2022 Toyota Corolla Cross vs. Its Competition

2022 Toyota Corolla Cross
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Small crossovers like the Toyota Corolla Cross try to elevate their game in other ways save for size.

The Honda HR-V has “Magic Seat” flexibility and good efficiency, while the Hyundai Tucson gets a comely body and a hybrid model.

The VW Taos goes for unrestrained restraint, while the Kia Sportage soldiers on another year until a complete redo.

For sporty bona fides, the Mazda CX-30 has the niche mostly to itself, with good handling and turbo power.
