It was announced in early 2021 that the Toyota Corolla Cross was coming to Pakistan as a competitor to the Hyundai Tucson and the Kia Sportage. In spite of the fact that this was a completely built-up car (CBU) with an extremely high price tag, this prevented it from being a very popular vehicle.

With an e-CVT gearbox and a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder hybrid petrol engine that combines with an electric motor, this vehicle delivers 168 horsepower and 305 Newton-meters of torque to the front wheels via a powertrain that includes a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder petrol engine with four cylinders.
