Default Toyota Corolla-based crossover spied

The new Corolla-based model SUV(crossover) which has been caught for the first time undergoing testing in Europe is set to give the brand a smaller crossover model to sit beneath the RAV4.

Competitor to the aforementioned XV , not to mention the impressive new Nissan Qashqai. Other cars the Toyota model would compete against include the Ford EcoSport and Peugeot 2008.

Looks like a Toyota Auris with big wheels. pretty much like how Mercedes put big wheels on A Class to make GLA

Would be fairly stupid to ask, but why can't TKM think of bringing this to India.
IIMR, this maybe the global mini-SUV/crossover that Toyota is planning to replace the Toyota Rush/Daihatsu Terios with.

Instead of this, TKM is planning to bring a crossover based on the Etios platform citing cost issues.
BTW. looks more like a raised hatch and the profile resembles the Suzuki S cross shape, and Toyota will sure launch an AWD version of this.

I seriously think this SUV/X-Over business is getting a little too skewed. With so much of hype all the automakers want to have something out of their gates monikered as SUV or a X-Over. I dont know by which stretch of imagination this particular one qualifies to be anything more than a premium hatchback.

Sorry, this doesn't look like an SUV/Crossover from any angle. It is new hatch most probably.

Not sure if a separate thread exist for this. Since its based on Corolla, it might just make its way into India as well.

Though the ground clearance does look attractive, I would say the machoness of an SUV is missing.
At best, it can be a cross tourer like the Cross Etios, Cross Polo and Aventurra.

Yes, the GC is really impressive. Looks like a proper crossover & not half baked like Etios cross or cros Polo & doesnt appears to be under 4 mtr as well. When it comes to India it might have a rear mounted spare wheel to complete the SUVish looks.

A smart move, though it seems Toyota is a follower as usual for new segments.
Probably it wont make it to our shores, citing costs and placement near or around Innova price bracket.

This looks like the SX4 S cross rival. Wonder where this new crop of SUVs are heading, they simply don't have the ruggedness and macho character of a SUV

Looks a little bit like the Matrix, but somehow I don't think the lines look very Toyota-ish. It looks more like the Lexus CT200.

Since the RAV4 is based on a corolla platform, this spy vehicle has all the makings of the RAV4, but more of a car-ish version.

This looks more for Europe. Highly doubt if Toyota would bring this here. They can easily bring the Rav4 if required.

We call this a "SUV" because ... Its TOYOTA ?
Come on folks, probably an "Esstate" version ?
