The novelty, which will receive a platform from RAV4, has already debuted in the home market.

On Monday, April 13, in Japan introduced the Toyota Harrier crossover of the new, fourth generation. With the change of generation, the popular Japanese SUV moved to a new platform, and also got a completely new body. Outwardly, the novelty became more aggressive due to sharp and dynamic lines, and also acquired a more sophisticated and luxurious design. Noticeable changes have occurred in the cabin of the crossover: a new dashboard, a modified center console, a grown-up multimedia screen. When decorating the interior, the manufacturer used new materials – eco-leather and three types of wood.

 A spectacular panoramic roof with electric curtains and electrochromic glass adds luxury.

The new Toyota Harrier is based on the GA-K modular platform, which makes it similar to the new RAV4. In length, the novelty reaches 4,740 mm with a wheelbase of 2,690 mm. After the generation change, the motor line will become a little less diverse – the brand left two engines for the crossover. This is a two-liter atmospheric engine that produces 171 hp, as well as an e-Four hybrid, consisting of a 2.5-liter engine with 178 hp. and electric motor. Two CVTs are offered for the transmission role, depending on the chosen modification. The drive can be front or full.

 The public premiere of the next Toyota Harrier is scheduled for June this year. However, due to the emergency mode that was introduced in Japan in connection with the coronavirus epidemic, plans may change.
