Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport Hybrid arrives in Malaysia – RM15x,xxx?

Could UMW Toyota Motor be planning to launch a Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport in Malaysia? Based on what we found, a sportier version of the Toyota Corolla Cross could be hitting showrooms in Malaysia soon.

we sighted this ad posted by a sales agent listing a GR Sport variant of the Corolla Cross for RM15x,xxx. The listing also lists it as a hybrid instead of the regular 1.8L gas version. By comparison, the regular Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid is priced at RM142,000.

Offering the GR Sport exclusively as hybrid matches what Toyota did for the model in Thailand. It is also an exclusive hybrid model in our neighbor to the north.

The GR Sport body kit has a significantly different front fascia. There’s a new grille with a horizontal bar and thick gloss-black surround leading to the headlights, reminiscent of the latest Land Cruiser 200 facelift. Further down, you’ll find a more aggressive triple air intake design, plus a more robust design. decorative protective plate.

At the rear, clear LED taillights are mounted. Rounding out the exterior changes are a black roof and unique 18-inch turbine-design two-tone alloy wheels. Inside, you get black leather seats with a white center stripe and GR-embossed headrests, a perforated leather-wrapped gear stick, gloss black interior trim, and some GR badging. Some chassis tweaks are also included, consisting of a retuned steering and lower strut bar.

The above are of course the Thai specifications. For Malaysian specs and actual pricing, we’ll have to wait until the eventual launch to find out what our Toyota Corolla Cross GR Sport will get.
