Toyota bases the 2023 Corolla Cross on its dependable compact car of the same name. The Corolla sedan and hatchback share their basic design, powertrains and more with the Corolla Cross. On top of that, the Corolla Cross provides more cargo space, more ground clearance and available all-wheel drive. It’s a small Toyota with plenty of SUV-related appeal and an alternative if you find the bigger RAV4 to be too expensive.
