In the intense American crossover sales battle, the 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross seems set to take on mini-SUVs.

Under the hood, the Cross has a 169-hp four-cylinder engine that can be coupled to either front- or all-wheel drive.

The 2022 Cross is more than your typical small hatchback thanks to its SUV shape and increased ride height.

2022 Corolla Cross's zero-to-60-mph time in the all-wheel-drive test was a sluggish 9.2 seconds.

The EPA forecasts that the front-wheel-drive Corolla Cross will get 31 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway; opting for all-wheel drive would get you 29 and 32 mpg, respectively.

The increased proportions of the Corolla Cross provide greater space for passengers, especially in the back seat, as well as extra baggage capacity.

The dashboard of the Corolla Cross has a square infotainment display flanked by shortcut buttons.

Toyota will continue to offer all the driver assistance and safety features on all the Cross models as standard.
