Hey all, I see that the AWD has a flatter back than the FWD. I want to put a mattress in the back for car camping. Has anyone gotten a mattress pad for their 2022 Corolla Cross? Just trying to figure out if a twin or full mattress would possibly fit.

If you have the dimensions, that would be awesome too. TIA!

Hi @minklyn welcome to the forum! I think at least a twin mattress will fit. Someone in Japan did some camping in their Corolla Cross and you can see their sleeping setup starting at the 10:38 mark of the video. Do you have your Corolla Cross or are you waiting to order it?

The only specs I can find for the Cross’ cargo area are in the rather useless cubic feet. I couldn’t find anywhere that listed the length and width of that space. Maybe someone here who has one can go out with a tape measure for us?

That said, it is almost certain that a mattress will not fit in the Cross. I bought a twin sized memory foam mattress for my 2017 Subaru Outback. The mattress is 75 inches long and 38 inches wide. The Outback was wide enough, but I had to cut 7 inches of length off of the mattress to be able to close the tailgate. That was with the mattress over the folded second row seats. It was just long enough to sleep on comfortably.

I’m going to try to get that same mattress into the Cross, but I know I will have to cut it down even further. That means that one likely will have to lie down diagonally to fit in there, and might have to extend into the front passenger seat (assuming it folds down at all). Without length/width information on that space it’s impossible to know how well it will work (if at all).

I'll be ordering my CC from Japan, as they include that camping package with Japanese dinner included! 😋😅

It's weird that you never see specs for any dimension other than volume, which for me is always a shoulder shrug. The dealership should be able to provide that from their service manuals... if they can figure out how to read one. I tried to find out the proper idle rpms and they thought I was crazy. For the modern dealer trained mechanic, the proper rpms is when the computer gives 'em a thumbs up!

I doubt that a full-sized mattress will fit, I would recommend getting a foam mattress that you trim to fit, for an exact fit. Also, the dealership could call you to come in and measure when they have one come through for prep before the owner picks up. I got to sit inside one that way.

I measured one at a dealership.
Cargo area rear seats up: 36"wide x 30"deep (to the rear corner).
Cargo area rear seats folded: 36"wide (at wheelwells) x ~60"to ~62", to the back of the driver's seat, which was in hindmost position. Will be bonus inches if the seat isn't all the way back.
Diagonal with rear seats down: ~71", good enough to get my skis in.

You may want to look at the tents that are made to attach to back of SUVs. I have had my cross since late November and have looked at under 1500 lb campers and hassocks that fit under the rear seat to make it level and in the end maybe I just rent a cabin by the Lake don't know yet.

Great to know! Just a few inches smaller than the Outback. A trimmed foam mattress should fit just fine and be big enough to sleep on. In my Outback I have the mattress on a platform with 5 inches of space underneath for storage. With the raised bump that the rear seats have in the Cross, sounds like that might be required to have a level surface all the way back. My platform is made from 3 overlapping pieces of plywood that can “telescope” in a rear crash. (A single solid piece wouldn’t be safe)
