The Smart Buy Now at Toyota Is This Hybrid SUV at a Diesel Price

This is one of the best-selling Toyota hybrid models among those who usually move around the city. While in the United States it's the RAV4 or the Prius, the Yaris Cross is Toyota's best selling hybrid vehicle in Europe.


Compact cars and utility vehicles are the perfect option for those who usually move around the city. And since these models are the best option for it, there are many brands that offer hybrid options in both segments. Because those who often drive on busy roads prioritize low consumption. And in this aspect the best options are diesel, of which there are fewer and fewer options, and hybrids, whose options continue to increase. And the latter are the smartest purchase for the most urbanites.

One of the best-selling models among city cars is the Toyota Yaris Cross. A perfect model to deal with the traffic of the big city and with the search for parking, both in terms of size and consumption, but which offers a crossover bonus so that you do not give up on your weekend getaways.

"The Toyota Yaris Cross is the smart purchase for those who usually move around the city," writes Robert Rodriguez at El National.

Its dimensions are 4.18 m long, 1.56 m high and 1.76 m wide. It has a battle distance of 2,560 mm. And in its trunk it houses 390 liters of cargo. And in addition to its design, it also stands out for its complete equipment and the efficiency of its mechanical blocks.

The Toyota Yaris Cross range is configured with a 120H block. It is a 1.5-liter three-cylinder Atkinson VVT-I Hybrid gasoline engine with 116 hp and 120 Nm of maximum torque. It is associated with a front-wheel drive system and a CVT automatic gear change. And assisted by an electrification system with HEV technology.

A block that offers very correct benefits. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 170 km/h. Register a consumption of 4.4 liters per 100 km. And CO2 emissions of 100 grams per km.
