Toyota Yaris Cross SUV - Interior & comfort

It's not the most stylish interior, but it feels tough and there's plenty of tech

To ensure it handles securely, the Yaris Cross has slightly firm suspension, but it's not likely to crash into bumps or upset passengers too frequently. Refinement is also good for a small car, especially when the petrol engine isn't needed. It engages smoothly in hybrid mode, and only gets noticeably louder if you accelerate very hard, unlike older CVT models. 

Toyota Yaris Cross dashboard

Like the vast majority of Toyota models, the interior primarily feels functional and tough, so the dashboard design of rivals like the Peugeot 2008 is more appealing. It's hard to argue with its simple layout, though, and it's appreciable how easy to use its physical climate control knobs and switches are to use on the move. While the positioning of the central eight-inch infotainment touchscreen perched on the dashboard isn't the most attractive, it is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

Equipment

The trim levels are Icon, Design and Excel. Two more trims known as Dynamic and Premiere Edition were previously offered but have now been discontinued. Entry-level Icon is still reasonably desirable, with 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic lights, keyless entry and a rear-view camera. An eight-inch infotainment screen also comes as standard. 

Design comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch digital gauge cluster, LED exterior lighting, privacy glass and a black roof lining.

Step up to Excel, and 18-inch alloys are fitted along with folding door mirrors and a powered tailgate. Inside, there's a nine-inch infotainment display, part-synthetic leather seats, grey roof lining, dual-zone climate control and extra safety features. 

Options

There's a number of optional packs available for the Yaris Cross, along with dealer-fit accessories. The Tech Pack for Design trim adds the nine-inch infotainment setup, while a City and Advanced Safety Pack for Dynamic and Premiere Edition brings a 360-degree camera view, all-round parking sensors and safety equipment to help avoid a collision while driving or parking.

Families may also want to consider solutions like the SUV Pack, adding rear seat protection, a boot liner, rubber floor mats, mud flaps and side steps, which can also be specified individually. A towing pack is also available with a detachable towing hitch and 13-pin electrics.
