All of that impressive fuel economy doesn’t come at the cost of a lack of power. No, the Corolla Cross still offers a spirited and confident ride. Every Corolla Cross model comes equipped with a 2.0-liter Dynamic Force four-cylinder, aluminum alloy block engine that cranks out 169 horsepower and 150 lb.-ft of torque. That engine is mated to a Direct Shift-CVT (continuously variable transmission) for a fully dynamic ride. 

These fuel economy numbers really demonstrate how well the new Corolla Cross will fit in with the entire Corolla family, and we can’t wait to give it a spin!
