Toyota Corolla Cross 2025: midlife facelift with new grille debuts in Thailand


The Corolla Cross small SUV is now four years old and is getting a new look, but it hasn’t been confirmed for Australia

Toyota has just debuted a facelifted Corolla Cross small SUV for the Thailand market. 

The model first debuted in 2020, and will now receive a refreshed look for the 2024 model year. 

The biggest difference over the existing Corolla Cross is the addition of a new honeycomb-patterned grille with a body-coloured finish and new ‘crystalised’ LED headlights that also feature sequential indicators.

The remaining features of the popular small SUV remain unchanged for its region. 

The facelifted car retains the same engines as before, along with the option of either an 8.0-inch or 10.5-inch centre touchscreen.  

At this point in time, Toyota Australia has not confirmed the facelifted Corolla Cross for our local market.

The Corolla Cross competes with other small SUVs in a popular segment with the likes of the Subaru Crosstrek, Volkswagen T-Roc and the Toyota Yaris Cross, among others.
