** This article is the personal experience of a 2020 Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid Thailand owner and does not necessarily reflect the technical specs and features of Malaysian market models.
1. Basic information about my car:
2020 All New Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid premium safety
2. Reasons why I bought this car
Knowing how important it is to have more than one vehicle in a family, selling the Nissan was out of the question.
I needed a family vehicle that must be fuel efficient, HR-V, CR-V had no hybrid models, and for C-HR I really did not like the vehicle. Camry hybrid was way over my budget, so finaly I settled for Corolla Cross Hybrid.
3. Car selection process
- I had a budget of: 1,100,000 baht(about RM164k)
- Models that I have considered include: HR-V, CR-V, C-HR
Reasons why I chose this car:
4. User experience
After doing 4000km, my overall experience have been pretty good. I can't complain or rethink for a second why i bought this car. Sometimes the vehicle feels sluggish on highway but if you change the mode to Power, you will really feel how engaging it is to drive this car.
When you accelerate over 100km/hr, the cabin becomes a bit noisy if I compare with my 21 years old Nissan SuperNeo. Some say its because of the Michelin Primacy4, so maybe a tire change could solve the problem.
Another thing worth mentioning is the air-condition vents for back seat passengers, it really keeps my daughter cool on her car seat during Bangkoks burning sun.
The Audio system is pretty much above standard, it has a setting were you can select which speaker(s) you want the sound to go, its very much handy for me especially when my daughter is behind sleeping.
This car drives so well on corners. the ride height is high but you do not feel as if you are driving a Fortuner, its really easy to drive.
Some say the backseat is a bit cramped, but i do not think so, it is spacious enough to ferry 3 adults.
-Great handling around corners.
-Extremely fuel efficient.
-Spacious enough for a family.
-Sounds like a lawnmower at speeds over 100 km/h.
-Can feel slugish sometimes
-Some cheap materials here and there.
-No adaptive cruise control,LKAS,AHB for this version.
- Total Score:4

- Ride Comfort:5
- Fuel Economy:5
