Under the hood, the Yaris Cross Adventure remains unchanged. It will be available with an AWD hybrid system with a 1.5-liter petrol engine coupled to an electric motor.

Toyota will begin accepting pre-bookings for the new Yaris Cross in the second half of 2021 in global markets, but we don’t expect it to hit our shores anytime soon.
