    Looks very nice, similar to the Rav 4. Any idea of the price?

    Doesnt look too awful, but, I could never understood the reason for these so called "cross over" cars. I though crossing over means when you trade the temporary for the eternal

    Like the polo cross, or the Etios cross - its only got like a bit of a lift, and some fancy stickers and rims, other than that, its just like any other polo or etios.

    The first hybrid built in SA and the big investment surrounding it is a very good thing for our country.

    Got to sometimes wonder though what the car makers are thinking these days with their market segments. For example is there really such a big gap between the CHR and Rav4 to justify a entire new model line? Plus then the pricing also overlaps confusing the buyer even more, the top of the range CHR is already more expensive than the entry level Rav4 and this Corolla Cross will slot in somewhere between them. Same if going a segment higher, the entry level Fortuner is less expensive than the top of the range Rav4.

    My guess is that the new Corolla is not such a good seller at all. It's price is too close to that of a RAV for instance (when I got the Corolla I could get an entry level RAV for R20k more on a special). The pricing of the Cross needs to be lower than the RAV and therefore cheaper than the Corolla, can't see that happening.

    Or Toyota is going to pull a 150kW Hilux on the RAV and up its price with R50k to make it work.

    The Etios was designed and built in India. The roads in India are even worse than ours so they have a high ground clearance. The Corolla Cross was designed for European countries so they don't need that much.
