Toyota Corolla Cross Named Best Small Utility Vehicle by Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) For a Second Year

Jan 23, 2023

  • All 2023 Toyota Corolla Cross models upgraded with the Toyota Multimedia system and Toyota Safety Sense 3.0

  • Six model and trim combinations, with starting MSRPs of $25,790 (FWD) and $27,650 (AWD)

The Corolla Cross is the most versatile member of the Toyota Corolla family – with enough room for all the family, friends, and gear that spell adventure. And now, the members of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada named the Corolla Cross the “Best Small Utility Vehicle in Canada for 2023” – for a second consecutive year. The category win puts the Corolla Cross in the running for the Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year award, to be announced in February.

“The Toyota Corolla Cross blends the driving fun and agility of a sedan with the versatility and go-anywhere attitude of an SUV, all in a compact form factor that’s easy to own and easy to drive,” noted Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “We view the Corolla Cross as a winning combination for Canadian drivers, and we’re thrilled that AJAC’s members agree.”

The Corolla Cross makes an immediate impression with styling that’s daring and confident and an interior that’s surprisingly spacious and versatile. This small but mighty crossover features a 169 peak horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder Dynamic Force engine to maximize driving fun and a choice of front-wheel-drive or Dynamic Torque Control all-wheel-drive powertrains.

New for 2023, Toyota upgrades Corolla Cross’ technology with the next generation Toyota Multimedia system, featuring an 8” touch screen and intuitive touch and voice activation controls – plus the newest safety technologies of Toyota Safety Sense 3.0.
