The Lexus RX-based SUV features a 2.0-litre (171hp and 207Nm) petrol engine along with 2.5-litre petrol-hybrid (222hp) as option while mated to a CVT gearbox.
The new Harrier packs signature lamps, simple structure, narrowed coupe cabin with sports car-like wheel housings extending from both sides of the body gives a generous ruggedness to the rear view.
The interior employs tactile synthetic leather to create the image of a natural-looking silhouette wrapped in thick leather, and bentwood-inspired wood tones and piping throughout, presenting a casual air of quality. A panorama roof, used for the first time by Toyota, is equipped with electric shades and electro-chromatic windows.
The new Harrier uses the TNGA (GA-K) platform for its basic structure. This creates a highly rigid body with a low center of gravity in pursuit of both ride comfort and vehicle driving performance with a focus on driver sensitivity.
India arrival of Toyota Harrier is not expected anytime soon.
