Despite carrying the Yaris name, the Cross variant shares little in common (at least, on the outside) compared to its supermini sibling. It's been built to take on the likes of the Ford Puma and Peugeot 2008, with all models coming in hybrid form to offer buyers electric-only running at certain speeds. If you're on the hunt for a compact crossover, then step this way as we take a closer look at the all-new Toyota Yaris Cross.

The Continental GT has always been about long-distance cruising and effortless performance, but it’s never been a car built for drivers. Well, Bentley hopes to change that with the new Speed. It features a host of updates and refinements to make it fun on a twisty road without compromising the GT’s relaxed nature. Our full review will be out in the coming weeks, but for now we’ve got a close up look at the new Continental GT Speed.
The Mini hatchback has been given a facelift for 2021 that brings with it controversial looks and a tweaked suspension set up which, on paper, appears to be a downgrade over the old car. Mini has moved from an adaptive system to passive, meaning you won’t be able to adjust the ride quality while on the go. Has Mini’s gamble paid off? Or has one of the best handling superminis on the market been nerfed?
The MX-5 is one of the best cars to drive currently on sale, but does the added weight of the retractable hard top on the RF detract from the experience? Let’s start with the numbers. The RF is only 50kg heavier than the soft top MX-5, which is impressive given that mechanical folding roof mechanisms can be seriously heavy. Our test car is the GT Sport Tech, meaning its gets a slightly stiffer suspension set up as well as sporty BBS wheels. We're also trying out the more powerful 2.0-litre SkyActiv-G model, which produces 182hp - 20hp more than the 1.5-litre model we tried earlier this year. So it is really worth the £2,000 premium over the soft-top Miata?
The hybrid-only Yaris Cross is a surprisingly big, practical and efficient SUV. But can it take on the likes of the Ford Puma and Peugeot 2008? It may be called a Yaris and is built on the same underpinnings as its sibling, but the crossover looks almost completely different to the supermini. It rides higher, has completely new bumpers front and rear, and even the lights aren't shared with the regular Yaris. It's powered by a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine producing 116hp. That's coupled with a hybrid system that will give you short spurts of electric running at low speed and will charge itself up on the go so you don't have to plug it in. And with prices starting below £25,000 it looks like a bit of a bargain, so should you buy a new Toyota Yaris Cross?
