I have recently purchased the 2022 Corolla Cross L FWD (Sonic Silver) here in USA.
Automotive parking light Car Wheel Tire Vehicle

If I don't write a review, that will be injustice to this excellent vehicle. Due to this chip shortage, I had to preorder it, before even seeing or test driving it. I was looking into the YouTube videos to have some idea.
My concerns were:
1. FWD rear wheel torsion beam suspension: I have driven CRV multilink and corolla cross torsion beam one after another. I was not able to notice the difference. Torsion beam was noticeable in 11th generation corolla sedan, which is not in Corolla cross. May be there is some change in construction of the torsion beam suspension for cross.
2. Rear seat legroom: It looks to me perfect.
3. Visibility: Excellent visibility. Side mirror are bigger than normal crossovers. So Less blind spots.
4. Cargo space: Perfect should be the word.
5. Exterior: This is one of the beautiful Toyota I should say. Close to RAV 4.
6. Cabin air noise: Driven a 2022 Corolla sedan and Cross one after another. Cabin air noise level is same as corolla sedan.
7. Tire/ Road noise: Same or less compared to corolla sedan.
8. Engine noise inside the cabin: Corolla cross uses a 2.0 L naturally aspirated engine which is used in corolla hatchbacks. This engine can be loud naturally at certain RPMs. So engine noise at certain RPM inside the cabin can be high. But it looks to me OKAY.
Lets see how long it can last!

Fantastic looking Corolla Cross @sam congratulations! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it so far. How do you find the overall ride quality?

The noise "issue" is related to the dual injector system Toyota uses in the Cross. The Cross has both port and direct injection and the computer switches between them depending on load acceleration. Also, the dual system reduces carbon build up on the back of the valves caused by direct injection only systems. Check out the Car Care Nut YouTube channel video about the technical system on the Cross here: 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross Technical Review | Everything you need to know

Thanks for your review. It's been 35 days since my Cross was ordered. At least 30 days to go before it's on the truck - I hope. 🙏

I had read when the Cross was introduced that the torsion beam is a new design.
