cross SUV.
With work done by the GR Sport team, it will cater to SUV customers pursuing a more active lifestyle and seeking enhanced sporty driving feel and better handling as well as enhanced exterior and interior presence with GR Sport styling.
The exterior sports a 2-tone colour package: black exterior on the outer mirror, roof and rear spoiler for sportier appeal while a more aggressively-styled front radiator grille has a black design for a sportier and wider impression.
Exterior presence also comes from a set of 18” inch GR Sport designed alloy wheels; clear lens LED rear lamps; an exclusive rear bumper lower garnish design for a sportier personality; and 3 colour options – 2-tone Platinum White Pearl (Hero), 2-tone Red Mica Metallic and 2-tone Nebula Blue.
It also sports an all-black interior with red stitching among other features that clearly distinguishes it as a GR Sport. Features exclusive to it include a push start button with GR logo; a leather-wrapped with red stitching steering wheel with tilt and telescopic adjustments; leather with red stitching lever knob and boot; leather with red stitching seat covers with embossed GR logos on the front headrest; and a GR carpet mat design.
Engine power ratings remain at 139 PS and 172 Nm of torque and this GR Sport Corolla Cross is still mated to the reliable 7-Speed CVT with Sequential Shiftmatic transmission, electric power steering with a Sport ECU, specially-tuned stiffer front and rear suspension and a special performance bar added under the chassis.
Meanwhile, as before, the GR Sport Corolla Cross is also equipped with a full range of advanced safety and technology features that include: a Pre Crash System; Automatic High Beam; Dynamic Radar Cruise Control; Lane Departure Alert; Lane Tracing Assist; 3D Panoramic View Monitor; Blind Spot Monitor; Rear Cross Traffic Alert; Tyre Pressure Warning System; Driver Start Control; Vehicle Telematics System; Front & Rear Driving Video Recorder; and 7 SRS Airbags (Best In Class).
Interestingly, did you know that the standard Corolla Cross was launched in Malaysia in January 2022 for just RM136k (which means this GR prepared version is just RM6k more and worth every Ringgit) and it is family practical C-SUV that completes the modern Corolla range, giving Toyota an even stronger presence in the European C-segment and the market’s widest range of SUV models.
Developed with Toyota’s TNGA philosophy, it is constructed on the well-proven GA-C platform and offers the essential qualities that have made the Corolla an enduring success.
Corolla remains the world’s best-selling automotive nameplate, with more than 50 million global sales across 55 years and 12 generations.
