2023 Toyota Corolla Cross vs. Its Competition

2023 Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid
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 a more rugged look this year, while the Hyundai Kona gets a newly refreshed body and an electric edition.

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

The VW Taos goes for unrestrained restraint, while the Kia Seltos spins its turbo and saddles up all-wheel drive for driving flair.
