Toyota pits the Toyota Corolla Cross against the Ford Maverick

A blue Toyota Corolla Cross is driving on the road.

Toyota recently added a new nameplate to its vehicle portfolio. The Toyota Corolla Cross is a subcompact SUV that shares many features with its predecessor, the Toyota Corolla. Toyota has been running some interesting comparisons with the competition via its YouTube channel. In the latest video from Toyota, the Japanese automaker pits its new subcompact SUV against Ford’s popular tiny truck, the Ford Maverick.

Toyota says the Corolla Cross is better than the Ford Maverick

Toyota’s first reason that the Corolla Cross is “better than the Hipster” is that the Corolla Cross is built to handle outdoor, off-road adventures. In making this statement, the brand compares the ground clearance of both vehicles. The Toyota Corolla Cross has 8.1 inches of ground clearance. The Ford Maverick has 8.3 inches of ground clearance. Neither vehicle is suited for uneven terrain in their base configurations. Ford offers off-road packages for the Maverick. So this claim seems far-fetched.
