Toyota Corolla Cross 2022 Can Threaten Jeep Compass

The Corolla Cross XRE draws attention for a certain simplicity, especially for those who had just been in the Compass (and we looked at the Sport version, the basic Jeep).

Until today, when thinking about a medium SUV, normally what came to mind was just the Jeep Compass. Since it was launched in 2016, the model produced in Pernambuco has practically reigned alone in the segment.

But as of now the coolest dispute to follow is exactly in this category. The Toyota Corolla Cross has been with us since March, and the VW Taos is hitting stores this month. What will happen?

A short time ago we showed here how the Compass 2022 looks like, with its new 1.3 turbo flex engine. The car surprised. Now it’s time to take the wheel of Toyota’s representative and assess its potential.

We ride in the XRE version, the top of the line considering the model equipped with 2.0 Dynamic Force engine. It costs BRL 153,690. Just as a reminder, the SUV starts at R$ 143,490 (XR version) and reaches R$ 184,490 on the XRX, with hybrid propulsion. These are prices compatible with Compass.
