Jolion VS Corolla Cross

Even though you might be a die-hard Toyota fan, you might have ogled the new Jolion back when it came to Namibia as a possible rival to the RAV, as for the much cheaper price tag with a lot more features. Toyota did not hold back when releasing the new Corolla Cross and although the price might be adjusted to the Toyota brand, we see a lot more features in this new design.

They say the proof is in the pudding, so let's have a look at the features and specs of both.
