Inside The Toyota Yaris Cross
The Yaris Cross comes with a single engine choice, and that’s the 115hp hybrid 1.5-litre petrol unit which is shared with the Yaris hatchback, as is the automatic gearbox. Thanks to the engine and electric motor working together, performance feels nippy around town, and the Yaris Cross has plenty of power for longer journeys on motorways.
Its best attribute is its fuel economy. Toyota officially quotes up to 64mpg on the WLTP test, close to the Yaris Cross’ real-world capability. Toyota estimates that on a typical urban journey, the Yaris Cross can spend as much as 80% of its time with the engine off, running on its battery power. That makes for a low emissions figure of as little as 100g/km.
Refinement is good, too, and the Yaris Cross is a very relaxing car to drive.
The Yaris Cross might be diminutive by modern standards, but it’s the same overall size as an original RAV4, so the space inside is actually pretty good. There’s adult-sized space in the back seats and the boot can hold a very useful 397 litres (expanding to 1,097 litres with the back seats folded down).

Nissan offers the Juke Hybrid, which uses a gearbox that’s more complex than Toyota’s simple automatic, but the overall effect is the same – it has decent performance levels and excellent real-world fuel economy. It’s not as roomy in the back seats nor the boot as the Yaris Cross, though.
Closely related to that Nissan Juke Hybrid is the Renault Captur Hybrid, and while the Renault is as roomy in the back seats as the Toyota, it too has a smaller boot.
Hyundai’s Kona Hybrid is a very good Yaris Cross rival, with smart styling and a high-quality cabin.
Toyota has an all-but-unbeatable reputation for producing solidly built cars – and given that the Yaris Cross shares all of its parts with the popular Yaris hatchback, we’d have no hesitation in saying that it should be very reliable indeed.
With a boot capacity of 397 litres (up to the luggage cover), the Yaris Cross has one of the bigger boots in its class. That expands to 1,097 litres when the rear seats are folded down.
Yes, all Yaris Cross models come with a rear-view parking camera and sensors.
For a compact car, it’s a very practical little thing. There’s adequate space in the back seat for taller adults and the boot is bigger than those found in most of the competition.
Given its combination of cute styling, efficient engine, low emissions, and Toyota’s reputation for quality and reliability, it’s not hard to see why the Yaris Cross is proving a popular choice. If you want some crossover style and practicality but need a car that’s cheap to run and nippy around town, it’s a very good choice.
