Howdy. I'm looking forward to saving up and buying a Cross sometime next year (Other life things first such as moving in a few months). I have never purchased a new car before so this will be my first. I'm coming from the world of Celicas, Camry, and Ravs. Currently I have a 98 Rav4 I built into an off roader that a Cross will be replacing. Hoping to order one Summer-ish time and I will be building it into a mild off roader.

I can't wait to see what some people do with their Cross. I'll be attempting to get a XLE with AWD in Cyprus Green. Hopefully when I get it I can start making parts for others as well.

You can find me on the Rav4 forum under the same name.

Hey @foxtherouge welcome to the forum! Nice to have someone with such a history of Toyotas on here! Have you given any thought about how you'd turn the Corolla Cross into an off-roader?

What's sold you on the Corolla Cross compared to a new RAV4?

Hoping there will be some kind of lift kit or one I can retrofit in plus larger tires. I'll probably weld recovery points onto it if there aren't any useful ones. Also lights. Probably build a mount for a fuel and water can on the back or side. Depending on how the front is built I may install a winch.

The current Ravs are a lot larger and heavier than they should be. The Cross is about the same size as my first gen Rav. Smaller and lighter means I can go in more difficult terrain. I've run some trails with lifted 5th gen Ravs and while they don't struggle they are slower and still close to the ground in some areas such as their hitches are very low.

I also daily drive my Rav and will be driving the Cross as a daily so the smaller size makes driving and parking easier.
