A new SUV based on the classic Corolla will be installed on the assembly line of the plant in Alabama in September this year. Such information is shared by insiders.

New spy shots confirm rumors that the Toyota Corolla Cross is coming to the United States. The photos show a carefully camouflaged SUV, which is being tested on one of the American tracks. Despite the name, the model is not very similar to the current Corolla.

The SUV has a different design of the front, as well as original optics with smoother outlines. The Corolla Cross profile can be called a classic with minimal cork relief and a rather interesting roof line. The stern is decorated with new taillights.

If the Corolla Cross has the same powertrains in the specification for America as the version available in Thailand, it is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 140 horsepower and 175 Nm. The motor works in conjunction with the variator and front-wheel drive.

There is also a hybrid version, which includes a 72-horsepower electric motor and a 98-horsepower 1.8-liter gasoline engine.
Production of the novelty will begin in September this year, but the SUV will enter the market as a model in 2022. The Corolla Cross is based on the GA-C platform, a variant of the modular TNGA architecture.

Earlier, our portal reported that a prototype of the new Porsche Cayman GT4 RS was seen at the Nurburgring. And on the race track brought two test cars at once.
