These days, hybrid engines are used in more than just quiet, eco-friendly vehicles like the Prius.

The 2023 Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid will be positioned by Toyota as the most powerful, sportiest, and fuel-efficient grade in the Corolla Cross family.

With a 2.0-liter I-4 Atkinson cycle gasoline engine and three electric motors, the 2023 Corolla Cross Hybrid can propel itself from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 8 seconds, 

more than a second quicker than the non-hybrid version's sprint time of 169 horsepower to all four wheels. 

Especially on highway bends, the Corolla Cross Hybrid's sport-tuned suspension makes the car more poised and nimble than its gas-only counterpart.

Hybrid's drive arrangement and gearbox work together to improve the car's responsiveness to the driver.
