Stand-out 2024 Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid features 

I spent a week learning about the best and worst 2024 Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid features. This spunky and affordable SUV shouldn’t be judged by its cover. It has more to offer than you think. 

Some of the top features include:  

  • Efficiency 
  • Value 
  • Comfort and convenience

1. The Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid is more efficient than it lets on 

The Corolla Cross Hybrid gets an EPA-estimated 45 mpg in the city and up to 38 mpg on the highway, making it a true rival against the Maverick Hybrid. Especially because these figures include AWD and the Maverick Hybrid can’t be paired with AWD. 

But this isn’t the whole story. The Corolla Cross Hybrid has an EV mode and strong regenerative brakes. You can see in the digital gauge cluster when you’re gaining a charge and using electric power. 

The EV mode works at speeds under 25 mpg, saving even more fuel in stop-and-go traffic and school pickup lines. 

2. The Cross Hybrid packs in value 

The 2024 Corolla Cross Hybrid starts with an MSRP of $28,200 and the $1,350 destination fee brings the starting price to $29,550. The top-spec XSE model costs $32,755 with the destination fee included. 

This challenges rivals like the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-30, with similarly priced fully loaded models that don’t have hybrid engines. 

The Corolla Cross Hybrid starts with: 

  • 17-inch wheels 
  • LED headlights 
  • Automatic climate control 
  • Remote keyless entry/push button start 
  • Height-adjustable driver’s seat
  • 8.0-inch infotainment system
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto 
  • Heated exterior mirrors 
  • Adaptive cruise control 
  • Lane departure mitigation 
  • Lane-keeping assist 
  • Forward Collison warning 

Upgrading to the XSE provides 18-inch wheels, tinted rear windows, a wireless phone charging pad, ambient lighting, heated front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, automatic high beams, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, extra USB ports, and more.

3. The Toyota Corolla Cross is easy and convenient 

One of the best 2024 Toyota Coralla Cross Hybrid features is its convenience. It’s comfortable in the front and second rows with well-padded seats and a relaxed reclining angle in the rear. Plus, there are rear air vents and USB ports. 

It has a smooth ride with limited road and wind noise at higher speeds. Only an occasional engine buzz while accelerating disrupts the cabin peace. 

It has a convenient 17.7-foot turning radius for whipping into parking spaces and turning around in tight areas. The parking sensors make up for limited visibility due to a small rear window. 

The tech has clearly labeled buttons and dials with a system that works quickly. It’s easy to adjust your settings and connecting your phone to wireless Apple CarPlay doesn’t require a cord. 

Plus, the digital gauge cluster presents useful information about your fuel economy, miles per gallon left, other gauges, and navigation steps without distraction. Everything you need is at a glance.
