Thai media reports suggest that the Toyota Corolla Cross facelift for the ASEAN market is likely to receive similar updates and upgrades as the North American and Japanese versions. If that’s the case, we can expect a significantly different front-end design for the Corolla Cross facelift crossover.
Furthermore, based on the US and Japanese versions, we can predict updates for the interior of the ASEAN version of the Corolla Cross facelift, including a digital instrument cluster with a higher resolution screen and, notably, an electronic parking brake.
Meanwhile, the powertrain options will remain the same as the current version. That means the car will receive a 1.8L petrol engine and a 1.8L hybrid engine. Interestingly, rumors suggest that a new 2.0L hybrid engine will also be introduced for the ASEAN version of the Corolla Cross facelift.
It is still unclear whether the Toyota Corolla Cross facelift will debut in the ASEAN market early next year with a series of notable upgrades as rumored. However, in a segment with many competitive urban SUVs, improvements and changes are necessary for the Toyota Corolla Cross to maintain its appeal with customers.
