Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Niro isn't our favorite car to drive, but it's perfect for drivers who care as much about fuel efficiency as they do about their budget.

Pros
Efficiently rated up to 52 mpg,
affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.

The 2020 Kia Niro is a compelling eco-friendly car for those opposed to Prius-like looks.

Pros
Oh so frugal
Comfortable, roomy interior
Excellent value
SUV-ish looks

Cons
No AWD option
Light on thrills
High-trim version uses more fuel
Automatic emergency braking should be standard

Toyota will likely position the Corolla Cross between the C-HR small SUV and RAV4 medium SUV, and of course given the name, it’ll sit in a triangular pocket between those two SUVS and as a wagon-alternative to the Corolla sedan and hatch. Key competitors will include small SUVs like the Hyundai Kona, Nissan Qashqai, Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-30 amongst others in the segment.
Don’t expect to see the Corolla's head-up display. There’s no mention of it overseas, or premium audio for that matter with no mention of JBL-supplied audio as seen in other Toyota models.

In terms of size, the small crossover slots between the subcompact C-HR and the compact RAV4. Oddly enough, it bears little resemblance to the rest of the Corolla family. With sharp headlights and more rounded proportions than the RAV4, the design is pleasing, albeit conventional.
Like the RAV4, the Corolla Cross is designed with practicality in mind. The automaker promises large door openings for easy entry and exit, an elevated driving position, and a spacious interior. Toyota is aiming for class-leading luggage space in the Thai market. Comfort and convenience features include a 9.0-inch touchscreen, a power moonroof, rear USB outlets, LED headlights and taillights, a foot-activated liftgate, and more.
